Fur of Mystery, December Burlesque

Sarge gave his life for fashion. -salutes-

Sarge gave his life for fashion. -salutes-I have acquired a vintage fur of MYSTERY! Look at the chevrons! Seems to be a 1960s Mad Men era fur scarf, probably mink’s less expensive cousin, weasel, aka “summer ermine.” But, the chevrons!  I can’t tell if it was sewn, or dyed. Perhaps it was made from one of the sergeants of the Weasel Patrol?

More vintage furs at Lady Violette. Note the skunk set!

The end of the year is getting busy on Wellington’s burlesque stages.  I’ve got two December emceeing gigs.

  • Have Yourself A Very Merry Caburlesque, December 8th – Move over, panto, Christmas isn’t complete without a Christmas themed burlesque show! We’ve got all kinds of naughtiness planned for this one, and an amazing line up.
  • Bare and Back Again, A Burlesque Journey to Middle-Earth, November 30th/December 1st – Not only am I emceeing this piece of Middle-Earth madness, I’m producing it. A friend of mine said, “I heard about this and I was horrified…how can you make it work?” We think we’ve got just the right mix of humor, loving irreverence, and truly amazing acts to both evoke the magic of Middle-Earth and to help us all blow off steam after a movie-premiere-saturated week in Wellington. Tickets on sale here!
