The Fluffgirl Burlesque Society is an organization that specializes in, but is not limited to, the revival of Burlesque. Burlesque was and is an inexpensive form of entertainment, otherwise known as the poor man’s follies. Sprung in the early 1900’s, burlesque was a broad variety show featuring comedians and strip tease dancers. Like vaudeville, it owed much to the circus and circus sideshow acts. Originally the girls wore one piece union suits and then later began to develop more elaborate costumes with the popularity of Broadway review. The costumes became flashier and included increasing amounts of nudity. It was around this time that the actual strip tease was born.
