I've made it into the Toronto Burlesque Festival!
I did a burlesquey booyaka when I heard the news. It's a combination of a booty-dance (with a lot of booty), some shimmies, someone got flashed, and a bit of glitter was thrown in (for kicks).
So yes, all those pins and needles I was waiting on before have now turned to butterflies, and have localized in my stomach, doing the salsa. My metaphors, I mix them in your general direction.
This, of course, means rehearsing and fretting for a bit, but that's okay! I have made sure to keep myself uber-booked so that I don't have time to worry, just DO.
Yeah, this seems to be an ongoing thing with me.
Some good news? My festival participation means I've been given the sparkley boot from Strip Search! I'll be lending a hand backstage for the event anyway! They can't get rid of me that easy!*
Even though I'm not in Strip Search, I urge you all to go anyway. There will be some of the best new talent in Toronto. You should go and buy us girls some drinks.
See? It's sexy. You need to be there. Especially if you missed last weeks' Dance Dance Evolution fundraiser! I'm hoping to locate some pictures soon, because this event was fantastic. Some of burlesque best established performers showed how you Get It Done, no holds barred. Yours truly chilled at the Wheel of Peel with some sassy other ladies, including Dolly Berlin. We ate bananas and gave out boobie prizes like there was no tomorrow!
Check back for some sure-to-be hilarious photos from the event! Of course, there's always the chance that I could post something related to one of the Super Sekrit Projects I'm working on but...naw, not likely.
