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.

"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.

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.
