Q: Ever wondered where strippers get their costumes?
A: Quite a lot of the time, from each other. Any dancer will tell you, every changing room is a veritable trading ground of pre-loved/unworn/unwanted garments, on sale at a snip of the original price.
You are invited to browse among tables of pre-loved stilettos, sparkly gowns, costume jewellery, suspenders, garters, nipple-tassels and bras, bikinis, feather boas, and anything else you can think of to accessorise an exotic dancer.
Q: What’s the difference between the stuff strippers wear, and the stuff I can buy from any lingerie company?
A: Durability. Another thing any dancer will tell you is that you can spend hundreds of pounds on incredible lingerie only for it to fall apart because it wasn’t designed to be used much. Strippers’ costumes are made to last, and stand up to the demands of the job. Fastenings are designed to be easily undone, seams are reinforced, and good old lycra never lets us down.
Stripper outfits are more than just thongs and high heels! We customize clothing, seek niche designers, swap costumes backstage, or buy from specialist labels.There are even sellers that go around strip clubs with their own ranges, designed especially for dancing. The stripping life is a unique world of fashion that you can't find in the normal high street!
Come along to the Red Gallery this Valentine's and buy some pre-loved, hand-made and customized outfits. You can even wear your finds at the ELSC Bowie themed Valentine’s party later that evening. Come and see for yourselves, and pick up a bargain!
P.S. We will provide a changing room - plus a couple of mirrors... we promise!
