BOOK LAUNCH PARTY 6/28!

Come one, come all, to our BOOK LAUNCH PARTY!  Wednesday, June 28, 7-10PM at The Berg’n in Brooklyn!

Pastie Project Book Launch insta flier

It’s HERE! The Pastie Project Book was successfully funded by a Kickstarter campaign in March of 2017, and we hope you can make it to our book launch party to pick up a copy of own, or bring yours by to be signed by the author, Rosey La Rouge!

This is a FREE open-house style event, with snacks from Lumpia Shack, drink service, and special treats.

The Pastie Project books are available for purchase at the party for $45, which is a $20 discount off the cover price. Proceeds will go to The Burlesque Hall of Fame Legends Challenge for next year. We will have other Pastie Project merch for purchase as well, including stickers, Pastie Timeline prints, and Pastie Project playing cards!

Aaaaaaand! In case you need some amazing sparkly pasties all your own, Cheeky Cheetah of Glorious Pasties will be there vending her gorgeous GLORIOUS wares!

Party Host with the most @Peter Aguero will guide us through the night!!

We would love to see your smiling faces out to support this labor of love and Rosey’s personal gift to the burlesque community. Thank you to everyone who contributed to make this project happen! Come celebrate the book that celebrates burlesque costume history!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, to all those who helped The Pastie Project reach over 160% of our Kickstarter goal!

Because we surpassed our publishing goal, we will be able to send $500 to the Burlesque Hall of Fame Legends Challenge Fund, which helps Burlesque Legends with travel expenses to get to the BHOF Weekender in June.

The books and rewards will be sent out in June, and we will have a book release party late the same month to celebrate The Pastie Project’s success and its availability on Amazon.com.

The magical burlesque community, it’s supporters and fans have made this dream possible, and I cannot be more excited to share a book made with all of my love for the change, art and joy burlesque has brought to my life.

WE MADE OUR KICKSTARTER GOAL! WHAT’S NEXT?

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
