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…
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!
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!
So if you been paying attention you know that we will be at Monsterland again this Saturday for the Thriller event Visa hosts, but this time just a little teaser show to wet your appetite. If you want more of those then you better come see us and let us know!
The ~much~ bigger news is that we want to officially announce that we have welcomed Kenya Swallow as our newest member in BurlEscapades. Do stop in on her Bio and take a gander or even better come see her do her thing at Monsterland this Saturday!
P.S. Oh, why not? Here is a sneak peek…
Well my devious ducklings, I have been downright neglectful as of late and so aim to remedy that tout suite! I do still owe a rendition of Mercy and Sable take on New Orleans, but feel I am so overdue at this point I’d rather just refer you to the lovely write-up Mercy has already provided Here!
October brought our (now) annual mischief with Romantasy Cabaret and as usual we had a brilliant time being a cast of characters for the Daringly Scary~Sexy show. From the Bride of Frankenstein to a Black Swan ballerina to a Saucy Nurse.
However, our darling Vis~a~Vee also launched out as The Conductor returning to his musical roots as a DJ at Monsterland for a new event titled “Thriller”. With an 80’s themed dance extravaganza, Mia & I joined in the fun go-go’ing and as I am sure you can see above we had an absolutely wonderful time (as did the audience!)
Missed the show? Well, I have excellent news for you! Thriller will be returning monthly every third Saturday at Monsterland and THIS Saturday (11/17) is an extra special edition as BurlEscapades and Vavavoom (along with special guests!) will be performing a burlesque set to launch the evening.
I highly advise you not to miss out on any of the Thriller evenings, but most especially this one!
Love and pinches,
P.S. We will soon have an enticing little announcement for you that if you are clever you might see hints of already! Come to the show Saturday and you might get a sneak peek.
