I would be surprised if you hadn’t heard of Bettie Page.  Like quite literally like “OH MY GOD! You don’t know who Bettie Page is?????”.  But then again I would have the same reaction if you told me you hadn’t read any Terry Pratchett books “You WHAT!!? Quick, take my copy of The Colour of Magic and read it immediately!!!” (I’m such a nerd *sigh*).... • read more •

nihongo o hanashimasu ka?

Posted 29th April, 2010 by

Minasan!  Konichiwa!  O genki desu ka? In English that roughly translates to “Hello everyone!!!  How are you?”.  Why all the Japanese you ask?  Well I thought I’d share with you some little tidbits and (a sneak preview if you will) of a costume I am working on. When I started performing with Sugar Blue, I knew I wanted to do a Geisha act.  I’ve always... • read more •

Does Want!

Posted 27th April, 2010 by

So as I have previously stated, I am trying very hard to reduce my consumerism this year by only buying vintage or making it myself.  But being the avid online shopper I am (I think I would have been addicted to buying things out of catalogues if I lived in the 1920s), I just can’t stop browsing the endless aisles of of the world wide web... • read more •

There was a great little write-up on last night’s opening event for the London Burlesque Week where A’dora Derriere, Sapphire Demure and I performed our awesome Cherry Mambo number. We got a great reaction from audience & performers alike!  Check out the comments – someone says that our act was their favourite – “just that little bit different”.  We’re definitely ready to take on the world!  ... • read more •

Why Hello There!

Posted 19th April, 2010 by

Hello my lovelies!  Clara Cupcakes here, resident hula hooper, fan thrower and aficionado on all things baked and sugary.  I thought I would start my string of postings by introducing you to my delightful namesake and how I came to decide on my bejeweled alter ego. I spent forever trying to decide on what my burlesque name should be.  I trawled through old movie starlets, character from... • read more •

Check out our Review of our Melbourne show!

Posted 22nd March, 2010 by

The lovely Candice De Ville has written a glowing review of the Sugar Blue Revue, Melbourne Show. “It is not often I wish I was somewhere other than Melbourne, but the incredible Sugar Blue Burlesque troop have made me entirely jealous of the people of Perth.
