80s fancy dress plus sizes - the fun begins here!
80s fancy dress in plus sizes can be anything that you want it to be. When it comes to putting a costume together the first decision that you make is whether you're going to buy or create your own.
Once you know what you're going to dress up as, then you can start to source the clothing and begin to think of the necessary accessories!
If you decide to buy a proper adult fancy dress costume then a good place to start looking is on eBay! There they have a staggering amount of "shops" that specialise in fancy dress. Common themes for women include a nun, a wench, clowns, fairies, cowgirls and burlesque dancers! You can expect to pay from between 30 - 50 euro for these type of costumes and that doesn't include the postage!
Cheaper alternatives include a trip to Penneys and buying t-shirts that you can cut up or spray writing onto. Penneys is a treasure trove of budget accessories that can be put together to create a unique look. Stripey tights, leg warmers, over the knee socks and chunky jewellery can be combined with gloves, hats and scarves to provide an individual and quirky look!
The benefits to buying a ready made costume is that it saves time and you know exactly what you're getting. The disadvantage is that these outfits can work out expensive and sometimes they don't look anything like the advertised picture. In that case you may not have the time to send it back and therefore you might end up having to wear something you're not comfortable with.
