Looking back on “Burlesque”


“Welcome to Burlesque…”

It took me a bit longer than i expected, but here’s finally a tiny little impression of “Burlesque” fashion show organized by Alix Abruzzo from Runway Cafe and Nino Heartsdale of House of Heartsdale. The show was created as a fusion of cabaret and fashion show, with live DJ and the models performing famous songs from movies such as Burlesque, Cabaret, Moulin Rouge and Sweet Charity. A special thanks at this point to the girls of “Team Europe” (picture above) who presented my costumes on stage in such a gorgeous way <3 You were doing such a great job! (And boy.. after seeing that rehearsal schedule, I will never look at SL modeling the same way before! ;D)

This has been the very first “fashion show” I joined with !dM deviousMind and wow, what a great premiere ;D – not only did our two lovely organizer ladies pick unknowingly the show dates right around my toons rezz day, they created a show and ambience that was just mindblowing. A special thanks at this point to Toxic Darkmatter for the amazing build the event was hosted in, and Tristan for the fun and entertaining DJing and live commentary the on-goings on stage.  (I admit, the DJing blew me away most of the whole event, cause I didn’t expect it!!)


The show included a total of 6 designers, each set dedicated to its own song. Blacklace for “Moulin Rouge”, !dm deviousMind performing to “Good Girl”, Hugo’s Design meeting Madonna’s “Hanky Panky”, INSOLENCE with classic cabaret number “Mein Herr”, Lady Thera met a “Big Spender” and Mon Cheri greeted with a smokey “Welcome to Burlesque” – each with their own custom built set designs, choreography, and special effects.

And I really can’t pass on sharing this shot with you which shows the amazing styling mix Nino created with parts of different costumes of mine – I’m totally in awe and will have to make sure to save a copy of that combination somewhere in my outfits as well ;D Seen in the picture are pieces of !dM “Black Lenore”, !dM “Showtime” Black Peacock, and even a tiny bit of (*chanimations’ photoset “VanityDeluxe” can be found in the mix – and trust me, I inspected her well – she definitely used some pieces in a rather unconventional manner (*dies laughing*) but the final look – oh my!
