It's that time of year again. The weather is warm, bodies are tanned and everyone is at the gym bulking or slimming. For some of us, we have a big event coming up and we are starting to prep. Prepping our bodies, choreographies, and costumes because.....it's almost time for the SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS!!!
Performing at Mardi Gras has been some of my favourite memories. My all time favourite person to perform for at this event is Paulini from Paulini Productions. She is Canberra's resident drag queen, fierce sambista and all around beautiful soul. In 2015, her float won Best Choreography at Mardi Gras and it was an incredible experience to have joined her on that journey.
Here are some of the fabulous behind the scenes pics of my Mardi Gras experiences dancing for the glorious Queen Paulini. Also, the dancers are from all over Australia including those from Kokoloco, Subsdance and Rhythm Brazil.
If you have been to Mardi Gras we would love to hear your stories and see your photos!
Now is the time where I talk about Ditchy and how we can help you out for your Mardi Gras get up and all other dance and DRAG stylings.
We 100% support the drag community and want Ditchy to be a place where queens can go to hire drag costumes, wigs and all, from other current or retired queens. Their costume needs are far beyond the average dance stage and we want to help. So if you are part of the drag community or have friends that perform drag, let them know they have a place to rent out their costumes, wigs, shoes etc. We also have some great costumes they may love that are not traditionally drag but are FAB-U-LOUS anyway.
We hope to see you at Mardi Gras and are looking forward to dressing you soon!
