Dolly Monroe A-Go-Go

This Go-Go inspired photoset was shot by the lovely Tyrone Islington.  I had a really fun time with this shoot, which took place in my apartment and features some of my favourite classic cult movie posters.  This costume is from a duet burlesque act that I perform with Betty Quirk inspired by the Russ Meyer film Faster Pussycat Kill Kill so I was happy to shoot it in from of my poster for the film.  Enjoy!

Laura Desiree at the Toronto Burlesque Festival

Once again the lovely and talented Laura Desiree dominated the stage in her Rock n Roll Red Fringe outfit created by me! This time it was at the Toronto Burlesque Festival’s opening show where she strutted her stuff before a packed house of burlesque enthusiasts and performers.  Since the last time I blogged about this outfit we added another piece which is the flowing red satin skirt with fringe detail from waist to hip.  I love what the skirt added to the overall outfit and I think it finishes the look perfectly.  Check out these wonderful photos from photographer Ruth Gillson of the gorgeous Laura Desiree at the Toronto Burlesque Festival!
