Calling All Otakus!
From the same people who brought you the Sci-fi, Video Game and Star Wars Burlesque Shows, now comes Anime Burlesque. These burlesque dancers take on (just to take it off) some of your favorite female anime characters.
“Devil’s Playground returned to Bordello on January 8 for Anime Babes, a burlesque show dedicated to Japanese animation favorites. Characters from Pokemon, Tokyo Mew Mew, Fullmetal Alchemist, Sailor Moon, Speed Racer and Neon Genesis Evangelion made an appearance throughout the night. (LA Weekly)”
But wait, they don’t have Faye (Cowboy Bebop)?! Come on! They wouldn’t even have to sex-up her outfit either since her gravity defying short shorts which barely supported by suspenders, cropped shirt are revealing enough to start with. Well here’s hoping they have a part two, since they have done that with previous shows. Who would you want to see burlesqued up if they have a part two?
I’m happy that Devil’s Playground does these Geeky Burlesque shows but to be honest I feel like I’ve seen better cosplay at cons #imjustsayin.
