80s Party Costume Ideas: Breakdancer

Grab your boombox, throw on your kicks, adjust your wristbands and layout your cardboard. It’s time to get your break on.

Fashion is as much a part of a breaker’s identity as are their moves. The key is to keep it “fresh,” functional, and uniform. You’ll need:

•  Clothes (fitted is best):

- Nylon track suits or
- Jeans with hooded sweatshirt (bubble vest optional)

•  Shoes (shown with pics below):

- Adidas shell toes with fat laces
- Classic Pumas track shoes w/ FAT laces
- Classic Converse (Chuck Taylors)


•  Hat:

- Winter hat: aka beenie or skully
- Kangol (like a beret - only with nylon track suit)

•  Accessories:

- Wrist bands / head (sweat) bands
- Ski goggles
- Fingerless leather gloves
- White gloves (like a mime users - poppers used these)

•  Props:

- Boombox blasting some sick beats
- Oversized piece of cardboard
- Bring a friend or two that matches your look and now you have not
  only a great look, but a real crew.
