Frank Floorshow Dress

I went to the Rocky Horror Picture Show’s 40th Anniversary at the Albert Hall just before Halloween 2015. I’d decided to make another dress based on a Frank costume because I wasn’t entirely keen on walking around in my underwear. This time I chose the Floorshow Corset as the base.

Red corset, gold sequinned opera glove, fishnet opera glove, stole, feather headpiece, platform shoes with red rhinestones.

I didn’t have time to make a dress so luckily I found this one which was a perfect base.

I’d made a faux fur stole as a winter scarf.

But it was too big and too light.

So I whipped up a smaller and darker one.

I added eyelets to the split at the front of the dress, beaded the top and glued on sequins.

Oh, hello leather jacket!

I shortened the dress and added a ruffle.

Then I sequinned the gold glove and sewed on feathers around the top.

Rhinestoned a pair of platforms I had kicking around (yes, I have platforms kicking around).

Made a feather headpiece.

Pinned up my hair, did my make-up.

I put on one of Jen’s Deadly Sting “Boss” tattoos and that was that.
