Charming Underclothes is a movie recreation performance group that brings films to life! Shadowcasting, as it’s called, is a midnight movie phenomenon that started with The Rocky Horror Picture Show. We began conquering castles with our RHPS debut on February 26, 2016, in Roanoke, VA. Since then, we have become a traveling cast that expands our stage to Lynchburg and Charlottesville, and we also do conventions and special events throughout the year. During our runtime, we have expanded our celluloid dreams to other movies, such as The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and Clue. Every show we do is in costume, with props, and is designed to give the viewers a very memorable experience with pre-show games and audience interactions.
The following members of Charming Underclothes will also be programming guests this year:
Brad’s Pants: I play the role of Rocky and Stripping Crim for Charming Underclothes and performed Trixie, Crim, and Dr. Scott since 2011 in Washington, DC before moving to Roanoke in 2015. I am also registration and membership for Mysticon. I am into tabletop gaming and WOW. While not performing I am in school, reading, or watching tv.
Eddie’s Teddy has played the Criminologist with Charming Underclothes and also Dr. Scott and Eddie with the Sonic Transducers in Washington, DC. He met his fiance during a sword fight. An avid fan of Dungeons and Dragons, he hopes to publish an adventure he’s written some day.
Ginger Snaps has played Columbia and Janet in Charming Underclothes since 2016, as well as Miss Scarlet and Betty Armstrong (for Clue and The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, respectively). When not performing, she likes to sing, play games (both video games and tabletop), and discuss feminism in media and why Joss Whedon is not a feminist icon.
Mourning Star started out as a security guard in 2016 where he met his wife-to-be. He then quickly moved into the role of Rocky and then was thrown into the role of Brad. He then moved up in the ranks to become a Co-Director and one of the Faces of Cast on Facebook. When not performing he is collecting Pops and playing WoW.
O. Hai is a pop culture fan who has been doing the time warp, alone in his basement, for years. Now he teaches it as Crim in Charming Underclothes.
Pattycakes: It was great when it all began… in 2005, being introduced to Rocky Horror (and thrown on stage as Magenta) by the Cepheid Variable cast at Texas A&M University as a not-so-innocent freshman. Since then I have spent my years time warping with Los Bastardos of Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, contemplating the Tolls of Madness in Blacksburg, VA, and acting as Co-Director of the Charming Underclothes based in Roanoke, VA. When not indulging in the sins of the flesh, I am a book devourer, mountain climber, strategic gamer, and avid pet snuggler.
Syrinx first took the stage in 2005, when he joined The Fishnet Mafia, a Rocky Horror Picture Show shadowcast in Columbus, OH. He started out as The Criminologist and then a year later, took on the role of Riff Raff. In 2009, he also joined the on-air personalities of Nyte’s Realm Radio, an internet radio station based in Cleveland. It was on here that Syrinx got to debut his weekly DJ mixshow and became a co-host for the established variety talk-show. He also went on to create his own show, The Geeks Come Out At Night, which was a weekly fandom-based talk show that had various musicians, authors, and film stars as live guests. In 2010, he then moved over to Sobel Nation Radio (based out of New York) and his mixshows joined the weekly timeslots alongside DJs From Mars, Ford, Jerome Farley, and more. Syrinx then moved to Roanoke, VA, in 2011 and in 2012 he joined the volunteers to help run MystiCon. Soon after, he created the Music Department for the convention and has been booking bands for it since 2013. In 2015, another dream came true when he founded and directed his own Rocky Horror cast, Charming Underclothes (and continues to play Riff Raff while pursuing other roles). Since then, they became the first cast to ever perform The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra (Syrinx played Dr. Roger Fleming) and they’ve also performed Clue (Mr. Green). Syrinx is still a DJ and remixer but is now signed to Tigersquawk Records. He is one of the live members for The Gothsicles and creates the beats and samples for Khionik, a group he formed with Brian Graupner (darkNES) in 2014. And he has made the transition from stage to screen in a couple roles for Darkstone Entertainment. Syrinx is “The Peruser” in the upcoming 7th Guest: The Series and is one the Varients in the movie Rifters, also due out soon. September 2018 marks his first run as Entertainment Director for RavenCon.
