Create a Back To The Future 80s Costume

Back To The Future Marty McFly Costume Accessories


Marty McFly Back To The Future Costume

Of all the movies to come out of the 1980s, Back To The Future is certainly one of the most iconic and memorable. This makes it ideal as a theme for an 80s or movie themed costume party.

Firstly, you can buy a ready-made Marty McFly Costume as shown above, although it's not cheap! However, it will save you the hassle of finding all of the separate components. The costume is available in five sizes and is very highly rated by customers. However, those Nike trainers/sneakers are not included, but I'll come to them in a moment.

Also available at Amazon.com in the U.S.

Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly


McFly, of course, was the lead character in the film played by Michael J. Fox.

A cheaper option is to buy a sublimation shirt. This is a T-shirt with a costume printed onto it.

Back To The Future Marty McFly Costuem Shirt

This officially licensed costume shirt is available at Amazon UK

You can also buy it at Amazon.com.

Now I'm going to show you how to put together your own costume.

Men's Red Bodywarmer

This red gilet (bodywarmer) by Result at Amazon UK has a very similar design to the one worn by Michael J. Fox. It's reasonably priced, too.

However, I found this red padded bodywarmer by Regatta for an even better price.

Esprit Check Shirt for Men

I found this Esprit check shirt which, I think you'll agree, looks very similar to the one worn in the film. It's a tad expensive, so you may like this cheaper alternative by Coofandy.

Be sure to tuck the shirt into your jeans. By the way, these should be blue denim and you may well already have a pair in your wardrobe.

Stonewash Denim Jacket


Now add a stonewash denim jacket. I've picked out this one by B&S Trendz, as it has the right look and feel and is reasonably priced. However, you may want view the full range of denim jackets at Amazon as there are plenty to choose from.

Nike Court Royale Trainers


Although Nike trainers with a red sole and logo are simply not available (trust me, I've looked everywhere!) this pair (Nike Court Royale) is about as close to the originals as you're likely to get. However, they are pretty pricey and not all sizes were available when I checked.

Nike Brutez

Basic White and Red Trainers
You may prefer this much cheaper option which will be more than adequate for a fancy dress costume. The main focus of your outfit will be your top half rather than the footwear.

Casio 80s calculator watch

If you really want to go the full hog, then you can also add this classic Casio CA-53W calculator watch which is the same model as McFly wore in the film.

Now, go and find yourself a Delorean DMC-12 and you're ready to party!

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
