Well, it had been a long time coming. My BFF/mentor/burlesque co-pilot Pisa Cake (also known as Colleen, who you have read about here and there before as my roommate) finally pushed me out of the box I had been stuck in for so long and got me to realize one of my goals. She produced a fundraiser for a local animal rescue which involved my getting to work with a few other amazingly lovely ladies (and one very saucy gentleman) to put on a little teaser of burlesque acts. So not only did I get to realize my goal, but I overcame my shyness AND helped raise money to a cause near and dear to my heart. It was a magical night.
So here you have it, my burlesque debut.
