Pac-Man Ugly Christmas Sweaters

Knitted Blue Christmas Jumper with Pac-Man and Snowflake Pattern Graphics
Official Pac-Man Ugly Christmas Sweater

It's almost time to dig out your ugly Christmas sweater again, but if you feel like buying something a little different this year, then you may like these Pac-Man themed jumpers which are just perfect for anyone who grew-up in the 1980s and played the video game in the arcades or on their home console or computer such as the ZX Spectrum or Commodore 64.

The first knitted jumper here features the loveable muncher himself wearing a red santa hat, and also the four ghosts Blinky, Inky, Pinky and Clyde. It also includes "waka waka" text which, of course, refers to the sound of Pac-Man moving across the maze munching his pellets (also known as cookies and Pac-dots). There is also the traditional style white snowflake pattern running across the body and arms.

So where can you buy it from? Well, it's being sold on the Num-Skull store on Amazon.co.uk and is available is sizes from X-small to 4XL.

Next we have this machine-knitted ugly Christmas jumper which also features the Pac-Man wearing a Santa hat and the four ghosts. However, the patterning is very different and includes a clever Christmas Tree shaped maze. It's officially licensed by Bandai Namco and available in sizes from X-small to 3XL. Now, I say ugly, but I actually actually think it looks pretty awesome!

This next one is actually a printed sweatshirt rather than a jumper, but I really like the design and it is cheaper to buy than the two jumpers above. It comes only in black and is available in sizes from small to XXL. I really like the big snowflakes on the arms and the Christmas Tree maze really stands out and will certainly get noticed!

By the way, you can play Pac-Man for free at my website Simplyeighties.com. You will also find a full range of Pac-Man T-shirts

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

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)

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&
