Venus Mantrapp, the vivacious vixen,! A titillating combination of sass, humor and sex appeal, Venus Mantrapp has been working the crowd since 2010! She headlined the sold out BOOlesque 2013 Presented by Jim Thorpe Burlesque, Ltd., performed at the inaugural Fierce: International Queer Burlesque Festival in Columbus, Ohio in 2013 and is a regular performer at Red Hot After Dark at the Allentown Brew Works.
Lily has been a member of the Tri-State area Burlesque scene for over 6 years. She was recently selected to perform as the closing act of The Main Event at The 2013 Great Burlesque Exposition in Boston. She has performed at many well known venues including: The Slipper Room, Webster Hall, Brick City Burlesque, Roxy N Dukes, Shampoo, The Bowery Poetry Club, Sideshows by the Seashore, Union Hall, AnimeNext, Anime Boston, Otakon, The Steampunk World’s Fair & AnimeUSA.

Lauded for her performances by the likes of Felicia Day and Edgar Wright, its safe to say Lily is a unique burlesque performer with a wide range of fans.
Scarlet Stepford began performing burlesque nearly four years ago when she met friend and fellow performer Lily Stitches. Stitches’ enthusiasm for the art form fascinated Stepford, who was largely unfamiliar with its beauty and charm, and this began Stepford’s journey through the process of self-education with the help and support of friends. She eventually took her first stage performance head-on at the New York Pinup Club at The Slipper Room, Manhattan, solidifying her desire to become a full-time performer. Scarlet has since performed all over the Tri-State area, including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, and New Jersey. She has performed with Cosplay Burlesque, The NY Pinup Club, The NJ Burlesque Showcase, Epic Win Burlesque, Original Cyn, Sharkbite Sideshow, The Luvely Rae’s One Night Stand and Trash at Webster Hall.
Vonka has been performing Burlesque for nearly two years with Ink & Paint. This Neon Nymph can be found cosplaying her favorite characters all over the East Coast. She plans to one day rule the Earth.
