Back in 2006 I saw one of the best burlesque shows in Provincetown. As of late, Connecticut is representin’ itself on the scene as well. Though some of the girls are previously well known models, they are jumpin’ on the burlesque band wagon and it’s a good thing. Good for the area and good for the spectators alike, tee hee. Traditional Burlesque is not nude by the way, but if that un-pealing of fabric happens who’s to complain, really? With my craftin’ background and vintage appreciation, I’ve contemplated jumping on the pasty makin’ band wagon. Who wouldn’t want to have my own handmade nipple covers on them? What a superb way of introducing myself, “Hi, I’m LL and I made those” (while pointing toward the rack of some sweetheart). Can’t wait! Hope to see you out n about, don’t forget to send me your gig dates. Keep supporting local artisans, musicians and organic farmers! Xo ~LL~
