Your guide to the 'Rocky Horror' Costume Contest 🎬💋🏰

Creatures of the night, we are nearing our interactive ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ screening and costume contest and here is what you need to know⚡️

What better way to get ready than with a little support from the freak show characters of Transylvania, anyway?

Whether you are a RHPS virgin or cult follower, we’ve got some tips to make your experience all things weird and funky:

⚡️Channel your inner mad scientist as Dr. Frank-N-Furter with corsets, fishnets, glitter, and a splash of drama. Think smoky eyes, stilettos, and SASS!

⚡️Stroll in as the innocent couple, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss. Choose between their classic attire or sizzling get up. It’s sweet and preppy vs. sultry charm. Your call, baby!

⚡️Take the form of the castle crew with a mysterious and chill get up.

⚡️Dress as Riff Raff with his torn threads, pale makeup, and that hunchback swag.

⚡️Or come as Magenta, the French maid gone wild with fishnets, a maid’s getup, and a cheeky grin.

⚡️For all you rebels out there, pull out your leather jacket, wild hair, and rock-n-roll flair as Eddie with a devil-may-care vibe.

⚡️You might opt for Columbia, the glitter goddess with a tap-dancing soul adorned in sequins, sparkle, and a top hat for that extra oomph.

⚡️Of course, there is the Criminologist who narrates with a scholarly twist. Suit up, tie it tight, and maybe carry a mysterious pipe to tie it all together.

⚡️Don’t forget about the other classic characters like Rocky Horror, the glam god with gold shorts and muscles to boot!

⚡️If you don’t want to dress up as a specific character, dazzle yourself up as a party-goer instead! Simply pair a blazer and slacks with any silly party favors you might have like party hats, glitter, or shades.

Whatever you decide to wear, whoever you decide to channel (as long as it isn’t a striped shirt–IYKYK) you are in for a groovy and wild ride.

So, let loose, get funky, and try your luck as one freaky winner will win 2 tickets to the upcoming two-day Winterdelic Fest at The Factory, St. Pete.

Winner will be announced the at the end of the screening.

Mother: The Job – Building Human Capital, Building Human Beings is a multi-media exhibit, quite likely the first of its kind that includes a short black and white film of mother’s hands at task. Black and white photos of the sixteen main jobs mothers perform, writings by mothers and children, and other integrated art forms. These combine to portray the day-to-day life of a mother and her intricate relationship with her child. By recognizing the passion, intelligence and intuition that goes into Mothering, the world’s most important job, we exalt nurturing and care giving to an art form. That art form gives way to a final understanding of the highly evolved skill set needed to ultimately raise a child to maturity – physically, mentally and emotionally- prepared to enter into society as a productive worker and citizen. The absurd question, “What did you do all day?” becomes the mascot question for today’s revolution – the unfinished business of balancing the playing field for all “working” mothers and the economics of doing it.

The results are in and if… 📊

64% associate peace with a spiritual awakening

Just stroll on down to The Factory and let the works if .art’s solo exhibition steer you to awakening’s bliss during his opening gallery night from 5-9 pm here during on Nov 11.

Truth is none of us know where we are going and there is something deeply rewarding about life’s brutal honesty.

“I have to laugh when I think about what I had to navigate in order to reach this point in a long cherished career.

I had doubts, at first, about where my dream would take me, but I never gave in. This means a tremendous amount to me.”

—John Monteiro

Quick question...

It’s only fitting St. Pete’s secret is coming out of the wood work.

With some of our favorites highlighted like the Dali Museum and our featured tenant Fairgrounds St. Pete, we champion the arts as being the catalyst in spreading the word about our vibrant and beloved city.

As the word spreads, will St. Pete continue as a beloved secret and hidden gem?

Or will it prove to become the new Austin?

Quirky art, cool neighborhood gems, and white sand beaches await in this Florida town.

Have you met our new artist, ?

Sustainable Collabs with Strangers—

You may already be familiar with Luke as his works have been presented at staples like The Morean, MIZE, Five Deuces, Studio620, to name a few, and now he is setting roots here at his studio space at The Factory.

Having moved from Indiana to Florida in 2010, Luke’s artistry is just one of his greatest offerings to the local community. He has curated events, markets, displays, and shows for the Floridan Social theatre, including an Andy Warhol Birthday Bash this year.

His expansiveness in taste and in style can be felt in his most popular practice dubbed, “Collaborations with Strangers” where he sources thrifted paintings to repurpose.

“I never know the originator, but respect them as a contributor to the current piece I am making.” —Luke

The mechanism he finds most compelling about this approach is that the practice can be experienced as a way to both up-cycle while destroying the work simultaneously.

Luke is a force to be reckoned with and if you’re still reading, take it a sign to stop in and say hello.
