2016 was a really hard year for everyone. It certainly wasn’t a year I will look back on fondly for many reasons. However, as I sifted through the photos for this post, there were many moments of laughter and fun sprinkled throughout. I always like to look on the bright side and so despite everything we’ve been through, here are some happy memories and pictures from 2016.
This year I traveled to New York, Montreal and Mexico! I had a wonderful time modelling for Raezor Latex and participating with them in Montreal Fetish Weekend. I performed in four spectacular Peepshow TO productions, three of which involved choreographing brand new group/duet routines with some of the most amazing Nerdlesque performers I know. I met my personal fashion inspiration Dita Von Teese! I got three new tattoos, including one that I got with my mom of the two of us as matryoshka dolls. I further developed my portfolio as a model and as a photographer. I made three wedding dresses and got to see two of my best friends marry each other!
I guess this year wasn’t so bad after all. Here’s to an even better 2017! Happy New Year!
Henrietta VIII is the most powerful crime lord in the galaxy and Betty Quirk is exactly her kind of scum. Being dangerous space criminals has never looked so good! These ladies are ready to showcase the perfect balance of flawless pinup style and a total lack of morals.
Betty Quirk may have no love for the empire – but she loves to pose in her finest Mandalorian armour exactly “as you wish”. Ho ho ho… Be careful to stay on Henrietta’s good side because this Hutt does not take kindly to disappointments. When not posing for the camera she enjoys decorating her home with people who have betrayed her, frozen in carbonite. Don’t worry though – both of these sci-fi femme fatales agree that you’re no good to them dead!
The dazzling Henrietta VIII returns this week for another pinup inspired set from my Glamour Girl photoshoot! Decked out in some fabulous pasties from Delicia’s Delights and done to the nines by my fantastic hair and makeup team, Henrietta beams with beauty. You can catch this burlesquer next at the Peepshow Go show on September 16th at the Great Hall!
The beautiful blue haired Sevvy Skellington is the model of the week! Sevvy is an artist, working in set and graphic design. She is also a work of art herself, with a striking alternative beauty. Sevvy is also co-producer and performer for Peepshow TO. You can see her perform this summer at Revenge of the Strip: A Star Wars Burlesque Tribute. Please enjoy these pinup pics of Sevvy Skellington!

2015 was a spectacular year for me! I went to New York City, Orlando, Montreal and Detroit. I performed in the Girlesque Expo, the Toronto Burlesque Festival and Pride Toronto. I got three new tattoos including a BFF tattoo with Betty Quirk. I watched one of my best friends get married. I launched Dolly Shots Photography. But most importantly I had a blast doing all these things with my fabulous friends.
The theme of this year for me was Girl Power! I continue to surround myself with the smartest, funniest and coolest group of gals who are constantly inspiring me. They are loving and supportive and always there to give advice, encouragement or share a cute cat photo! I feel so lucky and blessed to have these women in my life.
I have big plans ahead for next year! Stay tuned for more fabulousness in 2016!
It’s hard to believe 2014 is finally coming to a close. This year has been so full of joy and success, good times and great friends. I have a new job which I love so much and is the start of a wonderful career. I have the most amazing group of friends a girl could ever ask for, not to mention the cutest kitten on the planet. And I’ve been able to express my creativity through so many amazing fashion photo shoots and design projects. I performed in an international burlesque festival, got a giant mermaid tattoo, met two of my idols (Yaya Han and Tess Munster) and I even started this blog. I can’t believe what a lucky girl I am and I feel so incredibly thankful to have had all these experiences.
So here we go. This is my year in photos; memories from most of the big events, photo shoots, friends, lots and lots of friends and the most fabulous fashions. Thank you for following my blog and I wish the happiest New Year to you all!
One of my absolute favourite artists in Toronto is the one and only Suspiria. This talented chick has a style all her own. Drawing inspiration from classic horror, the female figure and her own twisted imagination, Suspiria’s work walks the line between girly and gory. She creates dark fantasies through many mediums including paintings, tattoos and recently dolls. Suspiria’s latest creation is a series of Terror Tot dolls with painted faces and bellies stitched onto plush, handmade bodies. You may also recall the wonderful mermaid tattoo I got from Suspiria earlier this year. I am constantly stunned by the outstanding tattoos I see this talented lady creating. She is skilled at both very realistic, almost photo-like tattoos (see the wicked witch below) as well as her own unique style of cartoony, girly pinups and animals (check out the franken-babe with bat buddy below).
Check out Suspiria Land to purchase prints, terror tots or to set up a tattoo consultation.
