I touched this type of very traditional showgirl costume in a vintage store in Las Vegas. I felt like I wanted to travel back in time to see what that costume has seen! :D

Actress Marian Martin in a Satan-themed burlesque cape. Martin actually played a dancer named ‘Pinky Lee’ in the 1943 film, ‘Lady of Burlesque’ which was based on the novel ‘The G-String Murders’ written by strip tease queen Gypsy Rose Lee. Martin was not a burlesque performer, but her costume is in the satanic burlesque spirit of this post.  Actress Marian Martin and a burlesque cape featuring our pal, Satan, 1930s
