The Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque

The Nerd Girl Burlesque troupe has been bringing their brand of Nerdy Burlesque to Toronto stages since 2012.  The original members Delicia PasticheHelen of Tronna and Loretta Jean have recently brought on Henrietta VIII to complete the bevy of beautiful nerds running their troupe.  Along with the help of the ever hilarious host Reddy TaRumble, these ladies continue to produce monthly Nerdlesque shows in our fine city.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at the softer side of the Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque through my intimate photo series with the gals.  You can see them all at their upcoming show Level Up- An Evening of Video Game Burlesque on August 25th at See-Scape.

Please enjoy my first set of photos of The Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque!
