"Bethany Starr: A sexy sassy lass, a rubenesque delight ready to take you on adventure to the swinging 60’s and then tantalise you with a neoclassical style that will leave you begging for one more shimmy. A lady who has busted into the burlesque scene, her journey beginning at Hootchy Kootchy under the mentorship of Miss Cherry Lashes and Misty La Moore, she has bumped and grinded on various stages and now is ready to tease you another time in a blur of glitter and a dazzle of sequins"

This siren has washed the decks of Auckland and Wellington for two years and is ready to sink her teeth into any willing audience. Winner of 'Best Butt' and 'Best Costume' (Hamilton Grand Tease 2015) and 'Best Classic' (Wellington Grand Tease 2016), Madam Mutiny is here to tease, sleaze, titillate with otherworldly beauty and moves.
Lucy Ray Belle
A bit of cheek, a handful of curves, a touch of class and a pinch of sarcasm, with a whole lot of sass for good measure! All brewed together like your favourite cup of tea to bring you: Lucy Ray Belle.
La Femme Fantail
A flirty fantail with a touch of the Femme Fatale, who will capture your attention with her cheeky moves and seductive looks. A bird of fine fancy grand plumage who will be flitting her eyelashes and her tail feathers. And one with a lot of living to do as she does everything on the fly such as the pretty fantails do. Who also, can spot a bargain at a second hand shop from a mile off, just like a magpie! Flitting into your hearts is La Femme Fantail.
The Black Swan
"Chris Olwage (A.K.A. The Black Swan) is a multi-disciplinary performance artist with a penchant for nudity, rhinestones and owning the dance floor. A trained Contemporary dancer, he has travelled the world and accrued much international acclaim as a performer. He delighted audiences with his own solo show as part of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, and even performed en pointe in front of thousands at World Pride in Toronto. A veteran of the Auckland Queerlesque circuit, and regular performer for VavaVoom Productions, the stage is his happy place, your attention his pleasure. He is sure to bring a sparkle to your eye and let loose the butterflies in your stomach. Just make sure you bring a hanky to keep those hands and forehead dry. He'll leave you hot and bothered and screaming for more."

Dante Diamante, Wellington's sparkliest gentleman of Burlesque. His dashingly deviant style is delightfully decadent, so pulling it all together for under $100 is quite a challenge! Luckily for him, he has a booty you can take to the bank.
Viola Nightshade, the toxic temptress, and Wellington's own signing siren. She is entering this competition for the second year in a a row and is back with a vengeance. Since then, at the 2016 Grand Tease Wellington heat she took home best boobs, and biggest tease. Half the height with twice the volume. This gal is trouble, wrapped in sequins, soaked in whiskey, and finished off with curves that kill, but by the time she's done you'll definitely die happy.
Pert, petite, light on her bare feet, Pixie Twist: the tiniest tease in Glamilton.
Pixie Twist discovered the joy of sarcasm and ‘scandal’ early, and her delight in being a subversive little tart has only intensified as she’s gotten older. Just as likely to be wielding feather fans as she is to be writing 'swears' on herself, you should expect the unexpected when the Pixie comes to town. With her Neo flair and ginger hair, Pixie Twist steals every eye in the room.
Saucy, sassy, sexy, and here to fire up the crowd, Mary-Jane Flame first shimmied onto the stage in 2014, studying with Hootchy Kootchy Girls under the glamourous Miss Cherry Lashes. The 2016 winner of the Best Facials Award with the Rock n Roll Circus, this curvy-licious tease has just the right balance of sugar and spice thats sure to heat up your night, and she just wants your LOVIN'!
