Wednesday4

Have you introduced your daughter to the Addams Family Movie yet? Maybe she is still a little too small still, because this movie is rated PG-13 after all. Or maybe you are a more liberal spirited family that lets the kids watch what they want for the most part. Either way you can have fun with Rivals new girls toddlers swimwear that set out to honour everyone’s favourite little Addams, Wednesday.

Wednesday’s character was known for her memorable role as the young daughter with a dark attitude like you can see in this scene from the Family Values where Wednesday pretends to not to be able to swim in order to not save her fellow camp mate. Wednesday knew how to bring the clouds out on any sunny day to make us all laugh at our own optimistic trifles.

The Wednesday Girls Tutu Cute One Piece captures some of the characters inner darkness with midnight black and hot pink. The cut of this one piece include a cute little skirt that compliments the striped-edgy look of this swimwear. Ruching on the chest of the swimwear gives the pattern a little extra fun texture. It is a perfect spooky look for little girls who love to twirl while working on their evillest laugh for Halloween.

For a cover up there is the Wednesday Girls Rash Shirt that features the same cute and black and pink colours of the one piece. A skull and bone decal with a girlie bow gives this look a frighteningly cute touch. To put a bit of punk rock style in it there are black and pink ruffle details on the long sleeves. Great for girls who love there scary things to come in pink!

If you and your little girl wished Halloween was more than once a year she is just going to love this creepy twist on swimwear. Who says a bit of Halloween Celebration can go on in the pool anyways? Happy Halloween from swimmer.com.au!

How to Keep Your Competitive Edge Razor Sharp

Funky Razor Blast Swimwear

Swimming is one of the few sports where you only get one shot at your goal. There are no timeouts, substitutes or half times. It is just you, your head, the water and your swimwear. We at swimmer.com.au believe that what you wear in the pool can help make or break athletes. Not that a certain type of swimwear will necessarily make anyone swim faster, but how the swimwear makes the swimmer feel while in a heat can be a game changer.

Australian swimmer Elka Graham said, “In training everyone focuses on 90% physical and 10% mental, but in races its 90% mental because there’s very little that separates us physically at the elite level.” We definitely agree with Ms. Graham’s sentiment, but we think this extends to almost all levels of athletic swimming. If a swimmer isn’t right in the head during a meet, most of the time they are going to have difficulty performing.

Any boost, including swimwear that makes you feel confident, can be used to your advantage when it comes the time to compete against fellow swimmers. One line from Funky Trunks and Funkita we felt channelled the good attitude swimmers need when hitting the pool was the Razor Blast print. The “Razor” in the name and the sharp edges on the print reminded us of the razor thin adjustment swimmers have to make to adjust their techniques. Not to mention the action of “shaving” off seconds from your time by working hard.

The Razor Blast print features blue, black and indigo stripes zigzagging horizontally across the print. On top of looking good with a motivational name, the Razor Blast swimwear is designed for athletic swimmers by the team at Funky Trunks. The design team at Funky Trunks are swimmer themselves, so historically they’ve done a great job at putting out top notch fitness and athletic swimwear. The print is available for all genders and ages, so check it out by following the links below.

Find Out if Picasso was a Fluke or a Genius with Funky Swimwear

Colour Frame

Just for the fun of it, we wanted to mix things up in this blog by starting with a question for you swimwear lovers out there! Do you think the following passage is true or false?

“When Picasso was in pre-school his first paintbrush was a potato. In fact he used it so much they called him Potato Picasso. Lost for decades these incredible works of art were discovered stuck to an old fridge and demonstrated young Potato’s love for his sand pit and paddling pool.”

If you though the answer if false, congratulations! You get one million internet bonus points!

Funky swimwear never backs away from their humorous marketing, so the above passage is actually their marketing team pulling the reader’s leg. This passage is from The Funky 2013 Swimwear Magazine about their Colour Frame and Ocean Sands prints that available for boys, girls, men and women.

Maybe the fridge gave it away for you, because fridges for the home weren’t invented until the 1910’s. Maybe the thought of calling any child Potato seemed a little off putting. Maybe you even thought it was true, and Funky Trunks marketing team got you this time. Or maybe you already knew a little bit about Picasso’s childhood to know this passage was improbable, but if not, let us fill you in.

From a very young age Picasso showed a remarkable knack for classical (realistic) drawing. Check out this link to see how at the age of 13 Picasso created works that outdo what most adults artists can produce ever. That is why by age 13 Picasso was admitted to a top School of Fine Arts in France. Not until later in life would Picasso begin using his signature style that appears child-like due to the abstract nature of it. It is funny to think that in order to create his child-like art, Picasso actually needed to mature in his artsy techniques!

Jokes aside, Funky Trunks does a great job of mimicking the cubic style in original patterns seen on their athletic swimwear this swim season. The Ocean Sands and Colour Frame prints offer wave-inspired pictures repeated in little cubes to create an eye popping look. Check out the Colour Frame prints available in a variety styles in the following links. With these swimwear styles you can take a little bit of Picasso’s style with you whenever you hit the water.
