1980s

American Psycho Patrick Bateman

Christian Bale plays Patrick Bateman, a wealthy investment banker whose life revolves around superficial excesses like restaurants and fashion. He leads a double life as a serial killer, but it’s his obsession with Huey Lewis & the News that truly makes him an American psycho.

Marty McFly

Michael J. Fox plays Martin “Marty” Seamus McFly, the main character in the Back to the Future series. When he hits 88 mph in Doc Brown’s DeLorean, he accidentally goes back in time, and must do everything in his power to avoid wiping out his own existence.

Richard Simmons

Richard Simmons is best known for his aerobic video series “Sweatin’ to the Oldies”. It’s hard to tell what’s more eccentric, his personality or his choice of workout gear.

Robin Sparkles

Canadian popstar, Robin Sparkles, was most well known for her hits “Let’s Go to the Mall” and “Sandcastles in the Sand”. The pressures of stardom got to her though when she had a meltdown on live TV with the debut of Robbin Daggers and “P.S. I Love You”, her ode to long time crush Paul Shaffer.

Fred Savage in The Wizard

Fred Savage as Corey Woods co-stars with Rilo Kiley in The Wizard, a 100-minute Nintendo commercial for Super Mario Bros 3 and the Power Glove. I love this outfit. It’s so bad.

Ernest P. Worrell

Ernest P. Worrell, better known as Ernest Goes To…, is a bumbling but good-natured handyman. He was so popular in the 80’s that he was able to cross over from local TV commercials to a franchise spanning 10 films. It’s not too hard to replicate his outfit, but that face is another story. Knowhutimean?

E.T. and Elliott

It’s Halloween 1982, and Elliott’s on a mission to get E.T. back to his home planet. His alien buddy may be a nudist, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t bundle up for his epic bike ride.
