Ah, the 80s.  What a time that was.  If you have a son or daughter or who wishes to recreate that time in the form of a Halloween costume, here are some suggestions.

The items needed are make-up, make-up, and more make-up.  In addition, jeans with holes in the knees, a funky shirt, some stick-on tattoos, boots, hair gel, and thick black watches or bands for the wrists.

Obviously, it’s all about the make-up and hair.  The clothes are the accessories in this case.  However, the shirt worn should reflect the 80s.  A punk rock band shirt or perhaps you can make a really fantastic punk shirt using your creative talents, a white shirt and drawing logos from that time, or quotes and terms used during that period.

Let’s begin with the make-up.  Heavy eyeliner, worn on the eyelids and under the eyes, red lipstick, eye shadow; the more colorful the better, mascara, and thick eyebrows just about cover the facial part of this costume.


For the hair, there are two ways to set about making a punk hairstyle.  Either purchase a pink or blue punk wig or use hair gel to spike the hair.  The hair can also be styled into the Mohawk or the Tina Turner look.  You can even spray on some color to the tips of the spiked hair as well.

A chain belt would be cool as well.  A black leather jacket, if you have one, would definitely be appropriate to wear.  There are some pictures of 80s punk rockers who wore spiked chokers and wristbands.  Thick bangle bracelets were in as well as large psychedelic earrings.

Gloves can also be made to reflect the era by adding studs to them.  Also, if you can find a pair of wild sunglasses, they would complete the entire outfit.  One more item you may wish to add.  No punk rocker is complete without a guitar.  If you can find a cheap guitar with a shoulder strap, this would certainly enhance the look.
