The art of 
Burlesque

Each of my costumes are designed by myself with the great help of costume artist Nadja Jeberien and the fashion designer DaiJanala. 

My costumes consists of big feather boas, rhinestoned lingerie and tailor made corsets. Making one costume takes several weeks of work and making sure that all costumes are easy to strip off and artistically presented is a challenge.  

Burlesque Costumes
 

Burlesque costumes are often designed to be both sensual and playful, with a focus on accentuating curves and showcasing the beauty of the human form.

These luxurious garments are crafted from high-quality materials and feature intricate designs that are embellished with sparkling rhinestones. 

Corsets come in a variety of styles, including overbust and underbust, and can be made from a range of materials, such as satin, leather, and lace. The corset's structure helps to create a flattering silhouette by cinching in the waist and providing support to the bust. The rhinestone embellishments add an extra layer of glamour, making these corsets perfect for formal events, weddings, or even as a statement piece for a night out.

When choosing a rhinestone corset, it is important to ensure that you select the correct size to ensure a comfortable and flattering fit. It is also important to consider the occasion and the outfit that you will be wearing with the corset to ensure that it complements your style.

Gipsy Rose Lee, on the other hand, was a burlesque performer from the golden age of the art form, known for her wit, charm, and distinctive stage presence. Her costumes were often more understated than those of modern burlesque performers, but still featured bold colors, playful patterns, and eye-catching accessories. Fans of Gipsy's style can find plenty of vintage-inspired burlesque costumes that capture the essence of her timeless appeal, from flapper dresses and sequined bodysuits to tasselled pasties and sparkling headdresses.
