Here we are, the final installment of my coverage of the Teaser Party of the 10th Annual New York Burlesque Festival! I took so many pictures and videos that I did not want to pollute an entire post with it and cause it to take forever for you to see. So let’s get started!
This next girl had an awesome Theda Bara type costume – it was cool and spooky at the same time.
Here is the video of her performance…
This next girl had an ode to her home country, France…
This next girl had a very cool gothic bird type dance. Her performance is below!
This next girl – she had quite the umm, rare talent for tassels. You’ll see below!
See! And she made those things twirl in opposite directions, and could make them stop on the drop of a dime and just make one twirl. Now that’s talent! LOL.
This next girl is straight out of Milan, and as a result had a totally Italian-themed performance.
This next performer is a man – yes, guys can be burlesque performers! They call it “boy-lesque” 🙂 He had quite a funny skit, and definitely was extreme! I think the men have to work a little harder than the women in this area for attention and accolades. He did well, and immediately upon seeing him I saw an Errol Flynn look to him.
This next performer had a very unique mermaid inspired performance. Towards the end she was wearing a shell-type undergarment, and as you can tell it opened right up to strings of pearls! Definitely a way to end the night!
All in all, it was a fabulous night. Despite my foot killing me, my back hurting, and being super tired, I just couldn’t leave until it was all over. I left feeling inspired and feeling proud of my body and that – hey – maybe it ain’t that bad. After every burlesque show I feel this way! These ladies are amazing for doing what they do and showing us gals that we need to be proud of what we have, no matter what!
