It all began on the Friday, when the show took place at the beautiful Södra Teatern at Mosebacke. The tickets had sold out completely!

I wore a vintage dress from the 50s, that I got from vintagebluemoon on Etsy. It's black with red details.
Armitage Shanks was our witty conférencière for the evening. And the performers were:
This was probably the best burlesque show I have ever seen, and after it ended, the party continued! I fell into bed sometime around 3 am, after being harassed by two French guys on my way home, who tried to give me Snickers and Tequila (but thankfully I got rescued by Velma Voluptuous), and then by some other man on the subway who of course had to get off at the same station as me *le big sigh*...
The next day I went to a masterclass in vaudeville, held by Mr Pustra, who turned out to be as lovely in person as he is on stage. It was very inspiring to hear him talk about the history of vaudeville, and give us some tips on how to become better artists. That evening the burlesque festival continued with a big party at Nalen. Since I had to get up really early Sunday morning, to work and perform during the last day of the festival, I decided to skip that one though. My pain demon was a bit upset too, so I wanted to calm him down as much as I could until it was my turn to take the stage. But more about that on Wednesday!
