Create a My Little Pony 80s Unicorn Costume

My Little Pony 80s Unicorn Costume Accessories

For this post, I want to show you how to put together and simple but effective My Little Pony Unicorn Costume based on the one from the original 80s Unicorn and Pegasus  Collection, which will be ideal for the many 80s parties, events and festivals that seem to be increasing in popularity each year.

I found this retro My Little Pony T-shirt on Amazon with the classic rainbow logo. You can base your costume around this by adding a unicorn headband and some accessories.

This unicorn head piece would be ideal for adding to the T-shirt to create a simple costume. It includes the spiral horn, ears and attached wig.

You can replicate the original 80s white, purple and blue unicorn below using white accessories and a wig which I have hand-picked for you below...



My Little Pony cosplay is huge at the moment, and the theme is, of course, perfect for 80s dress-up, too. The toys were introduced back in 1982 and were popular throughout the test of the decade and into the 90s.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

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 scene. However, it wasn't until 197…

Create a Tina Turner 1980s Fancy Dress Costume

Ask anyone to name a few great female singers from the 80s and it's highly likely that they will mention Tina Turner. This lady was huge back in the eighties, with hits including What's Love Got To Do With Itand We Don't Need Another Hero, to name but a few.

If you want to be simply the best dressed person at a fancy dress party, then why not try this gorgeous, shiny Tina Turner dress featured above?  If you're going to an 80s or pop star themed party then this costume is ideal but it can, of course, be used for other fancy dress events.



Although I have linked to the U.S. Amazon store, the costume is not available here, sadly, although you will find a range of wigs and a couple of suitable dresses. However, there are costumes available on ebay, and the prices are very decent. This link will work in any English speaking country.

You can buy an even more authentic-looking dress from Amazon, I remember two very different gold dress that Tina wore back in the 80s, one of …

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

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) accompanied by a big belt around the waist, le…
