This is the season of scifi burlesque. But if you want to stand out from the crowd, there's nothing like doing a lesbian version of Edward and Bella's romance from the Twilight series - complete with pregnancy and birth scene.
Looking at these pictures makes me feel as dirty as watching the movies did - which is saying a lot.
Thanks to New York burlesque dancers Little Brooklyn and Madame Rosebud, and Molly Crabapple of Dr. Sketchy's, for making my Friday a little smuttier and more surreal.
