This past weekend my friends from Peepshow TO and I put on our best cosplays and strutted our stuff at one of the biggest Nerd Conventions in North America: FAN EXPO!  Fan Expo brings together fans of Comics, Sci-Fi, Anime, Horror and Gaming for a weekend of geeky fun.  The Peepshowers had a booth in the Horror section of the con and spent most of our time advertising our next show Garters of the Galaxy: A Marvel Inspired Burlesque.  We had a blast chatting up con goers and posing for photos in cosplay.

This year I really over extended myself by attempting to do 2 brand new cosplays for the con.  On Friday the Peepshow crew did a Sparkly X-Men Group cosplay in which I portrayed the White Queen Emma Frost.  For the big day, Saturday, we did another group cosplay.  This time it was the DC Bombshells, which is a set of female DC characters as 1940s pinup girls.  For this group I did Supergirl, which was such fun to make and to wear.  On the final day I decided to wear an old favourite, my Batwoman burlesque cosplay.  Overall the highlight of the weekend was definitely getting to meet the Queen of Cosplay herself; Yaya Han!  Yaya is such an inspiration for me as a cosplayer.  Her costumes are flawless and she really embodies each character she portrays.

Please enjoy a few of my photos from this year’s Fan Expo…

Pussy Whipped Wednesday

Last night was Pussy Whipped Wednesday at the Boxine Sex Club in Toronto.  The lovely Laura Desiree produced the second monthly Dances the Cramps Taught Us event with burlesque performers and go-go dancers shaking it to songs by the Cramps.  My design partner/bff, Betty Quirk and I did our go-go/cat fight routine.  We were surrounded by lots of talented dancers including Tanya Cheex, Fionna Flauntit, Esther DeVille, Lorretta Jean and Aviva Mirage!
