1980s Fads and Fashion Colouring Book for Adults

Back in the 1980s, colouring books were viewed as something you bought for your kids. However, these days they have become increasingly popular with adults, and they are a great way to relieve stress and induce calmness. Back to the 80s: Fads and Fashion Colouring Book is proving to be a very popular choice with adults, but, of course, the kids and grandkids can also join in, too! Please note, though, that these illustrations are quite complex, so they might be a little overwhelming for young children. Published by Lightburst Media, the A4 sized paperback features a glossy cover and 35 detailed illustrations with an 80s fashion theme. These will provide many hours of enjoyment, and there is enough here to keep you entertained for weeks. Thankfully, the illustrations are printed only on one side of each page, which is always a good idea with colouring books as the colour can bleed through if you're using felt tips - I prefer pencils myself! You can go wild with your colouring skill

The Young Ones 80s Comedy Tribute T-shirt

While BBC1 was still airing traditional comedies such as The Two Ronnies , this off-beat sitcom found a cult audience on BBC2, and helped bring the new wave of alternative comedy to our attention. It was violent, it was surreal, and it was a refreshing change from the old-school comedy which was starting to look a little stale. So who was your favourite character? If I had to choose, then it would probably be the melancholic and pessimi

Crazy For Swayze T-shirts

Crazy For Swayze Ladies T-shirt If you had a bit of a thing for Patrick Swayze back in the day, then you were certainly not alone. The American actor became an 80s heartthrob after starring in numerous movies including The Outsiders, Red Dawn, Young Blood, Dirty Dancing and Road House, to name but a few. This popular and colourful Crazy for Swayze T-shirt features the actor with blonde locks, as he was in the wildy entertaining 1991 action thriller Point Break, in which he starred as a surfer known as Bodhi.  It's very much a 90s shirt, and features a relaxed, boyfriend fit. It's made from 100% soft cotton and available in ladies sizes from X-Small to X-Large. You can also buy the tee in an XXL size from the Retro Tees Store on Amazon. However, if you're after something to wear at an 80s event, or maybe something with larger size options, then you may like this unisex T-shirt which is available from Amazon in blue or grey in a full range of sizes from small to 5XL.
