Some of the best names in burlesque paraded past in panties and pasties during the four-day Colorado Burlesque Festival, a gathering of burlesque stars from near and far, in Denver this weekend. Brandon Marshall brought back these images from the Friday-night showcase at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret.

Now see the full Colorado Burlesque Festival slide show.
