Fabulous Burlesque Accessories
adornments to die for
Every Burlesque performer from the bawdy Gypsy Rose Lee of the dirty thirties to the erotic stage shows of the modern day queen of Burlesque Dita Von Teese realised the importance of classic accessories.
Feather boas and fans are an integral part of any Burlesque performance and what sort of strip tease would it be without the ever so slow removal of stockings and gloves?
An essential part of any Burlesque Outfit, for the dedicated vintage fashion aficionado or the more casual once a year fancy dresser, whatever the occasion, when you have to dress to impress, don’t forget those Burlesque Accessories.
Burlesque Feather Boa
Traditional Burlesque performers would use the feather boa to tease and tantalise their audience, now you can look just as glamourous with an authentic burlesque style feather boa.
Burlesque Hats & Fascinators
No self respecting Burlesque artiste would ever be seen in public without a classy piece of head wear, all the rage in the roaring forties and fabulous fifties and back in fashion today.
Retro Burlesque Gloves
An essential piece of clothing that no strip tease artist could afford to be without, the sensual art of teasing rely's heavily on peeling off a pair of gloves as slowly as possible.
Vintage Burlesque Stockings
No retro underwear collection would be complete without a pair of fully fashioned seamed stockings. Guaranteed to get the pulse racing whatever the occasion.
Retro Feather Fans
Designed to tease, the classic feather fan was a mainstay of every burlesque dancers repertoire and is a must have accessory to bring out for those burlesque inspired parties.
Showgirl Nipple Pasties
Time to get daring with a pair of peek a boo nipple pasties, complete with tassles for the woman who likes to be flamboyant and flirty, great fun for steamy nights in.
