In our ongoing Q&A series --"The Candy Gram"-- we ask the same quirky questions of burlesque's various performers. For the next two weeks, until the 2008 Miss Exotic World pageant, we'll be featuring special editions of The Candy Gram with the burly queens competing in the festivities. If you want to be added to the mix, drop us a line at kellydinardo AT gmail DOT com. Today, say hello to Bunny Love.
What is your hometown?
How long have you been interested in burlesque/performing?
I've been interested in performance that leads to taking my clothes off since I was a kid. I've been performing "real" burlesque for about 12 years.
How many pairs of pasties do you own?
I probably have 15 pairs of pasties, but I don't always wear them, I'm a big fan of glittered nipples.
What are your three favorite songs to perform to?
Harlem Nocturne, Young Americans and Night Train.
What three items could you not live without as a performer?
Glitter, hairpieces and false eyelashes.
Who had the biggest influence on your career?
Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball.

Julie Altas Muz

My new ostrich feather pink stole, custom made for me by Miss Tickle.

Some Like It Hot on the big screen at Film Forum.

If you could go anywhere for vacation, where would you go?
Thailand. I've never been there and I've always wanted to go.
