I somehow didn’t care to dress for Halloween, but if there’s a promise of the undead tantalizing me with atypical tricks I’m prepared. D20 Burlesque performed at Parkside Lounge in all their cadaverous yet shapely glory before a packed room of entranced onlookers dressed for the occasion. Themed attire optional, and I ended up wearing black, resembling an intruding vampire, but had fun circling my eyes with shades of lipstick to look something like the zombs in the promo below. Founded by Anja Keister, “D20 Burlesque is not a set troupe, but rather a show where an ever-changing cast of burlesque performers come to perform acts themed around things that they enjoy and indulge in..”
I’ll never see zombies the same.
