We thought you might like to know more about our island beauty, Layla La’Moon. So we jumped on a plane to the South Pacific and Layla greeted us with a smile and a … lei. We then asked her a few questions for you!
Q: How did you start doing burlesque and become a performer?
L: I attended monthly burlesque shows almost all of 2012 and on dare, was challenged to do Burlesque. Fanny announced she was opening up the Fox Den and I showed up at the open house. That was about 2 years ago.
Q: What is your favorite act to perform and why?
L: I love my Kiss act. It’s my 1st act to perform and I’m dancing to Prince. Who wouldn’t feel sexy dancing to anything Prince?
Q: How do you pick your music? How many songs are currently on your “To Do” list?
L: Finding a song can be difficult for me. I love Prince and could create an act for any song of his but to keep things fresh. . .I try to find songs that make me feel good. It’s all about that song that makes me feel sexy. I’ve got about 4 songs that are percolating. . . Stay tuned!
Q: Who is your burlesque idol and why?
L: I don’t have a single burlesque idol so to say. I am inspired by all my peers. The members of Don’t Blink Burlesque are my immediate go to “idols” for all the hard work I know they put in to their craft. But everyone in the scene is idol worthy my eyes.
Q:What is your favorite drink?
L: My favorite drink is a good apple cider with a shot of fireball.
Q: What is your concept for an AMAZING act that you just haven’t gotten around to yet?
L: Gosh, all my acts I currently perform and the ones my head are amazing! Lol. I’ve got one in mind that has been evolving every time I play with it. The Character hasn’t shown himself me fully yet but this one I’ll be super proud of if I pull it off.
Q: Honestly, how long does it take you to get ready for a show
L: I give myself hour get ready. Really.
