Photos by Barefaced Creative
It’s February and it feels like the winter will never end. Mountains of snow and ice are piled up in every corner, framing every sidewalk and path. Each step is delicate and calculated. Every movement is slow and steady. And I am dreaming of sandcastles…
Back in the summer of 2018 I shot some incredible photos with the magnificent team that is Khristianina and Katherine Bermudo. Sisters with an eye for design who work both independently and together to create wonderful imagery. Khristianina is the talented photographer behind Barefaced Creative and specializes in capturing moments, emotion and detail. Katherine is a phenomenal graphic artist and creative visionary who I have worked with many times and who designed this blog as well as my personal website www.missdollymonroe.com. The three of us together on a beach was the perfect combination to create something truly special!
I hope you enjoy this week’s photoset and I look forward to sharing the rest with you as the snow melts around us! Enjoy!
As a refreshing change of pace for this week’s photoset I have a dashing young fellow to feature; Boylesque sensation Dr. Orifice!
This bendy, bodacious boy has been bringing his ridiculous sense of humour to stages across Toronto. Dr. Orifice recently debuted a Ned Flanders act at PeepshowTO‘s Simpsons parody show and will soon be bringing another new act to PeepshowTO’s next production. Comic Strip-Off: A Marvel vs DC Burlesque Parody takes place on October 6th at the Great Hall in Toronto.
I first met Brittany in the summer of 2012. I had just gotten out of a long term relationship in which I had become increasingly isolated from my friends. Post-breakup I was feeling very lonely and while I had begun to rebuild past friendships I could also feel an empty void that needed to be filled with something new. I remember vividly meeting Brittany for the first time. She was the perfect picture of cool; bleach blonde hair in dreadlocks, lip ring, covered in tattoos and sporting a baby blue repro-vintage style dress printed with cartoon pinup girls. It was a dress I knew well, as I had been coveting and searching for this exact garment for months to no avail. There was Brittany wearing the dress of my dreams, the friend I had been looking for. As we got to know each other we discovered we had more in common than just fashion. Brittany is sharp as a whip, with a love of history and a Masters Degree under her belt. She is a kind and compassionate friend with an unending love of animals, reading and baking. Brittany is the kind of person who will always ask the questions that others dare not broach because she genuinely wants to know about you on a deeper level. I feel so lucky to call Brittany my friend and happy to be able to share these photos of her with you. As you can see Brittany is a beautiful lady, but I know that she is even more beautiful on the inside!
