Burlesque Costume Ideas for Women
We first became aware of Holloway Smith Noir when we heard about their environmentally conscious upcycling. Their beautiful creations are what made us friends. We like pretty things.

While the black vintage lace eye mask is handmade from chantilly lace. The black eye mask is created from silk satin binding and silk ribbon ties. Nothing says mystery and allure like black lace.
If you’re lucky enough to have fiery hair (below) you can team these lovely items with a matching black merkin and statement headwear reminiscent of an Edgar Allan Poe poem. Otherwise you can continue the classic look with seamed stockings so that when you strip down, you’re matching. Just like your mama taught you.
This pair create a beautifully intriguing duo. They’re perfect for showing a little less to imply a little more on stage. These nipple pasties and eye mask are also a naughty but nice addition to any boudoir wardrobe.
A perfect first pair of nipple pasties and eye mask to arouse …curiosity. Wear with sexy undercrackers and jewellery, beneath a night dress or with nothing much at all.

Burlexe is a sensational London burlesque show inspired by the women who created the genre and perform the art. It fuses burlesque performance with storytelling, dancing with acting.
Holloway Smith Noir have been friends of Burlexe since our fledgling days. Their burlesque costume ideas are a constant inspiration and we hope to collaborate with them more in the future.
