The 80’s were the era when Rock and Roll became legendary. Everyone wanted to be a rock star, it was more than just the money, or the fame, it was even more than a lifestyle- it was a state of being. All the great bands were born in the 80’s: Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Poison, Reo Speedwagon, Twisted Sister, Ozzy Osborne and the list goes on. Long hair matching that of Axl Rose, curly hair like Slash, cowboy hats, fur coats and big belt buckles were standard among rock gods. If you wanted to be a rock star you needed to dress the part. Girls were equally splendid with mini denim skirts, leggings, bright colors and sky-high hairdos.
If you think the 80’s are dead, think again- the era of Rock & Roll is coming alive in the big screen this winter with “Rock of Ages”. The movie is a comic recreation of the 80’s in its entire splendor, and as with the 80’s, in this movie it is all about the music and the fashion. Iconic movie stars like Russell Brand and Tom Cruise join the cast with characters that represent all that the 80s were, crazy, loud, sinful, sexy and above all fashionable.
The release of this movie is a fantastic excuse to recreate the 80’s at your own party, or what about sporting your favorite 80's costumes to the premier? The Rock of Ages costumes are so varied it will be hard to choose: dress like the preppy Patricia Whitmore, sport the bandana, big sunglasses and attitude of Stacee Jaxx or make it daring- dress as a scantly dressed groupie with hair-nets and miniskirts. If you need help deciding what an adult 80's costume should look like, the answer is too easy! To achieve the perfect 80s look arm yourself with tons of hairspray and do not be afraid of going big! The 80’s are all about excess. Pile on makeup and bracelets, the key is to accessorize with lots of splashes of color, no color is too funky in the 80’s.
