Queen are my favourite rock group of all time. As far as I am concerned, they play better than anyone else has done before or since, they sing better than anyone else, and they have a better catalogue of hits than anyone else, apart from perhaps the Beatles.
However, what is sometimes forgotten is how good they looked visually, especially Freddie. Mr. Mercury was wearing outrageous frocks from the mid-seventies, but perhaps his most iconic costume was that yellow jacket and white trousers outfit that he wowed some of the largest crowds ever seen, at stadiums all around the world, throughout the 80’s.
It is now possible to buy some quite authentic looking replicas of that Freddie Mercury yellow jacket and white trousers combo and below is a review of the three outfits that I believe offer the best value for money.I Will Rock You
This 2-piece outfit, consisting of a white jumpsuit (with vest style top) and a yellow jacket, is a wonderful example of a Freddie Mercury fancy dress outfit and pound for pound offers the best value for money of all the outfits mentioned here.
You might want to think about getting the Warhol Black Wig to accompany the Freddie Mercury yellow jacket costume, and comb the short black wig so that it looks like Freddie’s 80’s crop.

You may also want to consider buying the Groovy Black Moustache, which is as close to a Freddie Mercury moustache fancy dress accessory as I have seen, but you will need to trim it to make it more authentic looking.
