I had the best time in Melbourne at the Australian Burlesque Festival, taking part in the Baby Bombshells show and being a whoopin' and hollerin' audience member at Nouvelle Royale & The Big Tease. So incredibly inspiring, I can't wait for next year!
I had an amazing night getting my grrrrr on as Teenwolf at Baby Bombshells, I got to share a stage with a whole bunch of wonderful Aussie ladies and even ended up being one of the runners up.
Amazed and awed by the talent of these performers and can't wait to see them perform again, hopefully sometime soon.
This was my favourite judge's comment from Baby Bombshells on my Teenwolf act:
"Loved it; very funny, a bit weird but that's what you wanted, right?" - Cassandra Jane
This Saturday 11 May I'll be howlin' for you at 1885 Britomart! It's Lady Luck burlesque night and I'll be performing alongside the divine Miss La Vida and saucy minx Cherry Bombshell. So you know there's gonna be so much hotness it'll melt your face off.
$10 on the door, starts 10pm.
The countdown is on!!! I've been lucky enough to be accepted into the Baby Bombshells (Newcomers) show in the Australian Burlesque Festival. So in June I'll be packing up my costume for my favourite act and will be winging my way to Melbourne. I am already so freakin' excited!!! So for the next month, in between shows, I'll be honing my routine and glueing rhinestones to everything I can. I can't wait to check out the Melbourne scene and see some amazing international performers, I've already got my tickets to The Big Tease and Nouvelle Royale! There's a small posse of NZ performers crossing the ditch to perform, looking forward to see them all shine in Australia. Melbourne friends, see you all soon! xA
It was a spectacular night at Miss Burlesque 2013 in the town hall concert chamber, Auckland! All the performances were of such a high standard and it was a pleasure to perform alongside such a wonderful bunch of guys and gals. Congratulations to Mo-Cachino and MisRed who took out the titles! Some amazing and inspiring performances took place, and it was a treat to share a (huge by burlesque standards) stage with all of the gorgeous creatures who took part. Can I say what a delight it was to see the Boylesquers taking part as well? Ima gonna say it - it was awesome! As a bonus I was lucky enough to take out the Sponsor Choice award with my Teenwolf act. Awoooooooo! I am such a happy lil' wolfling.
It's just over one week to Miss Burlesque New Zealand! I'm a contestant this year so this week I shall be in a whirlwind of practice and final costume tweaks. Come on down to the gorgeous Concert Chamber at Auckland Town Hall Saturday 13 April to have myself and a bevvy of other smoking hot performers entertain and delight you. There will be fantastic local and international performers as well as the competitors, and at the end of the night they'll be crowning Miss & Mr Burlesque New Zealand! I have a very exciting act prepared, I can't wait! See you there! x Ava
Fantastic show! The Winchester in Newton reached full capacity on Saturday with one of the liveliest crowds I've had the pleasure of performing for. The show that packed out the Winchester was Puttin' on The Britz, presented by the Rock n Roll Circus. There were so many wonderful performances by gorgeous performers including Trixi Tassels, Miss Tittle Tattle, Penny Pins, Trixxie Vixen, Miss Girdle Buster, Sugar Spanx (the artful producer also), Dolly Destory and myself. It was such a treat to see Londoner Trixi Tassels perform, her act to Fever was so engaging and polished, it set a standard to aspire to. I also have a burning desire to learn to fire twirl... watch out people. I debuted two new acts, Wuthering Heights and Anarchy in the UK. Wuthering Heights featured my first ever fan dance in public and has fast become one of my favourite acts. Sophie Divet drew me as part of a live art performance, a photo of her amazing work is below. Can't wait for the Rock n Roll Circus to Roll into town again!
Happy New Year! I've already got a handful of shows lined up for this year, including some veeeery exciting news, but I'm sworn to secrecy for most of them! One show I can tell you about though is the International Tattoo and Art Expo in Glamilton on February 23 & 24. I'll be performing a different routine on each day, including at least one new routine! http://www.tattooart.co.nz
For now I'm costume making and choreographing new treats to delight you with in this new and exciting year! xA
