Quick and Easy 1980s Tutu Costume Sets for Women

For this post, I am going to do just what the title suggests and show you the quickest and easiest way to create a fun 80s costume using tutu sets. These are widely available at low prices and usually include a tutu skirt (obviously!), leg warmers and fishnet gloves. Some sets also include other accessories such as a beaded necklace. They're more widely available in the UK, although there are now one or two appearing in the U.S. as suppliers are finally realising how popular they are,



Obviously, the more accessories included with the tutu the more you will have to pay, but they're a great way of creating a quick and easy 80s look. All you need to add is a baggy T-shirt or sweatshirt, preferably worn off one shoulder. By buying a tutu kit (rather than a complete costume), you can make your look more individualistic by adding the T-shirt/top of your own choice. Most sets also come in a range of colours, too, (usually pink, green, orange, blue and yellow), which means you can choose something to suit you. The elasticated waist on the tutu skirt makes them easy to wear (one size fits most) and the sets are also ideal for charity fun runs and hen nights (bachelorette parties in the U.S.).

As mentioned, there aren't many (if any) sets available for adults at many U.S. costume stores, but I managed to find a couple at Amazon and a wide variety at ebay.

ebay have, by far, the biggest choice of brand new, buy it now 80s tutu sets for adults in the U.S. It is pointless displaying individual items from ebay, as products are added and deleted on a regular basis, but the link above will show you everything available.

As you can see, Amazon's British store features a wide variety of products. However, don't be envious if you're from the U.S., as you will find many of these sets at ebay using the link above.

ebay UK also has a great choice of products at very competitive prices, and they often come in two size ranges - standard and plus size.

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

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet 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 s

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)

Create Your Own E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Costume

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was the highest-grossing movie of the 80s, and many regard it as one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. The Spielberg classic tells the story of a lonely boy named Elliot who becomes friend with a stranded extra terrestrial who needs to get back home - we all remember that classic "E.T. phone home" moment, don't we? If you're looking for a unique costume idea for a 1980s, sci-fi or film and TV party or event, or maybe Halloween, then an E.T. costume should fit the bill for both men or women. Adult Elliot Costume (US) Adult ET Costume (UK ) Now, you can buy a ready-made ET outfit from Amazon UK or Amazon.com. However, although it's convenient, it's also pretty expensive, and you can very easily create your own costume for a fraction of the cost. You'll notice that ET is wearing a red hoodie and blue jeans in the picture above for the UK costume. However, in the film, it is Elliot who wears this, and
