Starting life in Las Vegas, it would be hard for Hazel-eyed, Abby Dandy to settle down into the 9-to-5 rituals of a normal, workaday metropolis. She loves the anytime, day or night availability of Sin City and fancies herself a purveyor of some of the town’s hidden gems.
Acting and “putting on a show” always came easy for Abby and she shows us she not only has the chops for the leading role but also the curves. Her adventurous character carries her around the globe and her kind spirit endears her with all who are fortunate enough to get to know her. Check out our latest Babe Of The Month, Abby Dandy, and you’ll see why she’s a babe, not only during her birth month (her birthday is this Saturday – July 25th) but throughout each turn of the calendar!
What do you enjoy most about living in Las Vegas? I love the 24-hour convenience of the city AND the hidden, natural beauty of the landscape.
How did you get into modeling? I grew up in the theatre and eventually transitioned into burlesque. As a way to promote me and express myself, I started modeling. Over time, it grew into a passion that I have fueled over the years. My parents will tell you though, I was NEVER shy. When I was a child, I would put on “The Abby Show” in our backyard. Once, I even fired my dad from the show, haha! Sorry dad, it’s show business!
What’s your favorite classic car? I’m pretty basic with this one. I want Don Draper’s car! A 1965 Coupe DeVille, please.
Who is your favorite classic Hollywood starlet and why? Lauren Bacall. It’s difficult to pick just one favorite starlet, but Ms. Bacall’s sultry demeanor and headstrong personality call to me. Not to mention her famous romance with Mr. Bogart…
What are you most passionate about? Being kind. I truly believe that the most important thing in this world is to be kind.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time? I enjoy video games, playing dungeons and dragons (check me and my buds out on Twitch @arthardstudios), and forgetting to water my houseplants.
Any new hobbies you’ve taken up during quarantine? I practice ballet more regularly now that I actually have time to devote to a practice! That’s nice!
Favorite travel destination? I visited the big island of Hawaii last August and it was a real adventure! I would love to travel to Australia next, or perhaps connect with my familial roots in Ireland.
Favorite road trip destination? Disneyland! I’ll need to have someone else willing to drive through. I have to be ready to tell you fun facts about Disneyland on the trip!
Do you prefer a night out dancing, listening to live music or a fancy dinner out? I actually would prefer a nice seafood dinner (think linguini and clams) and then a lovely intimate evening in a jazz club, listening to someone like Kurt Elling. Actually, yeah. That’s my dream date! I just realized!
What do you miss being able to do the most since quarantine? I miss hugs. Big deep hugs where you smell the sweat and warmth of the person you are hugging and nothing else matters.
What do you enjoy most about burlesque? I enjoy the give and take with the audience. I love the energy of entertaining!
How long have you been a performer? My entire life! I’ve always enjoyed the glow of attention, and I eventually fine-tuned that skill during my stints in community theatre. Eventually, by way of more professional theatre productions, I found my way to burlesque!
What’s your favorite song to dance to? I love dancing with a live jazz or blues band- the electricity of live music is just simply magical. Short of live music, I really enjoy dancing to more stylized music- I love “Never There” by Cake, or “Momma Sed” by Puscifer.
Describe your style? Funny Femme Fatale. Lipschtick, if you will.
