    Bawdy Shop Burlesque

    Bawdy Shop Burlesque is a brand-new Baltimore troupe dedicated to producing complete, narrative, innovative burlesque shows.  Plus they are a collection of some of the most brilliant, talented, and wonderful ladies I know, and I miss them like crazy.  Please take a minute to check ‘em out, and consider attending their first full-length show!  Pop pasties!

    A film project near and dear to my heart, Call Girl of Cthulhu, will premier at the Maryland Film Festival on Thursday, May 8th, 2014!  This is the third Midnight Crew Studios film for which I have designed costumes.  Plus, in this one I am turned into a gross monster on camera!  There is an additional screening on Friday, May 9.

    Much love to the CGoC family!  Have a wonderful premier!

    Here is a shot of a collaboration between me and Susie Brandt.  We made this costume for Elsie the Cow, who lives in upstate New York.  Susie Made the dress and I made the apron.

    Ain’t she a beauty?
