Scarlett James is known to have the most impressive costumes, but did you know that these are her own creations? And yes ! The artist has many talents including that of the creation and designs of costumes. Each of her costumes is a special moment she shares with her mother. Both of them put a lot of energy and time into these costumes, which makes them so special and valuable to Scarlett.
Each piece is worked with meticulousness, the stones are put one by one by hand, to obtain works of arts and lights. This attention to detail that can be seen on stage when she is performing, each piece is totally unique. Having another person make costumes such as those would be far too expensive in materials and time. To obtain such spectacular results, there is a lot of work to think upstream; the costume is part of the number, it must work in symbiosis with the choreography, the corset for example must give the impression that it comes undone without any effort during the number.
Each costume represents Scarlett James and her personality, they are personal and unique pieces, they exist to transmit her emotions to the audience during the different performances. They come from her and as she says herself “it can not be more Scarlett James than that” .
If you want to admire these costumes created by the artist while she shines on stage, you can do so at the Montreal Burlesque Festival next October.

For whom are his last thoughts a few minutes before the show starts? For the public? For something else? According to the people the feelings are different, some are very stressed. For others, it’s the excitement that takes over.
The show must go well, it must please the public. The spectators must be receptive, there must be an exchange between them and the artist, it is the essence of a burlesque show: the guests are part of the show, they do not come only to assist passively.
Some artists focus on their choreography: we must not forget the steps, the movements must be fluid, continuous, look natural to the eyes of the audience. It is through his movements that the artist transmits the feelings of his character and it is thanks to the feelings that the public is immersed in the story.
Each artist wants to mark his audience, to make them react.
Other people pay particular attention to their accessories: the chair must be placed in the center, the fans must be close to the scene but not visible from the public otherwise there is no surprise, of course! Someone must take care of bringing the bathrobe or glove box to the artist at the right time. Indeed, accessories are important, they are an integral part of the show.
Each artist has his own preoccupations before going on stage, you will be able to note it through these feelings of artists:
” You always have stress, but it’s a good stress because once on stage that’s what will make you really live the moment ”
Foxy Lexxi, burlesque artist.
” When I started years ago I was very stressed and excited at the same time, […], after several shows I realized that I was stressing too much for nothing, today I am very zen to go out on stage ”
Lily Lynx, pole dancing dancer and burlesque artist.
” It’s one of my favorite moments of the evening, sit down, get ready, see my colleagues, eat with them and joke with them ”
Audrey Ivory, burlesque artist.

Qu’est ce ressent un artiste avant d’entrer sur scène ?
Pour qui sont ses dernières pensées quelques minutes avant le début du show ? Pour lui ? Pour le public ? Pour quelque chose d’autre ? Selon les personnes les sentiments sont différents, certains sont très stressés. Pour d’autres, c’est l’excitation qui prend le dessus. Le spectacle doit bien se dérouler, il doit plaire au public. Les spectateurs doivent être réceptifs, il doit y avoir un échange entre eux et l’artiste, c’est l’essence même d’un show burlesque : les invités font partie du show, ils ne viennent pas que pour assister passivement. Certains artistes se focalisent sur leur chorégraphie : il ne faut pas oublier les pas, les mouvements doivent être fluides, continus, paraître naturels aux yeux des spectateurs.
C’est à travers ses mouvements que l’artiste transmet les sentiments de son personnage et c’est grâce aux sentiments que le public s’imprègne de l’histoire. Chaque artiste désire marquer ses spectateurs, il souhaite les faire réagir. D’autres personnes accordent une attention particulière à leurs accessoires : la chaise doit être placée au centre, les éventails doivent être à proximité de la scène mais sans être visibles depuis le public sinon il y a pas d’effet de surprise, évidemment ! Quelqu’un doit s’occuper d’apporter le peignoir ou la boite à gants à l’artiste au bon moment. En effet, les accessoires sont importants, ils font partie intégrante du spectacle.
Chaque artiste a ses propres préoccupations avant d’entrer sur scène, tu pourras le constater a travers ces quelques ressentis d’artistes :
« T’as toujours le stress, mais c’est un bon stress parce qu’une fois sur scène c’est ce qui va faire que tu vas vraiment vivre le moment »
Foxy Lexxi, artiste burlesque.
« Quand j’ai commencé il y a des années j’étais très stressée et excitée en même temps, […], après plusieurs shows j’ai réalisé que je me stressais trop pour rien, aujourd’hui je suis rendue très zen avant de sortir sur scène »
Lily Lynx, danseuse de pole dance et artiste burlesque.
« C’est un de mes moments préférés de la soirée, m’asseoir, me préparer, revoir mes collègues, manger avec eux et plaisanter avec eux »
Audrey Ivori, artiste burlesque.
