Photos from The Vancouver Burlesque Festival Finale @ The Vogue Theater

with 2 comments

Wow… Just wow…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many wardrobe (mal?)functions in one night. I got hit with a well aimed headpiece, and my head is still spinning from the hypnotic twirling of countless nipple tassels…
Words can only do so much… hopefully some photos will help explain the sordidly mesmerizing madness that went down in The Vogue Theater last night. VIBF 2012, you have outdone yourselves. More photos up at The Snipe.

Some viewers may find the nipples in this post graphic

7th Annual Vancouver International Burlesque Festival 2012 …

with one comment

From time to time I’ll get an email about some interesting new show or event that is happening somewhere in Vancouver. I never really know what to expect, so I usually encounter a surprise or two along the way. This time the show was at The Rio, and the surprise was that it consisted of a series of choreographed wardrobe malfunctions and featured a wide variety of thematic nipple tassel and pastie designs… it was a great show.

Visit the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival website for a full schedule. And check The Snipe for more photos :)

Child Haven Charity Note Cards

with one comment

It’s been a couple of years since I was last in India, but my experience traveling to some of the Child Haven homes was something that still brings a smile to my face. Every year I try to put some of my photos together in a charity project to help raise money for them, and this year we decided to do a large run of notecards. The printing costs have been donated 100%, so every dollar you spend on these cards goes directly to Child Haven International, to help them support the hundreds of destitute children that they care for in India, Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. These cards aren’t holiday specific, and you can use them for a variety of occasions throughout the year, plus they support a great cause.

The notecards are by donation and come hand packaged in packs of 10 (each with a different photo), we are asking for a minimum $20 donation per pack (100% of your donation goes directly to Child Haven).

You can pick them up from me in person in Kitsilano, or at the next charity dinner near you. Child Haven is a small organization running on minimal overhead, and they don’t have the resources to do individual mail outs at this time. Sign up for the Child Haven newsletter to see when they will be serving up great butter chicken, spicy curry and fresh naan near you :)
