We take a look at some of the exclusive Halloween offerings from 80stees.com!
Halloween is a special time of year, the one time when the inner geek a lot of us keep locked up securely is able to break free and let loose. In some cases it means we get a really cool Halloween costume, or in other cases it means we get locked up for the night with other equally disturbed Trick-or-Treaters. Either way it’s going to be a good time.
We decided to test out a sampling of Halloween costumes from 80stees.com, who while may be better known for their huge selection of geek chic t-shirts, have an equally impressive selection of costumes for the All Hallows’ Eve fanatic in you. All the costumes are available at 80stees.com with fast shipping to get you ready for Halloween.
Everyone who spent countless hours working around the levels of Super Mario Bros. 3 can relate to the awesomeness of this Tanooki inspired hoodie. Simple yet effective, the Racanooki comes with an adjustable tail and a promise of a night of high five’s and nostalgic awesomeness. Also prepare for heat, as the stuffed hood can get a little warm.
This is the most expensive costume we are looking at is also one that most easily impresses. Obviously the skeleton bodysuit is a mainstay of Halloween, but this particular version is a durable and comfortable fit that can easily withstand a night of spooky debauchery. Make sure you order the proper size, as spandex can still be fairly unforgiving if not sized properly, and watch out for that crane kick.
Easily the best costume of the pack, it comes with the facemask, Superman t-shirt (unripped), and suspenders. The mask is a little stiff and may not be recommended for long parties, but nothing can really beat walking into a room in full costume with the patented one-liner to shut down the party and set the night off right. Not to mention a sweet Superman shirt for year round geeking.
While this costume was one of the most anticipated, the reveal was disappointing. It comes with the vest he wears for the majority of the first and second film, as well as the terrific hat that will supposedly be the coolest thing in the future. The problem is a small one for some, and larger for others, as the two pieces of the McFly costume are never really worn on film together, and rubbed this continuity nerd the wrong way.
We weren’t expecting a whole lot from the G.I. Joe Baroness costume, which was a good thing. The bodysuit had an odd fit, coupled with body armor that wasn’t nearly adjustable enough. The wig turned awkardly attractive into horrifyingly Ringu scary, and the body suit made a horrible swishing sound that would draw the wrong kind of attention.
An failed attempt at a Cheetara type costume, it offers an uncomfortable and unflattering fit that would be hard to wear throughout the entire evening. Our models recommendation was to kill it with fire, showing no love whatsoever for the Cheetah Lady.
So a few hits and misses from 80stees.com, but a couple of great and easy costumes shone out. With the huge selection of costumes (and other 80s themed items) available, you should have no problems finding your own hit for Halloween.
