2016: A Slightly Less Fabulous Year

2016 was a really hard year for everyone.  It certainly wasn’t a year I will look back on fondly for many reasons.  However, as I sifted through the photos for this post, there were many moments of laughter and fun sprinkled throughout.  I always like to look on the bright side and so despite everything we’ve been through, here are some happy memories and pictures from 2016.

This year I traveled to New York, Montreal and Mexico!  I had a wonderful time modelling for Raezor Latex and participating with them in Montreal Fetish Weekend.  I performed in four spectacular Peepshow TO productions, three of which involved choreographing brand new group/duet routines with some of the most amazing Nerdlesque performers I know.  I met my personal fashion inspiration Dita Von Teese!  I got three new tattoos, including one that I got with my mom of the two of us as matryoshka dolls.  I further developed my portfolio as a model and as a photographer.  I made three wedding dresses and got to see two of my best friends marry each other!

I guess this year wasn’t so bad after all.  Here’s to an even better 2017!  Happy New Year!

Betty’s next big burlesque production will be taking place on September 17th at the Great Hall in Toronto and will centre on the latest pop culture trend; Pokemon Go!  Come see myself, Betty and many other burlesquers evolving into their final forms at Peepshow Go! More info coming soon.

Eevee Burlesque at Super Smash Bras

On September 25th at the Great Hall in Toronto myself and my lovely burlesque buddies debuted a new act for the Super Smash Bra Nerdlesque show!  Peepshow TO put on this fun Nintendo themed show with acts featuring your favourite Nintendo characters.  Our group chose to represent Pokemon with an act inspired by Eevee and her evolutions Flareon and Vaporeon.  In this act Flareon (Delicia Pastiche) and Vaporeon (Henrietta VIII) are fighting over what type of Pokemon Eevee (myself) should evolve into.  After showing me the basics of pokemon stripping I decide not to choose either and instead become a Jolteon!

Please enjoy some fun photos from this act by Ruth Gillson, Chris Hutcheson and Lick My Lens Cap Photography!
