Why not plan your own retor feel 1980s costume party with costmes, costume accessories and patyware available here at Karnival Costumes online party shopA few years ago the 80s were a decade that people tried hard to forget and had you suggested holding an 80s costume party you would have been met with laughter. Now that a suitable period of time has elapsed, we now look back on the 80s with a sense of nostalgia. 80s fashions have made a comeback, 80s movies are being remade and 80s trends are influencing today's clothes, music and styles.
