  • 60s Costumes – Hippie Costume Ideas for a Guy

    60s Costumes – Hippie Costume Ideas for a Guy

    The easiest way to come up with your 60s costumes for a hippie guy look is to buy ready-made pieces from funwirks.com Alternatively, you can make one from the scratch and integrate your preferred features. Of course, an online decade costume store can customize your 1960s costume to suit your taste.

    Hippie Guy Clothing

    If you really want your costume to spell out authentic hippie look, you must embrace clothing items such as bell bottoms, hemp jewelry, tie-dye, and even symbols that are characteristic of the 60s hippie look. These include love and peace symbols.

    Loose-fitting Shirts

    Purchase a loose-fitting t-shirt from a vintage or decade clothing store. Customize the t-shirt for a 60s look by drawing a peace or love symbol or tie-dying it. The Dashiki was a loose-fitting, big shirt style that became a staple in the 60s. It was mostly worn by West African men. Your local thrift store is a great place to look for such popular 60s apparel.

    Bellbottom Jeans

    If you want to go traditional with your hippie look as a guy, you certainly cannot do without bell-bottom jeans. Look for your size online or in thrift stores. Alternatively, you can get an old jeans of yours and cut about 6 or 8 inches opening at the bottom and integrate a couple of brightly colored fabrics to make the jeans’ bottom wider. Don’t forget that your bellbottom jeans should be paired with simple vest.

    Hippie Guy Hairdo and Face

    Clothing alone won’t provide you with very authentic 60s hippie boy look. For a perfect hair that matches your 60s costumes for a hippie look perfectly, stay natural with your hair. It’s better this way than doing anything to your hair.

    But, if you’re not too pleased with plain natural hair, some simple steps can enhance your hairdo. For instance, run your fingers through your hair to finger-comb it. This is a great way to obtain a free-flying and more natural hair appearance. However, you don’t have to finger-comb very short hair. Styling your hair won’t provide you with authentic hippie guy look.

    Accessories

    Real hippie boys back in the 60s wore scarf as headbands to complement their hippie look. Doing the same will also complement your 60s costumes for a hippie look perfectly. Also, full beards, goatees, long sideburns and mustaches were some of the popular facial features that highlighted a hippie look.

    Footwear

    There were three categories of shoes that completed the hippie look back in the days. They are clogs, sandals or barefoot. The trick is to keep it simple but cute. Sunglasses are among the most important part of the hippie look, alongside long neck jewelry with peace symbol.

Anyway, the trend changed in the 90s but the fashion rage from the previous decade did not die down.

Luckily, it only takes some thoughtful planning to put together grunge clothing that would suit any couple. You can start from your closet before moving to your local thrift store.
    One of the great ideas to wear the 90s grunge couples costumes in a different way is to match a faded rock band t-shirt with a pair of baggy jeans. Put a plaid long-sleeved flannel shirt to top it off. Complete the attire with Doc Marten boots. And, don’t forget to put on wool skull caps. This is a perfect 90s attire for a couple. The male should go for masculine colors while the female should stick to more feminine colors for the pieces.
    Hip-Hop It
    Hip hop music was the trend in the late 1980s and the influence it had in the world of fashion spilled over to the 90s. For the guys, replicating a 90s hip hop attire comes in different ways and styles. For instance, you can put on an ultra baggy pair of pants as seen with M.C. Hammer, and pair it with a ripped up t-shirt. Put on a thick chain over the T-shirt.
    Ladies are not left out in the hip-hop 90s fashion. For a perfect couple hip-hop attire, the ladies can wear biking shorts under a miniskirt or simply wear jean shorts. Pair it with a neon tank top. This hip-hop attire won’t be complete without lavish jewelry and a side ponytail hairdo.

