Top Gun Aviator Overalls - Jumpsuit

Top Gun jumpsuit costume for men
Top Gun Official Costume
No discussion about 80s movies would be complete without mentioning the 1986 action movie Top Gun. The main stars were, of course, Tom Cruise (Maverick) and Kelly McGillis (Charlie). If you're looking for an 80s themed costume idea then a Top Gun costume would make a very decent choice.

I'm going to start with the most popular and official choice which is shown above. This is a complete fancy dress outfit which includes the overalls with sewn-on badges and the aviator shades. Simply wear a white T-shirt underneath to complete your look.

However, you can create a much more cost-effective costume by purchasing some low-cost overalls and a pack of sew-on/iron-on badges.
