I really have no idea what I'm supposed to wear.

So far I have a headband and tubesocks....



I figured you older guys could help me out with ideas :)

Good God man, can't you Google. Get a pair of parachute pants, cheap Risky Business sunglasses and a bad haircut and you're in business.


Can't the youth of today do any research themselves?

What you're really supposed to wear is some legwarmers. Legwarmers and spandex.

well, I've done that already, but I figured I'd see if you guys had any good ideas.

Make sure to announce your presence by yelling things like "NKOTB rules!" and pick up some hot babes by coming up behind them and saying "You blinded me..... with SCIENCE!"

I trust that you realize this is debatable.

*sigh* I haven't had my nipple pierced since that thread hit page 2. My lip ring has been gone for about 3 weeks too.

AC/DC ,Guns & Roses, or Metalica T-shirt with ripped jeans at the knees would work

take a shitty pair of jeans and bleach stain them. Rip some holes in 'em and throw them in the wash. Go out and get one of those Lacosse shirts with the gator on it and wear your color up.
Then walk around muttering, "sweep the leg Johhny" to yourself all night.

Living through the 80's was enough. I'm certainly not going to a party celebrating that shit. I prefer celebrating decades that I really didn't know such as the Roaring 20's or the 1960's.

Let me know how that goes. If it works I'll have to try that next time I'm at the supermarket. I've never been to an 80's party but I'm sure I'd be completely unbearable if I was at one.

Or you could just go as the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl and wear a choke collar around your neck.

I went to goodwill earlier to get some torn up jeans, and I found a perfect pair, tons of holes, bleach stains, went to go buy it when I check the waist size...

Well that's good as long as you don't run into any Bronco fans, then they can just say "Well good thing you didn't come as a Chiefs fan, it's hard to dress up as an empty stadium."

If you have any Alf or Ghostbusters shirts laying around, they would help tremendously.

okay, so far I have a black punk(ish) shirt my old lip ring (it looks real if I just slip it over my lip) and I'm going to buy some acidwash jeans at a thrift store.

Probably give myself a fauxhawk too.

Two things...

1. Do a google search for Patrick Swayze, Dirty Dancing or Road House...comb your hair like his, if it is long enough.

2. Tight-roll you jeans.


Also, if you have the balls, go in your underwear, Tom Cruise Risky Business style.

You mean pin your acid washed jeans up above your ankles by folding them as you roll them. A nice skinny tie (preferably with some sort of musical reference, like a keyboard) over a colored t-shirt and a suit jacket. Cap it with topsiders and no socks.

A couple of Sex Pistols and Ramones buttons on a pork pie hat would be optional.

In the 80's it was. If all the hair on your legs wasn't rubbed off by your tight jeans, they weren't tight enough.

Nobody in the 80's was stupid enough to pierce their ****ing lip, so you should probably eliminate that from your costume.

The 80's were uneventful so I went straight from the 70's to the 90's.
