So in the second part of my Adventures in America towards my 'It Ain't Ballet? Photographic comparison of Pro-Wrestling and Cabaret' was obviously the Cabaret! I was invited to New York to visit Burlesque Goddess Legs Malone and Beautifully bonkers film maker/ Punk musician Lola Rocknrolla. I have to say I was in terribly good company!
I have never been to America before let alone New York, and it was everything I imagined it to be and more. I was greeted by a heat wave, not something someone from Glasgow is used to! After a rather stressful journey from Philly to NYC on a train bigger than anything I have ever seen, several subway trains due to cancellations and a broken suitcase, I arrived at the wonderful flat that was to be my home for the next two weeks. Legs is one of those people with the immediate ability to make everything all better with just a kind look. After Pizza and meeting my animal housemates for the trip we hit the ground running with 'Behind the Velvet Curtain' at the Beauty Bar
The following day I got a chance to photograph and do a wee turn at Wolfshine Burlesque, a lovely burlesque night run by Legs Malone in a charming little Brooklyn Biker Bar. Reminded me of the early Silhouette Burlesque shows and I felt right at home right away! Apologies to the lovely ladies who were on before me who I wasn't able to photograph.

Amongst my other adventures in New York outwith the project, I got to dance for Lola's awesome Punk Band 'Sweet Tits'
Thanks to Legs for taking the pics of me
