Think Pink!

Just finished embellishing our brand new costumes by Tyra Therman that we´re going to premiere tomorrow at the SOLD OUT Finnish Burlesque Gala! It´s a pleasure to be a part of this, since it´s a fundraiser for the Helsinki Burlesque Festival in February. So thank you everyone for helping -with whatever you have been doing, -from buying tickets, to planning what to wear, to spreading the word to making the magic happen! Biggest kaboom! is of course to our own Bettie Blackheart for being the master mind behind it all.
Also note that the seated tickets for the Festival are, but a few, also sold out so you really should get running to Tiketti! The line up will be pretty f*ing awesome as usual, trust me...Can´t WAIT to see Minnie Tonka, Darlinda Just Darlinda and ...*swoon* Mr. Gorgeous again <3
It´s going to be a busy Xmas time for yours truly, some dates have been added to the calendar so hopefully I´ll see you around! Helsinki, Porvoo, Lahti - the possibilities are endless ;)

I remembered when I was working on our first group number with Sandy and Pepper and how we all laughed because well..."Naked" is all pink! I had never been a big fan of the color but hey whaddayaknow - we have a new PINK number tomorrow! You gotto see it to believe it!

Have a marvellous weekend ya´ll!

Some of our inspiration for our new number: our stage kitten costumes at HBF12, Fiona Timantti and Queen <3

Events and more events!

Hello ya´ ll!

Back in Finland again but quite frankly this resembles more Mordor at the moment...BRRR! But fret not because I bring you the sparkly news of glittering events along the upcoming Winter where you can see me and my few glitter tribe shake our tail feathers (sorry everyone who "hates that word" but I really love it and think it somehow explains a lot of the community I feel a part of)!

Here goes! Firstly a few gigs where you can see yours truly! In less than two weeks me and my girls will be performing at the Amsterdam Burlesque Awards Sunday Matinée! We are very happy to bring our crazy kittehs over there!

On the 22nd of November there is the annual (and always sold out) Suomi Burleski Gaala that is a benefit for the Helsinki Burlesque Festival and Bettie Blackheart will bring you some of the sparkliest of the Finnish burlesque scene! As usual the event will be at the Ravintola Kaisaniemi.

On the 26th of November there will be the Burlesque Fantastico produced by Sir Willy Waterlily in Porvoo -combining both acrobatics, tango and live music with some burlesque!

Thee Dizzy Daisies are pretty busy performing at private events and parties this season so do send an e-mail quickly if you´re interested in booking us!

But this NOT all! Oh no way :)  The Itty Bitty Tease cabaret are also busy bees indeed, serving us a sweet compot of live music (Sweet Jeena and her Sweethearts) and burlesque at the SPECTAC-O-RAMA at Allotria in Helsinki, on TWO dates none the less! So mark 08.11 (that´s next Saturday, folks!) and 26.11 in your calendars if you can´t be in Porvoo!

So stay tuned people! Also in December there will be the Teerenpeli Tease on the 13th of December in Tampere produced by the oh-so-lovely Olivia Rouge

And the following evening 14th of December there´s the Under the Mistle Tease Vol2. the Showgirl Edition in Helsinki!

And right before we´re running off to those well-deserved holidays the Shimmering Sheilas are organizing the last of their shake-trilogy at Lavaklubi in Helsinki on the 20th of December!

So really- if you can´t find an event to satisfy your needs for glitter I don´t know what will! Ta!
