Elysium Cabaret’s Show of February 15th 2019

If it’s Friday, it’s Elysium Cabaret, and hey it was Friday! Welcome to the weekend! Friends and family gathered under a canopy of imagination at The Empire Room on the Copperhead Road sim. Paul and Jilley welcomed arriving guests who were immediately enveloped in DJ Corri’s intoxicating tunes. Wiz was indisposed, we will say he was working in RL but I heard he was really in jail for trying to feather dust a meter maid who was attempting to give him a parking fine. Okay I’m lying, Wiz was not in jail! Does anybody know where he has been? He has gone missing! We need to put an APB out on him. FIND OUR WIZ!

*climbs to the top of the nearest mountain and yells out, “WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!”

Well. The show must go on, and on it did go. Let’s take a look at the fine performances presented! All made with love of music and movement, a celebration of creativity and human imagination. Let us share with one another.

==========================================
Jo
With Seb, Diamonte, Queenie, Nara and Jilley
Jo created something unique and very special, striking and artsy that is a must-see in SL dance.
Black or white – Glee Cast

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
It’s actually a convoluted tale. I went to an art installation by Meilo Minotaur recently and she generously made the avatars she used available for anyone to take. Some were perfect for a dance and I had the set in my mind right away: very simplistic, stark and childlike, as they are, plus mostly white and black to show them off. The set idea is based on a Cica Ghost exhibit I saw years ago and the trees and cats are actually from her store. But I needed a song. I googled black and white plus songs and this Michael Jackson one popped up and finally all the elements were in place to create the dance.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Actually this was the fastest I have ever put together a dance. Three days after I found the avatars this dance was boxed in its rezzer and complete. That’s very unusual, extremely fast for me. A chunk of time was spent negotiating with Cica to sell me modifiable trees and cats to add the rezzer script as her work is rarely mod. It just all seemed to come together neatly.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
I know the whole thing makes no sense at all. To me it is just a very visual experience, about the achromatic colours, black and white, inspired by the avatars who were just longing to dance. But it was great fun to do.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Don’t look for any subtleties. Laughs. But I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed turning these avatars into dancers!

==========================================
Adam
With Bella, Dear, Si, Zena, Beebs
Adam took us back in time to bounce us in our seats with this upbeat high-energy tune.
Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop the Feeling


==========================================
Paul
DNA-Kindrick Lamar
Paul unleashed the shadows with this bold song, performed on a beautifully lit set, rich with mystery and intrigue.


==========================================
Corri
With Cael, and Zach
Corri got in touch with her inner Mistress, and I heard Miss Ame coached her on showing her teeth to this sexy guys!
Lady Gaga – Teeth


==========================================
Denyaii
With Soco, Sammy, Melvis, Seb, Diamonte
The guys and the gals all teased each other, then the guys took the gals back to their cars to take them for a ride. Looked like fun!
Prince & The New Power Generation – Sexy M. F.


==========================================
Elayn
With DarkRaven Ninetails, Paul Woodrunner, Cannon
Whiskey – Marion Hill
Dark, mysterious and sexy, Elayn dropped a few jaws with this smoaking act, plus the lighting on the set was warm and enticing.

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
Had this song in my list for a while. Just love the beat and the dark steamy theme.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Getting off my butt and getting it done. 🙂

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Just sexy fun really. Whiskey just always has that ‘dangerous’ sort of feel to it. What’s not to love?

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Don’t drink.. alone. 😉

==========================================
Jilley
With Jo and Gracie
The three lovely princesses, though one of them was (and is) a bit of an evil Princess! Guess which one… if you guess right, you win a prize!
Call Me a Princess

Let’s Look at the Elysium Show of February 8th 2019!

It was Friday night, and that meant, it was Elysium Cabaret. Excitement was in the air as guests came from near and far, dressed in their finery, gathering in friendship in the glamorous Empire Room at Copperhead Road. Paul and Jilley welcomed friends and family as DJ Corri sizzled the airwaves with her tunes, getting people bouncing in their seats. Wiz was backstage, assuring dancers were prepared, stretching out and applying makeup, spraying hair and zipping up costumes… Babypea was chained up in the dressing room trying to regain consciousness. It was almost showtime! What came next? Let’s look at the pictures and see!

WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND!!

