Create a Back To The Future 80s Costume

Back To The Future Marty McFly Costume Accessories


Marty McFly Back To The Future Costume

Of all the movies to come out of the 1980s, Back To The Future is certainly one of the most iconic and memorable. This makes it ideal as a theme for an 80s or movie themed costume party.

Firstly, you can buy a ready-made Marty McFly Costume as shown above, although it's not cheap! However, it will save you the hassle of finding all of the separate components. The costume is available in five sizes and is very highly rated by customers. However, those Nike trainers/sneakers are not included, but I'll come to them in a moment.

Also available at Amazon.com in the U.S.

Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly


McFly, of course, was the lead character in the film played by Michael J. Fox.

A cheaper option is to buy a sublimation shirt. This is a T-shirt with a costume printed onto it.

Back To The Future Marty McFly Costuem Shirt

This officially licensed costume shirt is available at Amazon UK

You can also buy it at Amazon.com.

Now I'm going to show you how to put together your own costume.

Men's Red Bodywarmer

This red gilet (bodywarmer) by Result at Amazon UK has a very similar design to the one worn by Michael J. Fox. It's reasonably priced, too.

However, I found this red padded bodywarmer by Regatta for an even better price.

Esprit Check Shirt for Men

I found this Esprit check shirt which, I think you'll agree, looks very similar to the one worn in the film. It's a tad expensive, so you may like this cheaper alternative by Coofandy.

Be sure to tuck the shirt into your jeans. By the way, these should be blue denim and you may well already have a pair in your wardrobe.

Stonewash Denim Jacket


Now add a stonewash denim jacket. I've picked out this one by B&S Trendz, as it has the right look and feel and is reasonably priced. However, you may want view the full range of denim jackets at Amazon as there are plenty to choose from.

Nike Court Royale Trainers


Although Nike trainers with a red sole and logo are simply not available (trust me, I've looked everywhere!) this pair (Nike Court Royale) is about as close to the originals as you're likely to get. However, they are pretty pricey and not all sizes were available when I checked.

Nike Brutez

Basic White and Red Trainers
You may prefer this much cheaper option which will be more than adequate for a fancy dress costume. The main focus of your outfit will be your top half rather than the footwear.

Casio 80s calculator watch

If you really want to go the full hog, then you can also add this classic Casio CA-53W calculator watch which is the same model as McFly wore in the film.

Now, go and find yourself a Delorean DMC-12 and you're ready to party!
