80's Fashion Party Ideas

80's Fashion Party Ideas

Author: michael

There are several party theme now, here I got a ideas-- the 80's party!! Wow, for being a 80's, this sound wonderful. Listed below are my advice about how to prepared for the party. First, the invitation templates are in Word format and should be printed on card stock. Loads of 80's posters. Animal print/brightly colored/ or black and white tabletop items. Animal print or neon balloons.Votive and tall tapered candles everywhere- very popular in the 80's.

Toys. When you grew up for the 80's like me, or older, you would keep in mind good toys built to last. Check these out: Rubber band powered airplanes, metal kazoos, slide whistles, an original slinky, parachute jumpers, and even more. I'm thinking these will make some excellent and memorable prizes and/or gifts for an 80's theme party.

Food. What kind of food to serve is obviously another essential part of planning your 80's theme party. I don't believe a hostess/host ought to be concerned a whole lot with serving foods just popular in the eighties, you may o.k. limit your guests' eating enjoyment. Also, bear in mind, most foods and recipes were around in the 80's in a single form or any other. I would recommend leaving remembrances of the 80's into your decor, atmosphere, music, gear, games, party favors, gifts, etc.., You wish only the best foods served your party. Candy cigarettes, Canada mints, Candy buttons, Banana splits, Bridge mix, Charm necklaces and bracelets, Candy lipsticks, Candy rings, Charleston chews, Chunky bar, Circus peanuts, Jelly rings, Licorice pipes, Nik-l-nips wax bottles, Freshen-up gum, Fruit striped gum, Bubble gum cigars, Pastel party mints, Pixy stix, Pop rocks, Razzles, Ring pops, Pecan log rolls, Pez refills and dispensers, Rock candy, Sky bar, Swedish fish, Whistle pops, Wax lips, Wax fangs, and Mustaches, and also the U-No bar, ok!!

Games, Songs and Dance.. Name the song or artist- Breakup into even teams and share each team a buzzer. Start by playing an 80's tune. The earliest team to either guess the song title or artist correctly wins a point. If the team knows the artist and title they get 2 points. First team to 30 wins. The teams should collaborate quietly before yelling a response unless they're positive they know the result. If a team, or an individual person on a team, yells out an inaccurate answer, they has got to somehow finance their faux pas by doing something.... like lose a degree, need to take a drink, must do an 80's dance move, answer a truth or dare question, push-ups, or whatever you think has to be fun punishment for problem child. Name the theme song for Tv shows popular with the 80's. The very same can be played using theme songs for Tv programs that were popular in the 80's. If you buy a TV show theme song CD, be sure you get a compilation of the original tracks of the songs used on the program and not get an orchestra's cheesy remake. The 80's is the decade when dirty dancing first became popular with the movie Dirty Dancing . A fun activity could be a dirty dance contest. This really is tastefully done for the conservative. May not be as exciting, but none-the-less you will be able to face others the very next day easier. The contestants can choose their partner and their favorite 80's song they would like to dance to. Everyone then votes within the winners.

It's also advisable to have a 80's hairstyle, shoes, fashion make-up and dresses, watching a 80's movies together, discuss the famous new in 80's or just some fun stuff that happened in one of you, all of the will remind of you the happy time in 80's. Have fun with the 80's party, aftertaste you last time!!

IT Service Management Bridge Exin Certification Exam

If you’ve already accomplished professional validation of foundational skills and knowledge in the IT service management, or ITSM, discipline, and are interested in expanding your credentials to demonstrate a professional level of competency, then you’ll want to consider completing the Exin Associate Bridge of ITSM Exin certification exam (ITSM20ASB).



Prerequisites for the Exin ITSM20ASB include the attainment of at least two prior certifications at the practitioner or intermediate levels in the Exin ITIL classification. Each exam in this category confers a certification upon successful completion, as does the ITSM20ASB exam, which means that by the time you best your Associate Bridget of ITSM certification exam, you’ll have achieved at least three credentials for building your reputation and expertise in your field of focus.



