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

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...   The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEnroe&

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)
