Sweet Carousel's Laced Up Cabaret + a Giveaway Winner!

 Janis from Dress Me Dearly and I

This past Friday I joined some of Edmonton's most eclectic, fun and unique individuals at the Empire Ballroom to take in Sweet Carousel Corsetry's much-anticipated 'Laced Up Cabaret.'  The place was packed and the energy in the room was buzzing even before the show started.

I was able to get a few pics of the crowd. I love how people dressed up, some even in costumes.

The dress on the left was made entirely out of latex!

Burlesque dancer 'Lucky L'Amore' started the show off with a cute little striptease....

And then the much-anticipated fashion show started.

How gorgeous are these hand-made corsets?? Seriously!

All the models had major sass. It was so fun watching them strut their stuff across the stage as the crowd whistled and cheered them on.

Cheeky ; )

I so wanted to try these on.

What I loved about the show (besides all the beautiful corsets obviously) was that the models were all different shapes and sizes; they totally OWNED the stage and looked like they were having a blast up there!

Talented designer Elise Truong waves to the crowd at the end of a very successful show.

Hair was done by Davines and makeup by Lady Venom Cosmetics. 
Both did such an amazing job!

Bloggerrrrrs! Jenna, Janis and I

If you missed the show this year, don't worry. Lucky for us, Elise tells me she plans on making the show an annual event! You can bet your "sass" I'll be in the front row every year ; ).

Also, congratulations to Jerrica  for winning the Chelsea Crew Booties from NET A LA MODE! Thank you to NET A LA MODE for sponsoring this giveaway and to everyone who entered. I have another giveaway coming up soon so stay tuned!

Amazing!! And like you said, what I especially love about all of this was the fact that all the models were so different. It's so refreshing to see some uniqueness and personality on a catwalk instead of the usual models-as-hangers type that usually walks down them. You ladies all look beautiful too, I'm loving your chic black look!
