80s costumes are so eyeroll inducing and cliché. why is it that anytime someone has to dress up like it’s the 80s, they automatically defer to aerobic gear? if i had to, i’d say people do:
1. aerobic exercise look
2. early madonna look
3. strange combo of aerobic exercise AND madonna look that never even existed IRL (madge did not wear leg warmers on the regs and if you argue this, you are not a true madge fan or most likely even know what the term “madge” means)
4. acceptable, pop culture costumes (movie characters, cartoons, etc)
5. obscure 80s shit
anyways… what irritated me so badly is because suddenly everyone who never cared about halloween/autumn finally caught up and people are posting old halloween pics for “inspo” (eyeroll), and my friend (who was a pretty, popular cheerleader) posted a pic of her and two other girls in all neon, tutus, side ponytails, a body suit, leggings and leg warmers with plastic jewelry.
like, i get it… those things existed in the 80s as a collective, but nobody walked around like that, at least not in the majority. this costume just “sums it up?”
that’s another thing…. when did all of these arseholes get so into halloween/fall vibes? i hate people on this new instagram and blame it for exploiting everything, lol. i’m not saying people DIDN’T love halloween/autumn before, but it was never a THING like it is now… but esp to normal people. people not into goth or metal or whatever alternative lifestyle…
when i was like 18/19 i started buying halloween decor and just using it for my bedroom as normal shit, bc you know, halloween 365… and now things fly off the shelves just so goons can DO IT FOR THE GRAM. like, fuck y’all. sometimes i have to wait an entire year for the next spooky season and hope stores restock specific fucking items for purchase.
i unfollowed a halloween tshirt account on IG the other day, bc the idiots that run it boasted in a post about driving around to targets to scoop up every XL jack-o-lantern bucket they could find. like, had a pic of them in the car with it filled up with them. what about everyone else that wants ONE you assholes? (lucky for me, i bought a black and white one and a trad orange back in 2015, the year they released)
