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.
