Are you looking for a Halloween costume for adults that isn’t too “adult”? (You know what I mean). Yeah, you’ve seen some of those inappropriate costumes in the party stores. Instead, why don’t you travel back to one of your favorite decades?
1980s Halloween Costume for Adults:
Oh, did I say, one of “your” favorite decades? Ha! Well, I actually meant one of mine!

To create my totally bitchin outfit, I rummaged around in some sale racks and junk bins from various stores…and I may or may not have had that belt in the back of my closet!
Here is how you can achieve this awesome 1980s look:
Start with these pink legwarmers or even these pink legwarmers that come in a set with other awesome accessories! Because after all, what is an 80’s outfit without legwarmers!
A simple black and white zebra print cami always looks fashionable for an 80s look…and this one is super inexpensive!
Finally, add on an armful of bangle bracelets and you are done!
Actually, I wore this rad ensemble last year for a school party. Each year I co-chair an annual event at my kids’ school and that year we went with the 80’s theme! Ironically, the adults seemed to enjoy it more than the children but it was really like totally fun for everyone!
(Right now I am a bit delirious planning this year’s event or else I don’t know if I would ever share such a silly picture with the world!)
In addition to the totally tubular attire, we also made some “centerpieces” for the tables. Unfortunately, we had like totally no budget to buy things so we had to be creative.
Thankfully, a local dollar store donated square boxes and we painted them black. Then we cut out different colored paper squares and glued them to the outside. Who didn’t own a Rubik’s Cube in the 80’s? Although, I could never figure out how to solve it, could you? Do you remember those geniuses who could twist it around a few times and be done? It must have been some kind of optical allusion or magic trick because I could play with that thing for hours and never get those colors aligned. Seriously, I was like so bummed that I couldn’t get it! Just not my thing I guess…
Anyway, our budget did allow for a DJ and he had those kids rocking to some gnarly tunes and even taught them the Electric Slide. But it was the parents that enjoyed it to the max!
Anyway, I hope I gave you a fun idea for a 1980s adult Halloween costume!
You don’t want one of those icky store bought costumes anyway. I mean, really – gag me with a spoon! Fer sure!
If you and the dog plan on joining your kids for trick or treating, here are some fun costume ideas for them!
Have you ever worn a 1980s Halloween costume?
(If my co-chair is reading this…aren’t you glad I cut you out of the picture?! I am sure you would kill me!) Back to working on this year’s party….
