We wanted to send a huge thank you out to everyone who was able to make it to The Pastie Project book launch party recently.  It is such a pleasure to share this book with you, and we are grateful for your support.  This party was for all those who contributed to the making of this book, and without whom, there would BE no book!  To our little book design and production team: Ben, Tiny and Liz- it couldn’t have happened without you.

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!”

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.