Though hands on experience and application of Exin ITSM knowledge in your everyday work duties can certainly contribute to your success on the ITSM20ASB exam, though nothing negates the need for focused study and exam prep. To ensure you pass your ITSM20ASB on the first attempt, you’ll need to employ a strict study plan and measure your knowledge attainment as you proceed with your studies.



There are 40 questions on the Exin ITSM20ASB exam, and you must earn a minimum score of 65 percent to pass. That’s the equivalent of at least 25 correct answers on your test.



Your study plans may include formal training courses, and Exin has a recommended list of training providers on its website. Self study, use of tutorials, and the ritual of periodically testing your progress through the completion of practice exams, are also recommended for success. Providers such as TestsLive.com offer exam engine resources and practice tests to round out your preparation activities.

The Exorcist as a 1980s Sitcom

No wonder we all thought we had it good in the Reagan years--we had a non-stop laughing track in our brains.
Green vomit is much more entertaining with a laugh track!

How Many Do You Remember? 80's Cartoons!

Fat Albert
Of course, the first show in the video is Fraggle Rock, which wasn't a cartoon... But apart from that, a great video (and after all, Fraggle Rock has been animated since then, so maybe it is acceptable?)

The 80s Punk Look

While many older people remember the 1980s as the time punk got into the mainstream of American culture and threatened society, truth is that 1980s punk was as safe as today's pop music. 1980s punk legends like Billy Idol and Adam Ant seem to have used punk as a means of expression and to stay unique, rather than because they were giving their lives to the cause of punk.

Adam Ant

Still, the 80s style of punk-rock is very unique in the history of punk, music, and fashion, and when looking for costumes, the 80s punk-rock star is a great one to go for.

 

Billy Idol

How to Create the 80s Punk Fashion Look!
By Deni Griffiths

80s punk fashion was influenced greatly by celebrities in the music scene, such as The Ramones, Sex Pistols and Billy Idol. We also loved Vivyan from The Young Ones. This meant punk fashion had a wider, commercial audience.

Starting in the 70s, punk fashion was as a statement of rebellion. Clothes and outfits were personally designed by the individual, to enhance the rebellion statement.

Punk fashion is quite a broad cross section from glam punk to goth punk. Therefore, you should be able to grab a few characteristics from any area relating to 80s punk, and pull off this 80s fancy dress costume easily.

As the girls have heaps of fun choices when it comes to 80s fancy dress, 80s punk fashion, is a fun option for plenty of guys to get into the 80s spirit.

Most notably, you will be able to create a mohawk, spray paint your hair and wear studded belts.

Studs and spike will be the key. Look for these sorts of items when creating your punk look.

Oh yeah, and don't forget the safety pin! Where do you wear the safety pin? Well, as an earring, (Attach to a sleeper or similar - not directly through your ear lobe) or as a badge/accessory anywhere on your clothes. Rip an 80s retro tee shirt, and hold it back together with your safety pin.

 

  • Denim jacket
  • Leather jacket
  • Ripped 80s tees
  • Denim jeans
  • Plaid mini skirt
  • Plaid pants
  • Denim mini skirt
  • Doc Martin boots
  • Black boots
  • Studded belt
  • Studded wristband
  • Studded collar
  • Large safety pin
  • Large, dangley earring for the left ear
  • Facial piercings
  • Hair gel - Super strong
  • Coloured hair spray paint
  • Hair spray - Super strong
  • Patches and badges for your jacket
  • Studded or leather fingerless gloves

The good news, is that you can acquire and buy a lot of this gear cheap through the charity shops for the clothes, and online.

 

There are quite a few awesome 80s costumes, props and gear available for under $10.

Also, I highly recommend for you to browse through my site, via the link below, to get some cool visual ideas.

Deni Griffiths loved growing up in the 80s, and is thrilled to see 80s influences, sneak back into fashion. It has happened steadily over the naughties. As we move into the tweenie teenies, there is evidence in music clips, magazines and movies, that it's cool to have a fun and zany taste in fashion. Some commentators have put this down to the gloom of the financial crisis, and they may be right.

