16 Embarrassing 80s Halloween Costumes We All Wore
The 1980s were a golden age for being a parent around Halloween. Gone were the days of making a costume from scratch. As these pictures prove, everybody had a cheap, store-bought plastic costume.
I remember them looking a heck of a lot cooler than this. Yikes.
You remove that magic markered spider on the chest and that kid's ready to rob banks.
But still, bonus points to the parents who made a homemade Spider-Man costume. As we'll see further down, the store bought ones weren't so hot.
The biggest and most perplexing costume trend in the 80s: A giant illustration on the child's chest that looks exactly like the mask. Really hammers home the authenticity.
Of all the cheapy costumes, this might actually be the best. It actually looks sorta like Spider-Man as opposed to a plastic rain poncho.
Bravo. You might just be the only kid to actually look cute in one of these. Might be because you are sporting the uber-obscure "Scaredy Cat" costume.
You had to feel bad for the kid in the Luke Skywalker getup. All the others are pretty cool, but Luke looks like a recycled Timmy from Lassie mask.
