Good day you lovely lot,

How are you this very fine day? We hope you have lots of exciting things planned today.  We are bringing you a short blog post today about our Enchantresses, Scarlet and Trixie’s weekend of burlesque at The Big Burlesque Showdown.  If you fancy a cheeky read of what we got upto, then grab a steaming cuppa and relax…

The Big Burlesque Showdown Gossip

On Saturday 27th June 2015, two enchantresses (along with their entourage haha) popped down to Bedford, home of La Plume Events by Lady K’s.  Lady K’s is a fantastic burlesque company, along with their own shop and online shop – http://www.ladyks.co.uk/ These lovely lot also produce shows and one of these shows is the burlesque competition The Big Burlesque Showdown.

The Big Burlesque Showdown is a competition that has featured three semi final heats (Feb/April/June), comprises of three winners per event; Best Newcomer, Best Established and Audience Choice.  All of the winners from each heat win a place in the finals, which takes place on Saturday 26th September 2015 in Bedford. 

Scarlet & Trixie had the pleasure to be a part of the June heat in the category of Best Established performer along with these amazing ladies:

Finesse Temptress
Mariposa Bop
Coco Coquine
Tamara D’Amour

Carrie Couture
Madaleine Soleil

We did have a right giggle with the above burlesque beauties backstage.  Not only that, our enchantresses were thrilled that they had their own space in the dressing room, marked with their stage name and LAMINATED! Very easily pleased haha!

All acts had the opportunity to perform twice on the night in a show of two halves.  The fantastic compare Eddie Adams and the band the J37’s provided an incredible atmosphere that all burlesque performers dream of.  The audience were full of beans and wanted all the acts to do well. The support was overwhelming and really appreciated by all the performers. Here is Scarlet & Trixie backstage (took forever to get this photo as Trixie is rubbish at taking selfies)

After a wonderful break full of banter and FOOD! Boy oh boy did we love the backstage spread (thank you Lady K Crew) nom nom nom.  We forgot to take a picture, perhaps because all the food was demolished haha!

Trixie not only opened the full show, she opened the second act as well. This time with Narcissistic Cannibal (photos by Stacy P and see branding)

After all the fantastic performances, it was then time to announce the winner.  Trixie & Scarlet half forgot it was a competition as they had such an amazing time performing and all of the backstage banter with all the beautiful burlesque babes. 

Drum roll please…

Best Newcomer – Tamara D’Amour

Audience Choice – Coco Coquine

Well done to these incredible performers!

(Any need for Trixie having banter with the front row haha. They wanted to use the fan that Trixie was standing in front off so she teased them with it. – Photo Stacy P)

So who won Best Established Performer?

In the mist of clapping and hollering for all the other winners, our very own Trixie Blue was announced as the winner for Best Established.  As Trixie was preoccupied in clapping for everyone else, she didn’t realised her name was called. What a douchebag! (photo by Stacy P)

Well done to everyone who took part in the competition. It was a pleasure to work with you all.  Our enchantress Scarlet Rose presented a breathtaking performance, which left Trixie BURSTING with pride! and Our Trixie, well she did alright. She definitely didn’t expect to win and is very humbled to have done so – Thank you. (photo CG Photography)
