Revival Bar, Toronto
So I’ve never been to a burlesque/pinup pageant before but what a great idea! The fabulous gals over at Missy/Ink Magazine (http://www.missyink.com/), whose motto is “Femininely Bad-Ass and Sincerely Sexy”, put out the call through social media for contestants and we were treated to a night of burlesque performances and 3 rounds of pageantry from 15 beautiful pin-up hopefuls all vying for a chance to win a feature interview in the magazine, among other great prizes.
Our judges for the evening were from all over the burlesque and pin-up realm and included Dana Brushette, associate editor and head of photography for Missy/Ink; Larissa of Blonde Moxie Makeup, Toronto’s go-to makeup and hair diva; Mysterion, Canada’s foremost mentalist and fab burlesque producer; and Rick Frayne.
