As many of you will know the last weekend was Erotica at Olympia and HOB was out in force! We were absolutely honoured this year to be running the first ever LGBT Stage along side teaching Burlesque on the Cabaret Stage and manning our own House of Burlesque stall. After the fun of Erotica last year I knew we had to make a big splash - the event is full of the exotic, the beautiful, the sexy, the kinky and the down-right bizarre so a strong imagination was needed! I wanted to bring something to the event that people could enjoy and have fun with and I think we did it. Our stand was full of beautiful genuine burlesque showgirls clad in HOB Sponsors Kiss Me Deadly’s stunning lingerie doing live performances every 30 minutes along side HOB star Chloe Hannah Lloyd doing her incredible hula-hoop and contortion. We also had installed a gorgeous Victorian bath filled with 12,000 rose petals for the performers to frolic in and be photographed - it certainly pulled a massive crowd!
Upstairs on the LGBT stage I wanted a stage show that would be fun, outrageous, real and entertaining as well as relevant. Our stunning performers Dave the Bear, A’dora Derriere, Fancy Chance, Emelia Holdaway and the Trannyshack Girlz were the perfect balance of fun and sexiness with rollerskating Doris Days, Hairy Pussycat Dolls, Drag Kings, Prince, Frustrated Frogs, Madonna and plenty of whipped cream.
Please stay tuned for some great links to footage from the event, photo’s articles… See you next year!
