Victoria Pneumatica is a historical costumer, burlesque performer, and pinup model with a retro aesthetic and a flair for the luxurious and otherworldly. Her love of burlesque is equal only – and owing in no small part to – her love of historical costuming and all things Victorian. Possessed of a statuesque and stunning beauty, her mind in none-the-less filled with visions of a world of corsets, petty coats, difference engines, luxurious dresses, Nikola Tesla, supernatural monsters, rhinestones, and lot and lots of steam.
Based in Chicago, but originally from Denver, Ms. Pneumatica made her foray into the exciting world of burlesque by taking classes from and performing alongside mentor and dear friend, Michelle Baldwin (AKA Vivienne VaVoom). She has also performed regularly with Cora Vette, and was a regular fixture at Lannie’s Clocktower up until her big move to the Windy City in 2015.
In 2014, she made her festival debut, performing at the Texas Burlesque Festival, the Hawaii Burlesque Festival and Revue, and the Colorado Burlesque Festival. In 2015, she performed at the Southern Fried Burlesque Festival in Atlanta, where she was awarded the title of Most Classic.
Victoria Pneumatica will leave you longing with nostalgia for bygone eras.
