Babes of Burlesque: 13

COCO LECTRIC

This Texas temptress so electrified the crowds at the 2010 New Orleans Burlesque Festival that she earned the Queen of Burlesque crown. She’s based in Austin, where she’s headmistress of the Austin Academy of Burlesque and founder of the Jigglewatts Burlesque troupe. While she’s a Neo-Burlesque performer, she consciously strives to re-create the power and purpose of classic burlesque moves.

She told one interviewer: “I always think back to ‘What is the intent here?’ Classic tease is the intent; ingenuity with your costumes, and your peels, your removals, that is the intent: having that fire, having that tease.”

Here’s her winning 2010 performance that brought her the Queen of Burlesque crown.

And here’s her 2011 farewell performance as the Queen, down in New Orleans.
