So you wanna be a Dr. Sketchy's model?

Got a trick or talent you just have to share?

Enjoy parading round in your underwear?

Do you have an insane costume that needs airing?

Burlesque artist, fetish model, little person, strong man or woman, contortionist, drag queen or any other fabulous deviation from the norm - we want to hear from you.

At Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School, we are fortunate enough that we have many beautiful people clamouring to model for us. And indeed, why shouldn't they? Modelling and performing for Dr Sketchy's is a lot of fun, offers a fantastic platform for raising your profile and is very different from most modelling gigs about the town. It's also paid. We adore our models and enjoy promoting them in further work, in Christchurch and further afield.

However, we do require dedication, passion and skill from our models. As this is a life drawing AND burlesque event, our models usually double as performers. They choreograph two performances, supply their own music as well as outlandish and stunning costumes and makeup. They meet with the Sketchy girls on several occasions before the event to plot, plan and bond (usually over some form of tipple). Life modelling and/or performance experience is preferred.

If you are interested in modelling for Dr Sketchy's, please email us with:

  • your name (and stage name)
  • contact details
  • any modelling/performing experience you have
  • details of your talents and what you can do
  • what you can offer props/costumes/equipment
  • some photos or video of past performances/modelling
  • and, of course, a little about yourself and your interests.
