    Our friend's birthday is close to Halloween so he always has a themed costume birthday party. We've done white trash, rejected superheroes and many more. This year is totally 80's. I need ideas - specific looks or characters or people. Hopefully something that can easily and cheapily be done at the goodwill. So far I've just been thinking cruel summer overalls Bananarama. Mainly because it'd be nice and comfortable. :p What else have you smart kids got for me to ponder?

    Dress up as Boy George and walk around all night asking people (in a dead straight voice) "Do you really want to hurt me?"
