2018: A Year of Changes

2018 has been a transitional year.  It has been the uncomfortable growing stage in between leaving a past self behind and becoming a new creature.  It has been hard and it has been a journey but ultimately it has been worth it.

In 2018 I performed at the Fierce! International Queer Burlesque Festival, the Toronto Burlesque Festival, the ROM with Amplify Apparel, all three PeepshowTO productions, twice at Speakeasy at Revival, the Ladies of Burlesque at the Royal, Toronto Pride and my favourite place; Yeti Con! I even go-go danced in the elevator at the Toronto Reference Library for the Snailoween Party!  I travelled to New York and barely made it to Montreal, where I was sadly too ill to perform at the Bagel Burlesque Festival.

The biggest change in my life this year was leaving my soul-sucking, 9-5 office job for a more creative career path.  I have had some of my best photoshoots, both in front of and behind the camera and worked with a whole plethora of new and wonderful people!  I made a fabulous new costume for one of my favourite performers, Laura Desiree.  I celebrated the marriage of two of my dearest friends.  I got a new, badass tattoo of my idol Tura Satana from my girl Suspiria!  And to top off the whole year I move back into my apartment after nearly a year of extensive renovations!

I am now in the process of setting up Dolly Shots Studio for 2019 and I am so excited to share it with you!  Stay tuned next year for lots more fabulous-ity and beauty!

Happy New Year!!
