Pink Kitten Dance School’s Halloween Horror Poster

I love Halloween, I’m not sure of the exact pull but I’m drawn to the macarbe and darkly comic side of life which finds a welcome home in Halloween.

I’ve been involved with Pink Kitten for a couple years now and even have my own burlesque alter ego – namely Machete Rose, a necromorphous dancer.  In almost every performance she’s done, her act ends with a death scene.  This means that I’m particularly skilled at stage falls.  I’m convinced this must have a use in ‘everyday life’, i.e fainting at opportune moments (say, in an effort to avoid answering awkward questions) or liven up boring situations (waiting rooms).

Halloween is on the horizon and Pink Kitten are readying the acts for their next student showcase.  Such an awesome event needs an awesome poster – behold, my poster for the Cabaret of Halloween Horrors:

If you’re in the Bristol area, you can buy tickets here:  Pink Kitten Dance School’s Cabaret of Halloween Horrors  

If you’re lucky, you may even get to see me die.  Or perform.  Whichever you fancy.

 

I thought I’d add my sketch as I was developing the character/lighting:
