Masuimi Max.

She's a burlesque dancer and fetish model whose influence might only be second to Dita Von Teese and she's heading our way for a handful for appearances.

She is the Queen of Trouble, Masuimi Max, and between appearing in movies like David Lynch's Inland Empire, she's also an avid entrepreneur.

She'll be showing us her secretary and booty call burlesque acts with rockabilly heroes Fireballs this weekend, and appearing at the Flesh Valentine's Party, but that's not all she'll be doing in Perth.

Masuimi and her husband, punk-rock journalist and photographer Morat, set up shoots in every town they visit.

The vivacious muse says the shoot ideas come from the most random places.

"A lot of my shoot ideas come from things like artwork or songs or shoes," she says.

"Or it can be something really simple, like I did a Jessica Rabbit-inspired shoot that was pretty straightforward.

"I have these sparkly red shoes and I might do a shoot that is inspired by a character that wears shoes like that, like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz."

The spokesmodel for 50s-inspired clothing line PinUp Girl is about to relaunch her own line of make-up called I Am Sin, and is on the look-out for alternative models to help spruik her wares. "I'm going to look for a lot of variety so each model will look very different from the next model," she says.

"Each line will be very themed. We'll have a pin-up line, we'll have a gothic one, and we'll have one that's all colourful for girls that have very colourful hair.

"We'll be doing video tutorials on how to do different make-up looks, and it's been a lot of hard work but I am really excited."

There are a few more projects in the works, such as a memoir and even a television show that are set to keep her busy this year.

"Yep, that is a female wrestling comedy show, but it's a secret project," she teases.

Masuimi Max performs alongside Fireballs at Lowdown at the Civic Hotel on February 16 and the Newport on February 17 and at the Flesh Valentine's Party at Shape on February 15.
