Not only did I attend the Friends Pop Up, in honor of the show’s 25th Anniversary, but Regal theaters took part in screening 4 episodes of Friends a night last weekend. I heard about this and thought, that would be so cool to watch FRIENDS in a theater. So I bought tickets for me and my sister in law.
I also roped her into dressing like one of the characters. To other people we just looked like we were wearing normal clothes but to us, well, we were Monica and Rachel of course!
So as I was waiting for my sister in law, I kind of had a little photo booth prop-selfie session. My sister in law had gotten me these photo props a little bit ago from Primark (I believe) and I thought it would be fun to pull them out. I also was even more of a geek and created a “Central Perk Cold Brew” label for our coffees, since it was so hot out that day. 😉
The 4 episodes that they were screening on the night we went were:
The One With The Prom Video
The One Where No One’s Ready
The One With The Morning After
The One With The Embryos
This day was a good choice, because these are some of my favorite episodes.
We got our pop corn and our massive sodas and sat back and laughed with like minded, friends lovin’ souls who quoted the show and clapped along to the intro. I would love to watch FRIENDS like that everyday!
My sister in law channeled this Rachel Green Outfit.
I channeled this Monica Look…
Becoming Monica Geller
What You Need For This Look:
White button down shirt
Dark Wash Jeans (high waisted would have worked better)
Black shoes with white laces (I chose black and white sneakers)
Silver dangly earrings (chose the bigger pair)
Silver watch (I didn’t have a watch, so I chose the skinnier silver bracelet)
2 Silver Rings
1 Turquoise Ring (I chose the smaller one)
Hair parted on the side
Slightly flipped at the bottom hair (I just used a straightener to flip out the bottom ends)
Aside from the red lipstick, I kept my makeup pretty natural on my eyes. As I was researching the fashion of the three girls, I realized Monica was the one I had most in common with. She is laid back and comfortable. At times she’ll throw on a skirt or dress, but she usually keeps it casual. She often rocked red lips, sneakers, button ups, high waited jeans and silver jewelry. Watches and turquoise were super in too!
It was super fun to dress like one of the girls, and to watch friends on the big screen. My sister in law and I had a good time. And I can’t wait to celebrate more FRIENDS anniversaries in the future.
