I have another puuuurfect photoset this week from my recent shoot with Photolena! Part one of my Kitty Kitty Meow set featuring this fabulous headpiece from the fantastic Leelando Calrissian and my self-made Barbie Girl lingerie.

Leelando Calrissian is flaunting his feminine side with this week’s flirtatious photoset. Bringing Bettie Page realness, this vintage-loving vixen is tight laced, tucked and totally in control. Looks like man-candy, Matt Muir, needs a little lesson in discipline from Mistress Leelando.
You can catch drag/burlesque beauty Leelando at Spielberg-lesque on March 5th at the Great Hall in Toronto. Click here to purchase tickets to this Peepshow TO production.
2015 was a spectacular year for me! I went to New York City, Orlando, Montreal and Detroit. I performed in the Girlesque Expo, the Toronto Burlesque Festival and Pride Toronto. I got three new tattoos including a BFF tattoo with Betty Quirk. I watched one of my best friends get married. I launched Dolly Shots Photography. But most importantly I had a blast doing all these things with my fabulous friends.
The theme of this year for me was Girl Power! I continue to surround myself with the smartest, funniest and coolest group of gals who are constantly inspiring me. They are loving and supportive and always there to give advice, encouragement or share a cute cat photo! I feel so lucky and blessed to have these women in my life.
I have big plans ahead for next year! Stay tuned for more fabulousness in 2016!
The producers of Peepshow TO have come out with a fabulous new line of matte lipsticks to help Level Up Your Lips! Whether you are a Sevvy, Betty or Leelando, there is a shade for you in this new collection. Perfect for perking up your cosplay or wear everyday to brighten your look! You can get these fabulous lipsticks at the next Peepshow TO show, Super Smash Bras, which is this Saturday September 25th at the Great Hall in Toronto.
This week’s photoset stars the captivating Leelando Calrissian shot by none other than myself! Crossplayer extraordinaire Leelando gives us his take on Bettie Page as the Rocketeer. With costume completely created by Leelando himself this pretty pinup embodies the classic comic creation with a gender-bending twist. Enjoy!
It’s hard to believe 2014 is finally coming to a close. This year has been so full of joy and success, good times and great friends. I have a new job which I love so much and is the start of a wonderful career. I have the most amazing group of friends a girl could ever ask for, not to mention the cutest kitten on the planet. And I’ve been able to express my creativity through so many amazing fashion photo shoots and design projects. I performed in an international burlesque festival, got a giant mermaid tattoo, met two of my idols (Yaya Han and Tess Munster) and I even started this blog. I can’t believe what a lucky girl I am and I feel so incredibly thankful to have had all these experiences.
So here we go. This is my year in photos; memories from most of the big events, photo shoots, friends, lots and lots of friends and the most fabulous fashions. Thank you for following my blog and I wish the happiest New Year to you all!
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.
My wonderfully multi-talented friend Ketzia Kobrah has begun working on a video project called the Brick Wall Sessions. This series of videos features burlesque performers doing titillating one minute stripteases. My lovely friends Betty Quirk and Leelando Calrissian and I were the first few participants in this series. We each did a solo routine and Betty and I also did our go-go dancing duet. I have my videos on www.missdollymonroe.com in my new burlesque tab but you can see all the videos from the Brick Wall Sessions here! Ketzia is still looking for participants in this project, so if you are a burlesque performer, in Toronto and interested in being a part of this series please comment below. For now I leave you with this cute teaser video…
