On June 16th, I was part of a burlesque performance art group which marched in the Coney Island Mermaid Parade. The mermaid parade was created by Dick Zigun and organized each year in Brookyn by Bambi The Mermaid and many other volunteers. I dressed as a sea creature. Also marching in the group was Aphrodite Rose, Galatea Stone, Sweet N Low, Anna Shevitz, Cypress Thrills and others.
I performed in Broadway Brassy’s Temple Of The Virgins show at La Flaca on November 27th, 2017. I did a redesigned version of my Purple Fantasy act.
This show featured four veteran performers who were the “sacrificers”: Aphrodite Rose, Tiger Bay, Aphrodite Rose, and Lillian Bustle. Two of us, Rara Darling and I, were the virgins. The host was Broadway Brassy. The stage kitten was Trinity Starlight.
My second public burlesque performance was on the Coney Island U.S.A. stage in the 14th Annual Follies Fromage Show on August 24th, 2017. I debuted my Cheese Act.
This show was the culmination of a six week intensive masterclass taught by Jo Weldon, Dirty Martini, Fem Appeal, Tigger!, Gal Friday, Tiger Bay, and Fancy Feast.
The show was hosted by Jo Weldon. Fellow performers from the 2017 master class included: Angelica Lavalier, Chinny Cherry, Dixie Disaster, Cecily Starr, and more. Aphrodite Rose, a 2016 masterclass alumni, guest starred and our stage kitten was Bad News Baby.
After the show, we all had a Teaser Wine Bath which is a Burlesque At The Beach tradition inspired by the burlesque legend Tirsa.