Dear
iRobot – Jon Bellion


==========================================
Ariel

Chattanooga Choo Choo- Tuxedo Junction


==========================================
Ally
“Chandelier” by Sia (Piano version)


==========================================
Antonio
With Hailie
Motion Picture (Blake Mcgrath)

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I had another song an set in mind, but then Blake dropped this an I heard this song and couldn’t stop listening to it, it felt right.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Well the timing to be honest, I know there are some rough spots in it, this was my first time putting a chair dance in, and my timing was harsh with my animations but over time I”ll probably redo it I have a few other things I’d like to do with this.

3. What does this dance mean to you?
Just took a little leap and reviled more than Hailie or I normally do on stage, and yes I was in control of her clothes (as always) and it was a little gift for her, was a year ago on valentines day of all days that our avs meet av to av and started talking.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Not really, you will see it again with a few changes, maybe a little steamier. However don’t be looking for the movie to be released publicly anytime soon.

==========================================
Eva
With Nara, COWGRL, Zena, and Jo
Meat Loaf Bat out of Hell


==========================================
Hailie
Queen – Loren Gray

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I found this song as I was searching Youtube and loved it from the moment I heard it. Instantly a set sprung to mind and it is something a little different to what I usually do.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Nothing very challenging with this one, just attempting to take note to the finer details to make transitions looks smoother. Although with lag, you never know what is going to happen, will I be naked again? who knows, I hope not lol Maybe I should put two pairs of panties on just to be safe! lol

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
No deeper meaning to this for me personally, just love the song and my set reflects how it inspired my imagination. However, I do feel the song reflects the strength of a woman.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Nothing else to know about this, just watch out for the flames, as the dragons may escape, they are pretty friendly really when they are not hungry. I will be sure to feed them before the show…….but I have been very forgetful lately *giggles* oh well….hope you enjoy the show 🙂

==========================================
Queenie
With Lina, Jo, Gracie, and Jilley
Pink Floyd – Time


==========================================
Babypea
With Ame, Zach, Diamonte, Stoke, Sebastain, Gunner, Jordan, Web, and Wiz.
Low feat. RuPaul by Todrick Hall

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I was searching YouTube for a particular genre of songs for a themed show, and came across this song. I fell head over heels in love with it, to the point of obsessively listening to it over and over and over for several hours. The video is BRILLIANT and lead me to my latest crush, Chester Lockhart. He is BEAUTIFUL and played the scarecrow in the video. This song pumps energy, the words to it are brilliant innuendo, and I love how they have modernised The Wizard of Oz.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
A lot of characters I needed to fit into the dance, bringing them in at different times to compliment the song. Plus three sets. But the costumes were the most difficult. I wanted Wizard of Oz but wanted it sexy and modern, not the traditional for the costumes. Was all put impossible to find exactly what I wanted. The scarecrow was really difficult. Try finding a sexy well-made mesh scarecrow costume. But I am really satisfied with what we did.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Total fun and super badassery! LOVE the rhythymn!

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Check out my new obsession, and get obsessed with this amazing uber sexy dude, he is mesmerising and the epitome of SWOONABLE DELISH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FBS6bwnlKY

Remember the February 1st 2019 Show?

I sure don’t. I wasn’t at this show. Where was I? Well, to be completely honest, some bitch who wanted to steal my magic bag gave me a poison cheese ball. I took a bite and fell into a deep, deep sleep. I slept through everything for like two weeks straight! I only woke up after my cat started licking my face but she was just after the cheese ball. I was most likely snoring with my mouth open. Judging by the raw patches on my tongue, I’d say she licked the cheese ball out of my mouth, so now I have cat germs. I have no idea what I missed during my slumber. Let’s find out!

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I love Ariana Grande, so when I heard this, I had to do it!

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Nothing in particular this time, just moving parts and no scene change but lots of pink, bling, money and sexy ladies!

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Nothing meaningful in this set, just a lot of fun.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?

Getting my movers in a half circle right so i wasn’t bumping into the wall…lol

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
This act was lots of fun to create. Like I said…the message it sends. No one should be made to feel bad for who they are. Be good to one another.

I LOVE THE LORAX!!!!

Honky Tonk Badonkadonk
1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
It started with wanting a prop people could wear and change. Well, shoes wouldn’t work so well, outfits either, and then it hit me – everyone can wear a hat right? Once that started the ball rolling it was so much fun finding favorite songs that tied back to hats.

Carmen Miranda – The Lady in the Tutti Frutti Hat
2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Making the hats took longer than I thought – I had piles of hats everywhere making sure they worked and getting them into place. Piles and piles. Mountains of hats – everywhere. It was weeks before I wanted to even look at a hat again.
