Rocky Horror Picture Show Style

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a comedy and musical, telling the story about sweethearts Janet and Brad, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode.

This was a flick that my parents never allowed me to see.  Maybe that’s why I love it so much!!! ❤

Sexual  explicitness!  Fresh & different songs!  Susan Sarandon! Tim Curry!  The outrageous hair + makeup +outfits!

Audience participation!!

For all these reasons, R.H.P.S. has always been a favourite of mine.


I’ve yet to go to a screening of this flick in full costume — so, when I heard this  1975 cult classic was recently remade by FOX and aired on TV last week.  A screening party was in order.

Naturally I was ready to cringe, hiss and boo at the screen … but one thing was clear: it HAD to be watched, and in full dress-up too!

What I Wore

It was agreed that dress-up needed, but to exclude nips and be longer than one’s vajayjay 😛

I found this $10 tee from Black Market Vintage the day before … and worked my outfit magic by shopping my closet to make this look work:

Sorry for the indoor shots – but it was raining and I didn’t wanna get on my balcony.

Pretty tame for R.H.P.S…. I know…but still dope I think.  Plus, I’m wearing fish net stockings. You can’t really tell from these photos, but I promise they’re there! 🙂fullsizerender-10

How I Got The Look:

Tuxedo jacket, HBC Jessica Simpson (click here for other looks); Graphic R.H.P.S. tank, Black Market Vintage; Wine skirt, Reitmans; Mini top hat fascinator, BIGDeal consignment sale (click here for that); Fish nets stockings (old); Mary Jane shoes, Payless

And then of course excessive hair and make up was required 😉

I’m rubbish at big hair and eye shadow application … so this was as good as it was going to get for both!

My pitiful attempt at “big hair” trying to harness my inner Magenta

What I Did

The Gladstone Hotel hosted a screen party for the FOX’s Rocky Horror Picture Show  set the tone with a little Drag-Queen pre-show and post show…

There weren’t too many of us dressed up for the screening – just me + my girl Eli + the performers and our server 🙂

Here’s a little 30s clip of one of the Drag performers: Dottie Dangerfield

Don’t Dream It. Be It.

Overall, the new FOX version wasn’t as terrible as I thought it was going to be.  There were some fabulous moments and it was pretty entertaining.

But, the original still has my heart! ❤

Who among you watched it?  How do you think it compared with the original? What do you think of my R.H.P.S. Style?
