Kansas City Burlesque Festival

Kansas City Burlesque Festival

Recently, I was invited to photograph the Kansas City Burlesque Festival hosted by Burlesque Downtown Underground group. This year was fantastic and featured many local and international performers. 

Let me tell you, the show did not disappoint. 

One of my favorite things to do in Kansas City is to attend burlesque shows. This year I was invited to photograph a portion of the Seventh Annual Burlesque Festival hosted by the BDU, otherwise known as the Burlesque Downtown Underground.

Performers attended from across the globe to preform for the audience and for the chance to win the infamous title of Kansas City Burlesque Festival Queen. I ended up photographing the opening show and the late night stage strut shows.

It featured beautiful acts, and luxurious costumes, and even some of our favorite comic / movie characters. One of the acts, included a boylesque performer rocking the theme from Rocky Horror Picture Show.
