Barbie Girl

This busy gal has been having a fun-filled, action-packed 2017!

I have really been enjoying flexing my creative muscles by being on the other side of the camera quite a bit this year.  In the spring I debuted my Beyond the Valley of the Dolls photo-series, followed by the Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque and I’m starting into fall with the Bondage Bombshells series.

 On the flip side, I have had a few really wonderful shoots of my own with some of Toronto’s finest photographers.  Today I thought I would start to release the images from what was possibly my favourite shoot of all time with the incredible Photolena!  This first set features my Vintage Barbie (with a twist) bathing suit, made by me for a burlesque act I debuted earlier this year.  I hope you enjoy!

Batwoman

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!

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!

In Bloom

This set of photos, which I shot recently with the wildly talented Photolena, showcases a very vulnerable side of myself.  I’ve been going through a lot lately in my personal life, but I feel confident that through the turmoil I will emerge fully formed and in bloom.
