Darlinda Just Darlinda makes me smile -- even when rainy days make me cry

Darlinda Just Darlinda cracked me up with these wonderful cloud pasties while at the Slipper Room (complete with rain drops!).


Lady Crimson's crimson pasties

The pasties that cap these bountiful and beautiful breasts belong to Lady Crimson, and were featured at Lucky Fridays in March of 2007. Lucky pasties!


Fem Appeal's adorable gingerbread men

These sweet holiday pasties are from Kitty Nights in December of 2006. I'm a sucker for holiday-themed pasties and Fem never disappoints.


Fem Appeal is watching you

Fem wore these amazing homemade pasties at Kitty Nights in August of 2006. Every time I see her, she has another pastie surprise under her outfit! Are these not amazing??


More pectoral-pasties!!

Christmas pasties! I said I was going to hold off on the holiday stuff until after thanksgiving, but I couldn't. I caved! Here's Dizzy Swank, amazing performer and photographer, rocking the Swanky Claus pasties at Lucky Fridays in December of 2006.

And, a big thank you to those who pointed out that "man boobs" was not a flattering term. I'm using "pectoral pasties instead." I didn't know. Mea culpa.


A Pinkie Special special goodbye

Ohh I feel the tears a-comin'. I am so sad to say a (hopefully temporary) goodbye to NYC's own Pinkie Special, who we are losing to France. I hope all you folks in France are happy! You are getting a one of our best.

These pasties were from this weekend's BadAss! Four-Year Annivesary show, November 15, 2008. Pinkie was undead, but her glitter and blood pasties kept everyone else wide-awake.

Hotter than ever, Stormy Leather

Stormy Leather rocked these black leather, o-ring, and rivets pasties at Kitty Nights in December of 2006. H-O-T!


A rare treat: Triple pastie shot!

Here are, in order left to right, Plum Manchego, Dazie Tomatoes, and Gal Friday, at Kitty Nights in February of 2007. How often does this happen: Six beautiful pasties all in a row? Well, almost never!


Rounding out the Fifi Dupree posts

Here's the lovely lady sharing fluffy, fuzzy, soft and pretty puff-pasties. These are from a show in December of 2006 at Lucky Fridays, held at NYC's Lucky Cheng's. I miss Lucky Fridays!


Gal Friday wearing her recently purchased Fifi Dupree pasties

I believe these were pasties Gal Friday bought from Fifi Dupree at Kitty Nights. I do know that Gal wore these at Kitty Nights in February of 2007. Aren't they beautiful? And they look amazing next to her skin! Trimmed in black lace, besequined with red, and just lovely.

Pandora's awesome purple hand pasties

I thought these were amazing! Purple, be-sequined, tasseled hand pasties! Pandora wore these in July 2006, at Kitty Nights, for a fantastic purple-roped bondage act.

Fifi Dupree selling some of her beautiful handmade pasties

This picture is from January 2007, at Kitty Nights, held at Bar on A. The pasties were all lovely (just like their creator) and very popular.


More of Fifi's handmade pasties, on Dazie Tomatoes

Dazie Tomatoes models some of Fifi Dupree's handmade pasties at Lucky Fridays in January of 2007. These pasties have got it all: leopard-print, tassels, and sequins! What's not to love?


More Fifi Dupree!

More handmade pasties by Mz. Fifi Dupree, that is. And don't they look lovely on their creator? (Top and bottom.)

SO pretty!

Fifi Dupree's handmade pasties

Fifi Dupree made beautiful pasties for sale. These are from a February 2007 show. I believe (but am not certain) that Gal Friday bought them.

Burgundy Brixx's clothespin pasties

Burgundy Brixx ends a very powerful act with the act of putting clothespins on her (?) pastie-covered nipples, at Kitty Nights, March 2007.


Janice Di Milo thinks books are beautiful, too

It's the Dewey-Decimal System! On pasties! Janice unveiled these at the Sugar Shack (February '07) for her naughty librarian act.


Velocity Chyaldd straps on some electrical tape

Velocity wore these at Dottie Lux's birthday party at Brooklyn's Galapagos in March of 2007. Lucky electrical tape pasties!!


Janice Di Milo before and after PhotoShop

This is the original shot of Janice Di Milo doing her prom queen (with a secret or two) act at Sugar Shack at the long-lost Clinton Street Lotus in February of 2007.

Here is the retouched photo, just for giggles.

Gal Friday -- It's all about the Benjamins

More money! I love money pasties! Gal Friday rocked these at the very first HyperGender, April of 2007.

Tula LaGams Hasidic pasties

Tula LaGams featured these Hasidic pasties in July of 2007 at HyperGender as part of her (very well done) act. Most unusual!


Li'l Miss Lixx's kitty-titties

I thought these were brilliant. I believe this was the first time I saw Lixx, at January 2007's Kitty Nights at Bar on A, NYC. When she unveiled them, the audience erupted into applause. Deservedly so.

Burgundy Brixx's little yellow birdies

Are these not adorable? Burgundy Brixx wore these in January of 2007 at Kitty Nights. Feathers! Googly eyes! Glitter!

Mini Malicious channels Al Bundy

These custom pasties were worn by Mini Malicious at Kitty Nights in January of 2007. They complimented her 'Married with Children' act perfectly.

New section: Pectoral Pasties!

This picture, sent to me by the man himself, is JD Weiner, at Jo Boobs' student showcase. From JD:

"I was at one of Jo's student showcases, and she asked for a volunteer, like she usually does. Suddenly I've got four women pushing me, saying "Go! Go! Go!" So I figure what the hell, let's give it a shot. And I get up there on stage with Jo at the Slipper Room, and she has me take off my shirt, and puts the pasties on me, and whispers in my ear how to twirl them, and I have a go at it. The audience seemed to like it. When I thanked Jo later, she said, "I always figured you had an exhibitionist streak." And here is the photographic evidence... BTW, that carpet tape is strong stuff. These are really not intended for us folks with hair around our nipples. OW."

