Miss Vamp Hawaii is one of the most unique beauty pageants to ever grace the Hawaii Theatre stage and is held every year around the month of October to honor the beautiful, creative and unique women living in Hawaii. Similar to other Pageants, it features the traditional Q&A, a gown/costume competition, crowning the winners with sashes, trophies and prizes. It also features the “Moonlight Bathing Lingerie Competition,” the highlight of the evening, similar to the traditional beauty pageants’ bathing suit competitions.

“Vamp” is short for “Vampires” a symbol of timelessness as vampires are ageless and timeless and so are all women who are always beautiful no matter what age they are.  Miss Vamp Hawaii is open to all women starting from 18 years of age. It’s for all women, regardless of body type, weight, height and age. It celebrates women from all walks of life, cultures, various backgrounds, nationalities and interest. Miss Vamp Hawaii embraces love and beauty as “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and all women are beautiful and inner beauty accentuates outer beauty.

We look forward to seeing you at this ALL AGES event as we find out which contestant will be crowned Miss Vamp Hawaii 2016 ?  Please join Vampire Club in Paradise on Facebook:

Aurelio Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, creator of comic books, animation and toys.

An internationally touring musician, he is at the forefront of the Gothic, Steampunk and Dark Cabaret genres headlining some of the biggest horror, sci-fi and comic book conventions as well as Gothic and Steampunk festivals for nearly two decades. His music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a convention audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his songs “Brains!” and “Land of the Dead” from the Cartoon Network show “The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy”.Voltaire’s live shows, whether solo or with his skeletal orchestra, are full of stories and games. Many describe his shows as sitting around a fire while an old friend regales you with tales, presuming that old friend drinks a liter of rum a night, dates zombie prostitutes and wrestles Krakens.

Voltaire has been recording and touring for over 15 years. He’s released 11 full length CDs.

ABOUT THE BOUGIES –
The Bougies are an indie garage pop band originally from Honolulu. Established in 2011, they started off as a brother-sister duo with Jordan Bongolan as vocalist and guitarist and Kelly Bongolan on the drums. Wanting a fuller sound, they blossomed into a 4 piece band with the addition of Joy Furushima (bass) and Josh Gonzales (lead guitarist) and have refined their sound into what has been described as, “Pop Rocks; sweet with a bite!” They’ve been compared to bands such as The Strokes and Best Coast, with Jordan’s vocals being likened to Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins.They have also performed and opened up for 80s icon Adam Ant in 2013 when he performed at the Republik and they will be opening up for the indie pop band, Echosmith, performing live at the Republik on August 5, 2015. We hope you can join us on Saturday August 29 at BAR 35 for this special new set list ! Thank you for your continued support !
