Staff Pick of the Week: The Dark Barbarian

It’s Monday again which means that it is time to choose another Staff Pick of the Week. This week’s chosen costume is the Dark Barbarian. The Dark Barbarian Costume is a black top and cape that is a great lookalike of the Nights Watch from the hit TV show Game of Thrones. We also have John Snow wigs and swords in the shop for all you fans!




Staff Pick of the Week: Harley Quinn

It’s Monday, which means that is time for another Staff Pick of the Week. Last week, we saw the release of the first official trailer of the highly anticipated movie Suicide Squad. The trailer finally showed us a glimpse of what we can expect from the film when it is released in August. We have chosen the Harley Quinn costume because she is going to be one of the key characters in the new superhero/supervillian action movie. This evil and quirky character will be portrayed by the brilliant Margot Robbie. 


Our Harley Quinn costume is based more on the classic Harley Quinn look from the comic books and cartoons rather than the one from the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. This costume comes with a jumpsuit with attached boot tops, collar, headpiece, eyemask and gloves. This costume is unique and we are one of the only shops in Ireland to have it in stock. Call into Fun Place today to get your own Harley Quinn costume.

The movie is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year and is expected to be help the genre of superheroes and comic books grow even more popular.

Staff Pick of the Week: Princess Leia

Star Wars: The Force Awakens smashed box office records around the world as it’s total gross so far is over $1.5 billion. It was released last month but is still the most talked about movie in the world as no other recent release can even compete the blockbuster. In tribute to the success of the new Star Wars movie, we have selected the Princess Leia costume as our pick of the week.



Princess Leia is a key character in from episode IV onwards as she begins her Star Wars journey as a member of royalty who is kidnapped by the evil Empire. Leia is then rescued by Han Solo, Chewbacca & Luke Skywalker and then goes on to become a key character who helps the rebels defeat Jabba the Hut & the Empire.

Leia is a general in Episode VII: The Force Awakens and is keen to find out where her brother Luke has disappeared to. This costume has everything you need to become the iconic Star Wars character and we also have the wig to complete the costume.

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”.

Staff Pick of the Week: Spaceman Jumpsuit


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.
