Babes of Burlesque: 56

SHANGHAI PEARL

We’re nearing the home stretch in our countdown of the most talented and luscious babes of burlesque. Only four more dancers remain before we’ll be moving on and introducing a new series.

Today’s babe, Shanghai Pearl, bills herself as “The Tantalizing Temptress from Taipei” and also as “The Princess of Pulchritude.” Now a performer and instructor based out of Seattle, Shanghai Pearl is celebrated for her wild costumes and bawdy humor, as well as her sultry strip-teases. In a display of versatility, she designs all of her own costumes. Check out the mermaid suit in this compilation, although there’s nothing fishy about the rest of her opulent gear.

We looked, but couldn’t find her full mermaid act online. But the performance she gave at the 2010 New Orleans Burlesque Festival is killer. She always seems to be enjoying herself enormously on stage.
