This may very well be the last time the lovely Roma Mafia poses for Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore, as I write, she’s preparing to move to San Francisco, if she’s not on the road already.  Who knows though, maybe she’ll come back to visit and we’ll get lucky–you never know.  She went out with a bang though.  Take a look, Lord knows, words can’t do her session justice.

We gave away a copy of Idle Hands: The Art of Coop from Baby Tattoo Books.  You should check the out.

Thank you to Craig Hankin, Fred Oakes, Joan Cox, Liza Figueroa, Patrick Kluga, Stewart White, and Tim Kelly for emailing or posting to Facebook the photos you see below.

Many, many thanks to Roma Mafia and Cuddles the Snake for being our muses for the evening; thanks to our sponsor Baby Tattoo Books; thanks to Russell of the Windup Space for slinging drinks & tunes; thanks to Jeff for the photos you see below; thanks to Maeve for helping set everything up, take it down, and help Alexis on the stage; and of course thanks to Alexis for keeping the mic in line all evening.

Sophia Sunday on a Saturday.

We’ve gotten a little behind with our blog posts – busy, busy, busy, but we’re catching up.  Sophia Sunday’s session was amazing, and her Fever act is easily one of my favorite burlesque acts.  The video and Alexis’s photos do a lot better job backing that up that my silly words could, so take a look.

We’d like to thank Matt Craft, Tim Kelly, John Schloman, Fred Zeleny, and Hannah Levasseur for sending in their drawings, which you can see in the gallery below.

Super duper thanks to Sophia Sunday of Gilded Lily Burlesque for being our muse for the evening; special thanks to our generous sponsor Atomic Books for providing prizes for the various drawing contests; thanks to Maeve for holding the door down and helping do all the setup and takedown stuff; thanks to Russell for slinging booze and tunes; and of course thanks to Alexis for the beautiful photos you see before and running the mic for the whole hootenanny.

This was Nona Narcisse’s second time posing for Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore.  As Alexis likes to put it, Nona is like a bird – she spends her winters in New Orleans and migrates up to Baltimore and other places here and there for the summer.  If we get lucky, maybe we’ll get a chance to see her again next summer.

Atomic Books, up on the corner of the Avenue and Falls Rd in Hampden, provided a fancy-pancy Betty Paige hip flask for one lucky contest winner and Baby Tattoo Books provided a copy of Atrum Secretum by Gris Grimly for another.

Thank you to John Schloman, Kimberly Keyes Stark, Hannah LeVasseur, and Tim Kelly for sending in their artwork which we’ve included below.
