Thailand Ladyboy Superstars

Thailand Ladyboy Superstars

If you’ve been to Thailand, then no doubt you encountered the country’s obsession with cabaret performers known as ladyboys: Thai beauty queens, singers and dancers dressed head to toe in intricate costumes dripping in diamantes, feathers and sequins. This September, more than 20 of Thailand’s most highly regarded performers from some of the country’s most prestigious cabaret shows will make their way to St Kilda for a show that is hilarious and filled with talent. While the show isn’t vulgar and there is no nudity, this one’s adults-only for its cheeky, sexy performances and jokes.   They’ll be performing under the Big Top in St Kilda on the St Kilda Triangle in the Lower Esplanade. Tickets are now on sale and start from $49 – get on it now!

Try out your karaoke skills at the Starlight stage competition, or battle your friends to a trading card game at the Animaga Card Game Area. Hungry? Stop by the Animaga Maid and Butler Café. Taking a leaf out of the original maid cafés in Akihabara, Tokyo, you'll be treated to a relaxing cup of tea or a set meal by the kawaii maid staff.  Don't miss the chance to meet your anime, manga, and gaming idols, this year's Animaga guests include Japanese voice actors Toru Furuya (Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon) and Ryoko Shiraishi (Triage X, Gundam). Star cosplayers Yui and Kaname will also make an appearance, as will CEO of Toko Otaku Mode Tomo Kamei, and one of Tokyo's best-known maids, Hitomi from @home Café.
