Datura Bordeaux: The Cigarette Girls

Datura Bordeaux of The Cigarette Girls

I am back to work on The Cigarette Girls Series that I began working on a year ago.  Madeline stopped by today to finally look through her images and we did a quick work through and I was able to put them on a disc before she left.  Her burlesque name is Datura Bordeaux, the tag line on her facebook page suggests “Lost through the veil of time, Mademoiselle Datura Bordeaux brings her post colonial exoticism to the stage, dancing with sword and veil, she brings you “danse du ventre!””   I think the images capture the essence of her style and personality.  They were a blast to work on and with minor tweaking were ready for publication.

The Cigarette Girls is Missoula’s premiere Burlesque Troupe.   I begun bringing the girls into my studio and photographing them one by one at the beginning of last year.   I somehow got very busy the later part of the summer and fall and never got back to finish them.  I will begin working my way back through these images and put the series of my site in the next couple of days.  Datura is the first.   I love these girls!!
