Expo 2014: The Bordello

Dear Constant Reader,

On Friday night at The Expo, after The Rhinestone Revue, we retire next door to what will become the Vendor Hall for The Bordello, a cabaret show with refreshments. It’s great because not only do we get to relax and socialize, there’s entertainment too. And it’s also an opportunity for more performers to get on stage, particularly ones who didn’t want to compete and/or are too experienced for The Original Newcomers’ Showcase.

It was also the one chance all weekend The Babydolls had to wear our uniform, here slightly obscured:

The show was expertly hosted by The Mad Marquis of Critical Hit Burlesque and contained so many fabulous acts. A few that stood out to me:

  • Lili VonSchtupp: Of course. She did her dirty, frustrating number to “I’d Like to Come”. Probably even funnier than when I saw it in Vermont because I knew what was coming (or not…)
  • Ms. Red Snapper: I followed the creation of this costume on her blog and it was great to see it in the flesh and in motion.
  • Matt Finish: Sexy, smooth, and a great dancer.
  • Vikki Fahrenheit: She sang “Peel Me a Grape” while stripping. She has a lovely, sultry voice and the bit with the rose petals is a sweet trick.
  • Dahlia Fatale: She just gets better and better every time I see her perform. Her chairwork is simply breath-taking.
  • And then I had to be up early the next day to teach!
