Ghoulish Girls! Zombie Burlesque (NSFW)

The French may not know much about trick or treating (kids came into the brasserie looking for candy while we ate dinner last night...??) but they practically invented dressing up and looking sexy! Think Marie Antoinette and Moulin Rouge.

For the holiday, the very hip Bar Manufacture (42, rue de Rochechouart, 9ème) turned its weekly Pretty Propaganda burlesque show into an eerie event complete with Voodoo zombies, unbound mummies, and dolls come back from the dead.



Upstairs the costumes stayed on while limbs fell off. The unpretentious, international (but not touristy!) crowd really got into the theme, led by the bar staff who cheerfully commanded a packed house with the intimidation of a dominatrix and the efficiency of an axe-murdered short-order waitress. Between the cocktails and the tail, the Irishman and I staggered out of there like a pair of zombies after "Booooooooooobs!".
