BUT WAIT… you are a bit stuck with what gifts to buy the burlesque enthusiast in your life (or what to put on your Christmas list.)
Well lets get you back into shopping mode with our 5 Top Christmas Gifts for Burly Fans.
1 – A DVD about burlesque! Sure there are countless incredible DVD’s out there to purchase your burly enthusiast for Christmas but there is one that us lot at House of Trixie Blue thoroughly recommend and that is Burlesque Undressed (2010). This documentary showcases the fabulous side of burlesque alongside clips of incredible performances and interviews with burlesque legends. Scarlet Rose and Trixie Blue are often found watching this beautiful documentary whilst they are supposed to be working on new routines, costumes or accounts!!! (whoops) Don’t just take our word for it, here is what Amazon has to say…
Burlesque Undressed (2010) on DVD – From Amazon.com – http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002YT7W2E
Amazon – “The most revealing film of the year….
Having sold out four nights in a row at London’s Koko and established herself as one of the top burlesque performers in the world, Immodesty takes us into the heart of burlesque: a whirlwind of feathers, diamonds and the world’s top performers, with interviews from past legends and a fascinating peep behind the velvet curtain. An intimate portrait of a vintage art-form.
It’s hard to move in showbiz-land without becoming engulfed in an ocean of feathers, fans, corsets, sequins, and rhinestones. Just look at artists like Kylie, Katy Perry, Pink, Lady Gaga ,not forgetting the Saturday night staple, Strictly Come Dancing. The spirit of sexy camp – as seen in the film Cabaret, set in Weimar Germany, or Moulin Rouge – is back, and with Hollywood blockbuster ‘Burlesque’ now in production, starring Christina Aguilera and Cher, 2010 is the year burlesque crosses over to the global mainstream.
Immodesty Blaize, crowned the Queen of Burlesque 2007 in Las Vegas , first appeared in the media performing with Goldfrapp in videos and stage shows. With her signature glamorous brand of erotic, ironic theatrical entertainment, Immodesty is uniquely placed to give us a whistlestop tour of the history of burlesque. She has spearheaded the genre’s return to prominence in Europe as a sophisticated art-form. In a culture where we’re constantly bombarded with overt sexual imagery, Immodesty’s shows bring back high voltage glamour, humour and celebration, with the charm and allure of old Hollywood. She is very much in the tradition of national heroines such as Diana Dors and Joan Collins, who combine knowing sexuality with a British wit and a keen intelligence. Immodesty Blaize is a real woman with star quality – a modern day British Bombshell with the curves and the fun factor.”
2 – Winter is certainly here! What better to keep warm and stylish at bedtime with this fabulous Pin Up Duvet set from Asda.

3 – Our next suggestion is our favourite here at House of Trixie Blue. This flick book was brought into House of Trixie Blue headquarters not by Trixie Blue herself but by the man himself, Button, so it is perfect for ladies and gents alike! We absolutely love books here and what better than this fabulously cute flick book from Dita Von Teese.
Dita Von Teese – Striptease (2009) – Flick Book – http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/006176311X
Amazon “Famed photographer Sheryl Nields brings burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese to life in a series of flip books that capture the dancer′s most intimate performances. A perfect collectible book for fans of Dita, classic burlesque devotees, or for anyone who loves a playful and beautifully packaged book, DITA: STRIPTEASE is an exquisite visual tribute to this one-of-a-kind performer, featuring three of her most beloved dances:
Martini Glass Show: Performed all over the world, the martini glass show is Dita′s most famous burlesque act. Featuring her in her “Diamonds in the Buff” costume, Dita performs a traditional striptease that culminates with her bathing herself in an oversize martini glass, complete with olive sponge.
Bird of Paradise Show: Inside a posh gilded Victorian birdcage, burlesque′s brightest star reinvents the classic feather fan dance with two lush oversize feather fans of exotic, rare magenta pheasant feathers. In an extraordinary costume of beautifully curved feathers, Dita spins around on her golden perch, and treats audiences to an unforgettable wet and wild finale as sparkling water showers over her body.
Classic Striptease: This striptease features Dita dressed in a vintage suit complete with a veiled hat, seamed stockings, and sky-high stilettos. Audiences get a glimpse into Dita′s personal wardrobe-and what she reveals underneath it!”
4 – Our penultimate choice is to dress like you mean it with beautiful lingerie directly from the amazing Through the Looking Glass Corsets. Not only do they sell corsets, lingerie, they sell exquisite dresses so you can really look the part.
