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

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we
