I love the 80s. Especially cartoon characters. That’s why for basically every Halloween dating back to when I was a kid, my go-to costumes have been the same: She-ra, Jem and Rainbow Brite.

In the past three years, I’ve rocked them all. But as I get older and the bar-goers get younger, I’ve gotten a lot of confused looks.

Am I that old?

Now Rainbow Brite has made somewhat of a comeback in recent years, so most of the time people know that costume. But Jem? She-ra? Nope. Nothing. Not even after showing pictures. Not even saying, “You know? He-man’s twin sister!”


What’s scarier than the living dead on Halloween is showing your true age in costume. This year, I’m going as Hannah Montana. She’s still cool, right?
