Punky Brewster

When it came to rambunctious 80’s icons there were few that could compete with Punky Brewster. Armed with her dog, a motley crew of friends, and a mismatched wardrobe, Punky won over the heart of Henry and the American public alike. All you need for the same look are a few layered shirts, ripped up jeans, and mismatched shoes.

Tina Belcher

Tina, the eldest daughter on Bob’s Burgers, takes teenage angst to a new level. Her functional retro style takes her from mornings pining over Jimmy Jr. to evenings flipping burgers. With the time left over, she can practice Capoeira… or at least make sure her siblings stay out of trouble.

Thomas Magnum of Magnum P.I.

Tom Selleck played the role of Thomas Magnum in Magnum, P.I. He made life in Hawaii look hard as a private eye by driving around in a Ferrari, donning short shorts and smoking the occasional stogie.

Miami Vice

Miami Vice is a 1980’s TV show that starred Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas as two vice detectives working undercover in Miami. Their look was characterized by pastel or brightly colored T-shirts under suit jackets. Don’t forget to show a few chest hairs to complete the look.

Mr. Bean

Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) is a childish and self-centered buffoon who turns everyday tasks into catastrophic disasters. He lives alone with his best friend Teddy, doing his best to fit into society. He does such a poor job, rumor has it that he’s an extra terrestrial.

Log Lady

Dressed in earth tones and red glasses, the Log Lady could easily pass as anyone’s peculiar aunt or even Sally Jessy Raphael’s doppelganger. However, it’s her timber fashion accessory that really sets her apart. Of course, we don’t expect you to scour the woods for a clairvoyant log. You can just use your imagination on that one.

Bubbles

In Trailer Park Boys, Bubbles (Mike Smith) is instantly recognizable from his coke-bottle glasses, western shirts, and entourage of kittens. He might have child-like mannerisms, but he’s probably the smartest of the bunch. And let’s get one thing straight: Bubbles might live in a trailer park, but he doesn’t live in a trailer. No, he lives in a tool shed.

Sawyer in The Dharma Initiative

In Lost, James Ford, alias Sawyer, alias Josh Holloway, is a handsome and charming con artist whose sarcastic personality belies a more tender side. Following a chain of events too convoluted to describe in mere words, he ends up as the head of the DHARMA Initiative, alias Jim LaFleur. Or something like that.

Nanny from Muppet Babies

We never see Nanny’s face in the Muppet Babies series, but her characteristic green and white striped stockings and purple sneakers always stood out. Though we assume she’s human, it’s also quite possible she could be a Muppet as well.

Consuela

Consuela is the head of the Maids’ Union and is the world’s most stubborn maid, who often makes her point by repeating “no, no, no”. She’s employed by the Griffin Family as well as by Superman, Darth Vader, and James Woods. In her off time she helped Mexico beat Canada in curling.
