Finishing School – CHOICES! Creative Costuming & How to Leave Them Gagging with Aria Delanoche, Best Debut 2018, Most Classic 2018, and Second Runner Up 2022
“Choices! Creative Costuming & How to Leave them Gagging” is a lecture-style workshop designed to help you make more intentional costuming choices & create fierce, gag-worthy burly looks. Presented in the cheeky form of Aria’s Ten Commandments of Costuming, the class covers theoretic approaches to maximizing the effectiveness of a burlesque costume. Students learn about color theory, character refining processes, juxtaposition, and more while guided by an example-rich PowerPoint presentation.
Every choice we make in the creation process, from vision to design to performance, is an opportunity to express our character, emphasize our movement, and present jaw-dropping dazzle. Learn how to guide yourself to smart choices and make your costumes werk for you! Please bring a notebook and pen so you may scribble these secrets. There is no movement, so wear what you please. You can also come prepared with questions about your individual costuming conundrums for the Q&A after class.
Aria Delanoche is an award-winning & well-traveled performer known for her innovative and extravagant costuming. She also carries years of professional fashion styling under her belt. In 2018 she was awarded “Best Debut” and “Most Classic” at the Burlesque Hall of Fame, took the title of Queen of the Striptease in 2020, and is the current reigning Duchess of Burlesque.
