Perth's very own pinup queen, burlesque artist, producer, & blogger.
Good morning lovelies!
What a crazy busy week! Lady Velvet Cabaret my amazing troupe have just completed our opening weekend at Perth Fringe Festival 2013 with our brand new show Club Velvet! Club Velvet plays host to nights of raucous laughter, saucy entertainment, and the occasional bar-room brawl. Home to cabaret singers, burlesque artists, contortionists and circus performers, dancers and musicians, Club Velvet needs you to help unravel its saucy secrets and devious lies – help us find out which dazzling diva, down-and-out actor, or other Club Velvet regular is responsible for a heinous crime.
Our first three shows have been an incredible experience to be part of, and I’d just like to thank our audience for screaming the house down each night! If you enjoyed our show and think we’re deserving of taking out the title of People’s Choice Award you can vote for our show click here! Last year our Lucha Royale show won this fabulous honour! If you haven’t caught our show yet we still have 8 shows remaining, for more information and to book tickets head to Fringe World’s website!
Amongst a whole heap of other exciting projects, Miss Burlesque and Miss Pinup preparation I also had the amazing honour of taking part in a beginner’s burlesque workshop with the international queen of tease Miss Polly Rae. It was a tremendously inspiring workshop, and truly interesting to learn different techniques from another industry professional, you’re never too good to go back to the basic! Not only is she a great performer, but also a great teacher, for the most part a lot of the girls in the class where trying out burlesque for first time, it was amazing the transformation that happened in a 2 hours, many entered as shy violets, and left as confident empowered women!
I also thought I’d share that today I received my copy of The Cat’s Meow Magazine’s January 2013 pinup edition! In which I have a two page spread with a little about me, and photos taken by the wonderful Luke Milton! To get your copy today, head to The Cat’s Meow Website!
PS. Don’t forget there are only 11 days until the Miss Pinup 2013 WA State final, last year I took out the title of Miss Perfect Pinup WA, and I’m now competing under the new category of Miss Neo Pinup with three other stunning pinups! Be sure to get your tickets before the show sells out!
More updates coming soon!
