Catching up - part 3
After all the hard work a girl needs a bit of fun, no? I mean "because I´m worth it! ;) Its amazing what a few curlers and some "falsies" can do for an exhausted woman with a cold...
And Cinderella is off! Not to a ball, but a The Stockholm Burlesque Festival!
Many of the ladies had dressed to kill...
I clean up pretty well ! ;)
Our hostess for the evening - World Famous Bob - who also held an absolutely amazing workshop called - The Ultimate Self Confidence Workshop! If ever she´s in your neighbourhood take this course!
There were lots of local performers. Her is Velma Voluptuous doing her " La vie en rose" number.

My favorite Swedish performer - Duchess Dubois!
There were also performers from the rest of Scandinavia, like this talented and humorous group from Finland - The Itty-Bitty Tease Cabaret! And can you tell who the third girl from the left is?
Ulrika from The Freelancer´s Fashionblog!
And she is just as good looking IRL ;)
These cute little birdies were up for sale. Is it the talented work of my blog friend and hat maker Frollein von Sofa? Nope, they´re not even hats...
They are little pasties and the creation of Lady Francesca! :)
There were several international stars like ; Miss Indigo Blue, The Twirly Girl who also had two great workshops that I took. The Art of The Tease and Tassel Twirling. I learned so much! And I bought a pair of her beautiful and well made tassels. The look like these, but with clear stones.
Eventually I became too sick (...) to stay for a full set and went home with a fever during intermission.
Still I dragged myself to the Afternoon Tea the following day. Hosting The Amazing Knicker Kittens Burlesque Revues little afternoon tease was, as always ,the imitable Mme Magdushka! :) I had a fabulous time!
