The more the merrier

applies to traveling with friends! I just arrived home from a trip with fellow Hulapirates Lola Vanilla, Bent van der Bleu, Bettie Blackheart, Frank Doggenstein & Fiona Timantti.
Lola & some girrrrrrl power at the Joensuu Art Museum.
Our troupee was shaking, spinning and stirring the city of Joensuu as part of the Rokumentti - rock film festival, first at the local art museum and later in a fabulous club called Kerubi.
Low meets high art and vice versa.
I've got to admit it's been a while since I've performed in front of such a crazy, wild, thrilled audience.  Oh the enthusiasm and excitement of people going completely nuts about every single move and gesture!
 Also I didn't mind at all knowing that Danko Jones had been in the same backstage the night before - damn he had a gig in another town!!! And on top of all that - my first snow came just when we were leaving the city! Life is good and it's time to wear my crazy winterboots!

Burlesque & Bible

is equal to a wonderful new(ish) magazine, Burlesque Bible, which finally arrived in the post today! In the latest issue, you can read a bit about my thoughts too.
Oh, the photo makes me long for winter! And snow, which I call nature's own glitter. At the moment it's dark like in a sack already in the afternoon, which results in experiments like pictures below.
Passion, 2011
My other half is having solo exhibition in December and we've been making video versions of my burlesque performances - a whole lot to do with death, dance, grotesque & camp.
Blossom, 2011
Luckily this weekend, I can escape the darkness with fellow Hulapirates & fabulous Fiona Timantti to the city of Joensuu! We are performing in bar Kerubi and Joensuu Art Museum as part of the Rokumentti  - rock documentary festival.
Here we are - Kiki & Bent in Tallinn having so much fun :
 Don't you just love travelling with friends? I know I do!
