Models of Diversity Catwalk, Here I Come!

After 'accidentally' getting into modelling this and that as a disabled person, I was contacted by Angel Sinclair of Models Of Diversity to ask whether I would be interested in being part of their catwalk at Earl's Court in London on Saturday 17th March - how on earth could I decline that offer?!!

All the guys and girls who were at the rehearsal on Sunday 11th March

There will be more disabled models at the show this Saturday, including Kelly Knox, Jono Lancaster and more. I am so excited to meet everyone!

Introducing ... Miss Eliza DeLite!!

I would like to introduce you to a beautiful and talented friend of mine, Miss Eliza Delite. This girl has been my friend and neighbour for almost 3 years and has been performing as a burlesque dancer for probably the same amount of time (if not more). I know, I know, not another 'burlesque' dancer - but she is the real deal, she has the right to call herself that. She is one of those burlie girls who can dance, look amazingly attractive and draw you in to whatever world she is creating on stage, without you just thinking 'So when do I see the tassles?!'

She is now part of the The World Burlesque Games 2012 as part of the British Female Crown being held at Bush Hall on May 12th. Their website is here: and you will find Eliza delite on their performers page

Her website is here: Eliza DeLite
and you will find her on facebook here:

She is available for bookings and will travel for shows - you will not be dissapointed!! This is a youtube link to my favourite act of hers: Eliza Delite at ElectroTease Oct 2011

Seeing Old Work Still Looking Glam!

A couple of years ago I designed and made some outfits for Gatecrasher Birmingham and I had occasionally tried to find pictures of them being worn by the pretty dancers but they seemed to have disappeared. UNTIL NOW!! I recently found pictures of an old work colleague who now works as a dancer for GB sporting one of these outfits. Well, when I say outfit, I mean skimpy leotard - obviously!

These pictures were taken by a photographer working for Gatecrasher Birmingham, which I downloaded from their facebook page - these are not my pictures :)

The outfits being worn by the two blondes were my creations!

I am still able to create dancewear for numerous occasions, just email me via my facebook page - facebook/kittycreme

Onwards and Upwards

This is just a short note about the progress of the 'Beauty Through Damage' photo shoot, put together by the very driven and talented Rei Bennett. Last month she took the first step and created some exciting images. Since then she has worked her tail off contacting various disability groups to try to push the project as hard as possible. Her hard work is now making progress and she has had interest from various groups and online publications including having the following blog introduce her work to their network of followers.

Rei has also been told that her work will be followed by 'Disability Now' online magazine, and the ongoing photo shoots exploring beautiful disabled women will be published for their readers to follow as well.

She is talented and ambitious, and also very friendly and welcoming. Rei is now looking for other physically disabled women to take part in these shoots to really get the message out there that people have so many strengths and qualities and these come in all forms, not just 5'10 and standing!

This is her original inspiration for this project:
