Obviously, this is the main component and I've linked to ebay above where there are usually at least a couple of suppliers selling the tee. If you're from the UK then you can also buy the shirt at Amazon. In the United States, there are many suppliers selling tees based on the slogan at Amazon.com.
Shirts and sweatshirts were often worn off one shoulder and were over-sized, sometimes doubling-up as a dress. I recommend ordering at least a size-up to ensure you achieve a loose look. You can buy T-shirts that are designed to be worn off one shoulder at Amazon.

The 80s Wig
This is, of course, optional, but there are literally hundreds of wigs you could use and the orange and turquoise ones featured in the two pictures above match with the colour of the lettering. Orange is very much a Halloween colour and using a matching orange wig and ra-ra/ruffle skirt would be ideal.

Fingerless, fishnet gloves will add an extra finishing touch to your outfit and can be bought long or short and in black or neon colours. Madonna wore black, fingerless mesh gloves in 1985 with a Jean-Paul Gautier corset dress at the American Music Awards to give herself an edgy, punk-influenced look. She also often wore lace gloves.

The biggest range of low-cost 80s skirts is available at ebay and these include the tiered ra-ra/ruffle petticoat style being worn by the girl featured at the top of this page.
The quickest way to complete your look is by purchasing a tutu skirt set with leg warmers (scrunch socks) and fishnet gloves included. There is a huge range available from leading fancy dress suppliers at Amazon UK and the prices are very competitive.
Some sets are now available at the U.S. Amazon store, but you can see a wide range of 80s Skirts, Leg Warmers and Fishnet/Mesh Gloves that can be bought separately.

Alternatively, you can wear footless tights or leggings instead of a skirt. It was also commonplace to wear both a skirt and leggings, sometimes with scrunched-up leg warmers. Plain, paint splatter, neon, animal print and capri leggings were popular. For a Madonna style, use lace tights.
Plain Neon and 80s leg warmers are in abundance at many fancy dress stores and can be bought for just a few £pounds or $dollars. However, the styles are numerous and you can also use striped designs for a more eye-catching look.
