Women's and Men's Fishnet Tights for Rocky Horror Picture Shows

1. Hair

Depending on how you wear your hair now and how dark it is, you may be able to achieve this sweet transvestite’s style on your own. Dr. Frank N. Furter’s hair isn’t short but it isn’t long either, it’s curly and the style is a bit like your Great Aunt Eunice’s. To shave minutes off your costume prep and prevent a time warp, look for a decent wig online.

Here are some inexpensive Dr. Frank N. Furter wigs.

2. Makeup

The fun part of dressing like the mad-scientist is bold makeup applied with a devil-may-care attitude. You don’t want to look like the wrong kind of fright, so use some care in application, but don’t be intimidated because the look is really quite simple to achieve. Check out this easy makeup tutorial below.

3. Outfit

The iconic outfit of Frank N. Furter is credited as directly influencing the punk music scene during the evolution of the genre. It’s no wonder that dressing up for a performance of Rocky Horror Picture Show has continued to be an American pastime since the Waverly in 1976.
