What to wear for The Rocky Horror?

Is it your first time? Don’t worry Rocky Horror virgins, you don’t have to dress up in fishnet stockings, suspenders and a basque! Although you will fit right in if you do and, of course, females may also wear these items!

Be a sexy French maid like Magenta, sport a top hat and shorts like Columbia, dress preppy and clean-cut like Brad and Janet or go full Dr Frank ‘n’ Furter in a glamorous lace corset and high heels – it’s up to you! Or just wear something casual and comfortable for the rockiest night of your life! Everyone is welcome.

But please remember to follow the simple three-step guide of clothes that should never be worn to Rocky, as follows:

  1. Suits. These are only worn by people who thought they were booking for Phantom of the Opera and called the wrong number.
  2. Sandals, anoraks or anything with a touch of the trainspotter.
  3. A striped top. That’s just a Rocky Horror no go…

So, for what to wear for The Rocky Horror Show remember the golden rule – no matter what you decide – everyone is there to enjoy the evening, pure and simple!

And most important – it’s just a jump to the left…
