Victoria Stardust

Really excited to share this creative shoot I worked on with Victoria Vermouth. She is an extremely talented burlesque and drag king performer here in Ottawa. 

I really admire how she is always experimenting with different androgynous styles. I saw her Ziggy Stardust makeup look and I was super inspired to create some images that captured the feeling of this unique character.

David Bowie has always been a strong inspiration for me in many different ways and I am so excited how these photos turned out! I would recommend re-listening to this amazing classic song to get into the vibe.

Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly,

And the spiders from Mars. He played it left hand

But made it too far

Became the special man, then we were Ziggy’s band

Now Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo

Like some cat from Japan, he could lick ‘em by smiling

He could leave ‘em to hang

‘Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.

So where were the spiders, while the fly tried to break our balls

With just the beer light to guide us,

So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo

The kid was just crass, he was the nazz

With God given ass

He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind

Like a leper messiah

When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.
