The ‘80s are filled with lots of cultural icons and dynamic lifestyle changes that make for fantastic fancy dress costumes. Here are a few examples to give you some ‘80s fancy dress inspiration.


‘80s Fancy Dress From Smiffys-Liverpool

The 1980s were filled with lots of moments for fancy dress inspiration. Here are a few ideas for your costumes.

  • Pac-Man
    The iconic and loved videogame Pac-Man was first introduced in the 1980s in the hopes of opening the hobby of videogame arcades to a female audience. As many videogames of the time were violent and focused on male demographics, the creator of Pac-Man Toru Iwatani wanted to create a Kawaii (cute) character. In his quest to create a videogame that appealed to female demographics, he thought of women enjoying time together eating food and when researching the keyword of eating, he found an image of a pizza with a slice taken out of it, which is where the Pac-Man shape comes from.

    Originally the character was called Pakkuman from the Japanese onomatopoeic phrase ‘pakku-pakku’, which describes a mouth opening and closing quickly, somewhat similar to the western ‘OM-NOM-NOM’. However, when the game reached the US picked up by Midway, the name was changed from Puckman to Pac-Man in the hopes of preventing vandalism.

  • The Rubik’s Cube
    Whilst it was originally released in the ‘70s as the magic cube, the well-known puzzle toy was first called the Rubik’s Cube in the 1980s, which then went on to become one of the world’s most popular toys. Originally conceived not as a toy but instead as a way to help people understand three-dimensional problems, the original cube took the creator Rubik over a month to solve as there are 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possible configurations of the cube, enough to cover the Earth in 273 layers of the iconic toy.

    Ladies who are searching for an easily recognisable costume for an ‘80s fancy dress party, look no further than the Ladies Rubik’s Cube Dress from our Liverpool fancy dress shop. Available in a range of sizes from UK dress size 8 to UK dress size 18, this costume includes a multicoloured dress, headband, and a bag; making it a great fancy dress outfit for an ‘80s party.

  • The Explosion Of Music Icons
    The 1980s were a very interesting time for music, arguably one of the biggest cultural events in the ‘80s was the changes to the music industry as a whole due to the popularity of music videos.

    The changing industry saw the size of pop acts such as Michael Jackson with his iconic song Thriller. However, pop was not the only style of music to be empowered by the rise in music videos. The ‘80s say an explosion of different styles of music including new wave, synthpop, house, and saw the rise of lots of heavy metal and glam metal bands, including well known names such as Metallica, Bon Jovi and Guns N’ Roses, who released songs many still love to this day.

    The music scene of the 1980s is a fantastic source of inspiration for ‘80s themed fancy dress. With a diverse range of styles to choose from, you’ll be spoiled for choice. If you’re a fan of the New Romantic scene and loved acts such as Adam and the Ants, perhaps you will be interested in an ‘80s New Romantic Costume. Alternatively, if you’d rather wear a glam metal costume, perhaps you could wear some Zebra Print Trousers, pick up an Inflatable Guitar and rock out.
