All aboard for our Naughty Nautical Burlesque Cruise happening THIS Saturday January 6th!


You've got your tickets, now what to wear?! We've compiled a list of ideas and inspiration that will definitely float your boat! 


Well Hello Sailor!


Be a vintage navy sailor or sailorette! Or perhaps you're captain of the fleet? You're only in port for one night, so get ready to make the most of it!

Key themes: White & navy with touches of red & gold! Navy hat, neck scarf, nautical stripes.


View examples of sailor costumes here!



Channel your inner Gene Kelly & Fred Astaire in the classic film "On The Town"

 Always wanted to be a Gil Elvgren pinup? Do it sailorette style!



Yo Ho Ho & A Bottle Of Rum!


You can't sail the high seas without running into a pirate every now and then... Whether your a sea buckaneer or a busty tavern wench, practice yar best pirate voice and get ready to find that buried treasure!

Key themes: Eye patch, skull & crossbones, pirate hat, play/toy swords, muscats & hooks, ruffled white shirt.

You can't go past ol' Captain Jack as inspiration!

 Or perhaps you're a captain with a debonair flair like Captain Hook




Beaches Ain't Ready


Grab those red swimmers & practice your slo-mo beach runs. Get naught nautical BAYWATCH style! If you're lucky enough someone might need resuscitating... 

Key ideas: Red & yellow, sunglasses, whistle, paddle board

Under The Sea


Who says the folks on the boat have all the fun? Grab your tail and a clam-shell bra and try your hand at being a Mermaid or Mer-man at the Naughty Nautical Burlesque Cruise! Or perhaps you'd like to be a divine tropical fish or creature from the black lagoon?

Key Idea: Clam-shell or star-fish bra, shells, fish tails, glitter, long wigs, toy tridents

Be King Triton for the evening!
