Beyond the Valley of the Dolls with Dottie Champagne

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!

A Sprinkle of Saffron St. James

This week’s Glamour Girl is the sensual Saffron St. James.

Saffron St. James is an Hourglass and a Half and can be seen performing with Ottawa’s premiere Nerdlesque troupe; Browncoats Burlesque.  She was the winner of the Ottawa Burlesque Festival’s 2014 Burlesque Idol competition in her first year of performing.  Her lively and vibrant personality comes through so much in her expressions and she was an absolute pleasure to work with on this shoot.

Lorelei the Burlesque Babe

First up from my new series Glamour Girls is the fierce and frisky Lorelei!

This Burlesque Babe has a real Tura Satana vibe with her raven hair, winged eyeliner and the way she combines strength and seductiveness.  You can see Lorelei embracing her inner Russ Meyer girl on July 28th at The Royal Cinema for the Ladies of Burlesque’s screening of Faster Pussycat Kill Kill featuring Lorelei as the burlesque entertainment for the evening.

Glamour Girl Photoshoot

Once again I have had the pleasure of working with an amazing group of glamourous ladies for a fantastic, fun-filled photoshoot!  My hair and makeup team of Natasha and Gail slayed once again on the styling for this pinup themed shoot.

My beautiful models were Saffron St James, Natasha, Jennifer, Henrietta VIII, Betty Quirk and Lorelei.  Here’s a little taste of what we did with more to come in the coming posts!

Hello Dolly

I’m so happy to share another lovely photoset from my shoot with Photolena!  This look was inspired by the classic pinups of the 1950s.  In a sparkly blue dress made by me and a white faux-fur from my amazing friend Leelando, I am taking some important calls.

Enjoy!

Jessica Rabbit

One of my favourite cartoon characters of all time is the voluptuous vixen Jessica Rabbit.  Who better to portray Jessica than the Triple B with the Double Ds: Bianca Boom Boom!  This burlesque beauty looks smoldering in the glittery gown created by my Betty Monroe bestie Betty Quirk.  If you want to see more of Bianca you can catch this lovely lady on May 21st at Thigh High: The Kush of Kabert as well as at this year’s Toronto Burlesque Festival at the end of July.

Please enjoy some very classic curves from Bianca Boom Boom, a real life Jessica Rabbit!
