2017 was a very strange year. There were lots of fun, happy memories but also a lot of very trying moments.
This year I travelled quite a lot to Montreal and New York City and also added Freeport, Bahamas to my travel list. I performed once again as part of the Toronto Burlesque Festival, at Toronto Pride, at Yeti Con, for the Ladies of Burlesque at the Royal, and in all 3 of the Peepshow TO productions. I had the pleasure of seeing the musical Hamilton twice in New York City. I went to Drag Con NY, the Bagel Burlesque Expo, Yeti Con and Fan Expo. I got a new tattoo from Genevieve FT. And I got to see two of my favourite people get married in a Jewish/Indian/Lord of the Rings wedding!
All in all this year has really taught me who the important people are in my life and to cherish those relationships. I’ve worked really hard this year to accomplish my goals but I know this is only the beginning. Look out 2018, I’m coming for you!!
This year for Halloween I decided to embody the pinnacle of extravagance and luxury; the Queen Bitch herself, Marie Antoinette. I made this fun little costume for a screening of Marie Antoinette I performed at recently with the Ladies of Burlesque at the Royal Cinema. Guild Park and Gardens in Toronto served as the perfect setting for this shoot. Enjoy!
Tomorrow evening at the Royal Cinema in Toronto Ladies of Burlesque will be screening the classic David Lynch film and prequel to Twin Peaks; Fire Walk With Me. There will also be a very special Burlesque pre-show featuring Betty Quirk and I as Shelly and Norma and the gorgeous Zilly Lilly as the Log Lady.
To get you in the mood here are some photos from our Fire Strip with Me show last month from Photolena!
This Burlesque Babe has a real Tura Satana vibe with her raven hair, winged eyeliner and the way she combines strength and seductiveness. You can see Lorelei embracing her inner Russ Meyer girl on July 28th at The Royal Cinema for the Ladies of Burlesque’s screening of Faster Pussycat Kill Kill featuring Lorelei as the burlesque entertainment for the evening.
