Fantasy and Blurred Lines
Editor’s Note: As Robin Leach winds down his traditional summer vacation under the Tuscan sun in Italy and heads to the East Coast for a brief visit before returning to the rigors of Vegas DeLuxe, many of our Strip personalities have stepped forward in his absence to pen their own words of wisdom. We continue today with the gorgeous topless temptresses of “Fantasy” at Luxor.
In a city of endless entertainment, we feel lucky to be heading into our 14th year in Las Vegas. As an adult revue, we’re no strangers to “spicing things up” as The Strip’s Biggest Tease. The key to success for our show, “Fantasy,” is to keep Sin City on its toes.
So what’s life like for a “Fantasy” showgirl? Here’s a behind-the-scenes look of some of the things we’ve been up to recently:
After the curtain closes, the fabulous life of a showgirl doesn’t slow down. You can find us on the hottest red carpets, including the recent opening of Hakkasan at MGM Grand, soaking in the sun while judging SpyOnVegas’ Hot 100 contest at nearby Wet Republic and shaving heads to benefit St. Baldrick’s Foundation. We also participated in the 10th annual Adam & Eve Charity Love Fling bachelor and bachelorette auction to support New Vista.
A Sad Goodbye, A New Beginning
As some of you might know, our lovely headliner Lorena Peril just left us to take the world by storm as Sandy in a global tour of “Grease.” She will be performing with her husband, Ray Jon Narbaitz, who scored the role of Vince Fontaine.
We are very sad to see Lorena go, as she has become a part of our “Fantasy” family the past few years, but we are so excited that she has this amazing opportunity. Lorena will be traveling the world with the love of her life while doing what she enjoys most: performing.
But as they say, “The show must go on!” Our talented production team is on the hunt for Las Vegas’ next great singer to lead the show this fall.
As showgirls, we have a passion for performing, so much so that the dancing doesn’t stop when there’s not an audience around. To have a little fun after the show, you can often find us dancing in the dressing room. This inspired us to create a tribute to one of our favorite songs, “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell Williams.
Late one night after our show, we changed into our finest “Blurred Lines”- inspired attire and hit the stage to re-create the steamy video. Our resident comedian, the hilarious Sean E. Cooper, transformed into Pharrell, and our amazing stagehand, Jay, aka “Beefy,” was Robin; they were both incredible!
Before the camera started rolling, we gathered key props to set the mood: a toy car, a stop sign, a stationary bike, a guitar, fake money, dice and Lily the Dog. Want to see the music magic we created? Check it out here, and share it with your friends.
After nearly 14 years on The Strip, we don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. In October, we will be launching our 2014 calendar – sure to be our sexiest one yet! We can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for this year’s theme.
In the meantime, come by and see us at the Luxor. Even if you’ve seen the show before, we have a few sexy new dancers, new numbers and plenty of entertainment to go around. Feel free to stick around after the show and meet us in the lobby for pictures; we love meeting new friends. Tickets can be purchased at the Luxor box office, online at Luxor.com and by calling (800) 557-7428 or (702) 262-4400.
