Charming Backstage Photos of Modern Vienna Burlesque

Alright, we fess up. We have a curiosity for burlesque, from its deep past to today’s enduring traditions. Pile on the lashes, rev up those tassels, and get glittered up to shimmy, ladies! Here’s a recent good-looking set from photographer George Papadopoulos on Behance, shot in Vienna, backstage, just before a burlesque show. It’s glossy, vibrant, very casual, and a little coy. There’s something about the meticulous costuming that gives the most random of changing rooms a certain opulent flair, isn’t there? Sneak backstage with the gallery below.
