Boobies is such a negative term. I personally vote for the use of yaybies instead.

I will also accept wooters as a replacement for hooters.

I am not known amongst my circle of burlesque/stage performers for having easily transportable, pack-and-go numbers. Props, massive costumes, elaborate makeup or complicated wigs, and numbers with multiple people have all been things I’ve been responsible for. In recent memory my numbers include:

-Multiple props including a soul-capturing mask and an additional person trained in number-specific choreography
-A tear-away bathrobe/straight jacket concealing a gown underneath, multiple wigs worn at the same time, two dancers coordinated with a costume change so they could come back in doctors coats and suction-mark ‘scars’
-A cart with scientific mixing equipment on it and numerous colored liquids (this was later ‘downgraded’ to a train case filled with a cocktail shaker and various glowing liquor bottles)
-A mannequin form that was enthusiastically stabbed and strangled

The last show we did I challenged myself to have no external props and a costume that could be pack-and-go. I succeeded and it was probably my favorite number to date because I could still bust it out and do it at pretty much any time.

This show however

-Multiple food props
-Fake Blood
-additional person with multiple responsibilities/acting duties
-Dangerous shoes
-Giant Iron Throne replica

I’m regressing into becoming the burlesque Gallagher again. Slippery slope covered in raspberry pie filling and impractical foot wear.

Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.” Things I Wish My Mother Had Taught Me | d.a.s (via backshelfpoet)
