Punk Anarchist Costumes for Men

Punk Anarchist Costume for Men
Punk rock started around the mid 1970s and developed into many different styles in the early 80s. It was not only the music that was anti-establishment, but the clothing, too. Tartan was popular with the upper classes, and punks wore it to rebel against them, along with offensive T-shirts, ripped clothing, leather jackets, safety pins, spiked and studded jewellery etc.

Punk fashion is a fun fancy dress idea which is also ideal for Halloween, and this anarchist outfit includes a jacket, top and tartan trousers. As with most fancy dress costumes the accessories are not included, allowing you to accessorize the outfit however you desire. Here are some suggestions.

You may prefer this alternative outfit which comes in three sizes and includers the jacket, Anarchy shirt, ripped plaid trousers and belt. Please note that the spiky punk wig will need to be bought separately. Here are a couple of suggestions.

These pin badges are a fun idea and will add the finishing touch to your costume. If you plan on using your costume for an 80s event, then you'll obviously need to leave out the 1977 badge.

One of the most popular and best-remembered punk hairstyles was the mohican or mohawk. If you want to turn heads with your costume then a wig will do the trick.

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

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 …
