Angel Burlesque’s motto is “real is sexy” but that’s just because “highly stylized version of yourself in which you artfully highlight the parts you love and carefully conceal the parts you don’t is sexy” is just a little wordy.
When you’re performing burlesque, you’re not presenting your“real” self but a highly stylized version of yourself. Do I walk around in sparkles, false eyelashes and fringe all the time? No. (If I were cooler I would. Sometimes I wear fairy wings or a tiara tothe grocery store to cheer myself up but I digress.) But, I do believe real is sexy…the heart of that is; YOU are sexy, just as you are right now. Not in 20 pounds. Not after that boob job. Right now. You are sexy, valuable and worthwhile. There’s a confidence that needs to be fostered so you can shine as a human being onstage or off.
I am a 33 year old married mother of a 4th grade girl. I have been involved in burlesque for a while and performing for a year. Discovering burlesque as an art form and getting involved both happened in my thirties after wife and mother were both established titles. Though this is not uncommon in our trade, it does present different obstacles than someone that was performing pre-family.
I decided to interview my husband and daughter to get their take. I wanted to know how it has affected my husband to have a wife that was a retail manager and mom when we met become a woman busy with shows, costumes, rehearsals, workshops—OH and taking her clothes off for people on stage. Also though, I was curious to see how it is viewed by my young, impressionable 9 year old girl.
