Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender 2019

Viva Las Vegas!!

Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of attending my very first Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender!  For those who don’t know, BHOF is a weekend long convention celebrating everything Burlesque including the Tournament of Tease, a competition to crown that year’s burlesque royalty, and events that raise funds to support the Burlesque Hall of Fame Museum and our Burlesque Legends.

The weekend was packed full of events and I enjoyed many of them with my glamourous squad of Burly-Q Babes; Zyra Lee Vanity, Betty Quirk and Zilly Lilly! From the Photo Safari to the Sunday Pool Party to visiting the Burlesque Museum, the good times kept rolling and there was never a dull moment!

One of the highlights of the weekend was getting to see one of my dearest friends, Zilly Lilly, take the stage for the Movers, Shakers and Innovators showcase on Thursday Night to perform her legendary Beauty & The Beast Nerdlesque number.  She certainly made our Canadian crew proud as she danced her way through a Disney Princess rendition of NIN’s Closer in front of a massive audience of her peers!

This weekend was truly inspirational to me.  Seeing the Burlesque Legends, hearing their stories and learning about the history of the art form gave me a deeper respect for what we do.  Being surrounded by the queerest, most passionate and innovative performers of our time was nothing short of breathtaking.  I am coming off of this weekend with such a love and respect for this community and a sense of belonging in this crazy group of performing weirdos!

I hope you enjoy some fun photos from our crazy Vegas weekend!

Sandcastles

It’s February and it feels like the winter will never end.  Mountains of snow and ice are piled up in every corner, framing every sidewalk and path. Each step is delicate and calculated.  Every movement is slow and steady.  And I am dreaming of sandcastles…

Back in the summer of 2018 I shot some incredible photos with the magnificent team that is Khristianina and Katherine Bermudo.  Sisters with an eye for design who work both independently and together to create wonderful imagery.  Khristianina is the talented photographer behind Barefaced Creative and specializes in capturing moments, emotion and detail.  Katherine is a phenomenal graphic artist and creative visionary who I have worked with many times and who designed this blog as well as my personal website www.missdollymonroe.com.  The three of us together on a beach was the perfect combination to create something truly special!

I hope you enjoy this week’s photoset and I look forward to sharing the rest with you as the snow melts around us!  Enjoy!
