It’s a been a long time and I’ve been a pretty busy performer. I’ll be honest, I lost the log in information for this blog and so it made it a bit difficult to post.
But now I’m back.
In this absence, I became a makeup artist at Sephora and was considering doing vegan burlesque makeup tutorials on youtube. What do you think?
Vegan Burlesque: How long have you been doing burlesque?
Missy Aggravation: I’ve been doing it for 4 years now.
VB: Do you have a favorite routine you’ve done?
VB: How long have you been vegan?
VB What made you decide to be vegan?
VB: Favorite vegan drink/food?
VB: How do you deal with the non-vegan aspects of burlesque (such as boas/feather fans)?
VB: If you could change one thing about burlesque, what would it be?
VB: Where can we see more of you?

Since the next D20 Burlesque show is fairly soon (Saturday, August 24th) I spent today walking around NY putting out postcards for the show.
Although this is a tedious task, it is fun because it gives me a chance to really walk around the city, find new stores, and get to eat delicious vegan food noms I don’t usually get to eat! Today consisted of checking up on the raffle prizes from the Compleat Strategist near Herald Square and then heading down to Union square/Bowery area and walking to various areas to drop off the postcards.
The exciting part of the trip today was a stop at Atlas Cafe (on Bowery Between 4th and 5th ave) where I finally got to try Vegan Treats’ canollis! Danielle Konya, the head of the Vegan Treats Bakery , posted about this new addition to their list of delicious baked goods about a month ago, but since they are located in PA, and only have limited runs to NYC for certain treats, I wasn’t sure when I would get a chance to try them.
Well, it was today. Sitting in Atlas Cafe while reading, having just finished a vegan philly steak sandwich, sipping a Boylans root beer and then biting into one of these was definitely the pick me up I needed to finish the postcard placing!

After a long night of performing, nothing feels better than a good shower to get the sweat and glitter off from writhing and grinding on stage. But what could make this experience better? Why, Magic Missile and Fireball Soaps!
Think Geek, a really really awesome store sells these charming soaps and really goes into the details to let you know that these soaps don’t contain any gross animal byproducts and are cruelty free. Here is the information they have on their page:
Magic Missile and Fireball Soaps are NOT tested on animals, and are Vegan safe.
Ingredients: Propylene Glycol (Comes from glycerol, a natural moisturizing material) Water Sodium Stearate (Natural fatty component to soap, vegetable base) Glycerin (Humectant, naturally produced during soapmaking process) Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Derived from Coconut Oil, natural cleansing agent) Sorbitol (Found in ripe berries from mountain ash trees, adds creaminess) Sodium Myristate (Foaming agent from vegetable fatty acids, natural organic acid) Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Coconut oil base, Mild surfactant) Triethanolamine (Emulsifier, made from vegetable fat) Vitamin E . No Artificial Preservatives

Last tuesday I got to perform in NY Pinup Club’s second edition of Hufflbuff Burlesque which was a ball since this will be some of my last chances to perform Harry Potter themed burlesque.
I got to perform my Dolores Umbridge act again, and came up with a new Partronus act which I absolutely love. Hopefully the video of it came out well so I’ll be able to show it around in case I never get to perform it again.

In my last post, Ricky commented that there is an etsy shop selling vegan ostrich feather. I was skeptical at first thinking this would be another seller saying “well, these came off my pet ostrich, so totes vegan, right?” but looking at the site, I can see that they are crafty renditions!
See more at Montabahn’s shop here!

This is our new kitten. She is not named yet as we are having trouble deciding between Eartha Kitten or Sir Ian McKitten (pronounced Serina). We got her to help mellow out our original kitty, Catt Damon. It’s working, but she is also keeping me horribly distracted by all the cute pouncing and cuddling!

HAPPY (AMERICAN) INDEPENDENCE DAY!
Heat up the grill and break out the veggie dogs and vegan grillers!
This photo was taken courtesy of Hazel Honeysuckle backstage at the Rhinestone Follies’ Patriot Dames show. My vegan spin was a glittery tulle bustle (instead of feathers) and a faux feather hat ornament created using a stolen floral decoration from a party.
