CYBERGLAM by House of Allure: a live online burlesque event with some of my favorites!

Jada Love for House of Allure Presents CYBERGLAM by Suzanne Forbes Oct 25 2020I love to draw Jada Love!

Jada was one of the performers at a spectacular streaming event this summer, House of Allure. Produced by Dominus von Vexo, HoA has incredible production values and the CYBERGLAM show was a joy to watch.

Mama Mamba for House of Allure Presents CYBERGLAM by Suzanne Forbes Oct 25 2020Mama Mamba was new to me, and she knocked me out!

You can support Mamba all ways here, or visit/worship her Instagram, OF, and wishlist!

Lily Lustre for House of Allure Presents CYBERGLAM by Suzanne Forbes Oct 25 2020Lily Lustre is a longtime favorite.

I’ve been drawing Lily Lustre since 2018! Lily is an artist herself as well as an amazing performer. Here she demonstrates how sexy taking off a mask can be. Always a pleasure to see the Rose of English Roses, as I call her!

I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting an international population of drag and burlesque performers while I work safely at home.

 

The Vampire Baby Jesus portrait sitting, with Sadie Lune and Vampirina!

Sadie Lune and Vampirina with Hello Kitty by Suzanne Forbes Oct 24 2020Yeah, we knocked this one outta the park!

Team Supreme Sadie Lune, young Vampirina and I set up this zoom portrait sitting back in September, knowing Halloween is our time to shine!

Sadie Lune and Vampirina Pieta by Suzanne Forbes Oct 24 2020The Vampire Baby Jesus Pieta was Sadie’s idea.

Brilliant, right? Vampirina is holding one of my Alien Venus Flytrap plants, specially made for her a while back.

Sadie Lune and Vampirina 1st pose by Suzanne Forbes Oct 24 2020Vampirina was reading a “Goosebumps” book.

This was the first pose we did, and Vampirina requested that I make the background “old and scary”. There may be a couple more drawings from this sesh coming 🙂

I have collaborated with Sadie so many times; she is an unfailing muse even in the hardest days. You can learn about her work on her (NSFW) website. And here’s her Insta, and her twitter .
