Let's Do the Time Warp Again!

An old photo this week. I thought I'd share it here, as only four people have actually seen this outfit.

Jazz hands!

In October of 2011 the art gallery planned a screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Some friends asked me if I wanted to go. You bet I did! I hadn't been to Rocky Horror in more than twenty years. I was stoked. I went often in my university days. Heck, I still know the words to all the songs.

Of course, none of my original Rocky Horror outfits were still in existence, nor would they have been suitable for a woman of a certain age, so I hit the thrift shops. I was thrilled to find a twelve-dollar, second-hand tuxedo on my first try. A trip the the dollar store for glasses and a wig, plus a trip to the dancewear store for a bow tie and a hat and I was set. I was going to be one rocking Transylvanian. I don't think any of my outfits were this awesome back in the day.

Then they cancelled the show. Boooooooo!  Hiss!  Boring!

All was not lost. The four of us who planned to go the the show still got together. We wore our costumes, ate Chinese take-out and watched Rocky Horror on DVD. We had a great time. 

Still, only four people saw the costume. I think we can do better than that! Such an awesome costume deserves to be visible, so I'm sharing it over at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday. Stop by and see what Patti and all the rocking women are wearing. 


  1. aww, man, they cancelled the show! But thank for sharing this with Visible Monday, so now *millions* will get to see it! : > Love this look.

  2. Thanks Patti! Millions might be too much pressure.

    I wasn't happy with the outfit I had chosen for this week's Visible Monday. It's funny how outfit photos can help me see what works and what doesn't. I still wanted to play though, and this photo just made me smile. Hope others get a laugh too!

    I've stopped colouring my hair, so this "look", or one much like it, may appear again in the near future.

  3. HAAAA! What a cool post, Laurie! I'm so glad you posted this, it is so fun. Haven't done the Time Warp in a long time ... it's one thing the huz and I don't see the same way at all.
    I do understand why he might not see Tim Curry as hot in any way, but am still a little embarrassed that I do!
    He does use "Damn it, Janette!" sometimes ...
    So glad you came out to play!

  4. Thanks Jan! Hubby isn't particularly keen on Rocky Horror either. Though he was happy to help me find costume accessories and to take my picture before I went out. Oddly, he even watched the Glee version with me. We never watch Glee!

    Heeeheee. Dammit Janette. What a clever man you have!
