The Terminator Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 (T-800) T-shirts

Three Terminator T-shirts featuring T-800 Cyborg

It's only a couple of months until Halloween (how time flies as you get older!) and I thought I'd inspire you with an 80s T-shirt idea that you can wear.

Skynet's first cybernetic organism was the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 (or T-800), and as an endoskeleton makes the perfect choice for a Halloween or horror T-shirt theme. In the first movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, of course, plays the role of the cyborg antagonist, who's sole mission is to terminate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton).

The first two movies were truly jaw-dropping back in the day, and remain my two favourite sci-fi movies of all time. So let's take a look at some of the best T-800 designs that are worthy of being worn to celebrate these iconic movies by the legendary James Cameron.

Ther Terminator Model 101 Cyborg 80s Graphic T-shirt


The Terminator 1984 80s Triangle Graphic T-shirt


My top choice is this so very 80s themed The Terminator T-shirt. This is an awesome design, but it unfortunately only comes in 3XL for some reason! However, you may like the one underneath which is also very 80s with the triangle graphics, and the T-800 looks even more menacing on this one. I also like the use of the original red 1984 movie logo. It's available in sizes from small to XXL for men. 

The Terminator T-800 Long Sleeve T-shirt, Black


My next choice is this dramatic The Terminator long sleeve unisex shirt (which is officially licensed) featuring the head of a Model 101 and the 1984 movie logo. It's available in sizes from small to 2XL, although it only comes in black, but this is, of course, the ideal colour for a horror theme and allows the graphic to really stand out. It's available on the Terminator store at

The Terminator T-800 Cyborg Head T-shirt


This design is also available on this short sleeved T-shirt which is available for men, women and children in sizes up to 3XL. Once again, you can choose any colour so long as it's black! 

Women's Black V Neck T Shirt with T-800 Cyborg Face Graphic


There is also this women's V Neck T-shirt available from the same supplier on Amazon.

Terminator 2 Logo T-shirt with Arnold Schwarzenegger and T-800 Face


Just when I thought I'd found all the best designs, along comes this one! This features the Terminator 2 logo and a fantastic Arnie/Borg graphic revealing half of the T-800 and half of Arnie's face. It's very striking, but the sizes are limited to small and medium, sadly.

The Terminator 80s Sunset T-800 Graphic T-shirt, Welcome To The FutureT-800 Syberdyne Systems Model 101 Sunset T-shirt


These two designs are more 1980s sci-fi and less horror, but they look great and both are available from Cloud City 7, a very reputable supplier on Amazon who I have used many times. I really like the outrun sunset backdrop on both of these. 

The first one features the chilling message "Welcome to the Future" and is available in sizes from small to XXL for adults. 

The second one has the text "T-800 Cyberdyne Systemes Model 101) and comes in the same sizes for men. Guess what? Yep, they're both only available in black! 

Terminator No Fate T-800 T-shirt


Here we have another really eye-catching design on this No Fate Terminator Tee. The T-800's face is truly menacing on this one (don't have nightmares!) and comes in a big choice of sizes from small to 5XL for men. It's available from Cotton Cloud on

I'll leave you with some more great designs to have a gander at...

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 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
