Welcome to Burlesque

Anyone seen that Cher film Burlesque. Brilliantly silly. I like the bit where the new girl in town decided to research Burlesque and gets all the books out of the library on it.

Anyway, after many opportunities, finally went to a Burlesketch. The model was Chici.

An interesting experience. Maybe a little too objectifying for me, but it made me smile. Chici said she usually got more whooping from her audience. And we were told we had to applaud when she entered, which we dutifully did. In the silence of a life drawing class her beads rattled like anxious insects.

The model this week was Maryam, who had fantastic hair that just asked to be drawn.
