Staff Pick of the Week: I Will Rock You Jumpsuit

It’s Staff Pick of the Week time again and we have gone back to the 80’s to find inspiration for this week’s chosen costume. The costume is inspired by the iconic Freddy Mercury who rose to fame when he was the frontman of the legendary rock band Queen. Read why Jenny chose this as the costume of the week:

We will rock you

“The staff pick for this week is the I Will Rock You jumpsuit and jacket. I chose this costume because a friend of mine recently acquired an incredible vinyl figure of Freddie Mercury in his iconic yellow buckled jacket, complete with posable arms for that brilliant power stance we all know and love. This costume would be great to wear out on a karaoke night, to help you channel your inner rockstar”.

It’s Monday again, which means that it is time for another Staff Pick of the Week. This week we have opted for a costume that is out of this world – The Spaceman Jumpsuit. Read below why Amy chose this as this week’s Staff Pick of the Week.

The Staff Pick of the week is Spaceman Jumpsuit. I picked this costume because recently I went to see The Martian. I thought it was a brilliant movie, but to be honest im not the biggest Matt Damon fan. It took a lot of persuading to get me to see a movie with him in it. I have to admit he done a pretty good job. Included in the costume is a jumpsuit with hood, gloves and bootcovers. Its amazing value for money. Any fan off space and NASA would be delighted with this creative costume.

Sizes available are medium and large in mens sizes.

 

 

Staff Pick of the Week: The Mad Hatter

We have chosen a well-loved character from the classic story of Alice in Wonderland for this week’s Staff Pick of the Week. Read on to see why Amy chose the female mad hatter costume for this week.

Female Mad Hatter

This week the costume I have picked is the female Mad Hatter Costume. It comes with the dress, jacket, thigh highs, glovelettes, hat and bowtie chocker. I chose this costume because the Mad Hatter is a great memory from my childhood. I remember first seeing the goofy mad hatter in Disneys Alice in Wonderland many moons ago. His scene was probably my favorite in the entire movie. Of course we cant forget the remake Tim Burton created that included Johnny Depp. I really liked his portrayal of The Mad Hatter. I think he really tapped into the essence madness with a touch of class. I might be biased praising Johnny Depp but cant we all agree he is just amazing?

I think any girl would love this costume its full of colour, fun and just a hint of madness!

Staff Pick of the Week: Champagne Flapper Dress

It’s Monday again which means that it is time for this week’s Staff Pick of the Week. We have rolled it back to the 1920’s for this costume as this week’s selection is the “Champagne Flapper Dress”. Read below why Katie chose this costume as the Staff Pick of the Week.

Flapper Dress

“This week’s chosen costume is the champagne flapper dress which captures the heart and soul of the 1920s era. Since the 2013 movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby, directed by the avant garde and brilliant Baz Luhrman, the craze for 1920s themed parties, weddings etc.. has been all the rage. This costume would be the perfect outfit for any Gatsby themed event; hardly looking like a typical costume with its beautiful sequined detailing and authentic fringe that would pass for any traditional flapper. Accompanied by any one of our range of headpieces, cigarette holders, feather boas or dazzling pearls that are carried in store and always in full stock due to their immense popularity, pulling off a modern Daisy Buchanan would be effortless, as well as stunning. Now all you need is a Leo DiCaprio to be your Jay Gatsby”. 

DIY: Make Your own John Lennon Costume

The Beatles Festival takes place in Dublin this weekend and it is bound to bring plenty of fun and 60’s style nostalgia to the city. If you and some friends are attending the festival and are planning on dressing up in 60’s style clothing then this is the perfect blog post for you. Read on to find out how to transform into John Lennon for the weekend.

Young John Lennon 

To become a young John Lennon you will need a smart suit, preferably with a black pin striped suit like the one above. Complete the suit with a simple and skinny black tie. Make sure the suit and tie is well fitted and not too baggy so it will fit in with the classic 60’s fashion trends. Dressy black shoes will then complete the clothing. You will also need to be clean shaven while a proper 60’s style male brown wig will really complete the look. We have the best range of wigs in Dublin so call into Fun Place to find the perfect wig.

Older John Lennon

John Lennon became more unique and edgy with his style once the Beatles were well established and when he was a solo artist. The Imagine singer grew a beard, began to wear long and baggy clothes, grew his hair long and wore an iconic pair of glasses. To become the John Lennon from this era you will need white trousers, long white suit jacket, white polo-neck or shirt, brown belt and white shoes. To really complete this look you will need the iconic John Lennon glasses and a long brown messy wig and beard. Here at Fun Place Dublin we have the best range of accessories such as wigs and glasses so we are your number one option in the capital.

1970’s John Lennon

Lennon changed his look again in the 1970’s as he got rid of the beard and shortened his hair but he kept the iconic glasses. The singer’s style became a lot more casual as he was often spotted in denim jackets or army style jackets and jeans. To achieve this look you will need flared jeans, black/brown shoes, denim jacket with a t-shirt underneath. You will then need a 70’s style male brown short wig and the iconic John Lennon glasses which can all be purchases at Fun Place.
