Old Hollywood Style At Universal Studios

Dress: Primark, Sandals: Target
You guys know how I love me some vintage fashion and where better to photograph my latest looks than the beautiful Hollywood area at Universal Orlando Resort.

The Darkroom Facade  Dress: Ebay Vintage
Let me give you some background! This giant camera facade storefront (above) was modelled after The Darkroom camera store. The Darkroom was a famous store on Wiltshire Boulevard, LA which opened in around 1938. It makes for an amazing photo backdrop!  

The Horror Makeup Show Theatre
I LOVE the Horror Makeup Show at Universal! It literally never gets old, it's such a funny show! You'll find it hidden behind the Pantages Theatre facade. It's one of the few shows left that were in Universal Orlando from park opening. The real Pantages Theatre in Hollywood is currently home to some of the biggest musical theatre productions in the country!

Hollywood Streets,  Dress: Vintage eBay

Schwabs Drugsore at Universal Studios
Legend has it that Schwabs Drugstore was where a 16 year old Lana Turner (or Judy Turner as she was then known) was discovered by Mervyn Le Roy, a famous movie director. However, this is not strictly true. The young Lana was, in fact, discovered two miles down the road at Top Hat Cafe on Sunset Boulevard and it wasn't Mervyn Le Roy who spotted her, it was publisher of the Hollywood Reporter, Billy Wilkerson!

The Hollywood Walk of Fame at Universal Orlando features 66 stars names but not all of them feature in the real Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard! Next time you visit Universal Studios take a look at the stars and see if you can work out which mirror the real Walk of Fame and which are impostors!

I hope you've enjoyed this look around one of my favourite areas of Universal Studios. Do you like Hollywood trivia as much as me? 

Next time you visit the park take a look around and see what other hidden gems you can spot!
