SHOTS FROM SHOWS

A lot of you have asked for it, and since I'm mostly needels and pins (and leisure wear) for the moment I'll give you some show picures, on and off stage!

I got these via Ilona who saw a small show :) I had the worst flue ever during it, high fever and felt like shit but you can't really tell now afterwards.

Tonight it's time for the third Club Wanted, and once again we have a brand new totally hilarious number (thus the needles and pins mentioned there above, we've all been sewing and fixing all week...). Unlike normally we will perform at 22:00 hrs already so make sure to be on time!

You can see more pictures at our myspace, at the Helsinki Burlesque Flickr page, or if you join us on facebook. We have shows weekly so there will be lots of new pictures soon! There are few pictures from Club Wanted though, since the stage is too small and the place too dark and crowded in order to get any good shots...

Oh, it looks so good. I wish there was something like that in Trondheim, which could kick up ouer outdoor environments, and give us burlesque lovers something to look forward to. No plans on a Trondheim (NORWAY) show?

Wanja B : Oh, I'd love to do Trondheim! Who knows, maybe we'll even make it there one day? Might not be in the very close future, but still...

When you start a foreign trip, don't forger to come to Belgium :o).
We have nothing like this in Belgium, so it would be a big succes!

YEA!! You ladies are amazing, and the photos are gorgeous. Great photography! It must be easy when you have such lovely subjects to capture.

annabananna said...

really not much i can say that hasn't been said yet. but anyway: amazing pictures, looks like a ton of fun!

Janina Modaal : that'd be great! But of course, if there is no scene, it might eb hard to find a venue to perform in... but if there's an interest I bet we'd find the place too :)

Mysterycreature : I'm afraid I'm not too familiar with the UK burlesque secene, butI think there's quite a lot of action over there? Facebook is full of UK performers and groups so have a look there :) You can search some via my friends lst, a lot of folks in the UK have addded ny burlesque profile Cherry Dee. (oh and by the way, I have terrible computer-spelling, my fingers are much faster than the rest of me and it shows in the text :)

Mamma : it was on Sat already but thanks, it went alright.

Pretty Pirate : THanks, but you know, we get hundreds of pics and only a few are useable in the end. So it's not THAT easy :)

Annabananna : It is! I think having fun ourselves is a very important part.

逆援助 said...

セレブ達は一般の人達とは接する機会もなく、その出会う唯一の場所が「逆援助倶楽部」です。 男性はお金、女性はSEXを要求する場合が多いようです。これは女性に圧倒的な財力があるから成り立つことの出来る関係ではないでしょうか?
