krewedelusion Crowns Trixie Minx in 2015


Burlesque pioneer Trixie Minx will take her tease to the entire city on January 31. Carnival upstarts krewedelusion announced today that Minx has been crowned as “Empress of the Insane & Captain of New Orleans.”

 

“It is my ruling that each member of our beautiful & broken city pursues a revolution of self which in turn will create a revolution & evolution of New Orleans as a whole,” said  Ms. Minx in a release. “Be the positive change you want in your community & inspire those around you. Or simply, don’t be a dick.” 

 

The Krewe will roll through the French Quarter and Marigny, beginning at Mardi Gras Zone’s Warehouse around 7:15 p.m. The annual theme is a closely guarded secret and will not be revealed until roll-time.

 

Captain Oscar Diggs points out the group’s commitment to the environment. “As part of their mission to save the Universe, krewedelusion puts the ‘green’ in purple, green & gold by using ‘mule-free, fuel?free’ hand?operated floats and by encouraging its members to give only throws made of naturally abundant or recycled materials.”

 

Minx will take the scepter from Melissa “DJ Soul Sister” Weber who in turn inherited the throne from Cheeky Black.

 

“Trixie Minx,” Captain Diggs continued, “leads the revival of the art of tease. She produces and performs in dozens of shows throughout the Burlesque scene and is best known for creating Fleur de Tease, Burlesque Ballroom, Creole Sweet Tease, and dancing with the New Orleans BINGO! Show. She is indicative of the heart & soul of our unique culture that is krewedelusion!”
