“In the world of burlesque, where your act is dependent on your costume and props fitting and working properly, Murphy’s Law holds that the most important piece of your costume will fail three minutes before you go onstage. Taffeta is the one you want at your side when that happens. Her breathtaking knowledge of costuming, her encyclopedic problem-solving acumen, coupled with her genuine care and concern for your being, turns potential disasters to relief and triumph.
Taffeta also possesses that uncanny ability to forsee a problem that might occur, and fixing it before it has a chance to rear its head. And because she has an artist soul, she will never let you go onstage unless you look and feel the best you can be. (I have also stalked her online to follow her beading and embellishment projects for the top performers in the business, and I am in awe of the superhuman talent for breathing beauty in life in her work.)
She also somehow creates a zone of calm, mindfulness, and good humor in the chaotic miasma that is backstage. All while looking stinking cute! If anything can fluster her, I don’t think it’s been invented yet. I wish Taffeta could be at every show, at every Festival.”
