On these cold winter nights, it can be difficult be get yourself out the door without hearing Dean Martin whispering somewhere in your subconscious 'baby, it's cold outside', tempting you to just hibernate for the winter wrapped up in your blanket with a hot toddy.
Sugar Blue Burlesque promises that if you make it off your couch on Saturday the 5th of August they will raise your temperature with their 'A Decade of Decadence' celebration.
Based in our very own Perth, Sugar Blue Burlesque opened its doors in 2007 and rapidly became one of the leaders in the Australian Burlesque Community. The infamous troupe have been tantalising and teasing their patrons for the past ten years and this event is set to be one of their best yet.
The night's proceedings will be hosted by the incredibly talented MC Magnus Danger Magnus who will introduce us to over 30 performers from around the globe. You will also be treated to the captivating sounds of the Fringe World Festival nominee 10-piece Jazz band the Perth Cabaret Collective.
The event offers us a chance to step into this magical world and for one night only lose yourself in the sultry glitz and glamour of burlesque. The amazing David Wooley, who is a well-known Vintage Glamor Photographer, will be on hand to help you preserve this memorable night with his beautiful photo booth and you will be treated to an array of vintage stalls for you to peruse in the pop-up market. You will also have a chance to showcase some of your own best moves on the dancefloor afterwards.

Dita Von Teese is famously quoted as saying "I advocate glamour. Every day. Every minute".
I think we would all agree that we could do with a bit more glamour in our lives and this show promises to deliver that and so much more.
