Eighties movies are full of characters that make awesome Halloween costumes—from huge hair to sexy sirens to slasher-flick villains, they have it all. If you’re still undecided on what to be this year, check out this list of amazing costumes from the decade of excess.

Madison from “Splash”

When “Splash” premiered in 1984, everyone wished they had fins instead of legs. To achieve the look and differentiate yourself from the other much-copied mermaid, Ariel, you need blonde, crimped hair. If you’re crafty, sew yourself a mermaid fin. If not, order one of those mermaid fin blankets from Amazon.


The Heathers and Veronica from “Heathers”

The original “Mean Girls,” “Heathers” was every high school girl’s favorite movie in the 80s. To pull off the preppy vibe, make sure you add shoulder pads to your skirt suit. A scrunchie, teased hair and a croquet mallet will complete the look. It’ll be “so very.”


Jason Vorhees from “Friday the 13th”

This one’s a classic and oh-so-easy. Don a hockey mask and some old tattered clothes, and voila, you’ll spook everyone you see. Don’t forget to wield a plastic sword to really send your friends screaming.


Samantha from “Sixteen Candles”

Molly Ringwald was the “it” girl in the 80s. Pull off one of her most iconic roles by snagging a poofy bridesmaid’s dress at the thrift store. Cropped red hair optional. You’ll be so cute, you’re sure to snag your very own Jake Ryan.


Baby from “Dirty Dancing”

This 80s classic actually takes place in the 60s. Cutoffs, white Keds and a white button-down are all you need to channel Frances Houseman, aka Baby. Get your man to throw on a leather jacket a la Johnny, and make it a couple’s costume.


The Grady Twins from “The Shining”

Grab your bestie, matching blue dresses, knee-high socks and fake blood, and you have the totally creepy twins from “The Shining.” Can you say red rum?


Kim “Prom Night”

Jamie Lee Curtis was the “scream queen” of the 80s. Channel your inner prom queen and dust off that prom dress, add a sparkly tiara, and don’t forget the (fake) axe.


Freddy Krueger from “A Nightmare on Elm Street”

Grab a Freddy mask from a pop-up Halloween shop, and add a striped sweater and a top hat. Don’t forget the knives for fingers, and you’re sure to be the stuff of nightmares.


Jessica Rabbit from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”

She may be animated, but Jessica Rabbit was a major vixen of the ’80s. Slip on a slinky red dress, heels and purple elbow-length gloves to bring out the va-va-voom.


Lisa from “Weird Science”

If you want to go sexy this Halloween, look no further. The costume is super simple, too. All you need is a cut-off top and a pair of undies. Tease your hair as high as it will go to complete the look.
