Seventies-inspired dressing-up fun!

Full of ’70s fashion and music, Rapunzel: A Groovy 1970s Fairy Tale makes for great dressing-up inspiration. Will you choose flared trousers and a polo neck jumper? Perhaps crazy platform shoes and psychedelic printed dresses? There’s lots of top 70s style ideas to be found in the illustrations and tactile pictures, all evocatively described on the audio guide with a funky music soundtrack.

You could even channel your inner Ziggy Stardust by using face paint to recreate the iconic lightning bolt makeup!

Additionally, our Fashion Now! and Music Now! Touch to See titles will give you heaps of dressing-up ideas to complement the ones found in Rapunzel. They contain interactive guides on fashion and music throughout the last 60 years so have even more cool inspiration for your retro look! To get you started, one idea would be to use the sections on punk rockers in Fashion Now! to create a punk Rapunzel or Roger dressing-up look for a creative twist on the characters.
