Farewell, Eva Avarice!

Good Mourning,

Last night was such a wonderful evening. I am coming into my own a bit more! I am preparing a new routine to be my first complicated routine...the first, hopefully, impressive one! I looove the venue and the crowd. I have friends come to shows to support me, and that means a lot. It was our 'burlesque send off' for the woman that currently runs the "7 Deadly Sins Revue", Eva Avarice! I won't lie, I have not known her long, but I have connected with her so much. She has been amazing, a godsend, she truly has. I'm not sure I could still be doing this without her. A best friend in such a short time, I adore her. I absolutely adore her! She has spent hours and hours with me, supporting, helping me, teaching me so much. Words can barely describe how much I appreciate all that she has done!

The two women that I personally know (not just performers that I watch online, tv...etc) are leaving/have left.. I have the other girls to help, so I am not alone, but these two women have influenced me so greatly, I'm not sure what I'll do! They both are incredibly talented, and I can't wait to see them shine as they move up in the world!

Thank you, Sugar!

Stay Spooktacular,

Vera Voodoo.

Farewell, Green Queen.

Hello Boils and Ghouls!

Tonight(due to the fact that is is past midnight, it is practically last night) was very bitter/sweet for me. On one hand, I got to see friends and family in the Tulsa area, see an amazing burlesque show, and see my friend Kira again... on the other, this will probably be the last time I see her before she leaves and then returns for a visit sometime from L.A. The distance we live from each other never really allows much time to hang out... which is something I regret

It was definitely a great farewell show, a lot of hard work paying off, for everyone involved. I was the pickup artist, you know, the panty wrangler that cleans and sets up the stage in-between each of the burlesque performers' numbers! I felt pretty glad that I was able to do that! I had the opportunity to meet some amazing women, some wonderful performers! I think it was such a great experience for me! I really love this world that I'm emerging into, and am trying to soak up as much as I can... each glittery piece that I can grab onto.

This show was amazing, and I'm so glad I made it to the show the night before. This has been a very Green weekend, and I'm sure it will be my last for a while.. so I'm going to have to savor it!

I owe Kira for almost completely talking me into starting burlesque. She has definitely always been a very inspiring person to many. She has helped me with a lot over the years, and just keep giving. This weekend she gave me the best advice that anyone could ever give me... and the fact that she blindly believes in me and supports me really speaks louder than any words could.

Tonight was like magic, it just makes me want to delve deeper into this world. I'm really falling in love with it... Sending Kira Von Sutra off was such a grand event. We absolutely love you and wish you all of the best!

Stay Spooktacular, Dear-heart,

Vera Voodoo.

Fly in the Ointment.


Well, some events have come up that are beginning to take all of my free time. I'm very worried of what this will do to my new set of scheduling, activities and goals. I'm rather disappointed in many aspects in the event. I'm really torn, heartbroken to what has happened, worried about the party involved, but also, I think selfishly; of myself. I feel that I finally have some direction to go in, and then when someone cannot take care of their messes, I must drop everything to help them with it. Vera Voodoo may be odd, macabre, spooky, but... she's not heartless. I'm just afraid that I rip out my heart and offer it to all who may need it.. just a smidge too much.. and then it just gets trampled on in the end. What a thank you, right?!

I'm so torn, I fear how much this will interfere with my new burlesque adventure. I love the people involved, but hate being tread on ONLY because I'm trying to help.

Sadly; that is all for now.

Stay Spooktacular,

Vera Voodoo.

Another show, another night.

Why, Hello Boils and Ghouls!

Tonight was a fabulous night! We had a rehearsal in the afternoon and then had a pretty awesome show at the Prohibition Room! I have never been there before, but it was really fun! I actually had some friends come out, some surprised me and popped by from Tulsa! It definitely gave me quite a boost! I'm getting the hang out performing and finding who I'm to become onstage. My head is reeling from the excitement and the success of our show... I'm in this with some really amazing girls! We ended up going to iHop afterwards, it was a nice way to eat and unwind. I am really liking the direction that my life seems to be headed.

Thank you all so much for your support.

Stay Spooktacular,

Vera Voodoo.

Biting The Apple

Hey Boils and Ghouls, 

Tonight concluded the two night show; Biting The Apple; Redefining Red: Exploring the Color Of Eros. What a lovely two-night erotica/art show, indeed! Red just so happens to be my favorite color! Despite the insanity that is the behind the scenes of five performing acts sharing a tiny stockroom for a dressing room and just the flurry behind a burlesque show.. it went very well. Our troupe did our Group performance each night, and our solos were split up between the two nights. I got to do my new and improved Solo, which unfortunately had some behind the scene kinks, which wasn't even our fault,  but I still had a nice response! So thank you for everyone who cheered and supported us. We have quite a few performances left in the next month or two. Please check my calendar for dates and details!!

Until then; 

     Stay Spooktacular, 
                     Vera Voodoo.

Hello again Boils and Ghouls!

I have been getting ready all day... for my first burlesque performance!

I'm pretty excited and have been going over both of my routines like you wouldn't believe! I have to get my costumes together and curl my hair, after that, it's makeup, and then going to the venue.

I'm extremely excited, but not really sure what to expect! There's that cinch in my gut, but I know I'll knock 'em dead tonight! Tonight shall be interesting indeed!

I'll let you know how it goes.

Until then; 

     Stay Spooktacular,

Death is only the beginning..

Hello Boils and Ghouls, 

I'm beginning a new chapter in my life. I'm becoming a burlesque dancer! Last night was my first introduction as Vera Voodoo! 

After admiring the art for so long, I have longed to do it... but never thought I would be able to. Certain events inspired me to do more in my life and being pushed from a few people, including my long time love and husband, I am entering into this new world!

At this point, I have studied a lot, all but joined a revue here in my city, and am now working on my first routine! The darling inside the revue who has been helping me has been so supportive and helped me hone my creative skills and we made an adorable costume!

I went to my first gig last night, and along with the other new girl in the revue was the pickup artist for the girls! It was a group member's birthday show, and we made a sexy cake out of her, sprinkled her with goodies and spoon-fed it all to the crowd, it was a steamy mess of half-naked hotness!

I'm keeping this to keep track of where I start, and where I end. It shall be an interesting show. 

Dropping dead for now, Ghoulies. 

Until then; 

     Stay Spooktacular, 
                     Vera Voodoo.
