The year was 1983 and these are not costumes.

Hilarious, but definitely staged. There is no way they would wear polo shirts in 1983 without the collars popped. :-p
I call shenanigans. The letter graphics themselves are mid-90s at oldest.
Hmmmm i totally do not believe this is 1983. The man’s sandals were not produced in 1983. good try though
Looks like a modern cooler also. I doubt all the fine details would be put in the outside cooler casing on something back in the early 80s. Staged.
I went to a Modern Orthodox Jewish day camp in the early ’80′s. No one wore shorts that long in 1983, not even my grandmother.
this is staged.. this was the invitation for their son’s 1st b-day… i know,,, i was there.
As others have mentioned, his athletic slides were not around in 1983. Also, her style of earrings were not popular until later in the 80′s. Lastly, she has a small tattoo on the side of her left foot – nobody did that in 1983.
Best. Picture. Ever!
staged or not, this is awesome!
and yes, paul, i do believe that is a calculator watch.
amazing…socks with sandles, shark going for ass, missing left arm, the hair. fanny pack, i think that’s even a calculator watch…so much for the eyes
Oh. My.Gosh. At 1st I thought that this picture was one of those flat boards w/ a cut out area for the head where you stick your head through & it looks like you are wearing something silly that was painted on. (the heads of the subjects seem a bit big; probably due to the hair style, etc).
I agree– I totally don’t believe this wasn’t staged. Her hair and hoops do not jibe with 1983.
He wore his best tube socks!
I am thinking this is staged! Fanny packs were big in the late ’80′s early ’90′s and I don’t recall there being any athletic slider flip flops for men in the early 80′s
I agree. Also, doing a Google search will yield that exact, inflatable palm tree. IF they were around in 1983, I would highly doubt they would remain unchanged for 30 years. In 1983, the Jaws fad had also all but died off. (Jaws came out in 1975 and in 1983 was Jaws 3D, which was a bomb).
Jaws fad “all but died off” in 1983?? It was huge, all throughout the 80′s.
dude bill was being ironic, his comment wasn’t meant to be taken literally.
WOW This is the best picture in the history of pictures…..EVER
