It has been such a pleasure to share my Beyond the Valley of the Dolls photos with you over the past few months. My beautiful Dolls were a vision in their vintage attire and I’m so thankful for having the chance to work with Dottie, Bianca, Ivory, Betty and Sevvy.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some photos I took of the lovely ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque, so stay tuned!
For now, I leave you with the divine Dottie Champagne featuring Bianca Boom Boom! Both these babes will be back again in the fall with my next photoshoot theme Bondage Bombshells! Keep coming back because you won’t want to miss a thing!
The beautiful Betty Quirk is back this week with more 60s, vintage realness!
Betty has been stunning audiences with her incredibly detailed nerdy burlesque acts and her extravagant Nerdlesque productions with Peepshow TO. You can catch Betty next performing at the Toronto Burlesque Festival at their Pop Culture show on July 22nd at the Mod Club.
Congrats to Sevvy and the entire PeepshowTO Crew on pulling off another amazing show on Friday night for I Have Misplaced My Pants: A Classic Simpsons Burlesque Tribute! You can see Sevvy on Saturday, June 17th at Yeti Con for Comic Book Burlesque!
The incredibly curvaceous beauty Ivory is here to slay in this week’s tribute to Beyond the Valley of the Dolls!
This Burlesque Babe will be performing all around Toronto over the next month. You can catch Ivory on June 13th acting in Daughters of Lilith at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, on June 22nd at Steers & Queers, June 23rd at AlternaQueer as part of PRIDE 2017 and Ivory will be joining an amazing cast of all plus size performers, including myself, on June 27th for Dangerous Curves Burlesque at Revival in Toronto.
Bianca Boom Boom is bringing the vintage glamour in this week’s ode to Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.
I was so excited to have Bianca join me for this particular photoshoot because I know she has a stellar collection of vintage garments. This psychedelic metallic dress is the perfect embodiment of 60s glamour and style and Bianca is rocking it! You can see this vintage vixen performing on June 11th at Striptease and Cheese and this summer at the Toronto Burlesque Festival!
This weekend I celebrated my 26th birthday! To keep the celebration going I thought I would share this fabulous photoset from my recent shoot with Photolena. I’ve been a huge fan of Photolena for so long that I couldn’t resist the opportunity to work with her. We shot a ton of stuff together, so expect to see more in the next few months.
First up is our 70s themed disco girl set. I love 70s fashion and decided to go full on roller girl, minus the skates, for my first look. I created this outfit myself and found the perfect accessories to complete the ensemble. I hope you enjoy Disco Dolly!
I have been such a busy lady recently and have been focusing way more energy on photography than modelling. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to receive some new/old photos from shoot I did way back in 2o14. Michael Terry of DWS took these amazing photos of me in this David Bowie themed room. Enjoy!
One of my favourite vintage trends for summer is the two piece playsuit! The term ‘playsuit’ is usually used to refer to a garment that combines a top and shorts all in one (also known as a ‘romper’) or a top and pants (also know as a ‘jumpsuit’). You could also use the term ‘playsuit’ to refer to a combination top and bottom that are made from the same fabric, or combination of fabrics, also known as a two piece playsuit. The bottoms on a two piece playsuit could be pants, shorts, a skort or a skirt.
The two piece playsuit speaks to a time when quality and custom clothing was more common in fashion. Nowadays most of the clothing we buy is mass produced in factories overseas and is cheaply made and not meant to last. In the 1940s, 50s and 60s when you were likely to see this kind of playsuit set they were often made by tailors, local designers, and from home-sew patterns and included fun matching details that made the separates a completely co-ordinated outfit. To me the two piece playsuit is not only very convenient and practical (who doesn’t love co-ordinating separates?) but it also looks elegant and super sweet!
