PHOTOS: Grandest And Gaudiest Looks From Miss Burlesque Competition

Yes — this is a thing. Since the gorgeous Dita Von Teese gave Burlesque a (more) mainstream name, the performance art has blossomed. Australia‘s most fierce (and only) Burlesque competition took place yesterday in Melbourne, bringing out Burlesque babes and dudes from far and wide. The competition combines all the main elements of the art’s performance and personality and is open to all levels: brand new, emerging, and seasoned professional.

So what’s it like? Well…a beauty pageant, sorry, competition, with really intense costumes and gowns and all the boobs, hairspray, and eyeliner a girl can stand. Basically, a more awesome beauty program — one that allows all the gaud, grandeur, jazz, and pizazz that a “scholarship program” would never stand for. We’d have given anything to be a part of this audience! Ok, ok, enough with all the talk — let’s see the pics! And after that, get your dance on with this Burlesque workout video below.
