6. Indigo Blue
(Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2011)
When I try to list Indigo’s achievements and the full extent of her contribution, I hardly know where to start. She has worked tirelessly for the benefit of the burlesque community and her students for years, and BurlyCon – one of her greatest gifts – gets bigger and better every year.
Her year as Queen could not have ended on a bigger, more spectacular high. I can’t wait for the footage of her farewell performance – make that religious experience – to become available; I will add it as soon as it does. She chose to share the stage at that special moment with a number of her peers, and I feel certain that it will be remembered as one of BHoF’s all time epic moments.
Other 2012 appearances included Tease-O-Rama, the Helsinki Burlesque Festival, the Vancouver Burlesque Festival and the Texas Burlesque Festival. She also celebrated ten years as a member of the fabulous Atomic Bombshells, and performed in two amazing Seattle productions: Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland and Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker.
