Expo 2015: The Costume Exhibit

Dear Constant Reader,

(Read about The Rhinestone Revue, The Bordello, The Conference, and The Main Event.)

The Costume Exhibit is near & dear to my heart, because, well, costumes! BettySioux Tailor and Blizen von Schtupp do a fabulous job every year setting up a lovely display.

I love the panorama function!

Here were have, from left to right:

  • “Krampus” by Blizten von Schtupp with handmade mask by Rick Sardinha and faux fur coat by BettySioux Tailor
  • “Round Midnight” by Betty Blaize, from fabric hand-selected in Bangalore, India.
  • “Taki Rari Burly” by Dot Mitzvah, seen in The Rhinestone Revue 2013
  • “The Fly” by BettySioux Tailor. This picture doesn’t show the headdress with rhinestones eyes.

Here are 3 costumes courtesy of Angie Pontani: two vintage showgirl costumes (which were for sale and both of them were snapped up) and her “Madame Pompadour” costume. Next to them is a showgirl costume from maybe the 1970’s worn at the Primadonna Casino & Cabaret in Reno, NV, from Scratch’s collection.

And here we have:

  • “Pink Passion” by Blaze, The Red Rose of Texas / Red Rose Regalia for Ginger Valentine to wear in the 2014 Burlesque Hall of Fame Queen Competition.
  • “The Faerie Queene” by me, headress by Whisper de Corvo, fan by Cassandra Annati
  • “Ringmistress” by Vivienne LaFlamme, with a 1930s Knights Templar jacket.

I know there are better pictures out there, but until they surface, you’ll just have to suffer with my phone snaps.

Next year will be the tenth anniversary of The Expo, please consider making a contribution to make it super-amazing. And if you have a fabulous costume, modern or vintage, consider submitting it for the exhibit. If all goes according to plan, we should have a great on-line submission process for next year.
