It’s getting close to that time of year again! Time to think about what you (or your kids) are going to be for Halloween or that 80’s party you just invited to. There’s no need to panic — i80s has you hooked up with lots of 80’s costume ideas to choose from!
Some of the eighties styles are actually back again so you can find lots of day glow or fluorescent colored clothes, checkered clothes and shoes, and punk-ish type attire (without being too punk-ish of course) at your local shopping mall. This way you can accessorize your (or your child’s) 80’s costume quite easily.
Wham! costume (can also be used for just a normal 80’s dude or chick) – White pants, a CHOOSE LIFE or similar large lettered shirt (men’s)(woman’s), white sneakers, and do your hair up in an eighties kind of way (women – teased, sprayed, blown) (men – also blow-dried and/or gelled).

While we here at i80s.com are fanatics about well, just about anything 80’s related, this is the first time we’ve seen someone just a bit more fanatical about an 80’s toy than we are. In any case, we thought it would be cool to post this interesting Rubik’s Cube illusion.
The person who posted the YouTube video mentions that this is another version of the Rubiks Cube Poster Illusions. The goal was to make it look like an unsolved rubiks cube from one angle …then slowly it changes to a solved cube.
If we find other versions of this illusion, rest assured it’ll be posted on i80s.com!
