Review: Dita: Stripteese

Dear Constant Reader,

Today’s “book” is a little different.

Dita: Stripteese. by Dita von Teese and Sheryl Nields (2009).

At first glance this is a dainty pink book tied shut with a satin ribbon. In actuality it’s a box containing three tiny flip books. Each book can be riffled front to back and then back to front to display one of Dita’s signature acts in “motion”.

The collection contains her Bird of Paradise act, Martini Glass act, and a striptease in a vintage outfit. The flipping only gives a so-so presentation of each act, but unlike pausing a video, each still photo is crisp and clear, if small. One can feast one’s eyes on every detail… of her costumes.

It’s a cute idea and the presentation is charming. Recommended for Dita fans.

P.S. Just a reminder… We’ve been nominated for “Best Burlesque” by the Weekly Dig. Please vote for us!
