1st Runner Up: Miss Burlesque Melbourne

mbvic2018.jpg

This weekend’s Miss Burlesque Victoria ✨competition✨ was one of the finest shows Melbourne has ever seen, and I’m so honoured to have been a part of it. Every contestant was strong in their character, style and knew their art form inside and out. From the minute the lineup was announced, we all knew we’d be in for one hell of a ride. It was a tough 6 months gearing up to this comp; so much money, time and dedication was put into this show by each and every contestant. And it all comes down to 3-5min on stage, which can send anyone’s nerves into high gear!

❤️ THANK YOU to everyone that’s been around, supporting me throughout this crazy time! But most importantly, and listed first, i have to thank my dear fiancé and dream man, Mitchell Kuhn who got the brunt of it dealing with my tears, anxiety, highs, lows, and debt. But he held my hand, gave me midnight snuggles, and kept me together throughout this whole journey.

❤️THANK YOU, Haven Noir , for being my guardian angel and saving my slightly unorganised ass too many times. To having gloves thrown in your face, to tightening the bolt on my fans minutes before the curtain went up, your calm demeanour and know-how attitude is so grounding. I’m honoured to call you a friend, and I owe you my ass.

❤️THANK YOU to my amazing duo partner, Christopher Politis , who was so professional and a delight to work with! Can’t wait to bring this act back out again and again with you by my side.

❤️THANK YOU Ivy D'Auton (Asphyxia Couture) for making an epically engineered masterpiece for my unique. It was a tough call to ask for an ‘on-command’ splitting seam and you delivered magic!

❤️THANK YOU to Kerrie at Shimmery Costumes for altering my vintage baby, the green gown for the red carpet parade. I can not recommend this woman any more highly!! She’s a dreamboat!!

❤️THANK YOU to all of the contestants for making this a tough competition! Domino de Jour , Ainslie Adams , Ruby Slippers, and the ✨WINNER✨ of the title Miss Burlesque Victoria, Velma Vouloir ❤️ , you all pushed yourselves to the max and we put on a damn good show. No matter what the outcome, we did what we all do best, which is so epically diverse! Melbourne has a fucking fantastic scene and I’m so honoured to be a part of it with you lot.

🌟The glitter crash is real, people. I’m so proud of what I’ve accomplished. I know both acts I produced were at the best of my ability and I accomplished what I set out to do - to entertain you. I’m honoured to come runner up to a beauty inside and out like the stunning Bianca Smith . You deserved it, gorgeous! ❤️
