Can I wear an 80's theme halloween costume in Vegas for Halloween?

Asked by Evelyn_475 (787 points ) October 17th, 2010

I am going to Las Vegas for Halloween 2010 and I know that everyone dresses up the whole weekend there for Halloween and all the clubs have costume contests and such.

I want to wear an 80’s themed outfit (Leggings, layered colored tanks, cutoff sweatshirt, heals, leg warmers, side pony tail and crazy makeup) but I am concerned that the clubs won’t let me in because some have dress codes of “no sweatshirts” etc. (But its Halloween, right?)

I guess my question is: will I be dressed up enough to be let into clubs? I am thinking “yes” because its Halloween and technically I am going to be wearing a costume but I wanted to make sure. And if anyone has gone to Vegas for Halloween before give me some good advice as to where to go and what to expect.

Thank you!

Lol, being in Vegas and all I almost doubt that anyone would realize that you were dressed up for Halloween. I think that you can do whatever you want though. If you’re having fun then who cares!

I’ve been to Las Vegas a half a dozen times, but not for Halloween. I’d place a $100 bet that you will be welcomed into just about any club, if not all, in your costume.

I haven’t seen any dress code for any club I’ve ever been in. People wear all manner of dress and most manner of undress as well.

The beauty about Halloween you can wear anything. Go for it.

Wear whatever you want.
But your question reminds me of something that I have always been curious about.
Why do people wear an “outfit” on Halloween that is really not a costume at all?
I remember a time when I was a little younger, going to Halloween parties and, for example, some of the girls would go as “hookers” except they really were not in a costume, they simply looked like the same old girl in a miniskirt, fishnet stockings and lots and lots of make up.
What is that all about?

@josie: I think anything can be a costume. It is particular to each individual person. My typical style does not include anything pertaining to the 80’s. You would never catch me on a regular day wearing anything that would make you think, 80’s. So for me, this outfit most definitely constitutes as a “costume.” Personally, I did not want to spend a ton of money on something that I am only going to wear one time, therefore my costume is economical. There was also a small desire not to look like every other girl wearing a sluttish cop, firefighter, sports player or fairy costume. My motives were economical/ I don’t want to be a sellout with some cheap p.o.s. “every other girl has it” costume.
