80's Womens Costumes

Break out your headphones and pop your favorite cassette tape into your Walkman, because we're heading on a trip back in time to the 80's! A time remembered for Rubik's cubes, boom boxes, big hair, and vibrant, neon color schemes; the 1980's were a decade that was filled with some of the most outrageous fashion of all time! Check out the 80s Halloween costumes that will make you wonder if this fashion will real or just a bad joke.

Possibly the biggest style icon of the 1980's was the Material Girl herself, Madonna! Ladies sought to emulate her street urchin style, which led to the rise of skirts worn over leggings, crop tops, big hair bows, fishnet gloves, and rubber bracelets! She wasn't the only musical artist taking over, of course! Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, and Cyndi Lauper are just a few of the other big names associated with the time. Elsewhere in the pop culture industry, arcade and video games had become their own major industry thanks to games like Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Donkey Kong, and Space Invaders. The film Flashdance came out in 1983 and increased the popularity of already rad aerobic attire, like legwarmers and off the shoulder sweatshirts. TV saw the first appearances of iconic characters like Jem, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Beetlejuice. There is an 80s costume for all of it!
