Hi! You are watching watchmojo.com and I am Velma Candyass. And today I am going to give you some hot tips on how to do a really good strip tease. One of the first things you should keep in mind is bringing a few of your boys along. Invite Jose, Smirnoff, Jamieson, Jack Daniels or Baileys, Prince Igor but you know, he is a little rough around the edges. And have a good slug and then you are ready to go.
One of the other things that you should think about is, of course, costume. The more you have a costume, the easier it is to strip because if you look good, you feel good. Anything could be a costume. If you like a white shirt, little bobby socks, leaning up against the fridge having lots of food, whip cream; that is a costume right there. A nice skirt, a corset; that is always a burlesque classic you cannot go wrong with that. A feather bower really helps in terms of doing a strip tease. It really just works the whole body. You can stretch it up. You can play around. You can emphasize different parts of your body. How can we live without fans in the world of burlesque? It is one of the most feminine and really lovely things to use in burlesque dance. Because, of course, it hides the whole body and you can play with how you are presenting your body to the audience.
And of course, in the world of burlesque, we love pasties. So, pasties as little covers for the nipples and you can use them and it creates a lot of fun. Gloves are probably one of the best things to have because it is such a feminine thing to use for strip tease. You could play. It emphasizes your arms, your hands and just the act of taking off a glove is so much fun.
