We didn’t treat you like family, you ARE family as far as I am concerned! That’s just how we roll in Texas. :) Thank YOU for these amazing images. I really have gotten to relive the day looking through them. My only wish was that you hadn’t gotten so stressed out over it and that you got to actually enjoy the day too :) You did an above and beyond job. I am lucky to have such talented people in my life. Each and every one of y’all inspires me to try new things and look at life in new ways. Big hugs from Texas!

Hey Erica – it dawned on me that someone might want to know who the individual burlesque acts were. Broads and Panties ran the show that included:
Levi DesPeu Chapeaux – the lovely but deadly lady above with a ray gun
Dorian D’Muerta – the hula hooping beauty queen who never missed a beat
Pixie O’Kneel- Shimming beauty and her sword
Vivienne Vermuth – HBIC ‘Head Beauty in Charge’ – and lovely in red from head to foot above
Lula Hoop Garou – the amazing stripping TARDIS – a Doctor Who dream come true
