A queer burlesque hand fasting ceremony in the woods
We’d love to stumble upon this queer burlesque hand fasting ceremony in the woods. See what this burlesque performer and cannabis medical consultant describe as a “queer, witchy hoe, burlesque” hand fasting with a non-possessive ceremony script.
It’s Scotch and upturned kilts at this historical meets pop culture meets burlesque wedding
Our wedding included a lot of nods to nerdisms of which we're fans. We hosted our guests in a castle in Scotland for four days, and wanted to be sure that every minute was curated, so that they could relax and be swept away by their surroundings. The entire weekend was a reception that included a good amount of play and performance including burlesque and an owl meet and greet.
An eclectic rock ‘n’ roll burlesque extravaganza wedding
Jeb and I are an eclectic and creative couple — he makes candles and plays spoons, while I'm a burlesque dancer and costume milliner. Our wedding was very us: a mixture of extravagance and quirkiness where all of our talented friends were included. Our whole wedding was put together using my DIY skills (I made all the invites, programs, and decorations) and the talents of our friends and family.
A geeky Moulin Rouge wedding with burlesque & a Doctor Who-themed first dance
We had a Moulin Rouge theme! There was a cabaret group routine to kickoff the ceremony. We had a quick change from the ceremony to tango dress that had a Doctor Who Theme Song with a custom dance routine. There was lots of DIY crafted decor by my mother-in-law and bridesmaid accessories made by me. You don’t want to miss this one!
Queer black Baltimore realness: a drag king and a burlesque performer get married
“Chris is an award-winning drag king and Sydney is a burlesque performer. Needless to say, this means our wedding was very theatrical.” The dress code was “not basic,” and they saw outfits ranging from sequin cocktail dresses to leprechaun costumes, to drag, to ALF. They walked down the aisle, catwalk-style, to a gay dance club classic, “Din Daa Daa” by George Kranz. Sydney's 35-year old brother was the ring bearer and her 98-year old grandmother made it rain with a Cash Cannon as the "flower girl." Y’all NEED to see this amazing queer black Baltimore spectacle!
Burlesque bachelorette party: boas, gloves, and good times
You guys, we’re coming into bachelorette and hen party season, which means that we know some of you are like, “Wait, what are the options for NON-penis cake bachelorette parties? Are there bachelorette party games and activities that don’t involve bars?” (No shame in penis cakes or bars, of course. I mean, I personally love a good penis cake. And a good bar.)
BUT! Seattle and Puget Sound area folks! You’ve got an amazing bachelorette party alternative — and it’s one I even have very first-person experience with: The Academy of Burlesque.
