It’s been a very busy month! I went to the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas for the first time and was so inspired! The weekend was filled with glittery people and fun activities. Not to mention four nights of amazing shows. The weekend started off with a bang with the Movers, Shakers, and Innovators show Thursday night and kept going strong through to the last performance of the Sunday night Icons and All Stars show which I was honored to stage kitten. Friday night’s show was the Legends show and I was moved to tears. I couldn’t believe how some of these burlesque legends could still bump and grind! Particularly touching was Penny Starr performing with her grand daughter Penny Starr Jr. Saturday night was the much anticipated Titans of Tease Tournament. Congratulations to all of the winners of the evening and to Imogen Kelly, our Reigning Queen of Burlesque! However, I have a special place in my heart for Mr. Russell Bruner who won the title of Mr. Exotic World! Russell is from Portland, OR and although I live in New York now, I am a Portlander at heart. Here is a picture of him right after his big win with The Pink Lady (the queen of his heart), Lana Louche, and myself.
After the amazing weekend I was in a glitter coma, but was excited to return to Portland for the first time since I moved away. I performed at Savoir Faire, Burlynomicon, Geeklesque, Sinferno, and Miss Kennedy’s Cabaret. Before my performance at Miss Kennedy’s Cabaret, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by RockNRoll Ruby and the Black Widower for The blackRuby show! In addition, I met up with one of my favorite videographers and will soon be posting a new video. Stay tuned for more promo pin ups because how could I visit Portland and not shoot with Mike Long of Portland Pin-Ups? Here is one of the images we shot while I was in town!
Since coming back to New York a week ago, I have been busy! I have had four shows and celebrated my birthday! I mean, what better way to celebrate my birth than by getting naked?!
June was a fun filled month, but the next month is exciting too so keep checking back for updates on shows.
