The Art of the Showgirl

Athena, aka Gazella, spent five years as a Las Vegas Showgirl in the world-famous Showgirl production, Jubilee! at Bally’s Las Vegas. After hanging up her dancing shoes and taking several turns on her path, she has made her way back to a life of feathers and sparkles—through costuming. She now owns an obscene amount of costumes and hats, (for the average person...) and is excited to share her creations and the meticulous process of constructing with the world.


Glamorous adult play time for the little girl in all of us.


Athena loves storytelling. In costume or not, she is available to share her inspirational story of how she transformed from ballerina to Las Vegas Showgirl.
