The highlight of my first trip to watch the Burlesque Hall of Fame (BHOF) Weekend 2012 was volunteering to help out Ms. Jean Idelle with my Brown Girls Burlesque sister Chicava HoneyChild.
Big THANKS to Chicava and Dr. Ginger Snapz for their efforts in bringing Ms. Jean to BHOF2012!
Below is a postcard keepsake created by Carolyn Moore!
