Pinup Photo Safari

This year I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender in Las Vegas!  One of the excursions that I participated in was the Photo Safari in which models and photographers are bused around Vegas to shoot in fabulous locations.  I had a blast at the Safari and was lucky enough to get some wonderful photos from the experience.  Here are a few of my favourites!

Enjoy!

The Fuck Dress

I am thrilled to share this week’s photoset with you as it features one of my favourite dresses from the NYC designer Storm Ritter.  I stumbled into Storm’s studio in New York a few years ago and fell in love with her bold prints, bright colourful graphics and playful sense of humour.  The Fuck Dress is something I fell in love with the moment I laid eyes upon it and I’m so glad that Lunar Replicant and I were able to create such wonderful images featuring this beautiful garment!

Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender 2019

Viva Las Vegas!!

Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of attending my very first Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender!  For those who don’t know, BHOF is a weekend long convention celebrating everything Burlesque including the Tournament of Tease, a competition to crown that year’s burlesque royalty, and events that raise funds to support the Burlesque Hall of Fame Museum and our Burlesque Legends.

The weekend was packed full of events and I enjoyed many of them with my glamourous squad of Burly-Q Babes; Zyra Lee Vanity, Betty Quirk and Zilly Lilly! From the Photo Safari to the Sunday Pool Party to visiting the Burlesque Museum, the good times kept rolling and there was never a dull moment!

One of the highlights of the weekend was getting to see one of my dearest friends, Zilly Lilly, take the stage for the Movers, Shakers and Innovators showcase on Thursday Night to perform her legendary Beauty & The Beast Nerdlesque number.  She certainly made our Canadian crew proud as she danced her way through a Disney Princess rendition of NIN’s Closer in front of a massive audience of her peers!

This weekend was truly inspirational to me.  Seeing the Burlesque Legends, hearing their stories and learning about the history of the art form gave me a deeper respect for what we do.  Being surrounded by the queerest, most passionate and innovative performers of our time was nothing short of breathtaking.  I am coming off of this weekend with such a love and respect for this community and a sense of belonging in this crazy group of performing weirdos!

I hope you enjoy some fun photos from our crazy Vegas weekend!
