“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
Some say that she’s the love child of Sir Elton John and Judy Garland (if that were at all possible). Smothered in a secret sauce… All we know is, that she’s Bambi Lipschitz.
This Broadway baby of Burlesque has enjoyed extensive experience in treading the theatrical boards, both on stage and behind the scenes and since making her Burlesque debut in May 2012 has been entertaining and engaging audiences regularly all over Melbourne .
Some have likened this Germasian sensation (a delicious hybrid of German and Asian) to being a flamboyant gay man trapped in the body of a curvaceous femme fatale.
When she’s not saucily seducing you from the stage, Bambi can be found dancing around her house in sequinned underwear singing show tunes, lurking where all good sequins are sold, leading redheads astray and being distracted by things that are shiny.
Hissy Loco sings and plays ukulele. Her songs lament falling asleep on public transport, celebrate getting all dressed up and having nowhere to go, and ask why we can’t all be cowboys. Since 2009, Hissy Loco has played the Melbourne Ukulele Festival 2011, 2012 and 2013, the Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby’s Christmas party 2012, magazine launches, a shop opening, Earth Hour celebrations, children’s parties, weddings, community events and misc stages around Melbourne and interstate. Hissy is now trying her hand as a showgirl with Va Va Boombah and hopes to audition for the Rockettes in 2037.
