Funny 80s Mullet Wigs

If you're planning on dressing up for an 80s party or festival then a wig is essential for creating a fun look. If you want to get people around you laughing then a mullet wig is almost guaranteed to do the job!

The most popular 80s wig that is sold through my website (simplyeighties.com) is the first one featured here. I've labelled it as a Jason Donovan wig because it reminds me very much of the hair style that he adopted when he played Scott Robinson in the Aussie soap Neighbours - how I miss coming home from from a hard day at work and putting my feet up on the sofa to watch the latest episode.

This isn't the cheapest wig option, but it's certainly one of the better quality ones and has, so far, been highly rated by customers.



Amazon has a particularly good range of mullet wigs, so it's well worth giving them a visit.

Versatile 80s Party Stickers

If you're about to host a 1980s-themed party or event of some kind, then one of the most cost-effective ways to brighten up the decor is with the use of 80s stickers. It's surprising just how effective and versatile they can be, and yet, very few people actually realise that you can buy stickers with an eighties theme.

You could use stickers to create your own party invites, seal envelopes, add to party bags, decorate bottles and jars, or simply stick to a door or wall. You can also use them to personalise your laptop, phone etc, or maybe your kids/grandkids would like one or two for their skateboard or scooter.

You can dind a pretty huge range of 80s themed stickers at Redbubble. This is a site I use often, and which supports independent artists, which means that some designs are unique to the site.

Create a Blues Brothers 80s Movie Costume

The Blues Brothers film is very memorable for a number of reasons, and it had everything a decent 80s movie should have; Two well-known actors (John Belushi and Dan Akyroyd), mouth-watering chase sequences, amusing dialogue and infectious music with lots of appearances by big name singers including Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker, to name but a few.

For a movie or 80s-themed party, or maybe a stag/bachelor night, a Blues Brother's theme is a great idea, and it can also be a low-cost option if you dress-up wisely. The most essential part of the look is a Fedora/Trilby hat, black tie and Ray-ban wayfarer shades. Don't worry, though, as you don't need to spend a fortune on original items.




The versatile costume kit above includes a fedora style hat and Wayfarer style shades and can be bought very cheaply at Amazon - this is cheap option for group dress-up. The kit can also be used to create a 2 Tone/Ska or gangster look, too. Kits can also be bou…
