Oh wow, lol! Now THIS should be fun! :laugh:

Do I try for some Margaret Thatcher or miner's strike theme? :ph34r:

Please don't let me actually end up doing something like that, lol.

Am I intentionally trying to sabotage myself? Do I have some #lifegoals thing of "Succeeding in getting zero votes in The Runway contest!" :arrowhead:

Oh my gosh, this is the best theme ever. I usually only enter once in a while, and definitely not two weeks in a row, but I can't resist this theme! I may even have to make a trip over to the Backstage thread if I can't narrow down my ideas.

Yeah, I'm on the opposite end.  Not only does it not make me want to rush out and start customizing, but I wouldn't even know where to start since I wasn't alive in the 80s.  I could figure out 70s, those are pretty well known for their horrible fashion choices (:P), but I think the 80s was mostly just huge glasses?  Why does neo even have a selection of 80s fashion?

I was technically alive in the 80s, but I can't remember much of those 7 months. :P
Just google 80s fashion though; it's not just huge glasses. (Huge hair, too! Think Bon Jovi. Or other 80s "hair bands".)
Neon. Spandex. Leg warmers. So much to love. :wub_anim:

I'm kind of amazed that you somehow managed to avoid running into 80s fashion anywhere though! I'm much more familiar with 80s fashion than I am with 70s fashion. (The 60s and the 70s always kind of blend in together for me.)

Anyway, I love this theme! :biggrin:

Okay, my turn to be confused. What exactly is school spirit week (do you... cheer on your school?), and how does "wacky tack day" fit into that? XD

(I do feel that 'wacky tacky' is an accurate description for 80s fashion though. :D)

School spirit week was a week of theme days, one of which was usually school colors, that I think might have happened around homecoming, at least in HS.  Usually a pajama day where you got to wear PJs to school, etc.  Some classes might give extra credit for participating.  Basically just a fun activity to get people to like the school.  One day I remember was Wacky Tacky day, where you'd wear glaring and mismatched clothes.  I used to wear mismatched long patterned socks and shorts over pants and things.

Couldn't agree more xD

Madonna's a LOT to blame for 80s fashion, she rocked the look though, there's no denying that!

That sounds kinda fun. :)

(And completely different from what school's like in Holland - I'm pretty sure none of the schools I attended had anything like 'school colors' in the first place.)

I got my entry in, and Deb hasn't kicked me out of the contest yet, so I think I'm safe. :ph34r:

*checks inbox*

Oh wait, she's not read it yet, so I'd best not be counting my chickens . . .
