Burlesque performers sometimes make for the best models, bringing a mix of showmanship, style and posture to the lens as well as they do for the stage. Local burlesque star Tomahawk Tassels - a lovely mix of Irish and Native American heritage - stars in a new steampunk, time travel-themed editorial highlighting the work of local neo-Victorian line Blasphemina's Closet, styled by Tomahawk herself.
