Our office is merging with another and I need to make an impact.....and no I'm not going as Sam Fox!!!  I haven't the boobs for that and certainly don't want to make that much of an impact! Any ideas would be very appreciated

I'm sure Wonder Woman was from the 70's but it is very appropriate for me Coops

Pink I thought about Madonna, Material Girl. Then I went on to think about Toyah, Cyndi Lauper and Claire Grogan???  What about Adam Ant? Think it would be cool to go as a boy!

Toyah was 70's

Metal Mickey?  I've probably got some old boxes and a colander to get you going with.

Adam Ant is a good one. I think the key is to be recognisable and not just 'someone in a wig with bad 80s clothes'

Which tends to be my approach because I hate fancy dress and only give it a moments thought. Which I most often regret once I get there.

Adam Ant would be cool.

Or you could power suit it - pencil skirt, big shoulder pads, too much rouge on the cheek bones?

1981 saw the opening of Cats in London, so go as a cat.  The 1980s also saw the fashion industry geared towards new romanticism, with its flamboyant frills - designer Vivienne Westwood styling.  1984 saw Band Aid, so go as Bob Geldof - that would be funny...back combed hair etc, no need to wash... in fact don't wash for a week!

went to an 80s party as Adam Ant last year - most of the girls were cyndi Lauper or Madonna. Toyah was 70s, but mainly 1980s (Wasnt "its a mystery" 1981?). Also think 'Fame', shoulder pads and big hair....
Luvvin it!

that should read 'Toyah as very late 70s, but mainly 80s'

Any 80's cartoon character?? Danger Mouse, Batfink, Care Bears, Fraggles, She-Ra, Rainbow Brite, something like that???

Pink me too.  Hubby and I went to a movie theme fancy dress party a few years ago and we decided an hour before leaving to both go dressed in running gear and he word sunglasses and went as 'Coolrunnings' and I went holding holding a knife 'Bladerunner'. Very, very lazy!

Metal mickey now you're talking!
