What is it with the '80s for Halloween? There are a lot of 80s costumes and accessories for sale both online and at the Spirit stores. I got some pictures at the Spirit store in Gilroy, California after work today. Naturally they have accessories to look like Madonna or Cyndi Lauper or an
'80 rock groupie and a whole endcap of Michael Jackson accessories. I only shot a small part of that endcap because
personally I think that was quite enough. I did not see single person dressed as him last year even though it was predicted it would be a popular costume then. And there are the colorful wigs, the leg warmers and the gel bracelets--all very '80's.
This is certainly not something I would consider for Halloween, not right now at least. I grew up in the 80s and I graduated from high school in 1989, so I was a true 1980s child. Not to sure I want to relive the decade just yet, at least not for Halloween this year.
Oddly enough yesterday from Netflix and I received and watched the 1989 film "Earth Girls Are Easy." I missed this the first time somehow, not that it really mattered to me. It was an OK film and very definitive of that decade.
