The day started out FABULOUS! I went for my first fitting at Garo Sparo’s studio for my new act that I’m doing to the Rolling Stones “She’s a Rainbow,” The costume is AMAZING, all I can say is WOW!
On my way saw this man walking backwards down the street with a log on his back, hmm? Was he working out? Is this “green” exercise, did he use salvaged redwoods? I took this shot from the bus so it’s a little blurry!
Starshine Burlesque said goodbye to Riffifi today as they are closing in a month or two. A sad world, but they are onto more fabulousness and a bigger venue at The Fortune Cookie Cabaret! And what an inspiring show! My dearest and nearest were performing Tigger!(did a awesome act to a Betty Davis song), Jo Boobs(did my favorite version of her red act to Lucrecia McEvil), Julie Atlas Muz(did a reverse strip to Another one bite the dust and literally left the building), Delirium Tremmens(did a gorgeous classic burlesque act all in gold) , Kiss-tastic go-go from Scarlet Sinclair, and of course Little Brooklyn(did a “me and my shadow” act with Noa D’ Klien to a French song called fittingly Riffifi) and Creamy Stevens(did a striptease to So long, farewell from the sound of music!)
I had a lovely time getting ready and eating dinner with Scarlet before hand, and then risking the cold to join the cast across town. We had spinach(green!) and fish tacos that had a green sauce over them!
There was lots of loveliness backstage as well as lots of green!
