Dusty Pillows Burlesque Performer
Let me introduce you to my burlesque alter ego, the lovely and gorgeous “Dusty Pillows”.
Now Dusty was born approximately 4 years ago. After finishing a relationship which left me emotionally drained and with very low self esteem I decided I needed to do something to rectify that. I needed to do something that was completely out of my comfort zone.
Now what did I do I imagine you are thinking to yourself; well I took burlesque lessons and it went from there. I had 3 acts back then one of which was an elderly cleaning/tea lady. This was a comedy act with a fair bit of audience participation.
Now I can also imagine ok not bad but you don’t know me. If someone had told me twenty years ago that I would be performing on a stage and twirling tassels too I would have choked from laughing so much there and then.
This is because I am a fairly quiet, laid back, homely person. But when I was in character I became something completely different and had a lot of fun playing her. She is still there under the skin so I think I might let her out occasionally to do some product reviews for you.
I will attach a little photo of Dusty so you know what you are letting yourself in for.
As you can see I think she would be particularly good at make up reviews and tutorials.
