Michael Rennie was ill
The Day the Earth Stood Stll
And Flash Gordon was there
in silver underwear
Claude Rains was The Invisible Man
Then something went wrong
For Fay Wray and King Kong
They got caught in the celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace
It Came From Outer Space
And this is how the message ran...

What was meant to be a quartet, turned into a duo...but, I'm happy to do my first collaboration with my pal, the stunning Monika from Rocaille Writes. So, why don't you pay her a visit, or maybe a bite and checkout her Columbia.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show holds a special place in my heart.

As a kid, in the month leading up to Halloween, I would watch snippets of the film (particularly those of the time warp scene). I was captivated by the makeup, costumes, music, and overall dark, yet camp, tone of Rocky.

When I finally watched the entire film, it tapped into my subconscious, and I was hooked. I studied the movie incessantly, participated in the midnight showings, and in my senior year of high school, I got to play one of my favorite characters, Magenta, in our group musical ensemble. I swore, if I didn't get the part, I was going to have to Tanya Harding someone.

It's been well over 10 years since I've seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show. So, in remembrance of the spirit of the characters and film, I popped in the DVD...and this girl still has it! I remembered everything; reciting each line, and singing along, as I did things around my apartment. A fun way to get your cleaning done.

No need to adjust your monitors, this is my natural hair. I just combed out the curls to give it that Magenta flare. 

Also, this collaboration was very last minute. So, I wasn't able to get a costume mailed out to me on time.

  1. Liz, you look beyond fabulous!!! And how jealous I am of your natural curls, they're beautiful. Hahah, I find it pretty funny that we both ended the post with the same tagline. Thanks for including me in the collab, it was a lot of fun!

    1. Ditto Monika, you totally channeled Columbia in your look. It is funny that we unintentionally chose the same way to end our posts :)

      Thank you for joining me on this post, and here's to many more ;)

  2. Just went to Monika's site and you also look the part as Magenta! Love both of your renditions, great fun theme!

    1. Hi Claire! I think Monika did a stellar job with her Columbia. Glad you enjoyed these posts ;)

  3. Your curly hair looks absolutely FABULOUS! You should wear it like that more often <3

    1. Why thank you Caroline! I think I may wear my hair curly more often :)

  4. Liz you have amazing hair!!! �� you have the most fun ideas! I have at least another year to finally watch the movie now. Your interpretation is so skilled.

    1. We can swap hair, because I think yours is amazing! I have another idea is the mix that we'll have to talk about :)

  5. You look so much like the original character in the movie Lol

  6. You have the hair I always wanted...so jealous! You and Monika nailed your looks, totally true to the movie.

    1. LOL, girl, you can have it! J/K, but it is a pain during the sweltering humid Summers in Tokyo. Monkia made a perfect Columbia didn't she?! Love her :)
