Hair:

Dr. Frank-N-Furter sports voluminous black hair styled into curls and short bangs. Use a long, curly black wig or style your own hair big and tall. Hairspray will help maintain the height. Apply bright red lipstick across your mouth and up your cheeks for Frank-N-Furter’s signature dramatic lip outline.

Makeup:

Frank-N-Furter wears heavy pale foundation and thick black eyeliner extended out past the eyes with high arched eyebrows. Use white eyeshadow and finish with massive false eyelashes. Color your nails with glittery dark polish.

Top:

Frank-N-Furter’s most iconic look includes a black satin and lace corset worn over a floor-length see-through black cape. Find a corset that fits slim against the waist and pairs with black underwear or shorts. Accessorize with black fishnet stockings clipped to a garter belt.

Bottom:

Wear black high-heeled pumps to reach Frank-N-Furter’s towering height. Finish off the outfit with elbow-length sequined gloves.

Props:

Carry a copy of the lab manual used to build Rocky like in the film’s scenes. Other fun additions could include a feather boa, bells on your shoes that jingle as you walk, or a fake ax to reenact the movie’s ending.


About Dr. Frank-N-Furter

Dr. Frank-N-Furter is the main antagonist and absolute scene stealer of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” He is a mad scientist from the planet Transsexual obsessed with creating the perfect man.

After succesfully bringing his muscular creation Rocky to life, Frank-N-Furter invites an unsuspecting couple, Brad and Janet, up to his alien laboratory castle to seduce them with his flamboyant and pansexual nature.

With his disregard for social norms, sexual exploration, and exuberant self-confidence, Frank-N-Furter teaches the once-innocent couple to lose their inhibitions and live a little.
