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

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
