Fetish Formal Highlight: Curio Lecter

The Bloody Maven of Burlesque

Meet the Bloody Maven of Burlesque and one of your hosts for the Fetish Formal, Curio Lecter.
Curio is a Primal Alpha identified kinkster, burlesque performer, producer, founding member and Mama Monster of Arthaus Burlesque and will be singing, dancing and facilitating quite the experience for the denizens of the Fetish Formal.

Curio, who has lit up the stage in the Duke City and in Las Vegas, Nevada doesn't just work in the limelight. She has served on the board of NM:TNG (a group for 18-35 year olds who are interested in, curious about or already involved in kink/fetish and/or Leather relationships) and currently works on the production of talent showcases and Leather pageants for the New Mexico Leather League. Additionally, volunteered locally with the now-retired Burlesque Noir and for the Rebelle Alliance. When I asked about her volunteer experience shes said "Probably the most meaningful volunteer experience I have has was at the Burlesque Hall of Fame weekender where I was able to serve as a rehearsal assistant, meeting and assisting the amazing performers and production crew of what is essentially the burlesque Olympics."

When we sat down to talk, I asked her to tell us more about what she's bringing to the Formal. "They don't call me the Bloody Maven of Burlesque for nothing! I am deeply attracted to the power and sensuality of two things: metal and blood. I have always greatly enjoyed play that involved cold sensations, which is what originally drew me to metal. The more I engaged in play using metal objects, the more metal itself became the object of my fetishization: the weight, the smell, the gleam, the color. My most prized toys are metal and even thinking about them in the right context brings me a rush. My love of blood goes back far into my earliest memories, even into past lives. The smell and sight and taste of blood is a high for me.The marriage of these two is how I came to my play with sharps, which I will be demonstrating at the Formal. I am most comfortable with hypodermic needles which I use in both piercing and/or or blood letting. A needle is an instrument that is very precise, with minimal wounding that allows for quick healing, which is why I like to incorporate them into my burlesque. Knives or other blades are better for blood letting and sensations, but scar longer. Fortunately for the curious, I will be bringing some blades along as well. As for my other kinks, I am inexorably attracted to primal violence: hunting, biting, clawing, fighting, and other animalistic behaviors. The baser the better, with consent of course." And don't worry, denizens of the Formal, all play will be limited to the Dungeon of Visual Delights and the stage, come and delight from a voyeuristic perspective.

In addition to her organizational skills behind the scenes and her charisma on stage, Curio is also a tarot reader and is allowing you to book a session at the Fetish Formal. "My connection to my primal self is very strong and so my psychic energy takes that monstrous feeling. My readings tend to be raw and powerful (so I'm told). Readings come to me in bits, and so the process can feel wild as I try to piece words together from the sensations and energies pictured in the cards. With tarot, each card has its own message, but a spread works together to synthesize those messages into a narrative that answers a question or tells a tale...usually whether you like it or not. It is my responsibility I feel, to deliver that message as clearly as possible. And that's what I feel can be expected: a clear message from somewhere or someone that you need to hear." Curio will be available for readings starting when the doors open, and we encourage you to sign up in advance. There will be only one ten card reading available, only two five card readings, and there will be some three card readings available. Curio will be reading from the Tarot Sexualis- the deck created by our featured artist Darla Hallmark.

Curio's next performance will be "something totally different from my exhibitions at the Formal. November 19 at Sidewinders Bar with the SWAG Cabaret's "Americana" show and a little tribute to the devil in the South. Speaking of Sidewinders, my troupe Arthaus Burlesque will debut as the resident Burlesque troupe there in a self-titled tribute to all things weird, dark, and queer. December 3rd is the date for that production."

Fetish Formal: Shop Highlight

The January Shop

At the Weekly Alibi's Inaugural Fetish Formal, not only will you be able to enjoy the sights we've created to incite and delight you while you meander through the fabulous crowd, but we will also have some featured vendors for you to find something special to take home.

The January Shop was opened in 2013 to fill two gaps in the BDSM toy market: vegan toys, and toys that are affordable and well made. The founders are openly poly, pagan, kinky and leather: Robert Jones and Orli January, together with Orli's husband, head the January House Leather Family. The January Shop also employs other members of the kink community, and, unlike some of the very plentiful overseas companies that make BDSM toys, are committed to paying their employees a reasonable wage. That's right—you can bring social conscientiousness to your playroom at no extra charge!

When you walk up to the January Shop's table at the Formal, the first thing to catch your eye will probably be the brightly colored paracord floggers. There's a flogger to create any sensation, from thuddy to stingy, heavy to light. Orli's favorite part of vending at events is helping people find exactly the right sensation for them. Your Passport includes the opportunity to utilize Orli's expertise!

The January Shop also sells hand-dyed and -conditioned bondage rope in cotton, jute and coconut, cut to your specific needs. (We've invited Orli and Robert to demonstrate proper use in our Dungeon of Visual Delights!) In addition to rope, they'll have wearable works such as custom collars, leashes, body harnesses and jewelry. Your Alibi and Cabaret staff will be donning some of their custom jewelry during the Formal. (Look for the scarlet letter "a"s if you need one of us.)

The January Shop retails online and at local events, and wholesales both in the US and internationally. They also take appointments for Albuquerque locals to shop in person!

Some Albuquerque home invaders messed with the wrong woman.
