Debut Performance...

Hey there lovelies. I have been meaning to post this for a while now, but you know how life tends to get away from me. Anyhow, here is the video from my Debut Burlesque performance. I am really proud of this number as it took months for me to grow the balls to perform it. But now that I have, performing has become a bit of a drug for me. I have been lucky to have been able to perform so often, so soon into my career, and I am thankful for every person who has supported me along the way. So... 

Also... If any of you are interested, I'm going to try to make it a point to add the flyers of my upcoming shows to this blog. So here is the flyer for the show that I will be kittening tonight. And for those of you who don't know what the kitten is, I call her the Vanna White of a burlesque show. She is the girl who comes on stage and picks up all the removed clothing by the performers and assist the host of the show in any way. Kittening has become one of my favorite gigs. But back to tonights show...

And... I am happy to announce that I have been asked back to perform in the Juke Joint Review #3!!! I had an absolute blast performing with such an amazing band, Empire Beats featuring the kick ass voice of Camille Atkinson. If you were not able to make it out to the last one, then don't miss this one on July 17th. I will be adding the flyer here once its made. 

Lastly... I had a blast at a photo shoot this week. I had my images captured by the very talented Andrew Lavengood of Andrew Lavengood Photography. I can't wait to get the images back and post them here for you. :) Please feel free to check out his blog:

That's all for now...

I've been planning to write for some time now, but my life has recently gotten away from me... and I don't mean that as a bad thing. I don't know what I did, but the stars must have aligned some who and whichever one is representing me began shining magnificently bright. 

On Saturday, I got dressed... well kinda, and made my way down to the 30th annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island. I also decided to bring homer because I happened to have a sailor costume that I purchased for him last Halloween. To say we made a splash is quite the understatement.  

Homer and I wound up in the New York Daily News, They new York Post, Humans of New York's Facebook page, as well as many other blogs and publications all over New York. It was truly an honor for so many people to want to feature an image of us and I could not be more tickled pink. 

This entry in going to be on the shorter side, but I wanted to end this with the article about us in the New York Post:

Just ‘maid’ for a Coney parade

A Brooklyn beauty struts in Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade yesterday — covered by little more than pasties, panties and a pooch.
Andrea “Poison” Ivy (Ivory... oops :) and her tiny sailor, Homer, were among 4,000 colorful marchers at the 30th annual procession on Surf Avenue. Clear skies and warm temps drew tens of thousands of spectators.
Reigning over the wild festivities were the parade’s honorary Queen Mermaid and King Neptune — Brooklyn-born actress Annabella Sciorra, 52, and comedian Jackie Martling, 64.

Pretty freaking amazing. <3

BTW... as most of you know, I have been working hard on building my burlesque career. And I just so happen to be having a show this Tuesday night. If you are in the New York area and want to attend, Take a look at the flyer and also feel free to add me on Facebook. Love you all and thanks so much for reading. :)
