Classic Halloween thrills and chills with Odelia Opium’s Corona Cabaret!

Roman Ackley for Odelia Opium Corona Cabaret by Suzanne Forbes Oct 29 2020From Odelia Opium’s “Velvet Vampires” show, the ridiculously sexy Roman Ackley doing BOB FOSSE DRACULA!!

I didn’t know I needed this until I saw it. You absolutely never know what you’ll see on a streaming show, and there are wonderful surprises. This performance utterly lifted my heart, and I hope the drawing conveys some of that feeling. Check out Mr. Ackley on Insta here and on his own site here. He does fire, circus and cabaret!

Always a joy to see Demi Noire, a very busy burlesque performer based in the UK. Her insta is here, and her upcoming concept at the Bridge Theater, Black Burlesque Revue (December 2020) here.

She did slinky moves, then put on her 3D glasses and ate popcorn. Her Vampira look is UNCANNY. Domino Barbeau on Insta here, her site here, and her Barbeau’s Bat Cave here.

Vintage beauties from the UK: Marianne Cheesecake and Odelia Opium!

Marianne Cheesecake for Corona Cabaret 6 bySuzanne Forbes Sept 4 2020I love Marianne Cheesecake!

She is hilarious and charming, and one of the most beautiful humans I have ever seen in person. When I saw she was in the lineup for UK-based Corona Cabaret #6, I immediately grabbed a ticket. As always, she was delightful to watch! My previous drawing of her is here, and her website is here. Follow her on insta here!

Odelia Opium for Corona Cabaret 6 by Suzanne Forbes Sept 4 2020The Corona Cabaret hostess Odeila Opium has the most wonderful period look.

And that beautiful Moon seat/prop was in her house, right in the hallway! Miss Opium has a collection of incredible costumes, sells costumes and accessories for burlesque performers and performs in and produces events, like the Corona Cabaret.

As always, I am so grateful to my Patrons on Patreon, whose monthly financial support makes it possible for me to work safely at home as I document the creative adaptations of performers in year one of COVID-19.
