Ghostbusters 80s Movie Costumes

Ghostbusters Halloween costumes for men and women

Who ya gonna call? Well, you don't have to call anyone actually, but If you're stuck for a fancy dress idea for Halloween or an 80s party, then these popular Ghostbusters costumes fit the bill perfectly.

Of course, the franchise became popular once more after the release of the new film in 2016. The re-boot received mixed reviews from critics, and the original 1984 movie still remains THE one to watch!

These costumes are ideal for groups and couples, and heads are sure to turn when a group of ghostbusters are seen patrolling the streets!

The biggest range of outfits for both adults and kids (at the lowest prices) can be found on ebay and Amazon with both 1984 and 2016 themes.

The men's costume consists of a beige jumpsuit with a large, inflatable backpack and authentic Ghostbusters logos. The ladies outfit has a smaller backpack and includes either a dress or jumpsuit (two styles are available), hat and belt, and also has the logos.

You can also dress-up as the giant Stay Puft marshmallow man. He is one of the best-known characters from the film who created chaos near the end.

Ghostbusters Marshmallow Man Costume
"Stay Puft" Inflatable Marshmallow Man Costume
This inflatable costume has received a lot of positive feedback from customers and would be a real head-turner at a carnival or any party. Be warned, though, it can get very hot inside the costume, so it's not ideal in warmer weather.

There are also many suppliers selling this costume on ebay, and it's well worth checking the site as the prices are very competitive.

How about one of these T-shirts;

If you can't be bothered dressing up or you're strapped for cash, then why not consider a simple T-shirt like the one above? I've seen many people turn up to a party wearing a T-shirt as their costume. There are many other accessories available and you can read about these on the Ghostbusters page at my website

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
