Concept art for my next burlesque act. I’m a mermaid and Lala is gonna be the sea witch. It’s loosely based on my webcomic Darlin’ It’s Betta Down Where It’s Wetta. The sond that goes along with it is the one that made me laugh so hard I barfed.
I’ve actually already designed a mermaid burlesque outfit AND an octomaid costume for the 30 day monster girl challenge, but I kind of half-assed both of those, and it figures that I would be needing both of those. So I had to come up with a more wearable concept for each. A photo of the mermaid dress is here. Tonight I’m making the tentacle skirt.
Geez what did I do before I started sewing? I’m so excited for this. Come see it February 22 in Grand Rapids, MI; and February 23 in Traverse City, MI
Plant Girl (30 Day Monster Girl (Burlesque) Challenge Day 7)
Last week I said snakes were nature’s burlesque dancers with their skin shedding, but trees are kind of the same way with their leaves dropping. See, burlesque is completely natural!
This is a variation of a fan dance, but with tree branches that slowly lose their leaves over the course of the dance. It would be a pretty stationary dance as far as legs go. She’s pretty rooted to the ground in that skirt.
Spider Girl (30 Day Monster Girl (Burlesque) Challenge Day 6)
Well, how else would you get a spider girl? :P All these creatures with unorthodox number of limbs make for interesting challenges interpreting these as feasible burlesque costumes. This would be really heavy unless you made the fake legs out of paper mache. Aaaaand now I want to make a giant ruffley bustle.
The fancy dress uniform for Lesbos-1, coming up soon in LPFOS. Along with the official Lesbos-1 salute.
