Cheap 80s Costumes for £6.99

Is it really possible to buy an 80s themed costume for just £6.99?

Yes, of course, otherwise this post would be pretty pointless! Okay, I admit there isn't a lot of choice and there is nothing available for Men, just the ladies. So let's take a look and what you can get with under £7.

I Love 80s Dress for Women

This dress by So West Fancy Dress features a colourful 80s graphic. It doesn't include any accessories, but for the price you can hardly complain. You can add as many or as few 80s accessories as you choose.

Please note that all prices in this post are, of course, subject to change. Therefore, I have included price widgets which will display the very latest prices.

Mario Dress Costume for Women
Mario Dress Costume for Women

This Mario plumber outfit is pretty complete and includes a stretchy dress, gloves and hat. It is not available in sizes 14-16 and 16-18. The price includes delivery! Size 8-12 is available from a different supplier, but at a higher price. Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros were extremely popular video games during the 80s, so the theme is ideal for 80s dress-up.

Polka Dot Skirt Costume
Polka Dot Tutu Set for Women
Polka dots were popular with celebrities including Strawberry Switchblade, Madonna and Princess Diana during the 1980s. This polka dot skirt with matching bow and gloves isn't quite a complete costume as it doesn't include a top, but just about any dark top will suffice and it is the skirt that is the showpiece. Add some bead necklaces to complete your look.

As mentioned, the choice of outfits is limited, but I was surprised to find anything available for the price, to be honest! Grab yourself a bargain before the prices rise.

Back to the Eighties T-shirt
Back To The Eighties T-shirt
This is just about the cheapest 80s T-shirt available for women and it features a vibrant geometric design very reminiscent of the decade. Of course, at this price it's not likely to be hard-wearing, but for an 80s night out it's ideal.

I Loveheart the 80s T-shirt for Women
I Loveheart the 80s T-shirt

This T-shirt is pretty cheap, but the customer ratings pretty good, although comments suggest it is a little small and clingy. Please note that the T-shirt is not an off-shoulder design and comes with a round collar. It comes in three colours in sizes ranging from 8 to 20. I would suggest ordering at least a size up, particularly if you want to wear it off one shoulder. T-shirts were very much over-sized and baggy in the 80s, so two sizes up would be a safer bet.

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

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...   The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEnroe&

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)
