BROOKLYN BOAS

BORN IN BKLYN, MADE IN L.A.

Created by neo-burlesque legend & #DollarStoreShowgirl Nasty Canasta, Brooklyn Boas are a durable, stage-kitten-friendly, 100% vegan alternative to feather boas. After more than a decade of cleaning up shed feathers from traditional boas, Nasty began experimenting with different materials (macramé yarn, Christmas ornaments, paper bags, even Dunkin Donuts cups) before perfecting her tulle boa recipe - & the very first Brooklyn Boa was born. Now handmade to order in her treehouse studio just outside Los Angeles, Nasty’s boas are a favorite with spectacular showponies & drag artists across the US & Canada. Customizable, machine-washable & easily-packable for the superstar-on-the-go, they’re the perfect piece of fabulousness for every wardrobe. Photo: Francine Daveta
