We all remember the original Where's Wally books don't we? Maybe you don't, but they were first launched in 1987, and in North America are known as Where's Waldo? They were created by the children's author and illustrator Martin Handford. Whether you're male or female, if you're stuck for a good 80s fancy dress costume idea, then how about dressing-up as the legendary Wally or his girlfriend Wenda? This is also a great idea for couples dress-up.

The cheapest Where's Wally Fancy Dress option is the half costume as featured above, which includes the red and whire striped T-shirt, bobble hat and round glasses. Please note that the walking cane is not included. The costume comes in three sizes; medium, large or extra large. Where with blue chinos or jeans.

The second costume comes with the blue trousers, although obviously is going to cost more. Also be aware that trousers included with fancy dress costumes can often be ill-fitting, as you cannot choose the exact sizing.

If you're on a tight budget or you need to buy costumes for a group, then the option above is for you. It's available from Paper Umbrella at Amazon, and is excellent value.

I've hand-picked the best-rated costumes for women above. Both are available on Amazon, and the first option is, by far, the best value as I write. You can also choose from six options allowing you to choose which accessories you would like to include, which is useful if you're on a tight budget.

However, you may prefer the longer pencil skirt in the second costume.

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
