Bridal Burlesque Beauty: Chow Mein

Earlier this year I had the absolute pleasure of designing and creating a wedding dress for the sweetest gal I know, Chow Mein of The Harlettes.  A vintage beauty with a twist, Chow’s gown was actually a romper and skirt combo allowing her all the elegance of a gown with the functionality of shorts!  In a beautiful, creamy off-white the ensemble was decorated with hundreds of appliquéd flowers, beads and crystals and the look was topped off with a simple flower crown.  I was so thrilled to have been able to contribute to the happy couple’s special day!  Please enjoy some photos from the occasion of the radiant Chow and Mr. Mein!

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!

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.
