I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, “Well someone had to do it, right?”
And this someone is painter and sculptor Jessine Hein. We’ve blogged about Hein’s work here before when she created dentures of David Bowie’s old teeth before he had them “fixed” with porcelain veneers.
This time around it’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘s own Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s pearly whites. They’re made of denture acrylics, plaster and acrylic paint.
When I think of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I think of Tim Curry’s big crooked smile. Dr. Frank-N-Furter was a character on the forefront of expressing oneself honestly and unapologetically. And his wonky teeth were not standing in the way of his outrageous glamor. Instead they were highlighting his shimmering personality and were part of his charm. It’s a beautiful example of a complimentary imperfection.
Some time ago Curry got his teeth “fixed.” That inspired me to revive the original oral pearls of the one and only “sweet transvestite” in celebration of things that don’t need a remake.
