One of the most interesting things you can wear this Halloween is a costume representing an iconic show of the decade. Most people turn to famous movies; TV shows are often overlooked. One interesting gem is the little-known 80s show called Small Wonder. It would be a great idea to create a costume to honor this show. For fun, see how many people know what show your costume is from.
Another interesting way to honor the decade is to dress up like a famous toy. Some of the toys of this era are interesting, which should make your costume quite creative. An example of this are the characters from the Rainbow Brite lineup. The characters are very colorful and can really make you stand out from the crowd. The toys were well-known but still peculiar enough to give some people a challenge when trying to figure out your costume.
The Wrestling World
The wrestling industry always had fans, but the 80s saw an explosion in the industry. No one could have predicted that the sport was going to get this famous amongst mainstream audiences, but it did. Some of the wrestlers became household names throughout the country, and it might be a great idea to use this to your advantage. One of the most famous wrestlers at the time was Hulk Hogan. You can show your love for the sport by checking out some Hulk Hogan costumes.
There are a host of popular bands that you can get inspiration from, like The Police to Bon Jovi. The looks these bands debuted were definitely creative and interesting. These looks are unmistakably 80s, making them great looks you can consider. You are probably going to have to wear a wig to pull off some of these looks, unless you already have enough hair to complete the look. It might not be such a bad idea to get a couple of friends to dress up with you to complete the ensemble. You should memorize at least one song from the band, just in case you are called to perform for fun.
Of course, these are just some of the characters that you can use to make the 80s come alive for you, your family, or your friends this Halloween season. There are many others, including characters from famous movies that you can use, too. The 80s is full of great characters waiting for you to explore this year, so do not settle until you find the one that truly captures your attention, but hopefully these tips help guide you in the right direction.
