Warm Bodies ‘R’
Warm Bodies unveils the tale of a post apocalyptic romance between ‘R’ a zombie and Julie, a human. read more…
The fact that Julie, played by Teresa Palmer, is attracted to “R” is not as strange as it may first seem. ‘R’ does have the whole “rescuing the damsel in distress” scenario working in his favour, not to mention that “R” and Julie are a parody of Romeo and Juliet, which was always going to be a clincher. But when you’ve just been rescued from zombies, your last boyfriend has been eaten and your new suitor looks like Nicholas Hoult, a trip in first class, reassurance that you won’t be eaten and background strains of “Patience” by Guns n Roses are definitely going to help see him in a new light; although it had best be a dim one.
Sartorial elegance is not “R”‘s strong point. I mean, the fancy watch he steals from Perry isn’t going to mask the blood stains and rotting flesh aroma, but when Julie and her friend Nora give “R” a makeover to make him presentable to the humans, even Nora has to agree he looks “kinda hot”.
If you want to cosplay as R at a party, comic convention, or just to exercise your human rights to go “zombie”, we have put together a brilliant outfit containing all the essentials of R’s costume. Transform into the living dead Romeo himself as you slip into his iconic red hoodie, beige t-shirt, blue jeans and black wig, all with a heavy side order of distressing stains using makeup, fake blood and anything else you care to smear down the front!
Warm Bodies ‘R’ Red Hoodie
The most striking aspect of the clothes R wears, is that iconic red hoodie. We have a great burgundy hoodie that closely resembles that worn by Nicholas Hoult in the movie, minus of course the obligatory blood, guts and staining, that you can enjoy adding yourself! This beautiful burgundy hoodie is manufactured with 50% cotton and 50% polyester. It is machine washable and has a zipped fastenining to the front with adjustable drawstrings on the hood and split kangaroo pockets.
Warm Bodies ‘R’ Beige T-shirt
Underneath R’s red hoodie we can see a beige t-shirt, though yet again this appears distressed and is stained with various liquids, the source of which one can only imagine. This shirt is sold at a real bargain price by a reputable company with a reputation for being a socially responsible manufacturer and marketer of leading everyday basic apparel. This shirt is available in a wide variety of colors but we recommend the ‘sand’ as it bears the closest resemblance to that worn by ‘R’.
Warm Bodies ‘R’ Jeans
The jeans that R wears show that before his zombie phase he really did have a sense of style. These Lee Modern Series Straight-fit jeans are beautifully made and at a bargain price. Manufactured from 98% cotton and 2% spandex, along with looking good, these quality jeans will also fit very comfortably. Any sudden manoeuvres ‘R’ has to make, either in pursuit of chasing humans, or avoiding those Boneys, he can be sure his movements will not be hampered by ill-fitting jeans! These straight-fit jeans have a button front and are machine washable. They sit comfortably below the waist and feature 5 pockets, ideal for holding whatever zombies carry in their pockets.
Warm Bodies Black Wig
R wears his jet black shoulder length hair in a natural style that requires little attention. If you do not naturally have the same hair colour and style as R, the easiest solution is to wear a wig for an instant transformation into our undead hero. We have selected a quality wig that is easy to maintain as it can be washed using a mild shampoo in cold water. The wig should not be exposed to extreme heat. It is great for cosplay , Halloween or comic conventions but is also suitable for daily wear. There are adjustable hooks inside the cap to ensure a snug individual fit.
Warm Bodies ‘R’ Verdict
R is a great character to play especially as his costume is simple to put together, comfortable to wear and he is such a well known and liked character. The items we have recommend are all quality products that should endure. For the best ‘R’ look, the clothes need to be distressed, preferably with makeup and fake blood.
