Lunar-pale skin beneath a jet-black bob, the heart of a flapper and the glittering step of a starlet, Eva Devore will transport you to days gone by. With blushing peach cheeks and a Clara Bow kiss, this old world enchantress stepped out from 1926 onto the stage in 2016. Originally calling the mid north coast home, Eva took off for the city with stars in her eyes, and has now teased audiences all across Australia.
A burlesque instructor at Sky Sirens, theatrical costume maker and all-round creative force, She is proud to celebrate her luscious curves and advocate for body positivity. Eva is available to perform at burlesque and variety showcases, corporate events and private functions
WELL AIN'T SHE A PEACH?
"...she is transcendent, looking as though she has stepped
one delicate foot off the Ziegfeld stage under the luminous arch of a crescent moon..."
- Alyssa Kitt, Miss Burlesque NSW 2019 Review
Eva appears regularly at a variety of venues and productions. Most notably, Eva has appeared as a headline act for Heartstoppers and Glory Box, produced by Sky Sirens, as well as performing regularly as part of the Haus Burlesque show at the Bavarian on York Street, with Pretty Lady Co in its' 2018/2019 season. Eva was a finalist in the prestigious Miss Burlesque NSW competition in 2019, and was nominee for 'Most Classic' in the 2019 Australian burlesque industry awards, the Busties.
Eva is an accomplished seamstress and designer and costume maker who stitches not only her own seams, but creates lavish costumes for some of burlesque's finest. From conceptualising events and coordinating photo shoots, to creating custom costumes and rhinestone pasties, this crafty minx is the key to making your creative dreams a reality. Her costume label Gilded by Eva Devore was founded in 2017 and includes a range of gorgeous crystal pasties, burlesque lingerie and custom work.
As an instructor, Eva strives to empower her students to embrace their bodies and find confidence through performance. Teaching at Sky Sirens since 2017, Eva has had the pleasure of introducing many students to the art of the tease, and delighted in nurturing budding performers. Eva currently teaches weekly classes at Sky Sirens in Surry Hills, and is also available for workshops and private tutelage by request.
"Eva Devore brought literally devilish wicked heat, roaming far off stage to ‘meet’ the audience, leaving scorch and (fake) blood marks... having an absolute ball and a smile"
