Come In Orson

“My 80’s style was on point in this school photo. Garfield pin on my Mork from Ork suspenders and pants, over my popped collar, on top of a unicorn print turtleneck. Everything above the neck is a bonus.”

Clipped

“I found this picture recently when I was cleaning out some old photo boxes. I think I was in 3rd or 4th grade, which would make it the early 1980s. My parents, obviously having no idea what roach clips were used for, not only let me buy it, but let me go to school with it pinned to my collar on picture day.”

Major Laser

“This was my 9th grade school photo, the last school photo I ever took. It still hangs in some relative’s houses 31 years later. What can I say, it was the late 80’s on Long Island and hair metal reigned supreme. I am still proud of the height I got on my hair back then.”
