As you no doubt know, here at Props & Frocks we like to keep an eye on what’s going on in the world outside and we are delighted to see that the film documentary on Bob Marley’s life, yesterday hit the UK cinemas (well some of them anyway). This legendary reggae singer, who tragically died of cancer, aged just 36, in May 1984, has been a steady favourite when it comes to costumes (and/or wigs) over many years. Although the Bob Marley look has been wanted for all different types of events, the most popular requests by far are 1970s, Dead Icons or Pop Stars.
