Turku Burlesque Weekend´13, a set on Flickr.I feel like I have given birth 130 times and each time, the child has been taken away immediately.
Turku Burlesque Weekend’13 exceeded all my highest hopes and i am grateful to all the people who made my dream come true. And that means YOU, YOU and YOU!
New Comers Night’13 VOL 1 was one giant parade of bunnies, mermaids, sailors, human coctails, doughnuts, monkeys, private detectives, beauty queens, bondage and glamour from the past. From the bottom of my heart, I congratulate Flaming Fruitcakes, Mimi Carelia, No elegance, Molly Moonstone, Glamour ladies, Tellervo Rynnäs-Kintukas, Nina Bomboloni, Shimmering Sheilas, Miss SeaWind, Niina Giljotiina, Nefer and Bambi Von Deerheart & Heinz Von Wunderbaum – a job well done!
Neon Light Safari took us all the way from Siperia, trashcans, late night mobster snacks and classic films to the future, Egypt, circus, grill party, la la land and crisis in Cuba. From womanhood to manhood and everything in between bound together by the most important thing in the world = L-O-V-E.
