Kabuki Guns Burlesque

Last Saturday Lethbridge was graced by the Kabuki Guns Burlesque (KGB) dancers from Calgary who put on a stellar show at Henotic. I was excited to see this as my only burlesque encounters up to that point had been seeing Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dollz, but I knew there was a whole other world of burlesque out there I had yet to experience!

Just after the girls arrived in Lethbridge, they took some time for an awesome photoshoot with myself, Michael (for a brief while before family matters called), and the lovely Starsha who assisted with lighting (and she has a fantastic eye for detail, so she doubled as our stylist!). We started with the girls’ solo outfits, and I loved their fun costumes. Every costume totally reflected each girl’s personality… and I was especially thrilled when Princess Leia walked out…

[No nudity follows, but burlesque costumes may not be the most “safe for work” ;)]

We wrapped up the shoot with some group shots on the restaurant level, but I don’t think the people dining seemed to mind :)

One of the cool things about the old Firehall are the jail cells that are still downstairs. The space is used as an artist studio, but we were able to sneak down for a bit and lock the girls up.

Later that night, Dirty Girl Social Club out of Calgary opened up the show.

The crowd responded wonderfully to the KGB girls, so I hope they come back to perform for us again!
