Burlesque Highlights: Rock Candy Burlesque’s “O Christmas Tease” Holiday Spectacular

Olympia, WA’s Rock Candy Burlesque, a wonderful troupe that I know and love, put on their very first holiday-themed burlesque show this year. It was a two-show one-night event called “O Christmas Tease” (a play on “O Christmas Tree”…get it?”)

It is always a pleasure to work with the Rock Candy gals, their shows are so fun! They inject elements of drag, tap dance, and comedy into their shows making each experience really unique, edgy, and fun (not to mention sexy!)

Here’s some live shots and portraits from the day of the event. Enjoy!

Frida Fondle was the fabulous MC for the night.
