Tonight’s booking at The House of Blues has been in the works since April!
When we get a Client who represents something so special to us- we will go far above and beyond to make an idea they have in their mind – a reality. We will spend the time to visualize, conceptualize, and draft up ideas until our Clients are satisfied! Hand creating costuming, branding, and carefully selecting the right performers to make sure we are on point for their Event.
Tonight’s Special VIP event for C.H.O.C is not only an important repeat Client of ours, their Event will be raising funds for Children’s Hospital (C.H.O.C) which was the very first of my volunteer locations I performed for as a Madonna lookalike many years ago and I will never forget that experience!
So tonight our Client wanted Mardi Gras theme! so we will be serving it up for her in vivid colors and style with our beautiful SHOWGIRLS, CHAMPAGNE DOLLS, GIANT CHAMPAGNE GLASSES, STROLLING CHAMPAGNE SKIRTS and CIGARETTE GIRLS/ CASINO GIRLS- with all the costumes customized just for our special Client!
We love to be able to customize, brand and create our entertainment to cater each and every Client- as we take that much pride in every job we do!
Here is to tonight! and all the wonderful people who will be there to celebrate with Mrs. Bella’s Dolls to raise funds for such an important cause!!

Loving that Vintage glam Pin-Up Inspired look? check out this wonderful Makeup Tutorials for Retro Looks by the wonderful Azalea Pena
Vintage and retro are back in style (but then again, were they ever not?)! To help you master the glamour and style of the 50’s, we’ve put together this vintage-inspired makeup and hair tutorial! Now every day can be a pinup girl day!
Makeup Tutorial | Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Get this look now!
I’m sure we can all agree that the pinup look is one of the best looks around. It’s feminine, strong, and in today’s day, unique. This look is great for any day and occasion and, if it’s not your usual daily wear, is fun to play around in and dress up with.
Let’s start channeling your inner Bettie Page!
Step 1 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply highlighter for a radiant glow.
Apply highlighter on the apples of your cheeks and under the arch of your eyebrows to create a healthy, natural-looking glow. To highlight the inner corners of your eyes, use a shimmery cream eyeshadow.
Step 2 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Contour your cheeks with a bronzer.
Using a bronzer, contour your cheeks to highlight your cheekbones.
Step 3 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply blush on the apples of your cheeks.
Apply a baby-pink blush on the apples of your cheeks.
Step 4 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply eyeshadows on the eyelids.
Using a neutral palette, pick the eyeshadow color closest to your skin tone and apply it on your eyelids. Next, pick the lightest shade and apply it on the inner corner of your eyes and below your eyebrows’ arch (on top of the highlighter you applied earlier).
Step 5 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Using brown eyeshadow, use your eyeshadow brush and focus at the base of the crease to achieve a gradient look.
Using a medium-to-dark brown eyeshadow, create a deep crease and diffuse it with an eyeshadow brush.
Step 6 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Create a winged eyeliner.
With an eyeliner pencil (we prefer liquid, but use whichever you feel most comfortable with), create your winged eyeliner look. Learn how to do winged eyeliner here.
Step 7 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply wax underneath the eyebrows to create a defined edge
Frame and define your eyebrows using wax and fill them in as necessary.
Step 8 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply flirty faux eyelashes.
To make your eyes really stand out, use false eyelashes. Dont’ be afraid; the pinup girl look is about channeling your feminine energy and going all out!
Step 9 – Vintage-Inspired Makeup
Apply your favorite shade of red lipstick!
To finish your makeup look off, apply bold red lipstick. Tip: applying lip tint before the lipstick will help the color stay vibrant for a longer period of time.
Step 1 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Section hair and divide evenly.
Now it’s time to make some victory rolls! To get started, create a side part and then section your hair from your hairline to your ears (~ 3 inches) on both sides. Pull the rest of your hair back to make sure it doesn’t get mixed in with the part that you’ve sectioned off.
Step 2 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Grabbing small sections, curl your hair in the same direction.
Now it’s time to curl your hair! When curling, be sure to create the curls away from your face and only grab small sections at a time. After you’ve curled your sections, secure the curls with a pin or clip.
Step 3 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Once the hair cools down, remove the pins and apply hairspray to help keep the curls in place.
Once you’ve finished curling your hair, remove the clips/pins to let your hair loose.
Step 4 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Comb the hair and apply hairspray to tame frizz.
Comb your curls to smooth them out and apply hairspray to tidy up any loose ends (or hairs).
Step 5 – Vintage-Inspired Hair
Create victory rolls.
We’re almost there! This is the last step to your pinup girl look. To create victory rolls, roll your hair twice around your fingers to create a donut shape (mmm, donuts). Once your donut is formed, secure it with a pin and move on to your next victory roll.
Ta-da – Vintage Inspired Makeup and Hair
Now you’re ready for the pinup girl calendar!
You’re all set to go!

Do you know what is takes to make your party happen!?
When booking an event or casting for a show, much time and ground work is involved no matter the size of the booking scale.
We know all too well that in one booking there are many facets of the design. When we get the call from our client, we immediately begin the planning stages to bring a vision to life. And within that vision is an entire crew of experts to make that dream a reality.
It begins with our leader Bella who discusses the wants and needs of the client typically over the phone or through many e-mail conversations. Bella makes sure she is crystal clear on how and what the client is hoping to create for their event or film project. After numerous communications between client and Bella, the creative process begins.
Bella maps out details in precise formation with swatches of fabrics, hand written drawings that map out each idea, costume, look, color scheme, and style of entertainment requested.
What is needed for each request? Bella gets many calls from casting directors or for film or tv project where big named casting companies rely on Bella’s savvy casting abilities to find that “impossible to find” actor or model.
Perhaps someone is planning a Great Gatsby Party or another themed entertainment where there are a lot of pieces to the puzzle- and need someone with years of experience and a strong talent pool to put together the night.
Many times events need personal, professional writers to map out the script and dialogue.
Bella then begins to make the calls to her well thought out team of experts whom will begin the creating process right with her. Dance captain and choreographer Tonya Vivian will begin the visuals of what she will start to choreograph while musical director Irby Gascon starts mapping out the sound, sound track and all of the PA and musical aspects of the event. With the choreographer and music director in place, the creative part of the process is ready.
Tonya will carefully hand select the dancers and begin mapping out the choreography. The dancers are picked by their technique of dance, and stage presence and ability to bring the client’s vision to life. The dancers are cast by Bella on their ability, look and most importantly their integrity to work as a team and represent Tribute Productions in the most professional way. The dance team is a group of working professional dancers who all come together to make the performance a success.
Many times other professional experts are brought in to help with any props, red carpets, lighting or atmosphere entertainment that Tribute is so well known for. For every event, Bella will custom costume all of the performers. She will work with her client and even create custom product branding on all of her custom costumes.
There is an in-house seamstress to help with custom costuming in which Bella works directly one on one with to map out costuming and to make sure each stitch is exactly as needed.
Musicians, actors, and specialty talents may be called to fill in all the missing pieces of the event theme.
Many times a specific casting call may need to happen to cast a model, or Hollywood double to fit the role of the booking.
Then there is a crew that will help load everything into the event and help pack it all up.
All in one night work!
They say “it takes a village” and in the case of booking a live event, casting for a TV show, putting together a party or even just a very small personal appearance- the team of experts it takes to make an event “the most memorable” really does rely on our team of the best.
We are proud to say how good we feel knowing we put our clients in the best hands possible to not only bring their vision to life, but to make and create that life into their vision!
