let's do the time warp again and again please

The other night I went to my first midnight shadow performance of Rocky Horror Picture Show, which was also my first time ever seeing the movie (I don't know how I considered myself a human being before either), and I can say with confidence that I've never seen so many thigh highs in my life. Also, Tim Curry's legs! Why is he not on the cover of every women's magazine with tips on improving your stems ever?
I only started taking pictures at the end so sorry for spoilers but YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN IT BY NOW ANYWAY even if I hadn't til Saturday night.
Emotion!
Gusto!
Pizzaz!
It was a good fun time, with lots of elbow sex.
And lots of TP-ing of my friend who made the mistake of falling asleep. Then the assholes behind me who stole my prop bag and claimed they "found" it (IN MY HANDS, PERHAPS?) (ok I left it on my seat but still) had the nerve to photobomb this picture. Then I wrote about them on the internet and felt better about myself! Ha-ha!
Also, the photobombing thieves should have had to clean up after everyone, since they like those prop bags so much.
Also, my friends looked rad, and I was like, man, we could totally be a really stylin gang right about now.
Since I'd never seen it before I didn't try a costume, but everyone thought I was dressed up anyway. Like that time my school didn't let anyone wear Halloween costumes but I did anyway because I'm a rebel. and got away with it because everyone thought it was simply one of my outfits because I'm just so QUIRKY!
I went for creepy Virgin Mary/Virgin Suicides vibes because I'm //edgy and because I'm obsessed with this crown Petra gave me in a CROWN EXCHANGE, which I think should become a national event or traveling van or something:
Ain't it a beauty! My eyeliner is Urban Decay and everything else is thrifted. QUIRKY!
rebel.

Speaking of cultural stereotypes used in teen magazines to tell girls which eyeshadow to wear, you know that thing I'm doing with Jane? If no, here. If yes, it is happening, I'm just not about to go gabbing about it all the time because then you get trapped in these ideas you said long before the bigger idea gets to become a reality and we don't want that. If "yes, I even submitted and wrote you a great email and sent some stuff I'd worked hard on," I would like to extend a long overdue thank you.

We (me, Jane, and one of our editors, so it doesn't sound all vague and creepy and like we're in some giant headquarters skyscraper somewhere) learned a lot going through those, and I feel extremely lucky we get to hear so directly from the audience what they want to see in this. I should've clarified from the beginning -- this was me expecting everyone to read my mind -- that the submission call was for regular contributors. So without sounding too much like I'm under the delusion that you're all waiting outside the door to our headquarters skyscraper with unbearable anticipation, whenever we want a different point of view on this thing or an artist to feature who does that thing, we still get to look into that plethora of 2000 emails. This also makes me feel very lucky.

Also, sorry it took so long. There were so many! Actually looking at them > saying no without thinking enough just to give a quick response. Also, man you all know how to write heartfelt letters. Is there a way I can be a penpal as like, a job?

Last thing I learned and feel lucky about -- we might end up with the coolest audience ever. Thank you again. It's incredibly life-affirming to know people care about this and want this to happen and want it to be good. We do too! I'm excited for you all to see.

And while we're on all this talk, I guest wrote something over at Jane's site, xoJane. OK, fine, I wrote all those paragraphs just now only so I could promote myself and link you to that post. You got me! It's like that time you got me for wanting to self-promote my foot. If you don't know what I'm talking about you should probably read the post I wrote before you can get in on the joke.

I'm just a sweet transvestite from transsexual translvania! Ah, I just love that song. And must I say, you look mighty ravishing as a ginger and those wings on your eyes, will take you higher.
Oh, and I hope you received my artwork, which I sent to you when you were taking submissions. Hotmail, I suppose, is just too v!ntAg3 sometimes when it comes to sending files.

Ofelia said...

haha glad you finally watched the rocky horror! Looked like a fun night!

Success! Another virgin converted!

Jamie Rose said...

Congratulations on being a de-rocky horror virgined! Hooray! Looks like you guys had a fun time! I love your floral hair accessory and the fun eye liner!

Joy said...

Sweet. Nice, still looking forward for and you can find me waiting ardently outside your HQ skyscraper.

zoomslow said...

