Monday, April 05, 2010 | |

Hey all ((Whew!!!)) Who knew things would get this hectic both in the real world, and in the glam-bam-thank you ma'am glittery world of burlesque!?!

My humblest apologies for what may seem to be just a massive ammount of slackitude, but I have just been a whirlwind of busy these past couple of weeks! FYI: In case you all haven't noticed, I did set the settings on this group to allow everyone to post their events if I go through periods like this, so please feel free to POST POST POST anything you might feel is relevant to the Atlanta Burlesque scene!


-Ursula Undress made runner up for the Miss Viva Las Vegas Competition this year!!! GO GIRL GO!!! You are a wonderful attribute to the Atlanta Burlesque Scene and we are all proud of you!

- At long last!!! The Burlesque Hall of Fame Museum finds a new home in downtown Las Vegas, JUST IN TIME for the Miss Exotic World Competition and Burlesque Hall of Fame Reunion. Hurrah! The museum, which was first opened by former burlesque star Dixie Evans, is the home of an extensive collection of burly memorabilia, including Sally Rand's fans and the ashes of Miss Sheri Champagne.
