Beyond the Valley of the Dolls with Bianca Boom Boom

Bianca Boom Boom is bringing the vintage glamour in this week’s ode to Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

I was so excited to have Bianca join me for this particular photoshoot because I know she has a stellar collection of vintage garments.  This psychedelic metallic dress is the perfect embodiment of 60s glamour and style and Bianca is rocking it!  You can see this vintage vixen performing on June 11th at Striptease and Cheese and this summer at the Toronto Burlesque Festival!

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!

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

I’m back from a refreshing break with a new energy and some tricks up my sleeve!

I am so excited to share the photos from my latest photoshoot with you!  As always, I drew a lot of my inspiration from Russ Meyer and so, since I’ve already done The Valley of the Dolls, this new set is called Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

These gorgeous burlesque beauties were the perfect models for this 60s nostalgic theme and it was an absolutely pleasure capturing Bianca Boom Boom, Sevvy Skellington, Betty Quirk, Dottie Champagne and Ivory in this pink dream set.

Please enjoy the first instalment of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls…

Be Right Back

On January 18th 2014 I started this blog as a way to express myself creatively through fashion, art and photography.  I am so proud that after 3 years I am still posting new content almost every week.  I am also so thankful to have found a loving audience who appreciates the work I am putting out and encourages me to continue to create more.

As I pass my third anniversary and as the demand grows, I have decided to stop and take some time to improve my technical skills and upgrade my equipment.  I’ve purchased my domain for this blog, which means I’ve dropped the .wordpress and am simply www.classicallycurvy.com!  I am taking a photography class and have a brand new full frame camera in my kit!   I am so excited for what the future holds and the opportunity to share the journey with you!

So, what does that mean?  I’m going to be posting a lot less in the next few months.  I might have a few things to share along the way, but I will be back officially at the beginning of April with the second edition of The Valley of the Dolls.  Stay tuned for more glamour, more glitter and more 60s psychedelia as I relaunch Dolly Shots Photography!

See you then!
