'80s Halloween costume ideas? We got you covered from Slimer to Cousin Eddy



Halloween really is the ultimate '80s holiday. On no other day -- except maybe for the rare '80s pub crawl or Cyndi Lauper concert -- can you dress up exactly like you did 30 years ago and be called a creative genius. If like me, you tossed all your '80s fashions long ago, is here to help with some amazing '80s Halloween costumes.

My favorite for this year: Cousin Eddy from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Subtle but smart. If you want to be a little more obvious, then Slimer from Ghostbusters is your best bet. Check out the gallery above for more ideas and then head to for their full selection of Halloween costumes. Time's running out so order soon! (Or you can always pull off the obligatory Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything.)
