What better way to start off a new month than with a photo of a seductively-clad lady? The Colorado Burlesque calendar will do just that with its 2012 incarnation, to be released Thursday night at Bender's at 8 p.m. The calendar features twelve of Colorado's dazzling burlesque stars in action, beautifully photographed by Colorado Burlesque's Alex Rimorin.
Here's a sneak peak:
Miss January: Midnite Martini "The mile high flying tease!" Miss February: Peggy Tulane "Clocktower Clockettes!" Miss March: Kitty Crimson "Oooh La La Presents!" Miss April: Gezelle Za Belle "Peaks and Pasties!" Miss May: Orchid Mei "Clocktower Clockettes!" Miss June: Fannie Spankings "Colorado's sweetest peach!" Miss July: Honey Touche' "The sweetheart of burlesque!" Miss August: Lola Spitfire "Heir to the fire tassles!" Miss September: Chalita Bang Bang "The Mexican jumping bean!" Miss October: Ava L'amour "Peaks and Pasties!" Miss November: Cherry Pop Pop Poppins "Get those pasties poppin!" Miss December: Cora Vette "Burly Cute!"
