80s and 90s Retro Horror Movie Characters T-shirt

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought it would be a nice idea to write about a quirky retro horror T-shirt which I recently discovered. It features iconic horror movie characters from the 70s, 80s and 90s, and is ideal for wearing for Halloween, and would make a super gift for retro horror fans.

Black T-shirt featuring horror characters driving the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo
Retro Horror Movie Characters T-shirt

The imaginative design features cartoon style caricatures of six well-known classic horror movie characters riding in the Mystery Machine from the Scooby-Doo cartoons. 

So let me run through the characters for you. Firstly, we have the hockey-mask wearing Jason Vorhees from the Friday the 13th movies at the wheel, sat next to him is Ghostface from the 1996 film Scream (and its sequels), Chucky from the Child's Play franchise (the original film came out in 1988) is peering out of the side window, Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) is at the side of the van, Freddy Krueger from the A Nightmare On Elm Street movies (the original came out in 1984), and that very creepy psychopath in the white mask, Michael Myers, from the Halloween movies are both sat on the roof.

This unofficial fan art T-shirt is very unique and is guaranteed to be a conversation starter with all of the recognisable characters. The Mystery Machine alone (which first appeared in the Scooby-Doo Where Are You? cartoon series in 1969) is one of the best known cartoon vehicles ever! 

The adult T-shirt is made from soft cotton but is only available in black. However, this is the perfect colour for a horror theme, and it makes the graphic more prominent and the focus of attention.

It's being sold by Platform 9 co on Amazon, and comes in a full range of adult sizes from small to 5XL, although only in black. But at least there is a size for everyone.

If you are looking for a unique horror shirt then this is most certainly one to consider, and it will look great at any time of the year!

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 or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an
