For My Next Trick...

Getting all excited for my next performance which will be Gully Sutherland's Emporium of Extraordinary Entertainment - Victorian Winter Wonderland Variety Performance. I will be performing the act I last blogged and a brand spanking new act called 'Winter Wonderland' which I recorded my own version of the song for, with the help of Mr Mark Pinder who also took me some festive piccies. It was really nice to do something different like that, I haven't sang in years and it used to be a really good way for me to get my 'Meh' out, I am always pottering round my kitchen and singing my ass off.

I am a little bit concerned about my costume not arriving in time for this performance on the 29th, I am expecting some flipping amazing hot pants from the states and they are probably not going to get here *sad face*. It should be a great night with a mixture of things, not just burlesque if you are able to and want to have a warm up for New Years, you should come along! I am also excited because a lot of the people performing and attending are some of the most amazing friends that I have made in 2010, I am lucky to have them in my life!

Had a couple of burlesque bookings and photographers say they want to work with me! Actually doing a shoot on Christmas Eve and then the day after Boxing Day. I am also planning one amazing new geek based act which I am weeing myself with excitement about, going to take a while to sort/build costume and props. Mostly this month I am looking forward to seeing my boyfriend again, it already feels like ages and its only been like 10 days

Talk About A Bird Learning How To Fly

Feels like a million years since I last blogged. This blog is mostly about my performance on Saturday the 11th of December in Darlington at a 1940's/Swing themed night called Candlelit Cabaret in aid of Help for Heroes.

It was just a generally lovely evening, I met some amazing talented people the atmosphere was so nice and I felt welcome, everyone made an effort to talk to me, have several new facebook friend's now and I would love to get invited to perform there again. I also got to meet the delicious Darkteaser a personal burlesque idol of mine, she is absolutely stunning in person, I am going to be performing at her charity event in March.

My act was using a song from South Pacific (one of my favourite musicals, the title of my blog seems relevant and is also a lyric from another South Pacific song called Happy Talk). I recently filled out a form for a huge burlesque even and I had to say my main inspiration was musical theatre and from being an operatic society in my early teens. The song I use for this act is 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair' and I got to wear my gorgeous Revamp sailor outfit which is normally hanging up unloved and unused in my wardrobe! I also wore a What Katie Did Bikini, normally their stuff is absolutely ace but I have to say this particular bikini is neither nowt nor something, I don't think the top could be any more wrong than it is. Sadly I don't think I am going to have the time or money to replace it before I perform this act again. I did get some absolutely awesome pasties from The Libertarian. Images taken by my delicious lump of man stuff Nicholas Gray.

Christmas is just round the corner, I am actually completely sorted apart from like two things which I am going to pick up on Christmas Eve. I am looking forward to seeing how excited the kids get next week, it's going to be a mental build up of hyper whilst they aren't at school. Not going to see my boyfriend until NYE now, 3 weeks without him is virtually unbearable I have had to do it before turns me into an emo subhuman freak. I know I could end it but essentially I am stubborn and don't want to and love triumphs over logic every time.

My Trip to the Capital

Towards the middle of last month I had a trip down to London, not much fun doing the train journey from Newcastle to London and back on your own in a day. The trip had a purpose I was heading down to Erotica to spend the day with my friend Dave. This was before the utterly crappy snow started. I got down about 11:30 I am not a massive fan of London, I enjoy the slow paced 'tomorrow will do' attitude of the North East, if that makes me lazy so be it.

Went to a pub so cheap it could challenge a Wetherspoon's, although the veggie burgers (which is my regular at Spoons even though I am not a vegetarian) were better at this random pub.

Went into Erotica done a walk around a couple of times, seeing some of the amazing Maya Hansen and Velda Lauder corsets that I normally only get to dream of online in the flesh was amazing! If I had been a woman of means I would have severely dented my bank balance. I was sort of interested in the kink but the classier stuff was really my reason for going. There was a great stand that did amazing leather steampunky corsets too, absolutely amazing.

Speaking of classy, I went to see my friend Nicole, boss of The Hourglass and all round stunner who offered to do my hair for me. One of my photos were on The Hourglass display, this one in fact. Just FYI I am trying to sell my Neon Corset as it is now massive, it's the Danielle corset by Madame Le Strange, the bra too if anyone is interested. I would have loved it for a costume but I have lost a few inches and it doesn't do me any favours anymore.

Nicole mentioned that the Kiss Me Deadly stand was understaffed and asked if I fancied working over there for a few hours! I did and I had such fun, selling pretty things to pretty people made a Ms La Beau very happy. I also got work in my supercute KMD Vargas Dress which I already had on in accidental preparation, best work uniform ever. I had an amazing time and cannot recommend their products highly enough! If you're a girly girl you must check out their new Candy Box range its limited edition and to DIE for! Here is me 'working'!

In case you are unaware there has been some snow, meant I couldn't get to see the Mr at the weekend, I have been very very very hormonal all sorts going around me at the moment and I am not even donating eggs yet. I get to see him soon it's the stupid simple stuff I miss so much. Ended up having a pretty good weekend anyway, was a hell of a lot better than sitting at home watching Dating in the Dark repeats on my own.

I will be doing my pointless poetic Christmas list again like I did last year! The main thing I want is Lotsa from Toy Story 3 but I am reckoning the kids would totally pinch it!
