1. Pam & Tommy – 90’s California Rock n’ Roll
When dressing as a real person you can spend hours trawling through google images looking for the right one so we at Funplace.ie have come up with a few suggestions for some of her iconic looks.
To create that perfect Pamela look you’ll need to start with plenty of fake tan which I’m sure most Irish girls have in their closet!
Baywatch – Starting at the start of her career Pamela Anderson played CJ in the hit series Baywatch. Based on a California beach there were plenty of beautiful bodies running in slow motion through the sand!
Barbwire – In this movie we see Pamela Anderson in action. She wears a catsuit similar to this along with a gun.
Teamed with a white tank top, jeans and some chains, Tommy Lee, eat your heart out!
2. Barbie & Ken – another classic but this time from mattel
Barbie and Ken’s popularity has been bubbling upwards ever since we heard the movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling was being shot in LA.
For Barbie, you can choose from any of our 80’s gear for example something like this
And for Ken we have these awesome 80’s shirts. Team shirt with a pair of shorts & loafer shoes for that 80’s preppy look.
If going out in your debs dress or tux is more your style, check out these fab Barbie and Ken kits.
3. Mime clowns – we can’t hear you!
Are you looking for a costume that speaks volumes?
You’ll be lost for words when you see these ones (sorry, couldn’t help it!)
Tell a story of French romance or spend the night acting the clown.
The great thing about these costumes is that they come with the costume and face paint.
One Mime face paint tutorial later and you’re ready to go!
4. The Shining Twins – Bloody hell!
From the classic movie The Shining comes these terrifyingly creepy bloody twins. If you’ve seen the movie you’ll never forget the image of the twins asking Danny to ‘Come Play’!
If you both love a horror look at Halloween this is the costume for you!
5. Surgeon & Botched patient – like OMG WTF!?
We’ve all had it up to here with programmes like Botched and the Kardashians who have normalised cosmetic surgery so how about making a dig at it by going as a Plastic surgeon with his Botched Cosmetic Surgery result.
6. Stranger Things – Jim Hopper, Eleven, Steve, Robin, Will, Eddie – Hellfire Forever!
The great thing about Stranger Things is that you can choose from a number of characters. Check out this 80’s Sheriff costume that Jim Hopper would wear, pair it with a stick on moustache and you’re sorted. For Eleven we have this shirt, Wig & Braces. We also have Steve & Robin’s iconic ‘Scoops Ahoy’ costumes including a mullet for Steve! If you’re planning a DIY costume we have wigs for both Will and Eddie.
Now that you’ve been given a few awesome ideas, grab your BFF and get cracking!
