Under My Skin / Costume Guide - Chicago Burlesque Dancer Red Hot Annie Weinert
She really makes the wieners boil!

Red Hot Annie / Ann Marie Weinert
Date: 2012-09-11 21:01
Subject: Under My Skin / Costume Guide
Security: Public
Class: Intermediate Burlesque w/Red Hot Annie (http://vaudezilla.com/classes.html)

Performance Date: Lincoln Fair, Nov 9

Inspiration: That's Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, if you please.

This act is about finding the precision of dance movements, while maintaining a connection to the audience. You are a group of classy dames who flirt with rich men and drink martinis - at 2:00...in the afternoon! It's very vampy and a little aloof to start, but as the song progresses, we see that these girls can really cut loose and dance! Connect to the joy within the music and dance for this while making sure to execute the moves with proper form and accuracy.

Never rehearse the steps without a smile on your face and a connection to the world around you. You can't be on stage and be in your head at the same time!

Costume Guide
Colors: One Animal Print & One Solid Jewel Tone
(Animal print should be true to real color of animal)

Top Layer: Dress KNEE to CALF LENGTH, BUTTON OR ZIPPER ON SIDE OR FRONT, hat, black shoes, black thigh-high stockings (may be secured with garter)

Second Layer: Bra, undies (garter optional)
(If you feel unsure about showing your midriff, you can wear a black or animal print cincher)

Third Layer: Pasties

You'll also want to acquire tons of sparkle, sequins, trims and other things to make each part of your costume unique! I like to use Ebay to get things cheap.
