If you are looking for a few useful pointers to inspire you in the 80's direction, we at Simply Fancy Dress are only too happy to help. There is a real mixture of 80s fancy dress costumes in this category, showcasing some of the terrible/terrific trends that were around during the decade.

The boom in mass cultural figures meant the 80s has left a massive legacy in fancy dress terms which is why it is such a popular choice for parties. In addition to the music and film inspired costumes created in honour of earlier decades, the 1980s saw the first computer games to inspire costume designs with Super Mario and his brother Luigi ever popular choices for 80s fancy dress parties along with Pacman, Street Fighter and the Space Invaders costume.

Musically speaking, the 1980s saw the rise to prominence of two iconic pop legends Madonna and Michael Jackson, both of whom are represented extensively here, alongside homages to Freddie Mercury from Queen, Adam Ant as Prince Charming and Boy George.

The 1980s was also a decade for some great films, resulting in a number of costumes, including the ever popular superhero Batman who was reinvigorated on the big screen, major successes Top Gun, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice and ET, along with costumes that would make a great crocodile hunter.

The 'style' if we can call it that was somewhat lacking in taste which is just great for fancy dress now! Remember poodle perms and mullets? What about the dreadful shell suit? Neon bright colours also feature heavily in 80s costumes and conjure images of the decade with ease.

So what are you waiting for ... go choose and knock 'em dead with your great tasting costume!
