I Feel The Need, The Need For Speed In 3D!!

If TruffleShuffle.com wasn't named after the dance Chunk does in The Goonies movie it would probably be called Great Balls Of Fire or something to do with Top Gun! Us Trufflers are huge 80's movies fans and so of course we were massively excited to hear about Top Gun being re-released in 3D.

So Maverick and Goose are getting ready to enter the danger zone once again with the added bonus of 3D. The company responsible for the remake are Legend3D and they have been busy at work converting the film for an early 2012 release however there hasn't been an official announcement by Paramount yet. According to Legend3D's CEO they want to get director Tony Scotts approval first, we do hope he likes it!

Just think - Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis and the gang in 3 dimension, that fly by scene is going to be A-maz-ing!!

If Top Gun isn't your cup of tea then perhaps you might favour one of the other classic films getting the 3D re-release treatment with the Lion King out now and George Lucas planning to release ALL THE STAR WARS FILMS over the next couple of years!

What do you think? An opportunity to see the iconic film again on the big screen, another staff night out to be planned we think!

Who Ya Gonna Call?

This week we've just launched a brand new collection of Ghostbusters T-shirts from Fame and Fortune.  Of course this got everyone in the office buzzing, but I was most excited of all cause designing these Tees was my first ever project for TruffleShuffle!  Seeing the final results of my work is such a great feeling and it took me back to when I had just started working here as a designer.  For me there couldn’t have been a more perfect starting point as I am a huge fan of the classic film, I remember that I couldn’t wait to get started!

The first step towards building a new collection of tees is to really research your subject, so luckily for me it was the perfect opportunity to spend an evening in and watch the film again for the 100th time, any excuse will do!  I knew there were a number of bases I had to cover, everyone loves Stay Puft, Slimer is a definite and we really wanted to see the Ecto-1, but it was really useful (and fun) to see the film again as it refreshed my mind and reminded me of some really classic catchphrases and scenes.  It was the best way to get me back in the Ghostbusting state of mind!

As well as the ultra popular “Who ya gonna call?” and “I ain’t afraid of no ghost” I loved the phrases “Don’t cross the streams” and “When the light is green the trap is clean” and was determined to get them included on one of the tees!

I also included the Ghostbusters Montage design to show our four heroes fighting against some of the monsters from the film as well as a special appearance from the ghost best know from the films main logo!

Bert and Ernie will not marry!

While catching up on all the news this week TruffleShuffle spotted an amusing story about two of our favourite Sesame Street characters and just had to share it with you! Sesame Street makers have confirmed that Bert and Ernie, best friends forever will not be getting married as was hoped by fans.

The odd pair first appeared on our screens in 1969 with the intention of teaching children that people can be good friends with those who are very different from themselves. Despite numerous campaigns and petitions calling for the couple to get married the Sesame Street show makers have decided that the duo shall remain very good friends!

For now the quirky characters including other Sesame Street friends Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Oscar The Grouch and The Count will continue to entertain 120 million viewers across 140 countries, pretty impressive we think.

With such a huge fan base we thought we would introduce our amazing new collaboration with Sesame Street! Exclusive to TruffleShuffle, each limited edition design has been inspired by old school music iconography for the ultimate in 'Street' fashion. Available in both men's and ladies sizes, which one spins your decks?

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street......?!

Minnie Mawi! The latest Disney Couture Collaboration!

There were squeals of excitement and delight in the TruffleShuffle.com office this week when it was announced that Disney Couture has partnered up with London-based costume jewellery company, Mawi, to create a limited-time collection celebrating Minnie Mouse, affectionately called “Minnie Mawi” The collection will fuse Mawi’s recognizable aesthetic of contemporary style paired with traditional influences, with Disney Couture’s signature whimsical touches for uniquely special, collectible pieces.

Jewellery designer Mawi Keivom’s signature pieces hold a niche in the contemporary costume jewellery market, appealing to shoppers of all ages. Marrying together her love for trinkets of yesteryear and a bold contemporary vision, Mawi’s collections provide an ornamental meeting place for the past, present and the future. The partnership between Disney Couture and Mawi is quite natural given the many generations that Disney has endeared itself to. The collection pays homage to Minnie Mouse, much-loved since her 1928 debut.

Although we are not able to give you a preview of the collection just yet we have had a sneaky peak and trust us when we say you are going to love it - think glitz and glamour, pearls and ribbons! We especially love the Chanel-esque style range so it is with great anticipation we await our first delivery which is due in September and with prices starting from just £30 for a stunning piece of nostalgia we know these are sure to be snapped up quick!

If however you can't wait for the new sparkly stuff to arrive don't forget you can always check out our huge collection of equally pretty Disney Couture jewellery and clothing on the site right now. We have something for everyone with the likes of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, some beautiful pirate jewels from Pirates Of The Caribbean, Snow White, Cinderella, Alice In Wonderland and of course no Disney treat would be complete without a touch of Tinkerbell!
