Retro 80s Monsters - Halloween Costume Ideas

There's nothing I enjoy more than curling up in front of the fire on a cold, wet evening while watching an old monster or horror movie on the TV. I'm particularly fond of the old black and white movies, and those from the 70s and 80s - the more ridiculous the monster, the more I enjoy it!

For this post, I bring you a selection of ideas which could be used for 80s, Halloween and horror themes parties and events.

Skeletor from Masters of the Universe

Remember the 80s cartoon series? You can become He-Man's biggest enemy, Skeletor.

This is certainly not the cheapest option for a Halloween or 1980s themed costume, and you may want to consider the alternative hoodie costume by 80s Tees, which is cheaper, but still looks very effective.
If I was to choose from the two costumes, then I would go for the Hoodie. Customer reviews suggest that the mask in the first outfit is rather ill fitting.

80s Costumes for Women - Top 25 Ideas

For this post, I bring you my Top 25 costume ideas for an 80s party. They're actually in no order of preference, but if you're stuck for an idea on what to wear to a retro/1980s themed event then this list should help to give you some inspiration, at least.

For my first selection, I've linked to Amazon UK, but I have also provided a list of outfits with links to Amazon.com (US) underneath. Unfortunately, my coding for a page jump doesn't appear to work in Blogger (although it works at my website), so you'll need to scroll past this first selection if you're viewing in the United States - sorry for the inconvenience caused!

The idea of this post is to help you quickly find a costume idea for an 80s party/event/concert, without having to scroll through hundreds of products at Amazon, many of which are unrelated or repeated items from different suppliers. I've sorted out the wheat from the chaff, so to speak.
