Enjoy this cool montage video that was put together by friends of mine. Stay tuned for more soon!
Good morning everyone. I’m so excited to announce that the winter and holiday issue of the pinup magazine, “Passion Pinups” came out today and guess who their covergirl is…..ME! I’m so honored to be on the cover and I wanted to thank everyone who is part of of Passion Pinups for making an incredible issue. Make sure to contact Passion Pinups on Facebook, their Twitter, or on their Instagram page to get your copy of this beautiful issue!
For part 2 of this shoot, my inspiration was still the “Victorian Lady” theme obviously but I wanted to dress and pose how a burlesque dancer from the early 1900’s would’ve dressed. I definitely did my research on this considering burlesque is a major passion of mine but I also took inspiration from one of my favorite television shows, “Murdoch Mysteries,” which is a brilliant Canadian show that I recommend to everyone.
I love the second hat fascinator from Debra Shirley and it worked perfectly with my Victorian corset, my fishnets that I stoned myself, and my other accessories. I wanted to do both outside and inside shots since this is a little bit more of a “PEEK A BOO” shoot but still “CLASSY AS ALWAYS!” That’s a true burlesque performer.
Hope you enjoy my second photoshoot images. All makeup and hair done by myself and this my very own costume. Photos taken by the best, Nick Sorat!
I’ve had the privileged to be featured in a brand new, Volume 1 PIN UP Magazine, “SEX KITTEN PIN UP MAGAZINE,” and I’m so extremely honored, flattered, and incredibly excited.
The few photos used for this particular magazine of mine were ones from the my “EMERALD BURLESQUE PERFORMER SHOOT,” taken by Hamayak (Hami)Hakopian makeup done by me, and my hair done by Elisa Lara. You can find them both on social media, especially if you check out, read, and follow my site posts here under here;

In my article “My Top Three Favorite Drag Queens,” I didn’t include the fabulous Ben De La Creme because even though she is definitely one of my all time favorite drag queens, I felt she needed an article post all to herself.
Here is a little information about Ben de la creme and why I love her:
First off, when I first saw her on RuPaul’s drag race, she came out and introduced herself and stated that Ben de la creme is “terminally delightful” which I thought was brilliant. I instantly loved her look and fashion and fell in love immediately with her personality. Because of her wonderful personality, she won “Miss Congeniality” on Season 6. Every time I watch anything with De La, she instantly makes my smile and laugh, whether I’m in a sad mood or not.
Another reason I love DeLa is because her performances include COMEDY, BURLESQUE, (WHICH OF COURSE I LOVE AND AM OBSESSED WITH BECAUSE I’M A BURLESQUE PERFORMER AS WELL) and ALL AROUND GLAMOUR, including PINUP GLAMOUR, (WHICH OF COURSE IS RIGHT UP MY ALLEY TOO!)
I wish Ben De La Creme was my brother or my sister because of all the things we have in common. He is so gorgeous as a man and as a woman.
ONE OF MY WISHES AND GOALS IS TO DO A DOUBLE BURLESQUE STYLE ROUTINE WITH BEN DE LA CREME AND TO DO A DOUBLE HOLLYWOOD PINUP SHOOT WITH HER!
I CAN’T WAIT TO MEET Ben De La Creme at RUPAUL’S DRAG CON in Los Angeles in May!
Here’s De La’s website with links to her social media:

Normally I never really show behind the scene pictures on here unless I really enjoyed the shoot. This last shoot I did I really enjoyed. It was a photographer named Hamayak Hakopian or “Hami” that I had shot with a lot in the past but hadn’t seen in a few years. We always kept in contact but with our schedules, it was hard to book a shoot. Finally a few weeks ago we did. We shot at Lumino Studios, where I did my pinup Valentine’s shoot, and our shoot took place in the Emerald Room of the studio house, perfect for me since that’s my birthstone.
I had such a nice time with him. He brought in an EXTREMELY TALENTED Hair Stylist who brought my curls to life named Elisa Lara who was such a darling. I donned a new emerald green corset, appropriate for where I was shooting, my swarovski crytal fishnet stockings and my 7 and a half tall dance stiletto booties with matching crystals. I felt absolutely beautiful in my burlesque wear.
Hami is such a sweet and very professional photographer and I enjoy our work relationship a lot. I’m so excited to see the actual shots from this shoot. In the meantime, I decided to give you all a little tease. Elisa took some behind the scene shots of me while I was getting photographed and I loved the look of them so much that I decided to post them here to get you all ready for the actual photoshoot images. Enjoy!
You can find Hami through Hama Hakopian on Facebook and Instagram under @hamiecool and you can find Elisa and her work through Instagram under @glambyElisa
