Staff Pick of the Week: Viking Warrior

Viking Warrior Costume

It’s time for another staff pick of the week from Amy at our Fun Place Joke Shop in Dublin. This week’s pick is the incredible Viking Warrior costume. The set includes a cape, belt, helmet, leg warmers, tunic and arm warmers and is exclusively available at Fun Place Dublin now!

Amy explains why this costume has been chosen as this week’s pick by stating the following:

This week I have chosen Viking Warrior. I chose this one because I have this weird obsession with the movie How to Train your Dragon. I am aware that it is a kids movie, but hey its pretty good!! For those strange few who have not seen it, the story is about a young viking boy who does not fit in and finds a dragon, and as the title says he trains it. I love this movie and everything about it! For that reason I chose this costume as it reminds me of the movie. The costume itself is a great buy! Included is the cape, belt, helmet, leg warmers, tunic and arm warmers. Great value for your money. It is a male viking costume but I don’t think years ago the woman would have dressed much differently. It comes in large, XL and standard size. The bonus being if you get it for Halloween you will be nice and toasty!

This costume would be ideal not only for How to Train Your Dragon fans but also fans of the hit TV show “Vikings”. Check out a clip of the show below.

This costume is available exclusively at our shop at 52 King Street, Dublin.

Staff Pick of the Week – Tales of Old England High Priestess

Welcome to our first ever Staff Pick of the Week post which will be a permanent weekly feature on our blog from now on. Every week, a different member of staff will select a costume that they really like and explain why they chose it as their pick of the week. Read on to find out what has been selected this week.

This week, it was Amy who chose this week’s staff pick of the week and she selected the Tales of Old England High Priestess costume.

Amy said the following about her pick of the week,

“I have chosen Tales of Old England High Priestess Costume. I love history and the olden times of lords and ladies. It also is very similar to Melisandre in Game of Thrones. She is one of my favorite characters in the show. She is so manipulative, graceful and powerful. The costume has a lovely deep red colour and hooded cloak that I think brings out the beauty in the costume. For those reasons I have chosen it and if I had my way I would wear it on Halloween. Not many people would choose this costume because it is quite conservative and that is one reason why I chose it. I like to be different in any way i can”. 

Game of Thrones fans will definitely love this costume and it would be idea for Halloween or even a Game of Thrones themed party.
