Okburlesccapadespinkay, 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!

Happy New Year!


Okay, it isn’t QUITE the new year yet and we get that, but we are so excited to announce our partnership with Joe’s Grotto that we about to burst.

Starting in January of 2014, BurlEscapades will be producing and performing quarterly at Joe’s Grotto.  Expect all sorts of tricks up our sleeves including swag bags for our V.I.P’s, photobooths, salty treats and sweets, and entertainment that is just not our saucy bumping and grinding!

Here’s a little sneak peek of what is in store for you:

January 25th – “Nerdlesque” – Joe’s Grotto – From comic book heroes and villains to cult classics. Burly versions of geekdom!
March 22nd – “Cinelesque” – Joe’s Grotto – You loved it in 2013 and it’s back! Cinema style burlesque complete with fresh popcorn.
July 5th – “Merica” – Joe’s Grotto – It’s July 5th and the day before is slightly important to some independent folks. Get it?
November 1st – “Fright Night” – Joe’s Grotto – The Day of the Dead. From urban legends to the monster in the closet, bring a friend to hold your hand through this one.

Tickets for the first show will be opening soon, so keep your eye out!

Secrets, Lace and the Big Easy

Amazing news, sweethearts and sweet tarts!  Our beloved Mercy Beaucoup has been asked to grace New Orleans as a stage kitten for the “Bad Girls of Burlesque” and “Queen of Burlesque” shows during the New Orleans Burlesque Festival!

For those of you who are not intimately familiar with language ala burlesque: a stage kitten is a wildly attractive, mischievous yet helpful creature that assists the performing artists between acts from prop adjustments to rescuing costumes gone wild.  (Let me just say that in general, it involves quite a bit of a bending over to the audience while dressed in daringly scandalous costumes of their own!)

The festival is a huge national competition for burlesque artists across the world and is sponsored by the couture lingerie and stocking designer Secrets in Lace.  What that means, my dapper doves, is our beloved Mercy may well end up modeling a few of these pieces and be certain we will let you know if we get a sneak peek of any of her prints, just to tease you!

In the meanwhile, I’ve snatched a picture of her in honor of New Orleans Mardi Gras en masked and green!  I am sure if you are sweet there will be more tantalizing ones to come in September.

Love and pinches,

~ Sable
P.S.  New Orleans in September is something I never miss.  So expect posts to come of the adventures of Mercy & Sable vs. Nola to come!
