Enjoy these photos of our new Miss Exotic World, Reigning Queen of Burlesque, Midnite Martini, who gave a stunning winning performance at last night’s Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 2014 Tournament of Tease…
21st Century Burlesque Magazine Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 2014 Coverage is sponsored by Fancy Feather.
Other winners included 1st Runner Up Medianoche, 2nd Runner Up Ginger Valentine, Best Boylesque winner Mr Gorgeous, and Best Debut winner Bonnie Fox. View the full list of results here.
In a pre-Pageant interview, Midnite Martini said her chosen act was ‘innovative [and] moody’, that she was ‘proud to have it represent me as an artist’, and that her goal was to ‘just go and have fun and do an act that will be memorable for the audience and legends. And if a tiara is placed on my head then that is a wonderful, overwhelming cherry on top.’
In the pre-Pageant interview, when asked about her plans to spread awareness of the Burlesque Hall of Fame if crowned Queen, Midnite Martini said that ‘it’s important to make the larger burlesque and non-burlesque audience aware that the museum is a year-round non-profit that needs support, not just in June when we all come to the desert for our annual visit to Mecca. It’s a good reminder that even I need, and it’s easy for all of us to just focus on the Weekender and forget about the Museum.’
