Magenta

Space Suit

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Last Updated: 06-10-2012


To the girls that have attempted this costume, you guys are flippin' awesome! This costume looks complicated, but to tell you the truth the costume's really easy, but the Wig is a whole different story though T^T

I got quilted gold lamé at Hancock Fabrics (you can also purchase it online). The Pattern is basically it's a rectangle for the back and an iron cross for the front (recommend measuring your tatas before hand) The shoulder pads are a bit difficult, basically they're two big triangles but the ends 'rectangle off' (if that makes any sense @^@) The Belt is silver spandex, while the front buckle is pexi-glass and four long vinyl rectangles painted gold. The Gloves themselves are already pre-made but the Cuffs are the same material as the shoulder pads, Black Vinyl, and attached to the silver gloves by velcro on the top of the hand. I haven't finished the boots and the ankle bracelet (down on finances)

Underneath Magenta wears a black bra with sequence, a black grader belt, a black bikini like bottom and fishnet stockings.

The Wig @.@... are you ready.... here we go, the wig is a Sepia Auburn Brooke, Extra Long, I bought at 'Austin's The Bazaare'. Then at Walmart I bought one of those Foam Sphere (For children's Planet Projects) Carved into it so I could wear it. Painted it dark red, then cut a hole from the wig, where the sphere will be placed. The remaining wefts were glued onto the sphere, then with fishing wire I sewed the foam hairy sphere onto the wig. Then with got2b hairspray layer by layer glued the hair's down. Bought a cheap $10 white child's witches wig, cut long wefts hairsprayed curves and sewed it to the front. With the remaining fishing wire sewed parts to stay down and I have to use bobby pins to keep in on.

The make-up is really easy if you follow Anal Retentive's guide to Magenta's make-up and/or watch pixiwoo's tutorial linked below
