I just realized that it’s been 6 months since Burly Bundle first came online. I am so excited about this! It was 4 years ago when I had the vague idea of Burly Bundle. 1 year ago when I started working diligently on the business and now here we are at 6 months in business. Truly a dream come true for me!
I simply LOVE burlesque. EVERTHING about burlesque; the costumes, the pasties, rhinestones and feathers, and the performances but most of all, the people who come from so many backgrounds and with so many valid and valuable stories they show and tell through the art of burlesque. This is one of the reasons that I first had the idea to start Burly Bundle, to open up the wide world of burlesque to even more people, so that they can experience even just a fraction of what I have. Or maybe, they just wanna make a set of pasties on their own. That’s so cool and It’s All Good!
From my own experience starting in burlesque, back in 2013, I was in awe, excited, overwhelmed, and a good bit scared to share THAT much of myself with others in the room let alone with many, many others while on stage. Thankfully, Effies Club Follies, the troupe I grew Misty Tetons up in, was an incredibly sharing, nurturing, encouraging and supportive troupe that was perfect in helping me develop my numbers, select music, help with choreography, costuming, make up and so much more.
With Burly Bundle I want to share the costume accessories side of burlesque within our community and to a wider audience. Sure, I have a cheeky goal of “Pasties in every household” and I also want to hold a space for burlesque creations, one craft bundle at a time. I absolutely thrive/wish-to-always-live in the costume creation realm and this is one way I get to share that love with others. I hope Burly Bundle will become an avenue for people who are Burly-curious about some of the items performers wear and that they themselves will get to experience what it is like to create and wear the beautiful accessories that are part of burlesque.
Thank you to all our Burly Bundlers, the Performers who have help spread the word about us in their shows and to everyone else who has supported us, liked us, shared us and made this 6 month beginning a true joy to experience. I’m Sooooooo excited about the next 6 months!!!
You ALL have my heartfelt gratitude and genuine thanks!
