Today I - Cherry- was a guest at Radio X3M, the nation wide radio channel for Swedish speaking youngsters and youth minded, to speak a bit about burlesque and how we like to do it. The show can't be heard on line anymore, but you can however see a little mini clip of me burlesque coaching the radio hosts afterwards; a minute and fifty-two second long funny little work shop if you so like :D

Watch it here, and, unlike most national broadcast clips this one can actually be watched abroad!

First I thought I´d only post a couple of shots, but you know, it´s not from every gig you get such dramatic, atmospheric pictures, and so many at that! And it being our first gig with the new Bitty-crew (as I´m SURE you all know by heart now - we do keep on reminding you, heh), I thought what the heck, let´s give Kerttu´s pics all the honour they deserve. ♥

So here goes. It´s almost like seeing the whole show if you put on the music on (the link was a couple posts earlier) while watching! Ladies, gentlemen and everyone in between or over the rainbow, may I present - The Itty-Bitty Tease Cabaret in "Ghost Town"!

... sweet dreams. ♥

Cherry and Tinker ransacking the stage...

This summer´s Kult gatherings are over, but here´s for hoping the same fun might continue next year! Who knows...

After the well-deserved summer holidays it´s easy to notice autumn is coming nigh... suddenly there´s so much to do! Of course, we haven´t been resting only, seeing as we practiced the new group routine and made the clothes for it during July and August - and I can tell you it´s quite a lot to do, sometimes, painting five pairs of skeleton gloves for instance. That´s ten gloves for you, each of them painted twice... so yeah. Not only resting. ;)

However, come autumn, it´s time for photo shoots as well. You already saw the first group promo pics of us by Emma Jo, posing as wild and fierce jungle kitties, but I´ve been busy elsewhere as well. Here are some results from a photo shoot with Adam Monaghan that I was doing last week, mainly foot modeling but some portraits as well, here you go, I like the results a lot myself:

Adam is a skilled photographer who´s comfortable and easy to work with and we always end up having a lot of fun. He occasionally shoots at burlesque clubs as well, mostly b&w. I do think that my nice brand new red heels deserved the colour attention in these pics though. ;)

The act is Ghos Town and you will be seeing more of it in the future for sure.

We're working on a little something.
And it's not that small actually. It will be huge, big and bad and you can see it next week's Thursday over at Kokonut Kult's Demon Nigh at the Kokomo Tikibar & Room!

That'd be the 25th to be exact and you can get your tickets HERE!
