“Syrens of the South’s very first Mechanical Masquerade!”
Who: Syrens of the South Productions
What: The Mechanical Masquerade
When: January 16, 2009
Where: The Little Tree Studios
2842 Franklin Street
Avondale Estates, GA 30002
www.syrensofthesouth.com

Come one come all to the Syrens of the South’s Mechanical Masquerade of Marvels and Merriment! Here now marks the first in the series of semi-monthly events brought to you by the marvellous mistresses of petticoats, frills, and thrills – the Syrens of the South. Come enjoy this maiden voyage away from the standard burlesques and enter into a world of neo-Victorian anachronistic characters. An evening filled with brass, leather, steam and SCIENCE! Modelled after the fantastic sub-genre of fiction, fashion, and music often called Steampunk or Victoriana. This event series promises to highlight fine vendors, entertaining amusements, and music that would make Jules Verne proud.

With song selections playing through the night by the illustrious host of the evening, the notorious Doctor Q, the evening promises to cater to all types from any time period. For those with finer tastes, there will be performances sprinkled through the evening to delight and defy the sharpest of imagination. And the lords and ladies may even wish to peruse the displays by the artists, vendors, and sponsors such as Anachrocon, the Clockwork Cabaret, Extraordinary Contraptions, Gentlemen’s Emporium, Penny Dreadful Productions and more.

So hop upon your horseless carriage, time travelling machine, airship, or otherwise and be sure to attend the festivities to dance, shop, and enjoy the cavalcade of clockworks and carousing in your finest threads or scavenged and assembled attire.

SUNDAY:

noon-2pm “Pastie Making with Talloolah Love”
Talloolah Love teaches the fine art of making your own pasties! She will teach the practicalities of making, wearing and performing with pasties! Many of the materials required will be provided with a $5 materials charge; however you are encouraged to bring needles, thread, and scissors. Each student will be going home with their very own pasties!


GUEST TEACHER ALERT!!! (SQUEEEEE)

2pm-4pm “The Art, Architecture and History of Hosiery with Kisa von Teasa”
Many of us go to a random store and grab some hose with a mix of apathy and dread. Then, there are people that look and feel each and every pair. Testing for stretch, texture and opacity. They know the secret of a good weapon when they see one. Let Kisa von Teasa teach you the art of stocking removal. This can add quite the dramatic element to any performance. Do you want it short and snappy or do you savor a slow burn? Whatever you do, don’t underestimate this skill in the Burlesque Performer’s repertoire. In this class Kisa von Teasa will show you exactly how a pair a thigh-hi’s can be a tool of deadly mesmerism. You will need: At least two pair of either Thigh-Hi’s or Garter hose. Do not bring your favourite as you may rip them in practice. Pumps without straps, so that you can easily slip them on and off, Garter Belt, Clothing that you can have easy access to said garter belt and hose, pretty Burly-Q panties, tap pants, and/or a skirt will do. (There will be hosiery for sale at the class as well)

Classes in the ABCs & 123s Class Series are $20 each or $60 for a four class pass, a savings of $20. The classes do have a minimum requirement, so please email syrensofthesouth@gmail.com by 5pm the Friday before the class.
