Okay, well you can’t actually kiss this new perfectly luscious color by Dollipop Cosmetics as it’s made for your eyes not your lips, but we want to!
BurlEscapades is blushing with excitement at the custom made mineral shadow inspired by our very own troupe color: BurlEscapades Pink!
This beauty will be making her exclusive debut on February 6th at our annual Nerdlesque revue at Joe’s Grotto!
The gorgeous geeky girls and gents of Arizona burlesque will be performing on stage as all your favorite pop culture icons from super heros and villains, to cult classics to video game stars.
While seated tickets are long gone, you can still get your general admission tickets HERE to see this once-a-year sell-out show if you hurry.
And you’ll want to hop over quick to the Dollipop vendor table as there will only be a limited amount of this custom color available at the show until the next run! Plus! Other geeky inspired colors such as the buttery-gold “As You Wish”, scarlet-as-his-heart “Stark” and prettiest-purple “Oh My Glob”.
Go take a peek at the Dollipop site for all their brilliant colors and just for our Bcapades fans use the code “Burly10” to get 10% off your order!
Dollipop Cosmetics is local to Phoenix owned by twin sisters Jennifer and Liz. The two delightful divas use only FDA approved ingredients that are not only beautifully vivid but safe and healthy for your skin. Dollipop even has a vegan line of colors that are crafted entirely separate from the main cosmetic line!
My oh my, we can hardly breath for our fluttering hearts and lashes we are so excited. Before we burst we’ll just let out the news:
The renown Texas burlesque troupe the Jigglewatts are coming to visit their Western cousins BurlEscapades for a showdown at Joe’s Grotto Wednesday, August 6th.
Featuring co~Founders of the Jigglewatts: Coco Lectric, the raven-haired beauty declared Queen in both New Orleans and Las Vegas festivals, and “the poised porcelain princess of tease,” pin-up model and dancer Ruby Joule, the gem you’d love to polish!
Also featured from Jigglewatts: the platinum blonde stunner known as “Texas’ Very Own Gold Rush” Goldie Candela, the gorgeous songstress and dancer Jolie Goodnight, the exotic Layna D’Luna, and last but not least the lovely Something Blue.
This is a one night, one time only South meets West show that you won’t want to miss as BurlEscapades joins the stage with classic favourites as well as new acts never performed on this stage.
And what is a burlesque show without comedy? Joining the dazzling dames and gallivanting gents on-stage will be Jade Esteban Estrada, “America’s Prince of Pride”: performer and comedian extraordinaire.
We do hope you all will come and see us not just SOME time, but 7:30 sharp on August 6th. Of course, if you want to see all the fun up close and personal, you better get your front row tickets quick: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/770531.
Come dressed with a smile, and if you don’t, we can guarantee that as we undress our own Southern hospitality on stage you will at least leave with one…
The cat has been out of the bag for a little while now that the extraordinary Kara La Fleur accepted a marvelous opportunity in San Fran. While we miss her terribly here, you lucky Californians now get to see her tease and toy her fabulous feathers and self across the stage!
The first of many shows will be at the ever tantalizing Hubba Hubba Revue on Monday, January 28th at the Uptown Club. If I were *you* I’d go and see her before we steal her back to Phoenix. Oh, and need I mention that there will be a bevy of other beauties to enjoy for the evening?
Color me envious.
Love and pinches,
On January 19th, we will be saying farewell to Monstserland Bar & Grill at our monthly Thriller show.
While Monsterland was only “home” to BurlEscapades for the past few months we loved performing there both as burlesque artists, gogo dancers, and of course Visa loved DJ’ing there as DJ Con.
This unique club was a full service restaurant with shocking tasty eats and treats during the day, and a dark and creepy club at night decorated as a Haunted House 365 days a year.
Unfortunately, despite some major successes in the early Fall the owner is unable to keep the doors open at this time and is opting to either sell the club or close the doors permanently. Sadly, it is looking like it will be the first option so we have to say thank you to all the folks we loved and adored there from bar staff to hosts to managers and of course the extra beloved security guys!
If you live in the Phoenix metro area, you should most definitely join us for a celebration like the true end of the world next weekend with DJ Con and his gogo’s, special guest artists, and of course BurlEscapades dancing and teasing!
Much love to you Monsterland. We will miss you!
So, I am sure you all remember back in the summer when I said we were shooting a fabulous music video with Voodoo Swing? Well, don’t hold your breath a second longer as it is here!
Our lovely Kara is the starlet of the short film, and if you keep your eyes wide you’ll see myself and Mia prancing around in the background as well (or even driving in my case). You’d never know we nearly had our skirts up over our heads that day we were sweltering in the heat so! But being the consummate professionals we didn’t even show a ~bead~ of sweat, ahem.
Do show some love to the swing daddies themselves and check out this video!
Love and pinches,
