Fancy started out doing burlesque by participating in an Art Beat burlesque competition in Seattle in 2001. She was a Hawaiian lampshade come to life, and used her (then) Capoeira acro skills to somehow win the thing. From there she was asked to audition, and be in Miss Indigo Blue’s new troupe BurlyQ: A Queer Cabaret, thus began Fancy Chance’s burlesque hobby which soon turned into a career once she moved to London in 2003.
Veronica was first introduce to and very much intrigued by Hair Hanging at the age of 18, when saw the Alejandro Jodorowsky film Santa Sangre. From that point on she collected pictures that she found of Hair Hanging, but never actually thought she would do so herself. In 2007 she was asked to be in an alternative sideshow/circus theatre show called The Fire Tusk Pain Proof Circus, they wanted to know if she’d like to try to train a new skill besides clowning. The rest is history.
Because Fancy Chance makes a better Prince than Prince. That is all. ~ TimeOut London
The Fabulous Russella was running a competition called London’s Next Top Tranny, and needed contestants. He asked Fancy to perform something, and it was the easiest thing in the world to want to live out her life long dream of DRAG PRINCE. Fancy won the competition with the help and ideas of Trixie Malicious who was the muse and backing dancer for this winning act.
Fancy’s performance as Prince include a “naughty” Prince lipsynching, and as a cabaret live singing drag-kind act.
