I thought i'd just make my first post about the thing that has been cosuming my life for the last year. :) If you have any questions [ i get alot, ill answer the most common ones below, just ask]

my favorite "legend" (thats what we call the women who really paved the way for all the whacky shit we do now)'s_Angel

our reigning queen this is the first aerial act to win the title of miss exotic world

what is miss exotic world? bhof? etc

i just really love this act


do you make your own costumes?
yes, i make about 90 percent of my costumes, every rhinestone is done by hand [my biggest, showiest act features around 11,000 hand applied stones]
I even made my own feather fans

feather fans?
fucking expensive to buy and to make, i love them though, even if it was a pain in the ass to make them. seriously...ostrich feathers...everywhere

how far do you strip down?
some girls strip to boyshorts, i go to gstring/merkin and pasties, i have special panties that are made for dancers so that you cant see my vagina when stage lights are on me, regular panties for stage are a NO NO . pasties attach with spirit gum, carpet or toupee tape. i make all my own merkins and they are basically a c string [ think of it as a panty with wires , its fucking weird] or i use a strapless panty base and decorate on top of it. im currently making one that looks like a slice of pizza. awww yisss

I could neverrrrrr getnaked on a stage. how do you do it?

lots of panic beforehand. but once you get onstage you pretty much blackout and go on auto pilot. it gets better though.

what KIND of burlesque do you do?
i do alot of goth/vampire/gore inspired acts. Im working on getting a stage prop that will be a glittery coffin :) I also do a ton of nerdlesque [glinda the good witch, pikachu, sulu, ] my pikachu act has "fans" that look like pokeballs

how do you dance in those shoes?
no fucking idea. ive busted my ass in shoes so many times, i feel onto the stage trying to climb the stage steps on my debut. but other than that ive never fallen . i use shoes that are specially made for ballroom dancers. stripper shoes are pretty but if you are stumbling around stage like a retarded baby giraffe...thats not sexy.

how do you get into burlesque?
i started taking dance classes, watch a ton of videos, read books about the history of burlesque. practice all the time and contact local troupes and see if they are looking for new dancers. most major cities have a scene. New orleans has a HUGE ONE, as does chicago, new york and several parts of texas

is there anything you wont do onstage?
yes, i draw the line at anything that would be cultural appropriation, i wont do native american or geisha type acts. its done quite alot, but its not something im comfortable with.

favorite dancers?
michelle lamour, banbury cross, satans angel, vivienne von coffin, kitten deville, jo weldon, there are so many.

how naked CAN you get?
new orleans is pretty lax, but i know that ive seen dancers do some pretty rauncy stuff on stages here. however, places like TN have blue laws that prohibit "underboob" or ass crack from showing.

here are links from two of my acts, in case you missed them in the chat box.

Not exactly burlesque, but it seems appropriate to plop this here:
Inside Amy Schumer - Milk Milk Lemonade

How do you, in particular, and, to the best of your knowledge, other burlesque performers, feel about strippers?
discolemonade2.0 said @ 4:22pm GMT on 25th May
this is actually a big topic to us. I think strippers are cool, sometimes. to me its like fast food and fine dining. yes, I love a nice sit down dinner, but sometimes I just want something quick and easy. I hate when people say , oh, you're not like those trashy pole dancers. firstly, I know burlesque dancers that started as pole dancers, some of my good friends are strip club dancers. its not fair to put down them to uplift what I do, we both take off our clothes, and I know I wish I could do pole tricks like they do.
sanepride said[1] @ 11:55pm GMT on 25th May
Isn't burlesque really the common ancestor of both? Not that I'm a scholar on the subject, but I think of the original burlesque as a quaint performance style that was kind of the 'naughty' vaudeville successor, the original strip-tease that evolved into modern strip club/pole dancing as standards of permissiveness loosened over the years. Modern burlesque seems like a throwback or homage to the original performance style.

youre mostly right. im not well studied on the history of pole dancing though.
not all burlesque is that retro/vintage style. theres two types, classic and neo
i'd be considered neo
but i do have a classic act as a lot of the bigger producers work in that genre.
arrowhen said @ 12:35am GMT on 26th May
The common ancestor of both is probably fertility rites stretching back to before the dawn of recorded history.

It'd be super-swell if discolemonade could make a single post, comment, photo or shout that wasn't about discolemonade. Cheers.
sanepride said @ 6:45pm GMT on 25th May
On the other hand, I think an argument can be made that as far as autobiographical content goes, disco's may qualify as more compelling than most.

Its pretty clear that you dont like me. thats okay, I dont expect everyone to like me. However, I felt like making a post and Burlesque has been a huge and positive driving force in my life for the last year. I felt like sharing something that was important to me. Next time, Instead of taking a minute to type out something shitty to me, maybe just ignore my existence? Also, alot of the times I go to talk in the "shout" box its because i'm lonely, or in a depressed state and I come to this community to have someone to talk to, even if its not about whats bothering me, its nice to know I have a community where at least a few of the members dont think im some sort of heinous bitch.

If you don't like the poster, that's fine; we don't all have to like each other. But this is an interesting and informative post offering an insider's perspective into a topic which probably no one else here has that kind of direct experience with. Downmodding a post like this because you don't like who posted it is not cool at all.
sanepride said @ 12:54am GMT on 26th May
Not to mention that the topic just happens to be ladies taking their clothes off. What's not to like?
mechanical contrivance said @ 12:56am GMT on 26th May
Maybe ladies taking their clothes off makes bleb uncomfortable.
discolemonade2.0 said @ 1:12am GMT on 26th May
maybe its ME taking off my clothes that makes him uncomfortable, haha. but isnt the whole thing for women on the internets ....TITS OR GTFO. well I provided
arrowhen said @ 1:21am GMT on 26th May
Nipples or GTFO. :P

I didn't know that this was still going on. A friend was involved in getting it started years ago, and I lost track of it after she got out of it.

She should get invited to perform that at the Vatican.
discolemonade2.0 said @ 8:00pm GMT on 25th May
thanks! i was at a thrift store picking it out and asking a friend if they thought if i hollowed it out...would my blood flask fit in it....i got some strange looks by people who overheard.

its just an old family bible that i took some glue and a razor to. I kinda want bedazzle it though.

Once it's a given that you're going to hell might as well just pull out all the stops.

i also do this routine to the song I touch myself, but I went with this song instead...cause it gives me a major lady boner

OK, now I'll have to watch it again...keeping this important detail in mind.

Hey! You cut the end of the Salome performance! Boo!

I meant the burlesque scene in Richmond in particular. Sorry, should have been more specific.

Fun stuff.
