I had another lovely photoshoot last week with Tyrone Islington in my Batwoman Burlesque Cosplay. This fantastic costume goes with a Nerdlesque act that I haven’t performed in quite a while, but will be reviving this summer for the Peepshow TO performance at Yeti Con! If you haven’t gotten your Yeti Con tickets yet, don’t miss out!
The beautiful, bubbly Betty Quirk is ready to shimmy and shake in her 60s Go-Go Fringe in this week’s Beyond the Valley of the Dolls photoset!
This burlesque performer/producer is gearing up for another fantastic production with Peepshow TO called I Have Misplaced My Pants: A Classic Simpsons Burlesque Tribute. Betty will be bringing to life an iconic Simpsons character on June 9th at the Great Hall in Toronto. Tickets are going FAST, so get yours today!!
Tomorrow evening at the Royal Cinema in Toronto Ladies of Burlesque will be screening the classic David Lynch film and prequel to Twin Peaks; Fire Walk With Me. There will also be a very special Burlesque pre-show featuring Betty Quirk and I as Shelly and Norma and the gorgeous Zilly Lilly as the Log Lady.
To get you in the mood here are some photos from our Fire Strip with Me show last month from Photolena!
The sultry Sevvy Skellington is in a daze from all those dolls on this week’s Beyond the Valley of the Dolls photoset!
This Nerdlesque producer and performer is part of the Peepshow TO team who are hard at work on their next production I Have Misplaced My Pants: A Classic Simpsons Burlesque Tribute. With Simpsons superfan Sevvy’s eye on this production it is certain to be jam packed with hilarious references and saucy impressions of your favourite Simpsons characters!
Bianca Boom Boom and Ivory are a couple of knockouts in this week’s sultry photoset. Draped only in luxurious faux-fur these babes aren’t afraid to show a little flesh. You can see both these burlesque beauties on May 7th at Revival for Fantastic Breasts and Where to Find Them: Wizarding Burlesque.
My doll of the week is none other than the delightful Dottie Champagne! This little darling is a newbie Burlesquer with a seriously glamourous vintage appeal. Decked out in a family heirloom and a little bit of faux-fur, Dottie is ready for glass of champagne!
I’m back from a refreshing break with a new energy and some tricks up my sleeve!
I am so excited to share the photos from my latest photoshoot with you! As always, I drew a lot of my inspiration from Russ Meyer and so, since I’ve already done The Valley of the Dolls, this new set is called Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.
These gorgeous burlesque beauties were the perfect models for this 60s nostalgic theme and it was an absolutely pleasure capturing Bianca Boom Boom, Sevvy Skellington, Betty Quirk, Dottie Champagne and Ivory in this pink dream set.
Please enjoy the first instalment of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls…
On January 18th 2014 I started this blog as a way to express myself creatively through fashion, art and photography. I am so proud that after 3 years I am still posting new content almost every week. I am also so thankful to have found a loving audience who appreciates the work I am putting out and encourages me to continue to create more.
As I pass my third anniversary and as the demand grows, I have decided to stop and take some time to improve my technical skills and upgrade my equipment. I’ve purchased my domain for this blog, which means I’ve dropped the .wordpress and am simply www.classicallycurvy.com! I am taking a photography class and have a brand new full frame camera in my kit! I am so excited for what the future holds and the opportunity to share the journey with you!
So, what does that mean? I’m going to be posting a lot less in the next few months. I might have a few things to share along the way, but I will be back officially at the beginning of April with the second edition of The Valley of the Dolls. Stay tuned for more glamour, more glitter and more 60s psychedelia as I relaunch Dolly Shots Photography!
See you then!
It’s been a long time coming but I have finally done a massive overall to my personal website www.missdollymonroe.com!
Check it out and let me know what you think!
I am so happy to share these 60s Go-Go inspired photos with you! This is the final set I shot with the incredible Photolena and is definitely my favourite.
