Hello and welcome to my new blog!
My name is Odelia Opium and I am a burlesque artiste.
Only four weeks ago it’s been the third anniversary of my first ever public performance and what a crazy ride it has been since then!
Being able to perform burlesque gives me such an amazing creative outlet and allows me to express myself in a way that I had never known before!
So there I was three years ago on graduation show night, feeling physically sick with nerves, close to storming off because in my head I kept thinking “This is not for me” and “I am too old/fat/unattractive to do this.” But you know what – I did it! And I felt epic afterwards!
For all these experiences and the wonderful and inspiring people I met on the way I am eternally grateful.
In my blog I am going to write about my little adventures in the world of cabaret – come along if you like!
