Man, we had an 80s party about 4 years ago that was hysterical (I hate the 80s, btw). We really went all out...Capri Sun and Fruit Rollups for appetizers, party favor bags including Garbage Pail Kids, safety pins with friendship beads (you know what I'm talking about), "Where's the beef?" stickers, etc... We set up the Atari and I had about 6 hours of mixed tapes I made off of my roommates extensive record/tape collection. Big piece of cardboard on the floor for breakin. I wore parachute pants with the obligatory bandana around the leg, this totally assy mesh shirt and jelly bracelets. Scary time. I'll have to post some pics...

Don the eyeliner, white warpaint across your nose and cheeks, briad your hair, wear boots, a puffy shirt (like the pirates) blue suade trousers and a blue suade jacket with massive cuffs, and go as Adam Ant.

I had the world's best 80's party costume. It was in college. Everyone was dressed as punks, legwarmer girls, bruce springsteen, etc. I, however, chose to be more creative:

I wore khaki pants, a pale blue shirt, a navy blue blazer, a red and blue striped tie, and a pin that said "Reagan in '84: Bring back the Gipper!" I was, of course, a Reagan Republican.

It went over great. Too great, in fact. At the party were a bunch of members of the Syracuse chapter of the College Republicans. They loved me. During the heat of the party, they crowded around me, cheering, picked me up over their heads and paraded me around the room shouting "Reagan! Reagan! Reagan!"

Scared the shiat out of me.
