Cecile Mimieux

The one, the only; Cecile Mimieux! Isn’t she a babe?! Cecile Mimieux was the wonderful contestant in Miss Burlesque Australia that I made the costume for mentioned in this blog post. The photos that we took on the night came out in a blur so these are by A&C Photography.

Doesn't she make it look adorable? I am so happy I got to make a costume for such an amazing person.

Two Ladies

Lately, I have been helping out at the local burlesque events selling merch and other trinkets. It's a whole lot of fun and I get to meet some amazing people. Best part of it is I get to wear anything I please so I've been having a blast in one of the "Two Ladies" costumes from the musical Cabaret that my uni put on in the beginning of the year.
Now tell me, is this not the most fun costume ever?

Burlesque Costume

I wasn’t going to post this until tomorrow but I am too excited I can’t hold back! Over the last few weeks I have been making a costume for a local burlesque dancer to wear in the West Australia heat of the Miss Burlesque Australia contest that will be held in Fremantle tomorrow.

I made her a 1960s styled night gown with matching bed coat in pail pink, pink frilly nickers, satin g-string (encrusted with sequins) and fluffy pink powder puff pasties with little pink bows. As well as covering a strapless bra to match.

These photos were taken a few days ago so the g-string was only half sequinned, the ribbons were still raw and I hadn’t even covered the bra at that stage but I am hoping to get more photos of it all complete and being worn by the amazing dancer herself very soon.

Birthday Photos

Some of the photos I took at my birthday. I think there was a trend for blonde curly hair.