That was so cool, Tavi! Or maybe it was edgy? In any case, it reminded me of that spy trick, when you write on white paper using a clear candle, and then to read it, you brush over the paper with water-colour. Only this time the paper was my computer screen, the wax candle was your white writing, and the water-colour was the highlighting function of my mouse. Kids these days with their computer-thingys!

I guess you are all of those colourful words, but you know, words are just words. And no one can be defined by words or labels, especially someone as special as you!

You are Tavi. I am the walrus! :-)

†ELMO† said...

THAT´S MY FAVORITE FILM!!
Actually it´s the one and only musical i dig

Jenna said...

Rocky Horror is awesome. Seriously, the songs coupled with the epic plot equals success.
Plus, your outfit is amazing. Very inspiring, actually.
Keep up the amazing work, Tavi.

I went to Rocky Horror every single Saturday night for 3 years straight. I still look back on those years as some of the best in my life (and I even got a Rocky tattoo to commemorate that).<3

Congratulations on your Rocky Virgin being taken. It is such a lovely movie, and it seemed like you had lots of fun.

Elaine said...

I haven't seen Rocky Horror... geez I need to get on it. I'm 16.

Alexandra Pauly said...

my first time seeing a midnight showing of rocky horror was this past halloween, and i'm one year older than you. so y'know. when i went, the first-timers had to go on stage and pretend to have an orgasm. obviously i didn't really want to participate and run the risk of having weird facebook videos floating around the interweb the morning after.

Hadera Burki said...

glad you had a good time.

I love these shots, especially the non-oufit-post shots of your outfit. I have not seen Rocky Horror Picture Show, which is really sad and embarassing.

Haha. To be honest, since I have never seen this show either, I must not be a human being...if I am not, then what am I? I loved the eyeliner and the crown. So cute and original!

Mickey said...

OH. MY. GOD! I CANT BELIEVE YOU'D NEVER SEEN ROCKY HORROR BEFORE!!!!! ok, I saw it for the first time in like, october, but whatever. Also can we still submit things? I have writing that I'd like to send you.

Caroline said...

I sent you an email about the magazine way back in November and I still have not heard back about it. Maybe mine got overlooked or sent to spam idk? :(

-caroline

Tavi said...

Mickey - We're now done with submissions, but thanks for yer interest.

Caroline - I searched your name in the inbox, we replied but so many got Mail Delivery Subsystem whatever error replies, and unfortunately after that there's not much we can do.

Angie said...

I sooo want to go too but I don't know if we have those things in the Netherlands =/ on another note your hair looks good!

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

Anywaays, sounds like you had fun and I'm glad for you. I am also very excited for this magazine! I hope it goes well for everyone involved.

Flow Disruption said...

Despite all your super serious stereotypes, this only upped your cool. ;) If I were out at midnight watchin' Rocky Horror all dressed up, I'd be much less of a, uh ... homebody. ;) Love the crown!

firefly said...

Yay! I'm looking forward to your project with Jane!

Don't feel bad about not having seen it sooner. It took me 18 years for a good friend to finally notice that I was RHPS deprived.

Mina Jade said...

This is fine. I am sure I would dress up as a witch...
AS for the site, good luck - it will be great. I am happy for you. I was not selected, I do know my English is still imperfect, perhaps it always will be. And I think I am a tad TOO peculiar for a teen magazine...

Alienor said...

hey tavi !
so about your magazine : where is it going to come out ? or is it only sent to the people that got a submission ?
cause i guess France is gonna be deprived of your awesome project. :D
hope you'll post pictures of it !

TheBaldSpot said...

Love the Music Box! Almost love Rocky Horror just as much. You should check out The Room showing they usually have at midnight. It's so bad, it's good!

cancercowboy said...

You know, I still haven't seen Rocky Horror on the big screen. My friends have gone plenty of times and I'm always like "I'll go with you next time!" but then...its so late? And I like to sleep?

I read your interview on Refinery29 about slutwalk, and I'm so proud of you!!! I don't know if I ever say that enough. I wish there were people around as I read it so I could point to the screen and say "that's my internet friend!!"

Love the QUIRKY vibes. I've been wishing with all my heart for years that my city would have Rocky Horror Show performances, but I've had zero luck. Very excited to hear about the magazine (another long-time wish of mine) !
