Burlesque Gypsy Dancer

Burlesque Boudoir

Burlesque Gypsy Dancer

This little number is a real vintage, real French can-can doll! Now, here on this stage, she is a burlesque dancer with gypsey blood in her veins. She dances to the sound of the gypsey guitar on an opulent stage, with a feather curtain - all speaking of the promise of sensuality and decadent indulgence.

I recently bought part of a collection of vintage dolls - some are still in their original packaging and still have their labels on! This dancer's dress and stockings are too beautiful. The lace stockings are perfectly in tact and has miniature blue roses on the garters. The tiny little panties are also lined with rows and rows of frilly lace. Her arms and legs are posable and when she pulls her arms up, the dress lifts to reveal all the frou-frou underneath! I added some rhinestone to the dress and a sparkly heart shaped buckle to the velvet bow on the hat. Please look at the oh-so-very-French velvet band around her neck - the original one.

The dancer is set in this theatre shadow box, lined with paper called 'gypsy'. Lots of rhinestone, altered vintage brooches, fabric roses in the background - all it needs is the smell of heady perfume and an audience!!

My friend Lindie is arranging a Burlesque evening and the proceeds of the sale of this shadowbox theatre will go towards the charity of the evening. Full details are on the Facebook page : http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=157545357637668

All proceeds go to Konsolidariteit Helpende Hand, a charity organisation that assists women and children.
