Here’s the finished logo/mascot for Nerd Girl Burlesque, Canada’s premier nerdlesque troupe!  Her name is Angie Bee, and right now she’s reading in up in preparation for our first show, Book Club Burlesque.  But keep an eye out for more instances of Angie engaged in other nerdy pastimes.
Our main website isn’t quite live yet (but it will be soon), but in the meantime you can keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter.  And don’t forget to come to our show on August 17th!

In case you were wondering whatever became of this rough drawing, there she is all markered up!  I’m going to have a lot of fun drawing more and more versions of her.



So much love for the NGB mascot lady, Angie!

Happy Beltane / May Day! 

I hope your day is blessed, bright, and hopefully full of giant poles! Ah pagan fertility rites, you never let me down, re: large phalluses! ;)

I’ll be celebrating with Rosa Mystica tonight, and will certainly report back hopefully with some photos and an update soon.

… 

In other news…MY THESIS SHOW OPENS IN 3 DAYS! It’s also kind of about sex - but really mostly gender, and burlesque! I am really excited, and hella nervous. I start installing this afternoon. If you’re in Toronto, you should come check it out. I will be performing around 8pm at the opening reception.

Pretty things, rhinestones & sequins

Hi lovelies,

I don’t know if this would be of interest/relevant to any of you, but myself and the moxie Ms. mylittlenestofvipers have been keeping a costume inspirations Tumblr together (for burlesque, darlings), it’s full of pretty things and some burly-q history.

Hop on over to Locked Lips and Swingin Hips to check it out.

inspired thinking - my goals for the year

So this maybe a bit tardy, but better late than never. I’ve been riding a wave of contagious good-vibes, and optimism since the beginning of the new calendar year, though it’s taken me a few weeks to feel out what I want to achieve - so really I needed until almost lunar new year in order to figure this stuff out.

I am making a list of all the things I want to accomplish in 2012. An amazing, brilliant and vibrant to-do list:

- Being healthy in mind & body: this is the year I kick Lupus’ ass into remission and restore my vitality, regain energy, and will be reborn/rejuvenated as even more bad-ass than I was before all of this health related drama started.

-Creating my fantastically exciting first art exhibition ever, which is also my MA project (thesis-y thing) and finishing grad school :D

-Constructing and working on my new independent domain blog - more details soon, I am very excited about this

-Getting back to daily yoga practice, and running daily as well

-Decluttering my house, clothes & possessions - I truly believe this will make me happier, saner and help in so many ways

-Making every single day magical, and creating some fantastic new realities/manifestations with Rosa Mystica

-Working with my new burlesque troupe (also exciting news, more details TBA) to create some wonderfully successful, original, quality shows

-Drink more water and tea, less alcohol; keep up my awesome vegan, g/f, low-glycemic diet

-Spend less time online, read more books (I have a big pile to get through at the moment)

-Making more time for the incredible friends in my life, and cutting out the dead-weight

-Traveling more: on my destination wishlist - UK, Ireland & France, Greece, Austria (to visit some old friends), Iceland, NYC, Japan

What are your goals for this year? What do you hope to accomplish?

You know me darlings, I rarely do self-promo on here but this show is going to be hot-hot-hot and I couldn’t be more excited about. I’ll be debuting a new burlesque act, and my amazing next door neighbour (and the Bo to my Kenzi), the enchanting Kristin Sweetland will be hosting and performing.
A Sweet Soirée - Valentine’s Cabaret, Thursday, February 9th @ The Cameron House!

Starring: Captain Dirt and The Skirt, David Newland, Evalyn Parry, Jess McAvoy, Loretta Jean, Lyndell Montgomery, and Scarlett Jane ( Andrea Ramolo & Cindy Doire.) Hosted by Kristin Sweetland. It’s gonna be sweet, and seriously smokin’. Hope you can make it!
Please, come check it out! xo
