As evidenced by tattoo culture, comic book fan-art, and the majority of Halloween costumes available for purchase, one thing is certain: People love sexed-up versions of beloved fairytale characters. And Orange County cabaret and burlesque troupe ("caburlesque," maybe?) Vixen knows all about this dirty little fixation—and they embrace it! For this month's Vixen show at Velvet Lounge, the sexy and sassy group presents Fairy Tale Fantasies. Come watch as the precious princesses, sweet fairies and even nasty villains from your favorite childhood stories get onstage to sing, dance and strip. Sure, it's ever-so-slightly twisted, but that's how we like it.
