Beyond the Valley of the Dolls with Sevvy Skellington

The sultry Sevvy Skellington is in a daze from all those dolls on this week’s Beyond the Valley of the Dolls photoset!

This Nerdlesque producer and performer is part of the Peepshow TO team who are hard at work on their next production I Have Misplaced My Pants: A Classic Simpsons Burlesque Tribute.  With Simpsons superfan Sevvy’s eye on this production it is certain to be jam packed with hilarious references and saucy impressions of your favourite Simpsons characters!

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

I’m back from a refreshing break with a new energy and some tricks up my sleeve!

I am so excited to share the photos from my latest photoshoot with you!  As always, I drew a lot of my inspiration from Russ Meyer and so, since I’ve already done The Valley of the Dolls, this new set is called Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

These gorgeous burlesque beauties were the perfect models for this 60s nostalgic theme and it was an absolutely pleasure capturing Bianca Boom Boom, Sevvy Skellington, Betty Quirk, Dottie Champagne and Ivory in this pink dream set.

Please enjoy the first instalment of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls…

Reflecting on a Fabulous Year!

It’s hard to believe 2014 is finally coming to a close.  This year has been so full of joy and success, good times and great friends.  I have a new job which I love so much and is the start of a wonderful career.  I have the most amazing group of friends a girl could ever ask for, not to mention the cutest kitten on the planet.  And I’ve been able to express my creativity through so many amazing fashion photo shoots and design projects.  I performed in an international burlesque festival, got a giant mermaid tattoo, met two of my idols (Yaya Han and Tess Munster) and I even started this blog.   I can’t believe what a lucky girl I am and I feel so incredibly thankful to have had all these experiences.

So here we go.  This is my year in photos; memories from most of the big events, photo shoots, friends, lots and lots of friends and the most fabulous fashions.  Thank you for following my blog and I wish the happiest New Year to you all!

The Night is Dark and Full of Tassels

Last Saturday was the third instalment of a Game of Thrones Burlesque!  The show was a wonderful mix of glitz, glamour and super nerdy humour.  From Dragons to John Snow to the Iron Throne itself, the evening was filled with some of the most beloved and hated GOT characters doing their sexiest stripteases.  Please enjoy my photos from The Night is Dark and Full of Tassels…

Garters of the Galaxy

Our final Peepshow TO show by all means should have been a sad affair.  It was the final time our amazing group of performers and friends would come together to put on the biggest and best nerdlesque show in town.  The last time we would all gather backstage, getting ready and gabbing, swapping eyelash glue and pastie tape.  The final collective feeling of putting on a show that was truly entertaining, inspiring and unique.  But instead of feeling loss and despair I could not imagine a more electric evening.  There was a buzz in the air from the minute the Great Hall began filling up.  Every seat was taken and still people stood to watch what can only be described as one of the greatest shows that we have ever created.  From start to finish the energy was palpable.  Not one lull or low moment was felt and the volume of cheers and laughs echoed endlessly through the night. Every performer brought their best and the roaring crowd pushed each of us to be that much better.

I feel so lucky to have such talented, inspiring and loving friends and to have had so many opportunities to work with these amazing people.  Even though this was the last Peepshow event (for now anyways) I couldn’t be sad for even one second because my mind is filled with all the wonderful moments I have shared with this group.

Thank you Leelando, Sevvy and Betty for giving us a stage to perform on, for making it possible for us to come together as a team and for working so tirelessly to ensure each event has been more outstanding than the last.  Thank you to all the performers who have constantly pushed each other to be more creative simply by being endlessly creative themselves.  Thank you to Rena, Mong Tho, Amie and everyone who has worked backstage throughout the past few years.  Without you we would be utterly lost.  And finally, thanks to everyone who has come out to support our shows.  Hearing the excitement in your cheers is the fuel that drives us.

The final curtain has closed.  The show has concluded.  But I promise this is not the last you will hear or see of the members of the PeepshowTO family.
