I was very nervous about wearing one of my favorite dresses to the event, considering that it is vintage and drunken Finns are not the most considerate of people... Thankfully the dress is still in one piece, although looking back on it I really should have been smarter and not have taken the risk. Oh well, you live and you learn!
Attending the show made me wonder what the burlesque scene is like in London. It has been really wonderful to attend burlesque shows monthly during my stay in Finland. I hope the scene is as active and fun in England. It has been a treat to be able to dress up and attend these type of events on a regular basis and I hope to continue doing so in the future.
