Orangeroads Photography and Pink Panther Studios

I'm in love.

Don't tell the boy.

Toni Walachy is one of the most amazing photographers I have ever worked with. She is the Mistress of Pink Panther Studios downtown Toronto on Queen St. East, which runs workshops on Sundays and Wednesdays, providing photographers with a full studio, and models with a full dressing room and wardrobe section!

Here's a video of a shoot we did with 3B Artistry and Spanish Fly Films. It was a full bodypaint, with two looks for photographers to shoot. This was a super long day, but we got some amazing shots!

Take a look at a few shots from some of our escapades!

You can add Pink Panther Studios on facebook too! Photographers and models can benefit from her huge prop room, Sunday workshop classes, and gorgeous space, which is also available to rent if you need a spot to shoot!

Here's a view of a corner in the front room, all done up for the holidays! Also available are the brand new corset bar, a kitchen and storage room with a load of props and a coffeemaker for those early-morning shoots,  and a sexy private dressing room for models! The studio itself can accomodate at least two photosets at any given time, and probably a lot more! (What do I know, I just pose!)

Check her out, and don't tell her I have a crush!

Burlesque How To: How Do You Apply Pasties?

When dealing with newbies, right after "How do you spin them?" comes "How do you keep them on?"

Both of these are incredibly important questions, as the first thing aspiring tassel-twirlers want to do is just that: twirl! For details on how to get the spin down, take a look at my previous post, featuring Elvira!

For details on how to make them stick, read on!

There are many school of adhesive when it comes to putting on your boob-hats. Eyelash glue, double sided tape, spirit gum, and more! I personally use Spirit Gum to keep my pasties on, and have yet to lose one in the heat of performance, but others swear by their own methods.

For a great article by Black Mariah, check out Pincurl Magazine's The Tape Dilemma

"I think the only real point that will never have one answer between burlesque dancers is “how do you keep your pasties on?” The answers will range from Flash tape, eyelash glue, spirit gum, toupee tape, and the list grows every year I spend in the world of burlesque." - Black Mariah

Take a hop over, and get stickin'!

Burlesque dancers, do you have a preferred method? Have you ever lost a pastie? Let me know in the comments!

Red Herring - TIFF 2011 Interview

I'm always a fan of the Toronto International Film Festival and the celebrity chaos it brings to the city. People tend to flock. Unfortunately the TTC feels the burden, and going anywhere downtown is a mess. Regardless, the chance encounters with some sexy stars tend to make it worthwhile.

Every year I end up working a TIFF event somehow, and luckily this was my second year at the Raindance gala! Take a look below at the interview I did while there!

One of my friends saw Ryan Gosling last year, hanging out at Cherry Cola's (where I used to gogo dance!) and another ran into Robert Pattinson.

I'm happy for the networking oppourtunities and the amusing artists I tend to meet. Can't wait until TIFF 2012!

Dita Von Teese - Wet

Burlesque: it's in you. Or some cheesy tag line like that.

But seriously? This has managed to be kind of classy. Not to mention the previous interactive Perrier ad campaign (link probably NSFW) which was all kinds of hot and classy.

"A glamorous new 2011 limited edition of Perrier features the iconic queen of burlesque, Dita Von Teese. Chic, sensual and sassy, this limited edition Perrier has a festive showgirl style and adds sparkle to every party.

These new Perrier by Dita Von Teese designs will be available from November 2011 in supermarkets, restaurants and bars."

I kind of wish I drank Perrier, just for this awesome design. The last design was pretty cool too.

Damn it, I need to be on a bottle! Maybe a bottle of rum...
