Hey girls and boys....So I just got a last minute invite to a Halloween party Friday night. I'm not a little girl, so I'm not dressing in anything 'sexy', 'slutty' or revealing.  I am pretty sure I want to go 80's like. But I need ideas.  I'm going to crimp my hair, I have hot pink/neon green sneakers i can wear, but thats it. I'm tapped for ideas...and $$$.   Please craftsters...I know you have great ideas!! Help me!!

blue eyeliner, pink blush, hair in a half pony tail kinda off centered. What about double layered socks or was that 90's? Lots of bracelets, the plastic kind if you have some.

As a teenage from the 80's, here's my two cents.  Tease you bangs up ( if you have them).  Leg warmers, worn to the knee, not slochy.  Maybe 80's concert shirts.  Fishing lure style earings. Long fake pearl necklace, I usally only wore one unlooped, but you could do several. kinda like Madonna, Like a Virgin Look.
Our do a google search, I came up with this site right off

http://www.prebble.com/80sFashionFile.html

It has a whole list of hair styles and asscessories.

good luck,  I'm having Friday night dance flashbacks now.

we just put together an 80's costume for a friend of mine. we got legwarmers (from walmart!) and biker shorts to be worn with a short skirt and bright red tights (all from walmart too!) took a shirt cut out the neck and splattered it with paint. top it off with big tacky plastic hoop earrings, bangle bracelets, and crimped hair. oh, and we got a $3.50 pair of those boring plain white sneakers (gee, from walmart too  Tongue). the whole costume cost around $20.....

I was also a pre-teen and teen in the 80's, and as far as I'm concerned, there will never be a time like it ever again!

My fave accessories were little socks with lace trim, wearing them with pumps. I ofeten paired this with a mini-skirt and colored tights. If you need good coverage, we also wore half-buttoned baggy shirts with a wide belt at the waist, and youd often see a tank top under that. usually shirts had shoulder pads for that boxy look. Anything neon or splatter painted was "rad". Also, you'd often see words like "Radical" and especially "Awesome" written in glitter paint. I also wore a lacy sash in a bow on top of my head! And who could forget headbands over the forehead. And twist-a-beads. And gummy bracelets. And "Hello Kitty" before Japanese cartoons were ever popular.
*Breaks out into the chorus of "Memory"*

I think an ultimate 80's shirt would have the inside out, hanging off the shouder (flashdance) look, with the word "Awesome" on the front. If yer gonna carry a purse it needs to be either HUGE or tiny, preferably out of denim and maybe with a unicorn on it. Unicorns were big in that era.

I notice a lot of those skirts people are making (and also seen em at walmart and on girls) are very reminiscent of 80's "valley girl" skirts, and some of the colors lately are 80's, like hot pink and black stripes and such. That was our thing...
