Life of a Showgirl

A friend took me out for a little dancing and role play and dancing last night. We ended up at The New Champagne Rooms owned by Ahnyanka Delphin, where I flirted with and tipped the dancers and sipped way too much champagne.

A tipsy perusal of the shops around the club took me to Reasonable Desires, where I found this ensemble. I don’t find myself in situations where I need to be a showgirl very often (read: never), however this well done piece was so fun and inexpensive that I decided to give it a try. (I really think it was the champagne that got to me.)

Martini Joliat has done a great job of making a system piece that fits over the body and echoes the glamour of the showgirl. I could almost feel the weight of the pearls and sequins as they draped over my curves and the tight fitting sheer body suit. The feathers are well rendered with no ghosting or exposed edges (which can be a real problem). I did have to reattach the headdress to another point so I could keep my eyelashes on but that wasn’t a major ordeal.

I have paired Caroline Apollo’s White Pearl Shoulder Dust Earrings with the outfit and red Belles from Shiny Things.

We’ll see if I get a chance to wear this again. Who knows? Someday I may end up as a burlesque starlet at the New Champagne Rooms.
