Rocky Horror Picture Show

There are few films as iconic as the Rocky Horror Picture show.  Nobody who saw it stepped out of the theatre or away from the screen as they were before, and the songs worm their way into your mind forever.
RHPS showings bring together people from a variety of backgrounds to enjoy and participate in the screenings and the shows, and as such is a unique cultural phenomenon. It was, of course, just a question of time when we’ll be attending a show and want to do our own version of the famous dress-up.
Being of a rockabilly and pinup persuasion, we naturally added our own twist to the iconic costumes. 

Dammit Janet is for the sweet, sweet ladies… well, almost. The innocence of the deery me dress and the demure cardigan and jewellery are brought into question when you take one look at the platform heels.

Time Warp is very tongue in cheek. We’re not ones for button up shirts, but we honour the occasion with a lovely black and white polka dot top, cigarette pants that are almost formal, and two-tone saddle shoes. The cherry on top are the clock-hand earrings.

I can make you a man is our take on the iconic scrubs and pink gloves scene. We prefer form flattering dresses and our latex in a more shapely form, but satin opera gloves and show girl platforms will indeed bring out the man, or creature of the night in your object of desire.

Hot Patootie is the perfect homage to the bad and the mad boy RHPS.  Who could resist an outfit of sleek black paired with animal print and accented with bright red details?

April Showers

Bring May flowers!  Everyone knows that one, right? But what to do and what to wear when those showers can just pop out of nowhere and be gone in a matter of minutes?  Well, after the second ruined hair and wet dress, we decided to sit down and come up with some ideas, because we refuse to spend our April days running around in wellies and a plastic raincoat on the off chance it rains.

Pink Tulips bloom all over this this lovely spring themed skirt. A pink umbrella and platforms will keep the rain away from you and provide lovely accents to the skirt. We kept the top simple, with a flattering sweetheart neckline, and added flower-shaped earrings. What a beautiful way to welcome spring!

Dangerous kitty has no fear of bad hair days rocking this awesome bandana. We kept the colours to red and black, with skinny jeans and creepers giving you that old school slim silhouette, and a classical red top with swallows. The laser-cut kitty earrings and black bangles give it a bit more modern feel you can rock everywhere.

Cream Tea(l) has the teal dress taking centre stage, with the rest of the accessories serving only to accentuate the bright and strong colour and the flattering ladylike cut.  The matching ring gives an additional accent to the hands, and the lipstick is kept creamy and flesh-coloured.

Rain Jewel builds up on the black wiggle dress with deep rich ruby and emerald tones. No need to control you frizz when you can just wear a turban and let the rest of your hair be its glorious rain-kissed self, and when all eyes will be drawn to your deep ruby lips and the wiggle in your step!
