Veronica Varlow is a burlesque dancer, pin-up model, actress, producer and performance artist based in Brooklyn, New York. She is the owner of the internet boutique Danger Dame, which specialises in clothing inspired by burlesque, cabaret, the 1940s and 1950s. She started to follow her dreams after being attacked in the face by a rottweiler in December 2003. While in 8 hours of surgery, she sadly realized that the only reason she wasn’t following her true dreams was because she was afraid of what other people would think. Determined to live her dreams no matter what, she left her cubicle life behind and started performing world wide.Varlow has performed internationally as one of Emilie Autumn‘s “The Bloody Crumpets” since 2007. Varlow has performed for events held by designer Marc Jacobs, supermodel Heidi Klum, The Whitney Museum and for NYT Best-Selling Vampire Novelist, Melissa de la Cruz. The Gothamist said of her, “Veronica Varlow courts danger, or, at the very least, projects an image of a siren so alluring you simply can’t resist her, even when you know you’re headed straight for hell (or jail). She was also called “A modern day Marlene Dietrich” by the London Times. She was recently named one of the 12 “Hottest Ladies of Burlesque” alongside such icons as Bettie Page, Lili St. Cyr, and Sherry Britton.Varlow’s most prominent work, according to herself “the very reason [she’s] alive” is the still unrealised film Revolver, whose trailer won a Golden Trailer Award in 2005. In addition, she has also participated in the film Exposed and is scheduled to appear in the documentary Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School by Peter Bolte in the course of 2010.In the fall of 2008, Varlow participated as a coach for Andrea Martin in MTV’s Emmy-winning show, MADE.
