Which Costume Will You Choose?

One of the most difficult aspects of buying an 80s fancy dress costume is actually deciding which look to go for. I mean, there were just so many looks created in the great decade weren't there? A new fashion trend seemed to start with each new movie or pop video release!

So, will you choose one of Madonna's influential outfits from her film and music video releases - Desperately Seeking Susan and Like A Virgin spring to mind, or how about the more sporty aerobics or cheerleader look? Maybe, you want to relive the power-dressing era with those huge shoulder pads?

Of course, I can't make the decision for you, but, hopefully, the following pages will help you faithfully recreate one of the many crazy, over-the-top eighties fashion styles. If you were/are confused by it all (I certainly was) then I would recommend visiting our 80s Fashion pages to get a better understanding of the more popular styles around. Most of them were pretty outrageous, which makes them ideal for fun dress-up, of course!
