Trad-goth, drag-king obsessed, soul-singing Sweety-pie. Would dearly love to take over the world and be a benevolent dictator, but prefers to sing ACDC covers and bake pies for the anarchists instead.
Cleo Torres: the hardest performer to find! Many men have tried and failed without assistance! Cleo joins Va Va Boombah from San Francisco, the first ever international Boombah!
“I believe that magic exists only for those who seek it, who create it and who worship it. I believe that everyone is beautiful, and everyone is worthy of love and happiness. I believe in the power of glitter, of winged eyeliner and red lipstick. I believe that life IS what you make it, and I am going to make mine AMAZING!” -PrettyCannibalGirl
PrettyCannibalGirl is bold, she loves life, and adores performing onstage, preferably in a corset and seamed stockings. Taking inspiration from Bettie Page and old school burlesque, she mixes this with a more modern, gothic aesthetic. The result is glamorous and sexy, with a hint of bloodlust. Offering classic burlesque performances, with glamour and glitz, she is sure to please!
When she isn’t taking #bathtubselfies, cuddling puppies or breaking hearts you can find Miss Kate prancing about somewhere between the pop and heavy metal section in a second hand CD shop… inspiration, dear Watson!
Miss Kate is happiest when she’s twirling in a new frock or going for a frolick at a picnic. Known to have a fucking potty mouth and obvious lover of the colour magenta. Previously of Babylonia Tribal Bellydance, she has lips, hips and tits and she isn’t afraid to use them! Inspired by creative mavericks who delve into the unexpected and contradictory…
In her spare time, Miss Kate enjoys indulging her creative side by designing frocks for the curvier woman under her label MISTY BELVIDERE…

Madame Derrière is voluptuous young thing trapped in the 50′s, living in the naughties, beginning in the nineties.
She loves to sing, dance,twist and shout and of course be a little bit of a dram queen (because lets face it, everyone loves a good drama queen, right?). Of course, being the good little pinup housewife she is, she adores everything pearls, lace and perhaps even some leather here and there.
If you want to see more of her you can always take a peep on her page, www.facebook.com/madamederriere
