Newest news… I made it into the Bear Babes Calendar!!!
I am so honoured and happy to be given this opportunity. I made my first try at competing 3 years ago, and I feel like I have come to far since then.
I’ve earned this, and it will be a huge bump for my career.
Thank you to everyone who voted for me, cheered for me and supported me.
See you on the glossy pages! I’ll be on your wall next year 🙂

13-06-09 BBB Femmes Fatales


┼

I have been working with Blue Belle Burlesque since Jade Janvier created the troupe last year. As an Aussie import, her goal is to bring the grandeur of Australia’s burlesque scene (where there are dedicated burlesque clubs & weekly performances) to Canada – starting with Alberta. She plans to host the very first Edmonton Burlesque Festival this fall, which is going to be a blast!
I was the feature performer for the very first show, which also kicked off the competition leading to the festival. I judged Miss Burlesque Bunny Heat 1 & then went on to judge Heat 2 as well.

This Sunday, I judged the third heat of the competition & rubbed elbows with Edmonton’s vaudeville community. Male contenders, also known as performers of “boylesque”, have swept up the winners’ sashes lately and I suspect will continue to dominate.
I’m now looking forward to the explosion of festivities planned for the fall! See you in September!

13-05-24 Vixenesque Chick Flick


┼

Vixenesque Burlesque is the other troupe in town that I am affiliated with. Created by Maila Mustang (who had a stint in the Vancouver & BC burly-q scene), this group is all about gorelesque, horror & heavy metal.
One Hell of a Chick Flick was put on to showcase movie-themed burlesque acts, including shows themed on Queen of the Damned, Silence of the Lambs and Tank Girl!
I attended this event to support V as well as the Edmonton Burlesque Festival, which they were fundraising for. I also sold tickets to Laced Up, which is Sweet Carousel’s next event and ALSO a supporter of the Burlesque Fest. We are such a tight community <3
