|Posing in my '80s headgear with my silly younger
brother at his McDonald's birthday party
I've covered wonderful '80s fashions including plastic charm bracelets, gummy bracelets, parachute pants and more. Now here's one wacky fashion accessory I'm hoping some other 1980s kids remember. Back in like 1981/1982, I loved what I called my "antennas" -- I wouldn't leave home without them. I was a weird kid, I know. These antennas were basically a plastic headband with springs attached to glittery hearts, stars and other strange objects.

I loved my 1980's headgear which were professionally referred to as "Deely Boppers" and "Head Boppers." I wore these wacky antennas to the mall, babysitting, birthday parties, Friendly's and even to Disneyland in California. My folks were so cool, they never questioned my outlandish styles even at the tender age of 10.
If you were an '80s kid, did you own a pair of these wacky antennas?