  • Ensemble Costumes For Men With 80s Outfits

    Ensemble Costumes For Men With 80s Outfits
    Doing a themed costume with friends or family is a great way get noticed and have fun. When a small group dresses up together, it is memorable - particularly when it involves 80s outfits and iconic television shows from this decade. These are the events that party-goers reminisce about months and years later, and it's not just the women that get all of the fun. Here are three easily recognizable ideas for men from some popular television shows of that time:
    1.    The A-Team included four men with distinctive attire and attitude. Hannibal, Face, Murdock, and B.A. (played by Mr. T). Hannibal usually wore a button-up shirt under a lightweight tan coat and held a cigar. Face was the dreamboat with feathered hair who charmed all the ladies. Murdock wore a baseball cap, leather jacket, and khakis; he was also certifiably crazy. And B.A. had the Mohawk, gold jewelry, and muscular arms and chest. This is a great choice if you and your buddies are willing to get into character.
    2.    Another iconic TV show from the eighties was The Dukes of Hazzard. Although the men didn't wear too much that could be considered exclusively 80's Outfits, Daisy Duke was definitely a trendsetter all by herself. With her tight jeans or short-shorts and buttoned shirts tied up at the midriff, she had women all over the country trying to imitate her. Fortunately, most of the regular cast members were men who didn't wear skimpy clothes. Bo and Luke Duke wore buttoned shirts and jeans, Uncle Jesse wore overalls, Roscoe wore sheriff blue, and Boss Hogg wore his pristine white suits. And, of course, everyone wore cowboy hats and boots. If you have a female friend willing to join your group as Daisy, this is an excellent option.
    3.    Perhaps your "group" just has two people. If so, that's no problem! Everyone recognizes the two detectives from Miami Vice. With unbuttoned blazers, light colored slacks, and loafers without socks, putting this ensemble together will be a breeze. Throw in a pastel t-shirt and sunglasses for good measure, and it will be perfect.
    Whatever you choose to do, we have any extras that you will need - even Mr. T's Mohawk! Check out our inventory online today and see what other ideas come to mind.

  • Ladies' Choice: Group Costumes with 80s Fashions

    Group Costumes with 80s Fashion
    When you and your friends go to a party dressed up as a group, it can turn ordinary 80s fashions into an extraordinary costume. Some of the best TV shows from this decade sported a cast of women that didn't necessarily dress over-the-top, but were each unique enough to be recognized in a group. Here are a few favorite women ensembles from this era of television:
    Who doesn't love The Golden Girls? Rose was air-headed, Dorothy was stern, Sophia was a smart aleck, and Blanche never met a man she didn't like. Although Dorothy was distinctive for her long tops and loose slacks (she never wore a skirt), most of the others often wore dresses, blouses, and jackets that can be found in sizable inventory. But it is the accessories that will make this costume. You need glasses for Sophia, gaudy jewelry for Blanche, and wigs for all.
    The Facts of Life was another television show that had a primarily female cast. Middle-aged Mrs. Garrett took good care of the girls that lived in the house she managed. When not wearing their school uniforms, each girl had her own take on 80's fashion. Athletic Jo would wear sweatpants or jeans and a t-shirt with the sleeves rolled up; her brown hair would be pulled into a ponytail. Sweet Tootie might wear short pigtails and a pleated school skirt with a blouse and sweater vest. Insecure Natalie often dressed the same, but she wore her hair down and clipped it out of her face with two barrettes. Wealthy Blair wore blouses and long skirts with heeled boots, and had long, strawberry blond hair that cascaded over her shoulders in wavy curls.
    Probably one of the most well-known (and funniest) casts of women in the eighties were the Designing Women. Although most of these women wore standard business attire of the decade, which can still be easily found today, their hair and attitudes set them apart. Mary Jo Shively was a single mother with short, curly red hair. She and Charlene, who filled the role of the naive blond, both work for Julia Sugarbaker, along with Julia's sister Suzanne (a former beauty pageant winner). Although all of these women were southern to the core and all but Charlene were fairly outspoken, Julia’s legendary wit and charm had a reputation for putting idiots into their place. This is the perfect ensemble costume for a group of ladies that really want to act their part.
    So what are you waiting for? With a few great outfits and some of our wigs and accessories, you will make the perfect splash at your party with one of these ideas.

  • How to Wow in 80's Outfits

    How to Wow in 80's Outfits

    When you are dressing up for any sort of costumed event, you want to look your best. Here are a few tips to help you "wow" in your 80s Outfits:

    1.    Play up to your best features. Are you a woman with amazing legs? Dress up as a pop star in a miniskirt, or an aerobics instructor in leggings and leotard. Are you a man with a muscled chest or arms? Perhaps a shirtless rocker or Rocky Balboa in sleeveless sweats would suit your style. If your best feature is your eyes, choose an ensemble that will let you have some fun with makeup.

