Burlesque Dancer & Pin-Up Model Kiki Kisses


Burlesque Dancer & Pin-Up Model Kiki Kisses

It is a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy Kiki.  Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?

Kia Ora! I’m Kiki Kisses from the corner of the world that is New Zealand! By day I am a graphic designer and digital marketer and by night I shimmy around the stage as a burlesque dancer. My friends describe me as a fizzy unicorn! I’m the reigning Miss Burlesque Beauty and Miss Frankton Thunder, which has helped immensely with my pin-up modelling! You could say I have my fingers in a lot of pies

How did you interest in burlesque start?

I spent my childhood making googly eyes at classics like Grease, Dirty Dancing & Fred Astaire movies which started with vintage fashion and naturally progressed into the glitz and glam that is burlesque. I’m a magpie at the best of times!

Is there a story behind one of your tattoos?

There is a story behind every single one! The one I would have to say means the most is my wrists. In Scottish Gaelic they say “shall be Merry” “shall be Frank” but it’s a bit of a play on words. The obvious – ‘Be Happy – Be Honest’ but also, my grandparents names were Mary and Frank.

Do you have a memorable photoshoot experience to share?

The most memorable to date would be when (Richard) and I went on a full day shoot in Northern NZ!

From 5am to 6.30pm, we shot in beaches, forests, rivers, waterfalls and even glow worm caves! It was a fun, but very tiring day!

What is a typical day like for yourself?

Typical day consists of me getting up – usually lying in for 20min and the other 20min frantically trying to get out the door. Heading to work during the day – designing, filming or on the computer. Head to the dance studio for a couple of hours and then home to diamante or something else creative.

Do you have any other hobbies?

I make acrylic earrings at the moment. I work for an art supply company – so I’m always finding an excuse to buy some new products and be creative!

How long do you think you’ll survive a zombie apocalypse?

HA!!! Not long at all – I’m one of the clumsiest people you’ll ever meet – especially when I’ve had a glass or 6 of bubbles! Haha

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Kiki. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

One thing I find super sexy is when someone is being them genuine selves. I admire people that can just let their freak flag fly without caring what others think. You do you! And I can define sexiness in the same realm – having confidence in yourself – first and foremost – that’s what true sexiness is.
