Twister Fancy Dress Costumes

Twister Costume for ladies
Twister costume for ladies (UK)

Well, I remember having a pretty fun time playing the Twister game back in the 1970s and 80s and getting into all sorts of awkward positions! Just about everyone remembers the game, and now you can celebrate your childhood with official and unofficial Twister board game fancy dress costumes for men, women and children.

Twister Costume on ebay

If you're looking for a bargain then be sure to check out ebay. Many costume suppliers are on the site and prices are very competitive.

The Twister dress above is available from a number of suppliers on the Amazon websites, and there is a particularly good choice on the U.S. store. The links above point to everything that is available at both stores.

Being the miser that I am, this is just one of the reasons that I often use Amazon, as you can compare the many suppliers who are selling on the site, and they are also pretty trustworthy, of course. The Twister dress is a popular seller on my 80s website simplyeighties.com, too, and it's a quirky alternative to the more obvious 80s themed costumes.

The Men's official costume is based on a jumpsuit and is expensive compared to the ladies outfit. If you're looking for a good fancy dress idea for a couple then this is a pretty unique one. However, I could only find one supplier selling this costume on ebay and nothing at all on Amazon. Therefore, the link above is not guaranteed to show any costumes. However, scroll down a little for details of a cool-looking second skin costume for men.

These outfits are ideal for retro-themed parties and are almost guaranteed to be the subject of many a conversation at any party or event. Please note that the prices quoted are subject to change.

The cheapest costume of all this poncho. Now, it's not really supposed to be used as a costume, but if you're really tight-fisted and they have forecast rain, then it may be ideal for you! Seriously, it's perfect for retro themed festivals and a quirky way to protect yourself from the elements.

Twister Second Skin Costume for Men

Second skin or Morphsuit style costumes are also popular these days, and is more than one supplier selling this outfit on Amazon. The prices vary greatly for the exact same outfit, so I have linked to all that is available above.
Girls Twister Dress Costume (UK)

Girls Twister Dress (US)
There is a huge range of dress costumes available for girls at the U.S. Amazon and they vary in price and design. However, the choice was limited at the UK store and the prices are extortionate. Trying to link to everything available proved problematic, with many unrelated costumes being displayed.

Although still a little expensive, the pricing and range of costumes is better than on Amazon. I highly recommend trying the link above as there are lots of top suppliers selling brand new, "buy it now" outfits here.

The following items are the lowest-priced I could find (as I write) on both Amazons. This pictures also give you an idea of the different style available at a glance.

Another toy that is synonymous with the 1980s is, of course, the Rubik's Cube. There is a wide range of costume designs available from the dress above, to 3D cube outfits.

Cafe 80s T-shirts

Anyone who has watched the Back To The Future Part II movie (1989) will know the Cafe 80's was the nostalgic, but deliberately badly designed restaurant in Courthouse Square, Hill Valley which Marty McFly and Doc Brown visited in 2015 - in 1985 it was Lou's Aerobic Fitness Center.

If you're looking for a great 80s T-shirt or costume idea then a Cafe 80's theme is a quirky idea which is simple to create. Add the baseball cap that McFly wore in the film for a simple, but effective costume.

Back To The Future II Cap
Marty McFly Baseball Cap
 You will find several suppliers selling this hat at both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.

Cafe 80's Baseball Raglan Sleeve Tee
Cafe 80's Raglan Sleeve Ladies Shirt

This unofficial design is my favourite from all the Cafe 80's tops I've seen and features raglan sleeves to give it a retro baseball style. It features a skinny fit and comes in three sizes for women from 10 to 16. This design is only available in the UK, so apologies to our U.S. readers. However, see the next design below...

Official Cafe 80's Tee for Women (US)
Although this tee doesn't have the raglan sleeves, it does feature the official logo from the movie and comes in five sizes up to XX-large. This one is only available in the U.S. at Amazon.

Light Blue Cafe 80's T-shirt for Men
Men's Cafe 80's T-shirt
This design is available from Cafepress through Amazon UK and comes in three colour choices. I couldn't actually find the design on the actual Cafepress website, which is quite bizarre. If you're from the U.S. then you'll find lots of suppliers selling this design (for men and boys) at Amazon.com and you can sort through them for the best price.

You will also find this design available for a great price at 8Ball T-shirts who ship to both the US and UK, as well as Australia and Canada.

Ladies T-shirt by Truffleshuffle
This soft feel, slim fit Tee by Truffleshuffle at Amazon UK has a distressed look logo and comes in three sizes. If you're from the US then you will find a similar design at 8Ball T-shirts who have very competitive prices.

Pepsi Perfect Cafe 80's T-shirt for Men
Pepsi Perfect T-shirt for Men
An alternative design is this one by Skreened available at Amazon.com. You may remember that Pepsi Perfect was sold in Cafe 80's for a whopping $50 per bottle! This shirt comes in a big choice of colors and sizes.

You'll also find a similar design available at Redbubble.com (who ship worldwide) along with a nice range of other Back To The Future inspired designs. Below is every Cafe 80s related shirt I could find. All of these designs are available for men and women and can be printed on a wide range of tops.
