Well, as previously mentioned, the hub and I went with fellow blogger Dawn of Suitcase Vignettes and her hub to a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show...
The hub and I are HUGE fans of Halloween and decided to jump at the chance to "dress up" The movie was actually at the tail end of the Monster Mania conference so we knew others were going to be dressed up too. We took the time before the show to have a couple beverages and goof around...
The hub - handsome devil!
Me and the hub - cute couple!
My friend Fluffy!
Run Fluffy Run!
Rob & Dawn
Dawn and the "Hound from Hell" my baby, Harley!
Then it was off to the show! If you've never been to a live showing of the movie, you should. The movie itself is very risque, bawdy and campy - oh my! The actors do a live version while the movie plays and there are props that the audience uses and a back and forth dialog between the characters and the audience - not for the kiddies! Here were some pics of the production:
All in all, I thought they did an excellent job and I think the audience (well, most of the audience!) had a good time.
I was really impressed by some of the girls on the stage who wore very skimpy costumes even though they may have had a few extra pounds and/or dimples or bumps here or there. Even if I had what the media considers a "perfect" body, I don't know that I could have put myself out there like that. They were just having fun and being themselves! It's nice to see plus size gals (and guys!) just being who they are and letting their inner beauty shine! Afterall - beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and colors!
