The vivacious vixen Meryle Trouble is the model of the week. Meryle is a talented actor and singer with lots of voice work under her belt. If you want to hear that her sexy voice in action she is currently starring in two cartoons Crack Duck and Parenthesis Humor. You can hear her in both these series on Adult Swim [Canada]’s show Night Sweats, which will soon be airing on Adult Swim [US].
Meryle is also taking painting commissions and will be selling pre-made paintings through her website starting in the next few weeks. Follow Meryle on Instagram and Twitter for more updates!

My beautiful, talented friend Meryle Trouble is the Dolly Shots model of the week! Merlye is a fantastic singer, dancer, voice actor and generally creative person. We shot a ton of stuff together during our most recent photoshoot and here is just a taste from our collaboration. 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!

Last weekend I had a wonderful time exploring the insanity that is Atomic Lollipop which took place at the Ontario Science Centre! For those who don’t know what A Pop is, it is a convention that brings together cosplayers, ravers, nerds, gamers, larpers, lolita fashionistas, celebrity guests and so much more. It’s really hard to describe what exactly A Pop is, so I’m going to let this video explain…
Personally, I had a great time going to panels about Gender, LGBT comics, Burlesque, Crossplay and Lolita fashion, seeing performances from Pizza Underground, Illuminair Entertainment and Boylesque TO, performing for Peepshow TO, checking out the amazing vendors, participating in a lightsaber battle and so much more! Check out my insta-photos from last weekend’s Atomic Lollipop Con!
This past weekend I had an absolutely fabulous time celebrating World Pride in Toronto!
As an openly bisexual woman it is so important to me to celebrate Pride and show my support as a member of the LGBT community. I feel empowered being a part of such a humongous group of not just Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Trans people, but also all the weirdos, freaks, and artistic creative types like myself who were celebrating. It makes me feel like I am part of a much bigger community when I see such vast crowds of like-minded people declaring that they are proud to be who they are. I was so happy that Toronto got to be the host for World Pride 2014 and I feel lucky to live in this great city where I do feel safe to be openly, genuinely ME!
The party started on Thursday evening. I lined up early and got into the Starry Night event at the 519 Green Space where I had the pleasure of seeing Ru Paul’s Drag Race’s top 4 Queens from this season, Darienne Lake, Courtney Act, Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio, doing their thing on stage. On Friday night I joined my friends at Exicted Mental State (aka EMS), the Toronto Rocky Horror cast, at their pride show. The main event was the parade on Sunday, in which I strutted the parade route in my new self-made mermaid ensemble!
I had a blast this past saturday at the Peepshow TO Late Night Toon Tease Nerdlesque show!! Performers stripped as their favourite adult cartoon characters such as Leela from Futurama, Jane Lane from Daria, Gimpy from Undergrads, Molotov Cocktease from Venture Brothers and so many more. The show was amazing, with so many creative costumes, acts and song choices. The stage, which was set with old school televisions, created such a lovely atmosphere to witness these cartoon characters coming to life. Congrats to Peepshow TO on another wonderful show!
I love making outfits for Meryle Trouble because she always has such wonderfully creative ideas! About a year ago Meryle came to me with the psychedelic 60s floral fabric and let me run wild with it. The result was this fabulous, fun dress! I love the way this look turned out and Meryle is totally rocking it!
I am so excited to be part of the Peepshow Clipshow this coming Saturday May 3rd at the Drake Underground in Toronto! For those who don’t know, PeepshowTO is one of the best Nerdlesque troupes and regularly puts on sold-out shows with themes like Marvelesque, Tarantino Tease and Apocalust. The Peepshow Clipshow is going to be a compilation of some of the best acts from past shows. I will be performing as Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones. You won’t want to miss this event, seriously, I highly recommend getting tickets in advance because it’s very likely that this show will sell out!
A few months ago myself and a bunch of my burlesque pals (Betty Quirk, Sevvy Skellington, Meryle Trouble and Dante Him) had a burlesque themed photoshoot with Haley Frisen for her thesis project and here are some of the results!
