At the late night, double feature, Picture show......

Can you guess what I did Halloween night?

Here is my entry for the costume challenge.

I give you Magenta!

In her sweet Transexual Space Suit from the final scenes of the film Rocky Horror Picture Show.


*note the shoulder are even I just stand funny in heals. Embarrassed

front a bit closer:



Here is a reference pic.


This took about 8 hours, 2 yards black velvet, 3 yards of gold Lycra, 1 1/2 yards black pleather, 1 1/2 rolls of black thread, 13 feet of wire, 1/2 a roll of batting, wig, a white stick on wizards beard (cut in two and used for part of the wig) and a whole can of hair spray to style the wig (let me tell you I was pretty nervous when the lady next to me got out her lighter for the "there's a light" bit).

Being that I live in Alaska and the temp fell to -1 F on Halloween night (better then last year's -22 F) I decided black leggings would be better then lace panties, garters and fishnets Wink.

Dang this is cool! I performed in rocky horror at my local theater for 3 years and your costumes were better than our magenta's! Great job you should do costumes for rocky theaters!

Thanks. I have to say tho that space magenta was the only costume I felt comfortable enough to wear (yes, I admit I have body image issues, which is so out of place at a RHPS production). Besides I didn't want to blend into the sea of frenchmaid-type magentas (and boy were there a lot of them).

I think I was the most photographed person there and was continually mistaken for a cast member (I don't know how many times I had tell people "Oh I'm sorry I don't work here" or "I don't know I'm not in the show, but ask a cast member they can help you."

Thank you. I would love to do costumes for a rocky group but sadly we don't have any in my area (Fairbanks, Alaska) this production that I went to was a "One Night Only" event for Halloween.

It was great and I do hope that they do it again next year. They must have had 400-500 people or more show (and they only had rented a room for and set out chairs for about 100 to start, they had to open up entire ballroom in the building were it was showing).

I don't know if there is a big call for space suit rocky costumes, but I could be wrong in which case perhaps I could sell them online...... Wink

thanks, and the gloves were totally last minute and wasn't sure if I had enough fabric left but I lucked out and was able to piece together some of my scraps to make them.
