She came from New Orleans folklore, He in your face attitude and confidence has been a power house on stage. Her raw femme style of dance and high energy tassel twirling strip has been a way to channel anger and creativity on stage. She came to be created from a failed relationship - The feeling you get when you can show that person that did you wrong that you can stand on two feet with out fear and face the emotions in front of you with a successful as i say it (F*@K You) am going to be ok. She passed away from the world in the 1800s thanks to an evil man that needed the soul of a pure woman to evoke his power, but it all went horribly wrong when Voodoo Priestess sold her soul to Marie Laveau the iconic voodoo queen. The trade was revenge and in her anger voodoo priestess gave her self up to the anger and was successful in her revenge. Hence the tittle how do you like me now? The evolution of this character has been backwards- The first costume was very simple in construction but the idea of her was having her reemerge from her grave to fin the man that wronged her years ago to seek her revenge.
