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.

Now, there are two suppliers selling this T-shirt on Amazon (which is great value by the way), but there are limited sizes from each one. One supplier has two listings for different sizes, so here are all the links;


Small, Medium, XL (all available in one listing)


As I write, the pricing is the same from both suppliers, but this is subject to change, of course. I have been unable to find a large size, unfortunately.

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 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 Amazon.com. 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
