Leelando as Pinup Bettie

Leelando Calrissian is flaunting his feminine side with this week’s flirtatious photoset.  Bringing Bettie Page realness, this vintage-loving vixen is tight laced, tucked and totally in control.  Looks like man-candy, Matt Muir, needs a little lesson in discipline from Mistress Leelando.

You can catch drag/burlesque beauty Leelando at Spielberg-lesque on March 5th at the Great Hall in Toronto.  Click here to purchase tickets to this Peepshow TO production.

Brittany as King Henry VIII

I’m so excited to finally share this photoset!  My amazing friend Brittany, who has a Masters in Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies and is a huge fan of Tudor History, Crossplayed her hero King Henry VIII for the burlesque show Bad Boys of History. I had the pleasure of creating the outer layers of this ensemble, the beautiful hat was made by Apollonie, and the pasties and g-string (with sparkly codpiece) were crafted by Delicia’s Delights.   I thoroughly enjoyed shooting Brittany and the lovely Scarlett LaFlamme, as Anne Boleyn, in this hilarious take on these historical figures.  Brittany completely embodies King Henry in these photos, and I have even added a few historical portraits to really emphasis the brilliance of her cosplay. Enjoy!
