Only 2 days left to help us create tarot-inspired burlesque magic at the historic Michigan Theatre. We are so close to our goal (89% funded). If we don’t make our goal, the show can’t go on. Every dollar helps at this point. There are still lots of amazing rewards to be had.

There’s just five days left to support Pick a Card: A Burlesque Exploration of Tarot Kickstarter! 

This truly the most ambitious, exciting and original project Nerd Girl Burlesque has ever been asked to participate in. The show is set to take place at the gorgeous & historic Michigan Theatre (in Ann Arbor, MI) on September 27 but the show can only happen if we make our goal by Saturday, August 16! 

The line-up is mind-boggling amazing, including headliner Roxi D’Lite (2014 World Champion of Exotic Dance, The Reigning Queen of Burlesque Miss Exotic World 2010). Produced by Ann Arbor’s Gala Delicious & Cruel Valentine (Chicago). Also featuring: more talent from Chicago - Red Rum, Dahlia Fatale, Vaudezilla’s Lilly Rascal,  as well as Michigan phenomenons Dolly Dagger, Lushes LaMoan, The Vivacious Miss Audacious, Luna Legare, Annie Thing, AErin Garber Pearson and Violet Defiant, Mylitta & more! 

There are amazing rewards available - even if you are unable to make the show itself. Help us created tarot inspired theatrical magic!

Hey friends, my burlesque troupe, Nerd Girl Burlesque is involved in this amazing project. We only have five days left to raise approximately $2800. I know we can do this! 

This project is extremely dear to heart, it’s a fusion of two of my favourite things: burlesque & tarot. I think it’s going to challenge a lot of perceptions of what burlesque can be and blur the lines between our art form, performance art, and dream-like theatrical spectacle. 

If all of my own followers donated $2 each, we’d surpass our goal today. Every little bit helps at this point, please if you’ve got even a few dollars to spare, please consider making a contribution.

automaticcolors:

AHHHHHHHHHHHH

Okay so, let’s just do this haha

Row One:

  1. Alchemical Tarot (is that out of print again?)
  2. Wild Unknown Tarot
  3. I think it’s AG Müller’s Tarot de Marseille Convos? I don’t know if they’ve published another TdM aside from that. I think it’s out of print here in America, but as with most AGM decks you can probably still order it from the UK. (I’m not super great at telling the various Marseille decks apart)

Row Two:

  1. Steampunk Tarot
  2. Obviously this one is a Waite Colman Smith type Strength but tbh I can’t tell the difference between the various WCS decks.
  3. Lo Scarabeo’s The Classic Tarot (I almost bought that at HPB a couple weeks ago) but I may be wrong.

Row Three

  1. This is from the sadly out of print Linweave Tarot
  2. The Vampire Tarot by Robert Place
  3. Luis Royo’s Labyrinth Tarot
I’d like to add Strength by E. Woodbury Rand. You can get prints or a t-shirt version of the design as part of the Pick A Card: A Burlesque Exploration of Tarot kickstarter - happening now!

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.
