Back to the 80s – A Guide for Men Comments Off
Who doesn’t love the 1980s? It was such a fantastic decade, with so many difference fancy dress options to choose from. Here are our favourites:
The 1980s really was Queen’s decade. They had hit after hit after hit throughout the ’80s and everyone loves all of them! Freddie Mercury’s trademark moustache and yellow leather jacket have become instantly recognisable… all you need to do is brush up on your performance skills… the Show Must Go On…
Another incredibly iconic look, Adam and the Ants were massive proponents of the New Romantic era, with their amazing outfits and memorable dances. If you like your make up, and you want to be Price Charming, this is the 1980s costume for you! Ridicule is nothing to be scared of…
Michael J Fox wasn’t just Marty McFly, you know. He also played the original Teen Wolf in 1985 – before it was made into a TV show. This outfit comes with gloves, a wig and a beard – so all you need to worry about is your wolfy growl! Awooooo!
Every child of the 1980s remembers Wacaday, where Timmy Mallet and his cockatiel Magic played Mallets Mallet with contestants who either won an amazing prize such an LP, or a big plaster with “WAC” written on it. (They don’t do TV show budgets like they used to!) All together now… Mallets Mallet is the word association game where you mustn’t pause, mustn’t hesitate, repeat a word or you get a bash on the head like this or like this. The one with the most bruises loses. Look at each other and say Blaahhh!
When we weren’t dancing to Queen or Adam and the Ants, we were watching Teen Wolf or Wacaday and eating our Sugar Puffs, right? This costume will take you right back to your childhood with a mask, jacket, gloves and furry boot covers to ensure you look just like the real deal. Now all you need to do is practise going “monster mad for the honey!”
