NEW STEEMIT CONTEST - I love 80s

in contest •  8 months ago

Some of us grew up in 80s and it was the decade of bizarre items and fashion.
These days I feel a little bit nostalgic about that time, maybe because I entered in middle age, maybe just because I really loved that time.

Sequence 04.png

While thinking of 80s I came to the idea of making a trial contest on Steemit, very simple one, a contest that everyone can join, participate and have fun at the same time.

The RULES are simple:

  • You have to resteem this post.
  • share a photo of one item or anything you think that best describes 80s, and a short description.
  • There is a limit of 3 entries per account
  • The only valid entries are those which are added in the comment section.
  • This is going to be a weekly contest from Wednesday to Wednesday

It can be everything from gadgets, toys, wardrobe, haircuts, tv show, tv series, commercial, youtube clip of favorite song…
If you get inspired by this contest you can make your own post and share a link under comments section or you can just drop your picture and write a comment.

Here are few examples with short text;

  1. Everybody wear them and look ridiculous...

  2. Making a mix of songs for somebody was the greatest gift you can give to girl or friend...

  3. Rubik's cube - everybody had one and almost nobody could solve :)...

REWARD

5 SBD from me + half of SBD what post makes in 7 days.

  • There is only one winner, hopefully, the contest will soon get some sponsors and richer reward pool for second, third place and mentions.

The criteria


Your entry can be funny, personal, nostalgic or anything you think that can be interesting to share.
Every week will be the new - guest judge, which will choose the winner.
The first judge of the contest will be General of the memearmy @fibra59 well know for his #memechallenge and #photobombchallenge

A lot of response indeed Oleg. Well done.

#1. Loading a game on Commodore 64

·

You are getting 100% for Commodore 64 LoL...

·
·

Thanks, the struggle was real!

Ohhh this is easy as I graduated in 1984!! So what better then a pic of me my senior year with my Flash Dance sweatshirt and funky punky haircut!! Lol. This is real man!!!!Screenshot_20180209-153608.png

I call this pic "weird science"!! Ha!! Get it?? 1st entry

·

I get it!! 😂😂 You totally look like her in this pic! ❤

·
·

Wow now that's a compliment!! I never even thought of that: me looking like her!! Lol

·

Great Entry:) Thank you.

·
·

You can't have any 80s contest and not have John Hughes films mentioned. The famed Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and 16 Candles. My favorite is the lesser known Some Kinda Wonderful! I loved this story!! A must see! I even had the soundtrack on tape! 3rd entry

Costumes.jpeg

Here is a picture I found (1985?) of my brother and myself wearing our plastic halloween costumes. You couldn't see, you couldn't breath, and they hurt your face. There were no rules for halloween in the 80's. It was dangerous and it was AWESOME! I'm Yoda and I-Rock-My-Adidas!

·

Hahaha, great one :) Thank you for your entry.

·

I have very distinct memories of wearing one similar around 1988 of a Transformer! Love it

I'm going to go with my records (I'm selling these, btw, if anyone wants a list of what I have left, lol), and my roller skates.

Many hours spent dancing to "Ghostbusters" and "Walk Like an Egyptian" at the roller rink. 😁

·

I was scrolling fast and saw your pics and backed up like, who's awesome pics are these? And it's phe! Hi hi! 😂❤❤

·
·

Hi hi! 😄💙

·

I had tennis shoe skates!!!!

Great entry ;) Thank you.

·

Grear entry, Thank you.

Got to love the good old 80's rock, like Metallica, most the good albums came from back in the 80's!

·

Great entry :) Remeber Jeans with Metalica :)

·
·

Yes I do, or the black leather jackets, and long hair which my mom refused to let me have! Well, now I got the long hair, but need to buy a new leather jacket!

·
·
·

If the leather jackets are the best to support

Let me give it a try ;)
No # 1 - “Fudbalerka hair style”. Everybody had this awfulness on their heads backdays, even us girls :) Definitely most popular hair-style of the 80’s ;)

I see a lot of interesting photos submitted, I wonder how the judge/s are going to choose the winner. Maybe it will be easier for the participants and judges if you break it into categories like : day one it will be hairstyle, day two: gadgets, three: tv show and so on. Just my suggestion.

·

Thank you for your suggestion, this is first one and trial one I didn't know how will people react. The response is great and I was thinking from the next week to make it thematic.
I can give you a hint:)
Next week is going to be: I love80,s - Movies, tv shows, and tv series :)

·
·

I agree @olegw the response is great and thanks for considering the suggestion. Cheers.

·

Good entry:) Thank you for participation.

·

Wow, I had two of those.
I had a game called "Who dares wins 2"

No #2 Madonna. The queen. When it comes to visual - she was the true eighties girl, and we all danced to her 80’s hits - Papa Don’t Preach, Into the Groove, Like a Prayer, Like a Virgin...

·
·
·

Hated Madonna, from the release of Holiday til now she has done nothing to change that.

No #3 - Čunga lunga bubble gum. This will only Croatians understand, ‘cause it is kind of local thing 🤪 Ono kad te mama posalje u ducan, a teta nema sitnog da ti vrati pa ti da cunga-lungu :D. Najbolja i najgora zvaka svih vremena, okus djetinjstva!

Upvoted, resteemed, and following now!!!

So, I was born in 1984, and most of the 80's that I remember are based around toys. I definitely relate to being a 90's kid much more. Another competition?!

  1. Rainbow Brite
    RB.jpg

I have fond memories of this doll and all of her friends!

  1. Teddy Ruxpin

Hello friends thanks to this contest sponsored by @ olegw, I love 80s, guess what I found my first camera Kodak star 275, beautiful are the memories that this camera left me, how many photos with my loved ones present and absent.Many of those memories.

Motorola_DynaTAC_8000X_1000_0001.jpg

For me no doubt the 80s was marked by a series of technological advances, but from my point of view the biggest advance was the appearance of the first cell phone, manufactured by the company Motorola, the first phone manufactured was launched in 1983 where Motorola showed the DynaTAC 8000x, this device weighed approximately 800 grams and was designed by Engineer Martin Cooper

Great entry, thank you.

Kad pomislim na 80-e, prvo mi padne napamet odlicna muzicka scena i novi talas, pa evo jednog teksta koji najbolje opisuje taj duh 80-ih u Beogradu.

Dynasty - first soap opera :)
dinastija.jpg

One of the things that created trends in the 80s were toys inspired by big TV series or movies. Quality toys made to last through the years. He-man, G.I. Joe, the ninja turtles, star Wars. Today these toys are collected and worth a fortune.
