Tamara Mascara is Austrias Drag performer number one. She hosts her own partys in her hometown Vienna, works as a djane and pleases her crowd with glamourous shows. Tamaras burlesque performance is influenced by the ballet lessons she took for several years at the famous Vienna state opera ballet. All her costumes are designed and made by herself. She studied fashion and costume design at Viennas fashion institute, did her own fetish corset collection and worked for many clubbings and events as stylist and costume designer. With her style, humour and elegance, she manages to make her audience forget about the fact, that she is actually a man. She opens the door to a world of fantasy and beauty.
