    Need ideas for an 80s theme party

    Going to a party thing on saturday and then into town, need ideas for an easy to do 80's fancy dress.

    I don't really wanna go in 80's attire, everyone says just stick some random coloured stuff together but i think everyone will be doing that and calling it 80's.

    was thinking maybe a ska rudeboy (very early 80s) lol.

    Or maybe something like Ferris bueler style.

    Any other ideas? One person is going as Rambo, another as Jimmy white :-|

    Yeah ska was my first choice cause i love the music and want the excuse to dress that way, shame i don't have a fitted black suite. lol.

    Some one I knew went to a recent 80's party as a rubiks cube !! She got a cardboard box, cut holes for her head and arms, painted it to look like a rubiks cube then wore it out. Looked pretty funny actually :-D
