Help dress me! (For a themed party).

I've been invited to a themed party with the following costume rules: Invasion, conquest, exploration, assimilation, sovereignty, or superheroes who save the world! and I have no idea what to wear. Any ideas would be awesome. It's tomorrow night, so I don't have much time to get stuff, and something warm would be preferable (it's damn cold right now).

I'm glad I'm not from the 80's, but for one night I want to look like I am.

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?
