Forgotten Photos from Russ Meyer

Russ Meyer was not only known for his scandalous films featuring voluptuous vixens, he was also a popular photographer of the female form.  His photos showcase the unique love he had for women.  They are joyous, relaxed, playful and captivating, just like the women in the photographs.  As an huge fan of pinup photography I find Meyer’s to be some of the most striking and creative work from that era.  He has an obvious love for each model and does a wonderful job of showcasing all her finest features.  Enjoy some of my favourite shots from Russ Meyer.

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!

Garters of the Galaxy

Our final Peepshow TO show by all means should have been a sad affair.  It was the final time our amazing group of performers and friends would come together to put on the biggest and best nerdlesque show in town.  The last time we would all gather backstage, getting ready and gabbing, swapping eyelash glue and pastie tape.  The final collective feeling of putting on a show that was truly entertaining, inspiring and unique.  But instead of feeling loss and despair I could not imagine a more electric evening.  There was a buzz in the air from the minute the Great Hall began filling up.  Every seat was taken and still people stood to watch what can only be described as one of the greatest shows that we have ever created.  From start to finish the energy was palpable.  Not one lull or low moment was felt and the volume of cheers and laughs echoed endlessly through the night. Every performer brought their best and the roaring crowd pushed each of us to be that much better.

I feel so lucky to have such talented, inspiring and loving friends and to have had so many opportunities to work with these amazing people.  Even though this was the last Peepshow event (for now anyways) I couldn’t be sad for even one second because my mind is filled with all the wonderful moments I have shared with this group.

Thank you Leelando, Sevvy and Betty for giving us a stage to perform on, for making it possible for us to come together as a team and for working so tirelessly to ensure each event has been more outstanding than the last.  Thank you to all the performers who have constantly pushed each other to be more creative simply by being endlessly creative themselves.  Thank you to Rena, Mong Tho, Amie and everyone who has worked backstage throughout the past few years.  Without you we would be utterly lost.  And finally, thanks to everyone who has come out to support our shows.  Hearing the excitement in your cheers is the fuel that drives us.

The final curtain has closed.  The show has concluded.  But I promise this is not the last you will hear or see of the members of the PeepshowTO family.
