The Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque

The Nerd Girl Burlesque troupe has been bringing their brand of Nerdy Burlesque to Toronto stages since 2012.  The original members Delicia PasticheHelen of Tronna and Loretta Jean have recently brought on Henrietta VIII to complete the bevy of beautiful nerds running their troupe.  Along with the help of the ever hilarious host Reddy TaRumble, these ladies continue to produce monthly Nerdlesque shows in our fine city.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at the softer side of the Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque through my intimate photo series with the gals.  You can see them all at their upcoming show Level Up- An Evening of Video Game Burlesque on August 25th at See-Scape.

Please enjoy my first set of photos of The Ladies of Nerd Girl Burlesque!

Vampira

Happy Halloween!

This year I decided to pay tribute to legendary Horror Babe Vampira!  Tyrone Islington and I took a little trip to the cemetery to take some spooky photos of the costume I made.  I had some help with the incredible claws from my friend Vall.

Star Wars Babes

Henrietta VIII is the most powerful crime lord in the galaxy and Betty Quirk is exactly her kind of scum. Being dangerous space criminals has never looked so good! These ladies are ready to showcase the perfect balance of flawless pinup style and a total lack of morals.

Betty Quirk may have no love for the empire – but she loves to pose in her finest Mandalorian armour exactly “as you wish”. Ho ho ho… Be careful to stay on Henrietta’s good side because this Hutt does not take kindly to disappointments. When not posing for the camera she enjoys decorating her home with people who have betrayed her, frozen in carbonite. Don’t worry though – both of these sci-fi femme fatales agree that you’re no good to them dead!

Bridal Burlesque Beauty: Chow Mein

Earlier this year I had the absolute pleasure of designing and creating a wedding dress for the sweetest gal I know, Chow Mein of The Harlettes.  A vintage beauty with a twist, Chow’s gown was actually a romper and skirt combo allowing her all the elegance of a gown with the functionality of shorts!  In a beautiful, creamy off-white the ensemble was decorated with hundreds of appliquéd flowers, beads and crystals and the look was topped off with a simple flower crown.  I was so thrilled to have been able to contribute to the happy couple’s special day!  Please enjoy some photos from the occasion of the radiant Chow and Mr. Mein!
