“And then of course, there is Melody Mangler. Easily distinguishable by the serpent tattoo that wraps around the left side of her midsection and thigh, her boisterous facial expressions, edgy getups, and seductive movements demand attention since she is just having so much fun.

“She may not strike you as a the type to go out in little more than her knickers and bra, but when Voodoo Pixie hits the stage the pint-sized dynamo wears just that. The burlesque stage, that is.

My win was covered by the Vancouver Sun and Calgary Herald:

“Soon to turn 26, Mangler has been making her name on the burlesque scene for the last four years, teaching classes and performing with the Screaming Chickens, a not-for-profit society based in Vancouver that celebrates, advocates and educates about burlesque.”
