Awesome 80s Wall Clocks - How Cool Are These?

Collage of 80s Wall Clocks

I discovered some very cool 80s themed wall clocks today while browsing Redbubble, and there are literally hundreds of amazing designs created by independent artists which I haven't seen at any other store. In fact, the choice is pretty overwhelming and I could cover an entire wall with these clocks - there are so many great designs.

If you just want go and view them all then here's the link;

80s Wall Clocks at Redbubble

Worldwide shipping is available and you can change your currency on the bottom right of any page.

To give you an idea of what's available, I created the montage above which is the ideal size for posting on Facebook. However, let's take a look at some more of my favourite designs that I've picked out below and just click/select the image to go straight to the item at Redbubble. The prices are actually very decent, too, with most of the clocks available for just £20.

By the way, you can choose from different frame and hand colours, too, which is not something you can do at many stores.

Well, I just love this one! Associated Television was active from 1968 to 1982, and anyone who grew-up in the 70s and early 80s will certainly remember this ident.

Back To The Future Logo Clock

Here is a logo and movie that just about everyone recognises from 1985. Choose the black frame to match the background. A white frame works well as a good contrasting colour.

Cafe 80's Wall Clock

Sticking with the Back To The Future theme, this design looks very cool indeed, particularly with a black frame.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum Wall Clock

Well, this is a must have for any Speccy fan and looks great with a black or white frame. However, there are lots of other Sinclair themed clocks available.

My Little Pony Rainbow Wall Clock

My Little Pony toys first hit the shops in 1981 and grew a huge following during the decade. I particularly like this design, but there are plenty more to choose from with a retro or more modern theme.


BBC1 Retro Clock

This is a clever idea to use the old BBC clock as a background. Just Brilliant!

BBC2 70s Wall Clock

Well now I don't know which one to get - maybe both! But wait, there's more...

BBC Two 80s Logo Clock

In 1986, BBC2 launched this new logo which was used until 1991.

Who doesn't love an 80s triangle? I love the soft, pastel colours.


This one has a similar theme but is slightly bolder.

If you like bold patterning then this eye-catching design may be more your style.

Neon Grid Triangles Wall Clock

Grids, triangles and neon streaks feature in this striking design

So these are all of my favourite designs and I hope you like them, too. Redbubble have, by far, the best range of clocks I've seen with an eighties theme, and the prices are excellent. Don't forget that you can change the colour of the hands which is is very useful if you actually want to see the time!

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images
Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today.

Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on!

I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier!

After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave scene. However, it wasn't until 197…

Create an 80s Party Girl Costume

For this post I'm going to show you how to quickly piece together a costume similar to the one featured above, or create your own variation of it. The main focus of the outfit is the 80s Party Girl T-shirt which has eye-catching, Katharine Hamnett style block lettering in neon colours. Now, you can, of course, use different accessories to create many looks based around the tee. Let me show you how to create the look from top to toe.

The T-shirt

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 o…

Create a Tina Turner 1980s Fancy Dress Costume

Ask anyone to name a few great female singers from the 80s and it's highly likely that they will mention Tina Turner. This lady was huge back in the eighties, with hits including What's Love Got To Do With Itand We Don't Need Another Hero, to name but a few.

If you want to be simply the best dressed person at a fancy dress party, then why not try this gorgeous, shiny Tina Turner dress featured above?  If you're going to an 80s or pop star themed party then this costume is ideal but it can, of course, be used for other fancy dress events.



Although I have linked to the U.S. Amazon store, the costume is not available here, sadly, although you will find a range of wigs and a couple of suitable dresses. However, there are costumes available on ebay, and the prices are very decent. This link will work in any English speaking country.

You can buy an even more authentic-looking dress from Amazon, I remember two very different gold dress that Tina wore back in the 80s, one of …
