What's Next?

Coming up on April 13th:


My big break! I'm so excited to be performing along side the burlesque stars of Sydney, such as Lauren LaRouge, Holly J'aDoll, Kelly-Ann Doll and many more. 

We're going back to the classic burlesque of Sydney in the 60s. Travelling back in time to the world of The Pink Pussycat, The Staccato Club, The Persian Room and Les Girls as well as the glamorous cabarets The Roosevelt, The Cheetah and Chequers – all once under the close hand of underworld impresario Abe Saffron.

I'm currently looking for inspiration and came across a few amazing videos from the 60s.

The Peel:: Second Birthday

Another Peel has come and gone.
My 'prison' act went pretty well but could have been much better.
The poor DJ had to deal with my crappy CD which kept ejecting, so I ran upstairs to get my phone which has my music on it, but then when i got onstage it locked!!!! So nerve wracking, but good to get something like that out of the way.

It's been a busy week and it'll be a busier weekend. I had the Peel on Wednesday, Tattoo Expo and Dome bar today, and then the Pinup Kittens Magazine launch tomorrow and the tattoo expo again on Sunday. Whew! it's a big one.

It's free and swanky. Get dolled up in your best black tie rockabilly for the occasion.

Check out Pinup Kittens and their beauties.

Mardi Gras!

Sydney's Mardi Gras is one of the biggest in the world and it's special because it's the Gay and Lesbian pride parade. We're all proud of who we are, so Mardi Gras is one of the biggest nights of the year and we all get into it. EVERYONE dresses up and parties, so Pepper Grinde and myself (Maple Rose) of course joined the fun.

The Peel:: Terrible Twos

Coming up on Wednesday in Sydney is THE PEEL!!! Check out a huge line-up of gorgeous burlesque beauties from 7:30pm for only $10 at the door at the Slide Bar on Oxford Street (41 Oxford Street). I'm excited about my act, which will be a big.

team spirit

Etsy is the home of my corsets and costumes. I custom make corsets to any size and burlesque undies and bras. Have a look and give me a shout (through etsy) if you're interested.

Because I sell strictly burlesque items, I am a team member of the Burlesque Sellers on Etsy. They now have a brand new blog! Check this out They have weekly spotlights on selected sellers.
