Finding the right name to use for pinup/burlesque/cosplay/performing can be really difficult. I know people with amazing stage names that sound like real names (some of whom I don’t even know their real names). I’ve recently changed my stage name to Mickey Starling, which is more in line with the theme and style of my new performance character, but up until the start of 2017, you may have known me by my pinup name, Miss Mickey.
Welcome to my new blog! For the better part of 2016, my friend Kate and I worked on a plan, designed, built, and uploaded (okay, so Kate did 99.99% of the work outside planning) to get the new Little Red off the ground.
I’m not sure if it’s because it’s falling on a Saturday this year, or if my dreams have finally come true, but Halloween feels like a bigger deal than it has in years. It was never really a thing here in Australia, but it’s been getting bigger and bigger. I’ve been out and about today and there are so many people dressed in costumes and makeup talking about trick or treating and parties, and I love it.
