emergency escape

Love this.

Dita Von Teese’s emergency scissors. The engraving reads:

“Property of Dita Von Teese / In case of striptease emergency cut corset laces!” And yes, those are glittery handles.

I guess these things are all about appearances – if you’re putting on a beautiful, extravagant burlesque show and writhing around in a giant martini glass you need something a little special for your “in case of emergency” stash.

However, if you’re rigging a rope chest-harness and rocking a rough-house, steampunk kind of style you can probably make do with a pair of second hand EMT shears. If there’s a few rusty red smudges on the blades, it’ll only add to the atmosphere.
