We all remember the original Where's Wally books don't we? Maybe you don't, but they were first launched in 1987, and in North America are known as Where's Waldo? They were created by the children's author and illustrator Martin Handford. Whether you're male or female, if you're stuck for a good 80s fancy dress costume idea, then how about dressing-up as the legendary Wally or his girlfriend Wenda? This is also a great idea for couples dress-up.

The cheapest Where's Wally Fancy Dress option is the half costume as featured above, which includes the red and whire striped T-shirt, bobble hat and round glasses. Please note that the walking cane is not included. The costume comes in three sizes; medium, large or extra large. Where with blue chinos or jeans.

The second costume comes with the blue trousers, although obviously is going to cost more. Also be aware that trousers included with fancy dress costumes can often be ill-fitting, as you cannot choose the exact sizing.

If you're on a tight budget or you need to buy costumes for a group, then the option above is for you. It's available from Paper Umbrella at Amazon, and is excellent value.

I've hand-picked the best-rated costumes for women above. Both are available on Amazon, and the first option is, by far, the best value as I write. You can also choose from six options allowing you to choose which accessories you would like to include, which is useful if you're on a tight budget.

However, you may prefer the longer pencil skirt in the second costume.

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 …
