Hello everyone!

So, we all love ACen, yes? And we all love some of the great shows that ACen puts on.

How would YOU be interested in helping out with a NEW event?

I'm looking for a few talented Ladies and Gents to help out with ACen's VERY FIRST Burlesque Extravaganza!

We're looking for both men and women (over 18 please!) who are familiar with the art of Burlesque and Vaudeville style Comedy, who have acts that are relivant to Anime, Gaming and every sort of nerdy and awesome thing out there!

So, Burlesque Dancers, Comedy Acts, Bellydancers, Hula-hoopers, Baton Twirlers, Fire Eaters, Floor Show preformers, TALENTED PEOPLE! THIS MEANS YOU!

If interested, or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to post here, or send an email to LolaLessThanThree@gmail.com so we can get the ball rolling on what is sure to be a FANTASTIC event!

If you have an act together, please include your name, date of birth, costume you will be using, music you want, and either a write-up, or video of your act, and email it to me at the above address!

Let's make this AWESOME!

Sounds like a blast! I'm not particularly talented in anything like that, but I'd definitely be interesting in attending :3

So would a series of songs covered on an acoustic guitar be acceptable? I'm not too sure what a ""Burlesque" is, but I have musical talent.

Unfortunately, it needs to be more showy than that ;_;

For those of you unsure, here's a few samples from Wikipedia's entry on American Burlesque

"American burlesque is a genre of variety show. Derived from elements of Victorian burlesque, music hall and minstrel shows, burlesque shows in America became popular in the 1860s and evolved to feature ribald comedy (lewd jokes) and female striptease. By the early 20th century, burlesque in America was presented as a populist blend of satire, performance art, music hall and adult entertainment, featuring striptease and broad comedy acts."

"The entertainment was presented often in cabarets and clubs, as well as music halls and theatres. Performers, usually female, often created elaborate tableaux with lush, colorful costumes, mood-appropriate music, and dramatic lighting; novelty acts, such as fire breathing or contortionists, might be added to enhance the impact of their performance. The genre traditionally encompassed a variety of acts: in addition to the striptease artistes, there was some combination of chanson singers, comedians, mime artists, and dancing girls, all delivered in a satiric style with a saucy edge. The striptease element of burlesque became subject to extensive local legislation, leading to a theatrical form that titillated without falling foul of censors"

So, if you've ever seen the play "Cabaret" or the movie "Burelsque" or have ever been to a Drag Show, that's what we're looking for. Big, Showy, and AWESOME!

I can bellydance and swing dance, but I don't know how helpful I would be (I am running 4 panels that weekend, so I would only be able to prepare insofar as I show up on time, I guess. And there appears to be a bellydancing panel on the schedule so there are probably going to be plenty of more talented people there...). If I can think of any other acts I could do, I'll let you know (or if there are other ways I can help out, do tell). This looks like fun, so I hope it goes well!

This sounds very much like a masquerade-like event. Does ACen not have an official masquerade? Two of the other cons I frequent (Katsu was my first time this year, but yeah) Katsucon and Otakon have official masqs and they're a lot of fun. I really don't have any talent to offer to this, but if there's any help I can offer I can do something, like hand out fliers or something? Unless the gofers have that taken care of already... I wouldn't want to be tied to it the whole time either lol.

Ah I see. I've only been to ACen once (2012) so I wasn't able to discover all it has to offer. Maybe this year I'll see all of the con! (one would wish lol) Thanks.
