Want to do something fun today? Take a few minutes to figure out what your Burlesque name would be.
I know what you’re thinking: what is she talking about? Why would I want to do that? Well, honestly, I don’t really know why other than it’s just something to make you laugh. And don’t we all need a little laugh on a Monday morning?
Evelyn didn’t spend long in the world of Burlesque in my novel, As the Liquor Flows, but the time she did spend was perhaps one of my favorite chapters in the whole novel. One of them. *wink wink*
So how do you find your burlesque name? It’s as simple as finding your burlesque persona. Not to mention, there are plenty of rules and tricks you can employ to find the name that fits for you.
A CRAYOLA OF COLOR: Whether is Miss Indigo Blue or Pearle Noire, using colors to inspire your burlesque names can highlight the tone of your style, like the lovely Violet Blaze, Amber Topaz, Ruby Jones, Amethyst Jade, or Sapphire Vivian.
BOOZY BROADS: Miss Dirty Martini is one of the most recognizable names in burlesque; however, Martini has also been somewhat overused throughout the years. Luckily, there are plenty of alcoholic beverages hitting the bar tops on a weekly basis.
BILINGUAL LOVELIES: It’s also common to use another language in your burlesque name. Just ask Michelle L’amour. There are so many words and synonyms out there for sexy, beautiful.
WHAT TO AVOID: Kitten, Kitty, Vixen, Honey, Von, Lux, Deluxe, Lola, deVille, Pinky, Femme, or Belle
