Instant 5 Piece 1980s Costume Set for Women

5 Piece Instant 1980s Costume Set for Women by Zac's Alter Ego

For this post, I'm going to take a look at a fantastic new, easy to wear  5 piece 1980s costume set for women by Zac's Alter Ego. If you want an instant 80s look without worrying about the size of the costume and the hassle involved with sending it back if it's wrong, then this outfit is for you!

I also like this set because you can add your own top, which allows you to add your own unique twist and reduce the chances of other people at the party/event looking exactly like you!

There are two styles available and both include an elasticated tutu skirt which will fit most sizes. The first set includes a leopard print skirt, black lace hair bow (on a headband), long black fishnet gloves, black fishnet tights and black beaded necklace.

The second set includes a black skirt and the same accessories in pink, rather than black.

The set represents excellent value and you only need to add a top to complete your look. However, as the skirt is a tutu, it is a little translucent. I feel it may have been better to include leggings with the costume. I would suggest wearing either a black mini dress, shorts or a leotard under that tutu.

You may like to add jelly bracelets and leg warmers to make it even more 80s. To make your look more Madonna-like, add a black lace bra and fishnet top. You can use a black sports bra if you're not comfortable with the lace - many ladies do!

So to recap the positives of this costume;

1. It's easy to wear.
2. You can add your own choice of top.
3. It's not expensive.

Negatives

1. The skirt is rather thin.

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)
