Recent Burlesque Outings

After a fairly quiet month, it's been a busy week for burlesque. First to report, Cardiff-based musicians Jason "Flapsandwich" Philips and Sandor "Cosmo" Dus, having made an anti-Brexit protest song, asked if I would like to contribute some burlesque dancing to the music video. Always being up for some insanity to liven up the day,... Continue Reading →

A Belated Escape

Anyone who has followed this blog from the early days (assuming anyone has) will know that it has been a long-standing desire of mine to change my current job - a manual labour post in a very male-dominated, and occasionally toxic warehouse environment - for something both more congenial and less monotonous. Indeed, it has... Continue Reading →

Matrix Consolations

(In the dressing room with fellow newbie soloist Schnitzel Von Krumpet. Lovely chap, wonderful performer, and hopefully now as permanent a fixture of the Cardiff burlesque scene as I intend to be ...) In the latest chapter of what has been, on many levels, the most challenging, fulfilling, scary, and exciting year of my life,... Continue Reading →

Thus, as requested, my better judgement notwithstanding, here is exhibit A. I am the suspect at the very far right of the scene, on the dancefloor. Please be forgiving... Continue Reading →

Bad Things

(The obligatory dressing room group shot, although not the complete group, as some dancers were doing up to three routines and solo dances that night. I was less ambitious, but maybe one day ...) Over the past three weeks I have gradually been getting more mobile and independent, doing small shopping trips, taking accompanied walks,... Continue Reading →

Showgirl at the seaside …

Here are a few snaps from my latest photoshoot down in Mathry, West Wales, in the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. This was going to be my final shoot before surgery - a quick change of scene before my extended indoor convalescence - but given my recent bad news on that score, there is now... Continue Reading →
