Pics from the Burlesque Costume's Tour

I probably should have posted these ages ago, but here are some pictures of the costume in action. I have to shout out the lovely Coco Framboise for doing my work justice. It seems like so very long ago that I was in the midst of making this baby.

 Photographer: Photolena
Photogtapher: Angela McConnell

Photographer: Chris Hutcheson

 Photographer: Coco Framboise

Photographer: Percy Katt

Here's a little "behind-the-scenes" photo of Coco and I. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get the pics edited yet, so we'll see if I can play around on photoshop and come up with something half-decent. You really can't get the full picture of the transformative properties of this costume with the pictures I've  posted, so we'll see if I can get around to editing them sometime this lifetime.

Just in case I haven't mentioned, I used a ridiculous amount of rare earth magnets to make this costume easily removable and transformative.  The base of the costume is a cupless bra that attaches to a waist belt that attaches to a pair of high-waisted leather panties. Yep, this costume is metallic pigsuede and the  skirt is a really cool opalescent silk that shines like nobody's business when it's on stage.

Word of caution...when you use rare earth your fingers. They're so strong that they only come 5 in a package. They're packaged in clear 'film roll case-esque' containers with a cautionary note that states "may cause blood blisters". I almost got my fingers caught between two of those suckers that were placed too close to each other on the table. I kid you not.

Oh yeah, and the skirt comes apart in two pieces. And the bra cups come off. And did I mention that the high waisted, booty-baring panties are metallic leather? Because, why not? Life is short. Wear nice panties.

New Stockist: Bridge & Bardot

Go check out the latest addition to the Ossington Strip: Bridge & Bardot is located at 1138 Dundas Street West (Right beside the Lakeview at Dundas and Ossington) and is owned by three lovely girls by the names of Gurjeet Bassi, Gagan Bassi, and Rose Broadbent. They've been doing vintage pop-up shops for several years, and opened the retail location on July 13th. Hand-picked vintage threads and accessories by local designers can all be found amongst the well thought out decor.  And of course, Andi G neck cuffs. You can find the Blog TO post here. I'm absolutely delighted that they took such a   clear picture of my work for the post. Slowly but surely, right?

Behind the Scenes

Here's an important truth that I've discovered this year: There are certain people that build you up, draw ideas out of you and realize your potential. They're your motivator, your fan and your critic all wrapped up into one neat little package.This is who I want on my team. They're the ones that help turn half-formed musings into full-blown ideas without even realizing it. I know I can be good on my own, but with the right team there lies the potential to become a freakin' super-force. 

With that being said, here are some behind-the-scenes pictures of the photoshoot I just did with Charles Leonio, Mya Pereira and Rebecca Celeste Kwan. 

3 hours of hand-stitching later.......
