In her third pageant of the summer, Champagne Bubbles appeared at the Ice Palace in Cherry Grove to compete for the title of Miss Fire Island. Strutting her stuff on a floating runway, she showed off a floral Daywear look and a jeweled encrusted Evening Gown look. A favorite with the judges and crowd, a whole new group of fans now looks forward to an appearance by Miss Bubbles.
No stranger to the pageant world, Champagne headed out to Fire Island for the Miss Cherry’s pageant in August. As usual, she was a showstopper. Dressed like an ice cream cone for “Creative Daywear”, Champagne dazzled the audience with homage to a vintage ice cream parlor gal. Her talent was ‘CRAZY’ by Britney Spears (with reveal, of course) earning shouts, cheers and snaps of approval from the crowd and judges alike. Champagne had a well-deserved crowning of ‘Audience Favorite’!
Champagne’s Off-Broadway debut happened at NYC’s New World Stages at the long-running (and much-loved) Sutton Lee Seymour Show. As the guest host to her friend Sutton, she wowed the crowd and turned multiple looks. The crowd’s favorite moment of the night? Adding a little camp to a performance of Ivy Levan’s “Biscuit” by throwing biscuits into the crowd and her, quite impressive, closing “Circle of Life” number with Sutton and their impressive improvisation of humans for props to celebrate Earth Day!
Champagne Bubbles was a top competitor in Miss Hell’s Kitchen on May 9th, 2015 alongside Chelsea Piers, Coco DeBall, Fifi DuBois, Miz Cracker, Monet X Change, Sasha Pierce Davenport, and Yuhua Hamasaki. The competition was a benefit for The Cycle for the Cause, an AIDS / HIV bike ride benefiting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgenders within the community through the center which is based in the West Village of New York. Champagne Bubbles gave a fierce, classic performance of Madonna’s Vogue and took home the ‘Fan Favorite’ award! Read more and see photos here!
When she was asked by Facebook to perform for their holiday party in NYC, Champagne went all out. With the chic Stage 46 as her backdrop and her gal pals Sutton Lee Seymour, Marty Thomas, and Summer Holmes at her side; she brought high-energy choreography, candy canes and cheer to the crowd. She even sang Happy Birthday (Mr. President) to a VP of Facebook dressed as the iconic Marilyn Monroe. By the end of the night, she proved that nothing helps you celebrate the holidays like some Champagne!
