costumes

The Original London production used "Found" items to produce the costumes. Frank's corset originally coming from Lyndsey Kemp's The Maids (turned around backwards and later decorated). Future productions used manufactured costumes based on the originals. Sue came to Rocky Horror after Jim Sharman saw Lindsay Kemp's production, starring Tim Curry in October 1971. Tim wore the same corset in The Maids, 2 years before he would wear it again as Frank.