Also, most of you would have heard about 80s themed parties by now. They are very popular, probably due to the really cool music, and fancy dress fun you can have. Are you hosting or attending an 80s fancy dress party?

It's Time To Go Retro 80's

80s Retro
 It's Time To Go Retro 80's by Matthew W. Grant

It was the decade of decadence. It was about glitz and glamour as well as baubles, bangles, and beads.

Elizabeth Taylor dropped in for Luke and Laura's wedding. Lady Diana became the People's Princess when she married Prince Charles. Nighttime soaps like Falcon Crest and Dynasty ruled television. President Ronald Reagan ruled the United States. Kevin Bacon danced his way across the screen in Footloose. Michael Milliken was the Junk Bond King. Cyndi Lauper showed her True Colors.

When did all this take place?

We can only be talking about that terrific time period the unforgettable eighties.

Here are twenty-one ways for you to verify that you're a part of (or belong in) the 1980's.


1. Breakdancing on the sidewalk looked like fun. Now it just looks like you might break something.

2. You can still recite dialogue from any movie starring Molly Ringwald.

3. You remember paying by the minute for long distance telephone service and you can still hear the tune from the phone company commercial when they encouraged you to "reach out reach out and touch someone."

4. You had at least one of the following: a My Little Pony, My Little Buddy, a Rubik's Cube, or something with a Pac-Man logo on it.

5. You first heard about the Human Genome Project in the science newsletter your teacher would pass out on Friday afternoons. You also remember how this was supposed to lead to the eradication of disease.

6. You were tuned in the exact moment that thousands of radio stations across the world played "We Are The World" at the exact same time. (Now, you're singing it!)

7. Your first album was a vinyl 33 and you laughed at your parents because they wanted to play 45's and 8-track tapes.

8. You know who Oliver North is and why he was in the news.

9. Someone on your street or neighborhood sent his or her life savings to a later discredited televangelist.

10. You laughed at the Golden Girls on television and now you wonder when you and you're friends became the Golden Girls.

11. You remember when Reagan met Gorbachev in Reykjavik, Iceland for a summit.

12. You and your friends made fun of the "I've fallen and I can't get up" lady. (The fictional woman was named Mrs. Fletcher and the product was the LifeCall emergency service.)|You and your friends made fun of the "Where's the beef?" commercials for Wendy's starring Clara Peller.}}}

13. You think the word "like" in an integral part of every sentence and should be used as often as possible. Like this, "She was like, like why would I say that, that's not like me at all. Like who does she think she is, you know? Like, really!"

14. You know there was only one way Dorothy on the Golden Girls could make Sophia behave. She simply said, "Shady Pines, Ma, Shady Pines."

15. You've actually tasted New Coke. Extra points if you wrote to Coca-Cola and insisted they bring back the original formula.

16. You remember a time before cable television and satellite channels.

17. Your parents were afraid you'd cut yourself putting on a snap bracelet.

18. You were inspired by
Geraldine Ferraro, the first (and as of this writing only in a major political party) female Vice Presidential candidate.

19. Renting horror movie sequels about Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and Michael Myers took up a lot of your time.

20. If someone says, "I don't know," you automatically cringe expecting the green slime to mysteriously fall from the ceiling.

21. You wore out your thumbs playing video games on any or all of the following consoles: Atari, Intellivision, Sega, Nintendo, and Coleco.

The Literal Video Version of Total Eclipse of the Heart

The Literal Video Version of Total Eclipse of the Heart

While most of us look at the 1980s with nostalgia mixed with embarrassment, some people take the next step: Total Eclipse of the Heart has moved from a 1980s pop hit to a 2000s ironic karaoke hit, but in 2009 it went through the next transformation. Thanks to some new lyrics describing the video, it has become a YouTube hit. Here's one of the funniest videos I've seen: The Literal Video version of Total Eclipse of the Heart.
