New York and Nerdlesque

Well, I had a whirlwind trip to NYC last week with some of my burlesque peeps for the Nerdlesque Festival!  I left on Wednesday morning and returned very early Saturday.  Even though I wasn’t in New York for long I managed to pack in a lot of adventures, take a look…

Myself, Betty Quirk and Sevvy Skellington were representing PeepshowTO!
The first thing we did in NY was find some pizza!
Yum yum!
I wandered off on my own to find Mood! I’m so excited to make some new outfits with the fabrics I got there. Stay tuned…
I even got to meet Swatch!
In the evening we went to Cafe Un Deux Trois and the food was to die for… or kill for….
Then it was time for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, starring Neil Patrick Harris!
We may or may not have stalked NPH!
While wandering around Time Square we found a familiar face in Time Out magazine! Our very own Zilly Lilly!
By the way, the weather was so sunny and warm we didn’t even need jackets!
On Thursday morning we met up with some of our fellow Toronto Nerdlesquers for brunch in Brooklyn! Zilly Lilly, Betty Quirk, Loretta Jean, Sevvy Skellington, Helen of Tronna and me!
I had these delicious vegan, red velvet pancakes!
Then we stopped by the store Evolution to look at skulls, taxidermy and other wonderfully weird items.
I even picked up some Mermaid supplies…
Friday was the day of the show, so we didn’t do a whole lot, but we did eat a whole lot of vegan doughnuts!
And Leelando showed up!
All decked out in his Rogue outfit…
Backstage at the show with Betty Quirk, about to make our NY debut!
Love that Rogue hair!
Pikachu Sevvy and Gambit Betty!
Leelando and Betty Quirk killed it with their Rogue and Gambit act!
I had a blast doing my Batwoman act!

I am so proud to have performed at the Nerdlesque Festival! I never could have imagined that one day I would be doing burlesque for a screaming audience in New York City.  It’s definitely an experience I will never forget!
