Thrift Shop Addiction...

A friend of mine had me listen to this song and I hated it's guts... Until I realized this is pretty much the anthem for everyone I know. Thrift shops actually really do rule.

A little tease....

Tease, Burlesque et divertissement!
Vendredi après-midi, nous allons lancer notre "sneak peek" de notre prochain grand projet! Restez à l'écoute .... xox

Mlle Oui Oui Encore!

As usual, it's always a pleasure to work with Oui Oui - this time around we did some shots of her to be used as models for Maly Siri to paint for the next Blue Light Burlesque ad campaign! The poster was put together by the excellent graphist Genevieve April - Check it out!

Here's a shot of a set we did afterwards - goofing around works out pretty well!

Tiki Queens and Dracula's vixens!

We had a great set put together by myself and Kent from Kustom Designs, inspired by the great 1950's Pinups from Hawaii - complete with mermaid tail and Bettie Page bathing suits! I had the pleasure of photographing Sailor Jassie as our mermaid and the lovely Lou on the Rocks as our Tiki Queen!
Take a look:

Sadly, the set has been taken down and replaced by the Inferno Room (see below) but I'm sure due to popularity it will be back again next year!
We also have a very sexy and sensual set still up; we've based it on Lucy's loss of innocence in the garden from the film Dracula. Here's a still from the movie:

This set is great both in colour and black and white. Once again I got to photograph Lou on the Rocks in a gorgeous vintage powder blue bullet bra and garters! Meow!
I also had a great time doing my light test with Maman Gâteaux - check it out!

This set will be up until mid September - Stay tuned! We're bringing back an old favourite, Spiced up and full of glitter!

Zoofest & More!

As some of you might have noticed - I've been a pretty busy lady for the past few months! Not even any free time to blog! For those of you looking to book appointments I STRONGLY suggest you come in person to my studio: 16935 St-Denis, MTL (Berri-UQAM Metro) so that we can chat, look over the sets and see what you want to do. It's ALWAYS the fastest and easiest way to reach me as I pretty much live here in the closet with the vacuum and crackers.

These past few months have been booked with many projects, one of which was Speakeasy Burlesque's presentation of "The Sins of Reverend Morgan"(produced by myself, Lavender May and Isabel HL) for Zoofest and Just for Laughs! Honestly, it was a pretty amazing experience, seven crazy nights of burlesque, glitter and love. The whole festival was pretty amazing, skipping from show to show, haggling comedians and drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and eating MTL Pool Room hot dogs in the park with my best girlfriends (and Frankie Lam) after working 16 hour days. Here's the teaser Frank Lam put together - all of it filmed in Lavender May's living room on green screen:

Besides Zoofest; I've been going pretty hard with the daily shoots, an average of 3 to 6 shoots a day! All you ladies (and gents too) have been pretty fabulous and seriously chill. I appreciate all the love.

I've also started working on refurbishing and creating burlesque costumes and lingerie. This girl loves her some Swarovski. Take a look and follow me on Instagram!

Inferno Room!

A few weeks ago my good friends Kent from Kustom Designs, Marie-Eve, Jassie and Meagan helped me trace out and create my favourite scene from Beetlejuice for the studio; take a look at the clip:

So, we drew out the Inferno Room, cut it out and painted the crap out of that bad boy!

Take a look at the light tests with Sailor Jassie and Maman Gâteaux!

And then here are some images we did of Lavender May for Télé Québec in the same set but obviously with a 1920s vibe.
