Rocky Horror Picture Show Costumes

Rocky Horror Picture Show Frank-N-Furter Adult CostumeThe Rocky Horror Picture Show is a parody musical that quickly exploded into a cult classic in the 1970s.

Still playing in movie theaters over 30 years since its original release, RHPS is a global hit. Fans wait with antici…(say it!)…pation for annual Halloween screenings and line up for weekly shows. Keep reading for great ideas on a Rocky Horror Picture Show costume, the story of the film and its cultural phenomenon, and more tips on how to play the Rocky Horror part.

Rocky Horror Picture Show – The Film

Where can you see a transvestite from the planet Transexual in the galaxy of Transylvania, a cryogenically-frozen motorbike racer, and Frankenstein’s monster as a golden Adonis in hot pants, all in one place? The Rocky Horror Picture Show, of course.

The film begins with Brad and Janet, a recently engaged couple, stranded when their car breaks down in a rainstorm. Eventually, they find and seek refuge in Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s castle. The cross-dressing Dr. Frank -N-Furter, played by Tim Curry, just so happens to be throwing a party that very night. All are welcome to come. Absolute madness, piles of cheese and sleaze, and hilarious sexual escapades, all set to catchy musical numbers, soon ensue.

Despite an initially disappointing first run in 1975, The Rocky Horror Picture Show began to catch on as a midnight movie the next year. Fans started dressing as their favorite characters, bringing props to play along (like newspapers to cover their heads when it begins to rain in the film), and acting out the entire movie in front of the screen. More than thirty years later, the phenomena that is The Rocky Horror Picture Show is still, like Rocky, alive.

Rocky Horror Picture Show – The Costumes

Whether you’re dressing up for a midnight Halloween screening of the film, planning a group costume, or just want something a little twisted, Rocky Horror Show costumes are fantastic. Keep reading for a quick rundown of some of the most popular Rocky Horror Picture show characters.

  • Rocky Horror Picture Show Dr. Frank-N-Furter costume Columbia costume Rocky Horror Picture ShowDr. Frank-N-Furter: The classic Frankie costume is his signature corset vest, tight black briefs, garters, gloves, pearls, and fishnet stockings. His black hair is curly and the makeup masterfully done. The face should be pale and ghoulish, with blood red lips and black-gray eye makeup that runs from the lids to the brow. Feel free to tickle your (or other’s) fancy by adding a feather boa. Definitely a manly man!
  • Columbia: A self-described “groupie” and girlfriend to Motorcycle Eddie, Columbia is certainly a character, one done up and undone in glitter. A gold-sequined topcoat, sequin tube top, striped and shiny shorts, red-sequined bow tie and, of course, a gold-sequined bowler all come together to create the Columbia costume. Match it with Mary Jane heels and short socks. Columbia’s hair was red, short, and slicked back.
  • Riff Raff Costume, The Rocky Horror Picture Show Magenta Costume, The Rocky Horror Picture ShowRiff Raff: Riff Raff is the surly butler who lets madness take control. A too small tailcoat, ill-fitted white shirt, black pants, fingerless gloves, and ghoulishly white, long hair make the Riff Raff costume.
  • Magenta: As the castle’s domestic, Magenta wears a sexy french maid costume and is known for her infamous laugh. She also plays a major part in “The Time Warp,” one of the most popular musical numbers and dances from the film.

Playing The Rocky Horror Picture Show Part on Halloween

The best way to prepare for your Rocky Horror role is to watch the movie and come prepared. Make it fun by searching online for call back scripts – these are movie scripts that include the parts where the audience is supposed to shout back or participate in the film. Take these elements, like the toilet paper that gets thrown when someone shouts “Great Scot!”, and include them in your party antics. Bring some cheese and have some cross-dressing fun!