    2.    Pick the right colors. Not everyone looks good in the neon colors that were popular in some circles during the eighties. If you are one of the lucky few that can rock the bright shades, then select a costume that will let you do it. If you aren't, then stick with the denims and leather. Not all 80's costumes for women glowed in the dark.

    3.    Pick the styles that work for you. It takes a special someone to be able to pull off a good Michael Jackson or Madonna. Don't just go with what you think will be the most recognizable. Find an ensemble that fits your personality and body type. You will enjoy your event much more if you are comfortable in your own skin - even when pretending to be someone else.

    4.    Get into character. The best costumes are those that seem authentic, and how you behave is part of that package. Are you dressing as a surfer? Call everyone "dude" and use words like "gnarly" and "woah". Using the word "like" 5 times in every sentence and constantly flipping your hair can go a long way to transforming you into a valley girl. And if you are going as Michael Jackson, you'd better be prepared to moonwalk.

    At FunWirks, we understand you want to look your best. Check out our wide array of clothing, accessories, and wigs that can help you put together the right look for your special event.

  • 80's Outfits: The Hair Says it All

    Everyone who chooses to dress up in 80's outfits for a costume party should give special thought and attention to what they are going to do with their hair. More than in almost any other decade, hairstyles during this time period were distinctive. Although some styles were specific for men or women, there were also some that crossed gender barriers and were worn by everyone. What were some of these popular and iconic styles?

    Although the hair crimper was invented in 1972, it didn't become widely used until about a decade later. Sported primarily by young women and teenage girls, this hair is easily recognizable as an eighties style. During this time, youth from both genders often had long tresses with shorter layers at the top, which made crimped hair stand tall and proud, assuming the wearer used enough Aqua Net hairspray.

    Another style frequently worn with 80's outfits is what is often referred to as "rocker hair". Men and women rock stars would "tease" their hair with a comb and hair spray, often getting the shorter top layers it to stand straight up on end and leaving the longer layers underneath hanging down. Wearers would often have locks that were tinted black or bleached blond. Sometimes colored streaks would be dyed into them as well.

    Mullets are yet another distinctive hairdo of this decade. The tresses were cut short on the front and sides of the head, but left to grow long on the back of the head. This fashion is often affectionately described as "business in the front, party in the back." Although some women wore mullets, they are considered to be more of a male hairstyle.

    Because many hair trends in the eighties are so different from today's fashions, most people have to purchase a wig in order to make this look part of their ensemble. Check out our website today to see the variety of colors, cuts, curls, and shapes we have available at FunWirks. Our affordable prices make this accessory one of the best investments you can make for costume fun for years to come!

  • 3 Ways for Men to Accessorize 80's Outfits

    When you imagine 80's outfits for men, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Some of the most popular male styles from this decade are reminiscent of Michael Jackson, Don Johnson, Rocky Balboa, Tom Cruise, or one of the many "hair band" rockers. Although these ensembles are definitely diverse, they each have one thing in common: the accessories are vital.

    Generally we think of an "accessory" as an item for women, but in reality it includes everything from shoes to sunglasses. Here are three items that men should consider when putting together their costume:

    1. Sunglasses were a hot commodity in this decade. Most males wore shades that were either all black or had reflective lenses. Some personalities, like Tom Cruises' characters in Top Gun and Risky Business, cannot be adequately portrayed without this item. For other 80's outfits, it's an extra that simply makes the overall look more recognizable.

    2. Since most people today aren't sporting head-banger hair or mullets, a wig is another accessory that can go a long way to making your costume look more authentic. Even preppy guys that just wore their hair feathered had longer locks than most men today. A decent wig can go a long way to creating an authentic eighties style.

    3. During this decade, makeup wasn't just for women. Some pop stars, like Boy George, wore quite a bit of lipstick, eye shadow, and eyebrow pencil. Other musicians, like Bret Michaels from Poison, sported black eyeliner as part of their look. Cosmetics can also be used to achieve other aspects of a costume, such as George Michael's five o'clock shadow.

    Accessories go a long way towards making almost any iconic 80s fashion look believable. Browse through the FunWirks website to see the many extras we have available that can take your eighties styles to a whole new level.