How JD suffers for his art.

Bonnie Voy'age's soft white furballs

Ms. Bonnie Voy'age, a multitalented performer, delighted the folks at the Shaken and Stirred 2-year anniversary show at the Slipper Room in September of 2008. She was an angel at first...(and that's all I'll say!).

Pookie Patootie dazzles the crowd

Pookie wore these and stunned the crowd at the $pread magazine "Grind the Vote" show in July of 2008. They sparkled with every move she made and the crystals picked up the prismatic lights from the other jewelry she wore. Glamorous! The crowd at the Slipper Room went wild when she opened up her white fans and these pasties peeked out!

Unreal SirReal!

These pasties were part of a much larger lobster-themed outfit. (If I did a merkin blog, you'd see her lovely large red lobster one.) Can you see the seaweed poking out? Too much!


Belladonnas de Lux's tiki

Australia's Belladonnas de Lux showed off these tiki-inspired babies at the 2007 New York Burlesque Festival to rave reviews.

Jo Boobs' babies

Jo Boobs showcased these beauties at the New York Burlesque Festival in September of 2007. I can say, I've never seen anything like them! Gorgeous!


Ruby Valentine's latex-covered lovelies

Ruby Valentine took part in The Baroness' latex fashion show at Porn Rock Easter Ball, Easter 2008. She's showing off red and white latex nunnery pasties and a matching wimple. Smokin' hot!

Jasmine Blushes makes me blush!

Jasmine Blushes' tat cradles her underboob. SO pretty! Jasmine is wearing black satiny ruffled pasties with large crystals sewn in. I suspect she made them herself, as she's a talented costumier.

Golden Gal Friday

Gal Friday, bathed in warm golden light, displays her crystal-encrusted pasties at HyperGender's Goddesses show in March of 2008. Beautiful!

Dirty Martini's patriotic pasties

Dirty Martini models her patriotic pasties at HyperGender's Goddesses show in March of 2008. Red, white and blue sequins with long, silky red tassels. Yum!

Delirium Tremens

One of NYC's most beautiful women, Delirium Tremens, models her red and black pasties, worn at the the Slipper Room in February of 2008. I love the ring of black crystals surrounding the ruby red, plus the long black silky tassels.

Guest Breast!

New section on the blog: the Guest Breast! These lovelies belong to Seattle's finest, Miss Indigo Blue, performing at the Slipper Room in February of 2008. I believe these were worn when she did her addictive "Do the Jane Fonda" routine. Indigo in indigo.

Lady Lucerne's light-up pasties

Lady Lucerne wore these delightful light-up pasties at the Slipper Room in February of 2008, as part of her vacuum-cleaner act. Unfortunately, the right one failed to light. But you get the idea, right?

World Famous *BoB*'s breasts

These are the gold standard against which others are measured. Her pasties have a tough job clinging to such bountiful breasts! I'm not complaining though, as I get to enjoy those inevitable pastie failures! *BoB* wore these ruby red babies at BadAss! Burlesque in June of 2008.

Sweet sailor pasties

Another unknown artist! I shot this woman at the Mermaid Parade this past summer and I loved her sailor outfit, complete with nautical pasties. And, even though I know it's not good for you, the tan lines are H-O-T!

Unknown pastie-wearer at the Mermaid Parade

Oh, I wish I knew this woman's name -- she posed for me at the Mermaid Parade this year and I didn't catch her name. But she sure has beautiful breasts and pretty pasties!

Pussy pasties!

N, the NC-17 of burlesque (with good reason), wore these pretty handmade pussy pasties (and a matching merkin) at HyperGender's Glitter Bomb show in August of 2008. It boggles the mind to see a pussy merkin on a pussy. But, as I said, this is a pasties blog. Merkin blog may be up next.

Stormy Leather's 420 pasties

Stormy Leather wore these pretty pot pasties at BadAss! Burlesque's Drugz show in June of 2008 at the Bowery Poetry Club. She also had a pot merkin, precariously placed, but this is a pasties blog, not a merkin one. However, that might not be a bad project idea! Hmm...

Shelly the Singing Siren seduces with succulent sin cushions (six of 'em!)

Shelly wowed the crowd at Darlinda Just Darlinda's Year in Rainbow Finale show at the Zipper Factory in August of 2008. Not just two pretty red pasties to ogle, but six! Can you beat that?

Lady Lucerne's crossbones and skulls

She's not scary at all, but these pasties are! Lady Lucerne wore these at the Slipper Room's Hot Box Burlesque in August of 2008, as part of her Big Wheel-lovin' routine to "Fat Bottomed Girls." Awesome!

Jo Boobs' boobs (with pasties and bondage rope)

Jo Boobs' famous (and infamous) "International Lover" routine features these pretty pasties, along with an expertly tied Japanese rope dress. Plus, purple tassels!

Dottie Lux has three brains!

These were actually the pasties that made me think about starting this project (and blog). Dottie Lux wore these gruesome brain pasties at BadAss! Burlesque in June of 2008.

Darlinda Just Darlinda's rainbow pasties (with tassels)

These pretty rainbow pasties with elegant tassels were worn by Darlinda Just Darlinda at her Year in Rainbow Finale show at the Zipper Factory in August of 2008.

Creamy Stevens' cocaine-covered money pasties!

Pretty clever, huh? These were from a BadAss! Whores show in Coney Island in June of 2008. The act, like the lady, is brilliant.
