Eeveelutions: Gotta Catch em All!

My Eeveelution friends and I took a little stroll through High Park with Tyrone Islington to take some fun photos!  Delicia Pastiche as Flareon, Henrietta VIII as Vaporeon and myself as Eevee perform together in an Eeveelution Nerdlesque Act in these fun burlesquified Pokemon Cosplays.  We had a lot of fun, and met a lot of dogs, during this photoshoot!  I’m so happy to share these photos with you!

Enchanted Forest

As you must know by now, I love to surround myself with beautiful ladies.  I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to photograph one of the most beautiful ladies I know recently; burlesque babe Gala Delicious.

Gala is a fantastic burlesque performer who is both elegant and graceful yet subversive and edgy in her routines.  Miss Delicious is also the producer behind Queen of Cups in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Is it any surprise that this talented lady was also awarded “Most Beautiful” at the 2015 Great Burlesque Expo in Boston?  Of course not!

While on holiday in Toronto I implored Gala and Delicia Pastiche to bare their burlesque all for some enchanted woodland photos in our glorious High Park.  Here are the results!

Flower Fairies

Delicia Pastiche and Henrietta VIII are showing us a softer side for this week’s photo set.  These little lovelies are all done up in pastels and flower crowns and look simply sweet as pie!

In complete contrast, you can see both these burlesque babes baring it all at the upcoming Star Wars themed burlesque show: Revenge of the Strip.  This show is sure to be the Nerdlesque hit of the summer, so you absolutely will not want to miss out!

You can also catch Delicia on July 2nd performing in the Pride Celebrations in Toronto.  You’ll want to head on over to Church and Wellesley for a performance marathon of Burlesque, Drag and so much more!
