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…
If you have not heard of the post-apocalyptic awesomeness that is the Strand here in the Valley then we will help you lift that rock you’ve been under! The Strand cannot be boxed into one unique genre, but is a blend of industrial dance, EBM, electro-industrial, and industrial rock music. Arizona is lucky enough to host this band and have them back in Phoenix from their tour.
And even MORE lucky, are you gents and dames who will be attending the Burlescapades Nerdlesque show on January 25th at Joe’s Grotto as not only will you be tantalized by the wiles of our burlesque dances, and entertained by the wit of our variety acts, but you get to see the Strand live at the after-party!
Oh, and we have one last little surprise for you Strand fans: not only dangerously attractive, and talented, but also generous – the Strand will be gifting a CD to all guests that attend our little soiree that evening.
On a personal note, I can say that seeing the Strand live is a visual and auditory fun-house ride I would never miss.
If you are a clever devil, you’ll get your tickets now before they disappear so you have a good view for all of the goodies we have in store for you.
Ta for now!
Well, feast your eyes on the first! BurlEscapades is honored and ecstatic to announce that we will be featuring Coco Lectric at the January 25th Nerdlesque show!
Coco was crowned the 2010 New Orleans Burlesque Queen for a reason and is going to demonstrate her royal majesty geek-style for you lucky Phoenicians.
We’d HIGHLY recommend you keep an eye out on our FB event page for BurlEscapades Nerdlesque for ticket sales opening as this one is going to sell out quick!
This Saturday at Joe’s Grotto in Phoenix, Burlescapades will be hosting a delightful event which is bringing together Hollywood and burlesque glamour into one fabulous package! Cult classics, Disney Princesses, Horror villains, Pulp Drama and Musicals will all meet on stage in this cinema inspired burlesque show: Cinelesque!
Patrons will be treated to freshly made, hot buttered popcorn and sweet treats served up by our concession boys and girls.
Come dressed to the nines in your glitzy garments or dress down in your tattered rags in homage to your favorite flick! Either way we will have paparazzi on hand to capture your look.
Oh, and if you are good you might get to see Mia WITHOUT these popcorn cartons!
See you Saturday,
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!
