I need to buy a costume to fit a character who is a young gay man living in the early 80s. Looking for ideas or reference images. More details inside. [more inside]
I'm attending a friend's birthday party who was born in 1986, hence the party's theme. I'm female, but I've only been able to think of a lot of male costumes that don't get me anywhere (karate kid, tom cruise in top gun, etc). The costume has to be someone/something specific from that year. Help me think of a female costume (preferably quickly since the party is .. tonight)!

80s party costume suggestions [more inside]
In a month or so I'll be going to a pretty epic 80's themed college party. I need ideas for a costume/ where to get it. I've read up on some websites with suggestions, but I figured metafilter would have better taste. I am a thin white male. I am willing to pay up to $100 but would prefer less than that. I want it to be something Ic an dance in. Any suggestions on what to wear or where to get it?
I want to throw together 2 costumes (1 guy, 1 girl) that would scream 80's new wave high schooler. I need pictures to help us not end up too emo. "New wave" means different things to different people, so please read inside. [more inside]
LastMinuteCostumeFilter: Due to poor planning / organizational skillz, I find myself in need of (and sorely lacking) a pseudo-80's costume for an upcoming barbershop chorus performance on Saturday night. I'm too fat for all my old 80s clothes; hope me! PS - I have ready access to Goodwill and Salvation Army retail stores, so ideas around getting this done inexpensively would be fabulous. TIA!
