Welcome Constant Reader!

I’m Miss Mina Murray, Prima Diva (that means “First Lady” or “Biggest Pain-in-the-Ass”, depending on whom you ask) of The Boston BeauTease (formerly The Boston Babydolls), Headmistress of the Boston Academy of Burlesque Education, and author of Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque & Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Burlesque Costuming, Vol. 1: The Foundations.

This is where I write letters to the world. Missives are sent out a couple times a week. Fridays are reserved for Friday Tips — snippets of advice about burlesque, which means performance, costuming, hair & make-up, business, and anything else I feel can benefit the burlesque entertainer. Wednesdays are often book review day, but I’ve reviewed almost all the burlesque books on my shelf. (See Wish List for what I hope to review in the future.) I’m usually quiet on the weekends because I’m performing and/or rehearsing and on Mondays because I’m too tired from the weekend. Additionally one can expect to find costume pictures, recipes, and other ramblings.

For quick reference:
The Academy is where you will find Friday Tips and other posts devoted to education.
The Album contains photographs
The Attic is where I keep burlesque memorabilia.
My Boudoir is where I keep lingerie, cosmetics, and other dainties.
The Kitchen is where you will find my culinary adventures and occasionally recipes. Search on the tag historic cookery for culinary experiments from the Middle Ages to Mid-century.
The Library is the place to go for book reviews.
Rehearsal Room should be self-explanatory.
The Sewing Room is where I make my costumes and clothing.
My Suitcase is what I take traveling and touring.
The Theatre is where you can read about shows I have seen or been in.
My Writing Desk is for missives that don’t really belong elsewhere in The Manor.
