BURLESQUE, BURLESQUE, ALL WEEKEND LONG

There will be a lot of pinupping, posing and burlesqueing about this weekend, as a matter of fact, nothing but it!


Pupuppiduu, the dress is from Vivien of Holloway.


Tonight we'll participate in the Books & Burlesque Happening, as part of the Night of Arts. You can draw us and a bunch of other burlesque boys and girls during the Dr. Sketchy's sessions in the window of Suomalainen Kirjakauppa from 18.00 to 22.00. Afterwards there will be shows in the bookstore!

Tomorrow it's time for Burlesque Goes Kapakka at Vanha, from 21.00 onwards. There is no entry fee since the happening is part of Art Goes Kapakka! We'll do a pinup vintage and retro lingerie fashionshow at 21:30, after which we do two half hour burlesque sets at 21:50 and 23:30. Gunmolls & Gansters play in between and Sweet Jeena and Her Sweethearts treat you with some swingin' tunes after our last show (and you might catch a glimpse of us doing some slight rockabilly-a gogo on stage too :)

So, if you're around Helsinki you'll know what not to miss!

I think you would be an amazing subject to draw from. If I didn't live all the way in Ireland I'd definitely be there! I love your tattoos, style, writing, pictures and everything I've seen on this blog!

Wow beautiful! I'm always curious about whether you take all your own photos and how you always manage to get the lighting so spot on? They look great!
