WE MADE OUR KICKSTARTER GOAL! WHAT’S NEXT?

Pastie Project cover finished

THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who has donated, shared and promoted this Kickstarter!  We are so very excited to have reached our primary goal last night!

What does this mean?

Reaching our primary goal means that we can go to print with the book, so everyone’s orders will be filled!  Hooray!

What’s next?

Now that we have a whole 11 days left to continue our fundraising, here is what will happen-

We might actually recover some of our costs for creating the book, meaning money we paid for photo rights, illustrations, and services!  Woo!

After we recover some of these costs, the rest of this fundraiser $ will be donated to The Burlesque Hall of Fame Legends Challenge, which helps to fund travel expenses for Burlesque Legends who want to come to the BHOF Weekender.  Additionally, we hope to donate swag to the Weekender Volunteer/Performer gift bags!

What should happen now?

Continue to spread the word, continue to pledge!  Anything we make over our goal and costs only helps the BHOF Legends Challenge more!

Plus, anyone placing a preorder for the book here will be saving 25-40% off the cover cost after this challenge, so, if you want the book, order it HERE and now!  Let’s make a new goal of $12,125, which would up us to 150% of our original goal.

Thank you again!  Let’s see how far we can take The Pastie Project together!

xoxo,

Rosey La Rouge

Ice Cream Social with April March, “First Lady of Burlesque”

It was my pleasure to spend time with Burlesque Legend April March in her home this summer, talking to her about her burlesque career and documenting some of her vintage costume pieces.  She is one of the friendiest people I’ve ever met, and our afternoon together is a memory I’ll treasure- especially our afternoon ice cream treat!  Read the full interview HERE, on Burlesque Beat.

I had an idea today.  Pastie Project Playing Cards!  I’m working on them now.  They will be available for purchase soon!  Four lucky pasties from the archive get to be the suits, and the face cards will be some of our most memorable pieces.  Still deciding on the joker…!
