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.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks to Nona Narcisse of Slow Burn Burlesque for being our muse for the evening; thanks to our sponsors Atomic Books and Baby Tattoo Books for providing prizes for the contests; thanks to Russell for slinging booze and music; thanks to Jeff for some of the photos you see below; thanks to Valeria Voxx for helping set up the stage and hold down the fort at the door; and thanks to Alexis for emceeing the whole affair.
