Meet Our HEADLINERS
Foxy Lexxi is an international award-winning performer & producer from Montreal, Canada. She's the first Canadian to be crowned Miss Viva Las Vegas, in 2018. In 2019 she was crowned Miss Starlet Hollywood, Best Burlesque Arizona, & 1st runner up at the New Orleans Teaser festival. She was voted #41 in the 2021 Top 50 most influential burlesque figures by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine. Of a blinding magnetism, Foxy emanates the "je ne sais quoi" of an artist at the highest level of her art.
Co-founder of the Vancouver Burlesque Centre, internationally recognize and award winning performer - Lola has headlined festivals from Finland to Stockholm, Chicago to New Mexico, been voted into the Top 50 Burlesque Industry Figures 2012-2020 and holds the title of 2nd runner up Reigning Queen of Burlesque Miss Exotic World 2013. Lola is best known for her intense slow burn, combining her anachronistic styles of vintage and modern, she is a 1920’s starlet with a kiss of Ramones grit.
Since then she has headlined across Canada, USA, Finland, and New Zealand, performing, teaching, and mentoring as she travels and proudly representing Canadian Burlesque as The Grand Beaver of Canadian Burlesque!
In 1972 this Ontario farm girl wandered into an Oregon stripper bar & the rest is history. From Alaska to New Zealand, Halifax to Micronesia while crisscrossing the US and Canada for 17 years until hanging up her g-string in the small mountain town of Nelson with the comment "Well that was interesting!” But as they say, “no rest for the wicked" - and so by chance, Judith was rediscovered by the BC Burlesque Community, performing her first festival at VIBF 12 years ago.
But as life in the fast lane, everyone has a time to retire and so she did --Hanging up her G-string to pursue a small-town life, love of skiing and sewing.⠀ ⠀ But a chance meeting at The Burlesque Hall of Fame found herself acclaimed a Legend of Burlesque and once again found herself in a myriad of feathers and rhinestones at her very first Burlesque Festival VIBF in 2008 as The Canadian Legend of Burlesque.⠀
