Burlesque Showreel, Act 4

A reworked version of my third burlesque solo, with earlier mask removal (as this routine is hard enough without sod all peripheral vision and compromised breathing) and an improved costume, as my earlier attempt at light-up pasties - while a painstaking wiring job - were sadly too dim to really make an impact.

Burlesque Showreel, Act 1

With nothing else to do burlesque-wise, I've decided to try putting together a showreel of my solo acts for hopefully freer times, and I'm starting with my debut act.
