I’ve always loved Victoria’s Secret Fashion shows and secretly wanted to have an angel costume of my own… I tried to once, performing about 5 years ago at Vector Arena with some amazing wings, however my budget wasn’t quite what that of Victoria’s Secret.
However I love these as my favourites and potential Burlesque costume inspiration in the future. There are so many talented costume makers in New Zealand, picking out what I wanted would really be the hard bit.
Between wands, oversized wings and a $2.5 million jewelled “floral fantasy bra,”Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and the rest of the beautiful angels strutted the catwalk tonight in New York. And they were joined by the musical sounds of Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.
The show won’t be televised until Dec. 4, but you can sneak a peek of some of the outrageous lingerie right now (you’re welcome)!
Welcome to the surreal world of Dr Sketchy, in particular the local branches of a global “Anti-Art School” network originating in New York and described as “fringe performance” – a crossover between pop culture, cabaret, burlesque and drawing classes. Doctor, they like your medicine, as the song goes. New Zealand’s branches in Auckland, Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch are flourishing with inventive, character-driven themes, as a night with the Auckland crew illustrates, in every sense.
Combining performance and visual art, there are Dr Sketchy events in 50 countries. In New Zealand there are already regular running events in Wellington, Christchurch, Auckland and Nelson and more!!

Remember candy floss? So sugary sweet it made your teeth hurt & yet your childish brain demanded more, more, MORE until your brain collapsed into a sugar induced coma. I also like to call it kiddy crack.
Well, this Monday you can brush sticky wing tips (that wasn’t meant to sound as filthy as it came out) with the debauched Candy Floss Fairies of the K Road Christmas Carnival. Kawaii!! Squeep!
MC & candy cane wielder Lilly Loca is back with more sass & witty filth. Although this time she promises not to jizz on your face. Maybe just sprinkle a little fairy dust…
Bring your favourite tools: pens, paper, pencils, crayons, glue, cameras and/or finger paint. Dr. Sketchy is open to anyone, regardless of creed, colour and artistic style.
In the southern Hemisphere its Winter…. well and truly COLD. I’ve just moved house so I litterally have less than 100 metres to walk to get to work. The cold snap is totally a wakeup call… followed swiftly with a strong cup of coffee from the Little Cake Kitchen – White Chocolate Mocha or Ginger, Lemon and Honey… Mmmmmm Delicious first thing as a wake up or pick me up!
Roller Derby – Another amazing sport full of stong minded women who are not afraid to speak their minds, drink lots, give each other a bash or two on the track and wear “Shiney Whore Tights” and spanky pants in public. These girls are my family… of sorts anyway… My advice to any derby girl… – Dont ever lose your ‘non-derby’ friends…
Its their bands first ever public gig and the model they’ve booked is a no show. Without mentioning names.. it really surprised me to hear this from that company!!
I initially wanted to stay home relax and catch up with friends like a good host should! Its not the easiest thing to ring around looking for someone comfortable enough to be painted up head to toe (effectively naked) in public! However being a Burlesque performer generally warants being almost naked in front of an audience.. (can’t see how it would work otherwise)!
So having decided I’d do it, (it was worth my while) I rushed off up the road not really knowing what to expect and hoping I’d brought everything of need! Turned out I should have brought eyelashes, glue and lipstick and left the different coloured undies at home!
The next 3.5 hours while the band do a full run through I’m starkers being painted up like this!
The night was a huge success and I had an absolute blast and hopefully my friends will forgive me for missing my own party…!!
