Um, November.. you were fucking awesome! Not only are you my birthday month, but I also got to be a part of 8 shows, only overlapping one act (in addition to working full-time). May be my new record?
Last night’s affair was one to remember: the much-buzzed-about Evil League of Sexy: A Villains-Themed Burlesque Show. Wish I’d gotten some more candids but my camera is kinda junk and can’t capture all that fast ish. Velvet Valhalla (1/2 of the hosting team) donned a Pizzaz (Jem nemesis) costume for the show, on point with the heels n all. I’m sad he quit Rocky.
Opening the show is my favourite spot. Although sometimes it’s tricky to be the warm-up, I really enjoy getting the anticipation over with (and it means I get to see most of the show too!). A lady named Nicole K photo-ed the show, so thank you Nicole!
I danced to Suede’s Animal Nitrate, so my performance is dedicated partly to you Brett Anderson. HUBBA!
The cast of the show was amazing, and I think spanned a good scale between fluffy cartoon villains to nerdy to horror. There was Predator boylesque by Dr. Tease (I didn’t snap a photo but I’m sure there’s an epic one out there somewhere) and Hannibalesque by show organizer Betty Quirk (of Betty Monroe Designs).
The crowd went nuts for a sparkly sequinned Freddy (Barely Legal Leelando), danced magic for a big-bulged Jareth (Sky Blew) and were delighted by Hexidecimal (Ruby Pixel) revealing her many faces, along with her glittering red flesh.
The cast switches up each time but organizers (the aforementioned Betty & Leelando in addition to Sevvy Skellington) have already determined the next theme: Simpsons! Wheeeeeee!
If you haven’t yet made it to an Underground Peepshow, don’t make the same mistake a 4th time. Keep up to date with their twitter or tumblr, and mark Smarch 10th down in your planners!
