Miss Exotic World Pageant Winners!

Did I really think I was going to have time to blog on this wild trip???

I just have to make this post happen, though. Thanks to all the performers, the producers, volunteers, and audience of the show, and congratulations to the winners!

And thanks to our judges, Catherine D'Lish, Lily Burana, Lisa Kereszi, Grant Philipo, and Viva La Fever! The performers were all outstanding and they had quite a task.

When I get home I'll post more photos. In the meantime, search on flickr for "exotic world" and "burlesque hall of fame," and you should see some fabulous shots!

Oh, hooray for Perle! I had the extreme pleasure of being in a show with her in March and she is just jaw-droppingly wonderful.

Angie looks deservedly happy. What a thrill!

I was sitting with a bunch of the Legends during Angie's performance, and simply from their commentary, I knew Angie was going to win it.

I wish the winners were given time to enjoy their triumph on stage, but I'm assuming this was due to more Palms douche-baggery. Still, a wonderful show....and the glittertards completely rocked it like there was no tommorrow.

I think my favorite act was Sexy Mark Brown's JAWS number...but you know me and sharks
