Babes in Space - Video and Reviews!

Babes in Space: The Wrath of Thong was a sold-out spectacular spanning two nights at Revival Nightclub. Toronto has never seen this level of sci-fi naked burlesque mayhem, and never will again UNTIL 2012 when we return!
Thank you to my performers, sponsors, and audience for making this Star Trek vs Star Wars geek-out fantastic! Take a look at a video compilation, featuring performance clips, backstage peeks, and more!

Check out the pre-show piece in Xtra, and the wonderful show reviews at Torontoist, and Mooney on Theatre!

Pictures and performance videos coming soon! As well as appearances on Cosmo TV and Naked News!

Vote for Red Herring at The Zed World's Sexiest Zombie Contest!

I'm back! And in true spirit of returning things, I'm competing in a zombie contest!

Now, it's not just any contest, it's The Zed Words' Sexiest Zombie Contest.

The photo below is my entry in the contest...

This shoot was a collaboration between myself and two incredibly talented people: Mark Boyer of 3BArtistry as the makeup artist and zombie pro, and Toni Wallachy of Orangeroads Photography and Pink Panther Studios, photography Mistress of awesomeness.

For the zombie concept, we wanted to stray away from the typical horror-film zombie, and didn't want to go to hard in the direction of pin-up zombies either. Historically, zombies come from voodoo traditions in the deep south, so we decided instead to go for more of a voodoo priestess zombie, a bayou ghoul, etc.

Winning this contest would be an amazing victory for Toni and Mark, as this photo would appear on the front page of The Zed Word for a full year! I, of course, would be taking part in that victory as well!

What are you waiting for? Go vote for me! I'm #8, and hoping to pull in some more votes before the contest closes on September 22nd. I promise I'll chew on your bodyparts first when the apocalypse comes!

More photos from this set will be made available upon my triumph!

New Classes at The Coco Framboise School of Burlesque

My fanny-tastic tassel-twirling jet-setting teacher Coco Framboise is teaching another set of classes in the Coco Framboise School of Burlesque downtown Toronto!

I can't attend the full run of them this round, due to a double-booking on Wednesday nights with my bootcamp. I shake my fists at the heavens. You, however, should go.

Go here to pre-register at discounted rates! Information is also available on her website.

If you are of the female persuasion and either have no interest in performing, or all intentions of shimmying for the public, she teaches for both. She offers two hour-long classes a night (that sometimes go long, but never cut short). Coco is responsible for adding polish and rubbing in the raunch on many of Toronto's performers, including the sexy Obskyura, Keela Watts, and Trixi Jones to name a few.*

Minnie Tonka and Dew Lily are coming out this time too, as first-ever guest teachers!

Minnie is straight from New York, where she's best known for being one half of The Schlep Sisters and competing at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas for Best Group in 2009 and 2011, she was also voted #32 in the Top 100 International Burlesque Industry Figures of 2010.

Dew Lily is from Toronto's own lurid backyard, and is often seen naked in the company of Les Coquettes and Boylesque TO.

Both guest teachers are sure to be incredible resources of sleaze and tease.

Of the classes, I reccomend the Vegas Fan lesson. This class turned me on to feather fans in a bad bad way. I went out and got my own pair shortly after. I suggest no lipgloss. You'll be spitting feathers.

I'll be attempting to attend a few classes by switching my bootcamp from 6pm to 6am for those days. That, ladies and sexpots, is how dedicated I am to edification!

Hope to see you there!


* Note: a large part of the reason my boobs are on stage is Coco's fault. Blame her with diamonds. She likes that.
