Episode 34 - Regina Stargazer as The Fisherman's Wife

If you're in NYC this coming Tuesday, you should definitely check out Geek Girl Production's Annual Comic Book Show (Issue #3)!  Founded by our very own Lo Hung, GGP's annual extraveganza of sequential tarts (har har) include Cosplay Burlesque performers Scarlet Stepford, Leo Arcanum, and Murder Nurse, along with city cutie Emmy Electric!  10pm, Tuesday March 13, at the Bowery Poetry Club!

For this week's episode, we delve into serious art.  I'm talking high culture, people.  You're all familiar with The Great Wave Over Kanagawa?  Well, the artist, Hokusai, didn't limit himself to landscapes and nature scenes.  You see, he was also concerned with the great societal issues of the day - like cephalophilia.  Even back in the 1800's, tentacle-on-woman action was already a thing.  Japan is such a progressive country.

Our very own Regina Stargazer (you might also know her from her many personae with the White Elephant Burlesque Society) brings this classic woodcut to life this week as The Fisherman's Wife

Music:  "I Am One" by Javier Calderon, from the soundtrack to The Fashionistas (link VERY NSFW) (available in the deluxe DVD box set from Evil Angel Video)

Hey Boston!  The very lovely Fonda Feeling and Geek Girls Boston are hosting Space Case Burlesque on February 2, 2012, at Club Oberon in Hahvahd Squahe.   Check out Club Oberon's website for details.

So...our ladies and dudes are totes famous.  Like our performer this week, Esmerelda...a cashier recognized her at Best Buy this week.  He was all like, "You're in Cosplay Burlesque!"  And she was all like, "Hell yeah!"  And he was all like, "You're hot!"  And she was all like, "Aw, thanks, sweetie - you should come to more of our shows!"

So he was like, "How do I find out where and when Cosplay Burlesque is performing?"  And she was like, "At!  The totally revamped website has all of our upcoming shows, plus you can watch our podcast episodes right there!"  And he was all like, "Sweet!"

This week, the captivating Esmerelda Athena May ensnares us with a mystery...and Miss Scarlet!

Episode 24 - Fonda Feeling as Poison Ivy

Happy 2012, faithful viewers!  Less than a year away 'till the end of the world...unless the supervillians have their way.

Now we all know who has the best villians - The Goddamn Batman, that's who.  His Rogue's Gallery is chock-full of the most awesome, messed-up psychos to ever rob a bank or heist some jewels.  

Batman is also has the most wood-inspiring bad guys, and I'm not talking about Woodrue.  Naw, if there's any villian guaranteed to give 'em a "green thumb" (har har), it's the lovely, the luscious Poison Ivy.  

This week, Fonda Feeling shows us just how to open her petals in a Cosplay Burlesque performance in her hometown of Boston.  Besides Cosplay Burlesque performances, you can also see Fonda heading up the Boston branch of Geek Girl Productions.  Check them out this coming February 2 at Oberon for their Space Case show!
