Killsey Van HellSin is not made of sugar and spice like other little
girls, but of steel, sass, edges, and glass. A sideshow and burlesque
performer, she embraces fierce goddesses, swamp witches, and pagan sorceresses as her aesthetic influences.  She has performed largely
throughout Ottawa, Toronto, and Montreal for the past five years,
including at the Ottawa Burlesque Festival as a performer and Member
of the Board, the Capital Burlesque Expo, with the Suicide Girls’
Blackhearts Burlesque show, at the Wiggle Room and the Morbid
Fascination Show in Montreal, and most recently debuted two new rope
bondage performances. Killsey’s obsessive affair with rope bondage
began in January 2018 after working with local rope artist Keeper, and
she now ties and performs solo as well, having recently been accepted
into Montreal’s Nuit Des Cordes 2019. As a model, she has extensive
experience with nude fine art modeling around Ottawa and has recently
moved into modeling collaboratively for artistic projects. Killsey
also carries a degree in Medieval and Renaissance Studies and a deep
passion for witchcraft that heavily influences her creative work. With
the heart of a warrior, the hands of a sorceress, and hips that beat
with war drums, the Battle Axe of Burlesque is here to conquer your
