Pin Curl – Siren Santina

Kind Words from Siren Santina makin’ us blush:

“My favorite performance of the night was that of Sunny Sighed and Bal’d Lightning (Baltimore, MD) who gave us a lesson on taming an audience with live song, dance, and striptease…Sunny Sighed and Bal’d Lightning are talented, beautiful, and entertaining. I love seeing unique, genre-blending burlesque and this team brought it in full force.”

- read Siren Santina’s fun and thoughtful redux of her Burlycon trip on Pin Curl.

We’re still wearing our WWIvaD bracelets too, Siren! ;)~

Oh my goodness!  What a thrill it has been to share the stage with so much of Baltimore’s beauty!  Ruby Rockafella, Lady Miz Scarlett, Kay SeraValeria Voxx, it is an honor to know and love you all.  Thanks to Trixie Little and Mr. Gorgeous for creating this forum to highlight all the beauty we find in Baltimore everyday, and to the Ottobar where it so often comes out to shine and to Broadway Brassy for serenading me so sweetly and to the first ever Queen of Crabs, Krystal Dangsheskanky for your sexy dancing and for being such an inspirational role-model.  Thanks to the judges (Joe Meduza, Karin Tiffany and Nikki Verdecchia), I can’t imagine how you could possibly choose between us, but I am sincerely honored and flattered to be your 2013 Queen of Crabs!  Last but not least, of course, thank you Baltimore for all your characteristically kinky crevices, naked nerdy nooks, sultry slutty slits, your Watery Johns, and Divine dirty delights!
