What better 80s party or Halloween costume than the lovable underdog of the classic 80s film, Better Off Dead? Whether Lane was being chased by the homicidal paperboy (“I want my Two dollars!”), trying to ski the k-12, romancing the French exchange student across the street, or drag racing the Japanese Cosell-wannabe brothers, he always had a style about him that was endearing. You too can be Lane Meyer and bring this great 80s character back to life. Lookin’ good – looking real good.
