How to make a Punky Brewster costume
The 80s are cool again! And so are obscure characters from sitcoms from the decade! Still obscure enough to be cool and recognizable enough to make a great costume, you can put together a simple and fun Punky Brewster costume for your next 80s-themed party! Dress up as the colorful abandoned kid
##Things You’ll Need##
* Blue sweatshirt
* Bright colored longsleeve t-shirt to wear under sweatshirt
* White t-shirt
* Colored denim vest
* Assorted pins and patches
* Brightly colored sneakers with mismatched laces
* Ponytail holders
* OPTIONAL: Stuffed Golden Retriever toy dog
##Dressing up as Punky Brewster##
Step 1: The first thing you’ll want to do is layer your clothing. Wear a bright colored long-sleeved t-shirt underneath a bright blue sweatshirt. Push up the sleeves of your sweatshirt and roll the long-sleeved t-shirt over it so that there is a contrasting cuff.
Step 2: Put on a white t-shirt over your two shirts and roll up the sleeves on the white shirt so that a much shorter layer exists.
Step 3: Put on your denim vest over the shirt. You can wear a plain blue denim one or opt for a brightly colored vest. Decorate it with all sorts of pins and patches, 80s style!
Step 4: Put on a pair of jeans and layer over them a pair of bright socks and striped legwarmers.
Step 5: Put on a pair of colorful Converse sneakers — or any other brilliantly hued shoe with mis-matched laces.
Step 6: The final touch is to pull your hair into two side ponytails to get this look! Grab a stuffed toy dog to pose as Brandon, Punky’s beloved pet Golden Retriever!
