80s Party Costume Ideas:
Ralphie from A Christmas Story
A Christmas Story was released in 1983 and became an
instant holiday classic. Watching the sentimental family comedy
about Ralphie, who oh-so-desperately wanted a Red Ryder BB gun
from Santa, is still an important part of many of our holiday
traditions. We love Flick, who froze his tongue to a pole, and
Randy, in his ridiculously puffy snowsuit, but Ralphie is
totally the coolest.
Because Ralphie had several iconic
outfits, you’ve got a few options if you want to conjure him up. For ALL
the Ralphie looks, you need a pair of round tortoiseshell glasses. I
suggest buying a cheap pair of
reading glasses and popping out the lenses. You’ll also need to
pomade your hair with a
wet-look product, give it a side part, and comb it neatly.
