We could not be more honored and excited to present Pastie History at The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender!  Thank you to Jo Weldon and BurlyCon for asking The Pastie Project to participate this year.  Tickets are just $10, and proceeds go to The Burlesque Hall of Fame!  Here is a link to info and tickets!  All Community presentations on Thursday, June 1 are held in Bienneville Salon J, and you can get a discounted pass to attend all four!  Pastie History is from 3:30-4:30!  Can’t wait to see you there!

Here’s a blurb about the presentation:

“This presentation is all about pasties! How has the construction of pasties changed over time, and how have they evolved in the neo-burlesque movement? If you want to know more about the history of the pastie and why the smallest costume pieces in burlesque are some of the most significant, come listen to Rosey La Rouge, author of The Pastie Project, discuss all of the above. You’ll see beautiful examples of historic and modern pasties from around the world, all part of The Pastie Project photo archive. Bring a notebook and writing implement if you wish, we’ll be covering a lot of info, and you may want to jot it down. There will be time for Q&A at the end of this presentation. Get an up-close view of pasties inside and out, and get inspired!”
