Oh WOW..!

The next House of Verse on Sat March 17th at the 2Funky Music Cafe is officially…


We thought we’d compile an underwater feast of themed finspiration for you to gobble up with your gills and get those brainy barnacles of yours oxygenated! This blog is full of ideas for costumes, games, small talk, sea-based spirit animals, aquatic faux pas… and much more!

(for full effect, feel free to play this relaxing oceanic browsing music)


Fisht off… Costume!

Woah there cool dude, just swimming my own business here

Why not take things one step further and terrify your aquatic compadres with this underwater equivalent of a Halloween costume?

You can go full paper Mâche fantasea of course… but be careful not to take a dip! These costumes may look the party but come into contact with water and you’ll come out looking like a blob fish!

If in doubt, P.Y.U (Pimp Your Umbrella) and set your stingers to stun with this fine look (with the added bonus of not having to talk to anyone you don’t want to talk to).

Now let’s learn the lingo!

Sure you may LOOK like a fish, but can you SOUND like a fish?
