This used to be such a great group. I see no activity in over a year. Has the group moved to another site?

Subject:Columbia 1973 Costume Help
Time:08:23 pm
At the end of this month I'm going to a rocky horror showing and need help with my costume.
I am planning on creating my look based off the original 1973 Columbia

These are my thoughts so far but I would very much appreciate any information that people could give me!

Here are links to the look:


White waistcoat or tank top? (black back)- very low-cut- sequins and hot glue
Black suspenders
Black fishnet tights
Silver ring and blue nail polish (around middle of ring)
Black hot pants and sequins/ glitter, hot glue
Black cropped leggings and needle and thread and white ribbons- chop off leggings, sew in ribbons vertically a couple inches apart
Red chunky- heeled mary jane shoes (sequins/ rhinestones?), hot glue
Bow tie (?) and sequins/ glitter
Black socks- regular length, sequins
Red sock suspenders

Hair: short red wig (trim down a longer one) and wig cap
Make-up: Clown white, sponges, setting powder- white, powder brush, face moisturizer, primer, red or black nails (?), Spirit wax and gum (?) for covering brows, Black pencil liner- draw in brows and lips, Sparkly gray eye shadow and brush, Black liquid liner, mascara, false lashes, Black lipstick, black eye shadow (set lips), Contour/Highlight/ Blusher (?)- red lipstick

Time:11:54 pm
Sorry for the shameful plug but I'm selling some of my costumes that I've made or bought over the years. Thought some of you might be interested in them so posting the link here http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/columbia_3.16/m.html?item=200947745034&pt=Adult_Fancy_Dress_UK&hash=item2ec96b410a&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

Subject:Feeling USA lingerie sale - anyone need a size 14W floorshow shoes?
Time:10:08 pm
Feeling USA is doing a shoe clearance sale, which includes several sizes of black patent floorshow shoes for $5 each.

This may not includ your size, but if you are the person looking for a size 14 wide, that' stealing to get it for $5.

Shipping is extra.
Use "holiday" promo code to get 10% off. If anyone's interested, they have a bunch of other stuff on sale too.

Notably, if you're broke and looking for a cheap corset:
The "Strapless Chic Corset" is available in black satin for $19.95 and looks like it would work for floorshow (I have never purchased a "Forplay Lingerie" corset so I can't vouch for the quality; original price is $70 and that price range is usually OK quality).
http://www.feelingusa.com/products.cfm?cat=56&grp=218&prodid=4747 is another strapless corset; it's got the "Hustler Rose" on it (boo) and is available in S, M and L for $19.95. "Light padding for extra pushup" might be bad news.

Subject:Waitress/housekeeper type uniforms (Usherette)
Time:10:00 pm
I was very disappointed with myself when I waited too long to pick up a waitress style uniform from a website that disappeared.

Apparently the key is to think "housekeeper" instead of waitress; button-down-the-front uniform dresses can still be had.

http://www.fullsource.com/ has them in light blue and white only, $25, including shipping, large sizes available for slightly more.

https://www.uniformsinstock.com/ is $39 including shipping, but they have pink (and yellow and teal and various types of apron).  I was tempted.  They also have what look like almost-Magenta dresses (white collar and cuffs on dark dress - cuffs are stated to be "grey cord" and yes, there are all sorts of weird non-Magenta details like kick pleats).  Amusing that the "uniform" look still works all these years later.

Any creative rocky horror fans out there, do I ever have a challenge for you!
I have been thinking very hard about this and I really need someone else's opinion on this...
Does anyone have any idea where the insipiration for Columbia's costumes came from

My ideas are:
Marilyn Monroe (hourglass silhouette) and stereotypical broadway girl

Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Does anyone know of a place to pick up the sequined fabric online?  The only site that I can find that has anything close and doesn't have a 1000 meter minimum is www.sequinsdirect.com.  The closest they come has a spring-weave or a jersey knit for the fabric and goes for $44.40/yd and $49.30/yd, respectively.  They have every color you could think of though!  I've checked out the local dance suppliers and they have been out for years. :(
