Whether you’re a current collector of comics, past collector of those pages of artful design or have been hooked by the slew of over the top movies and many series out giving life to great characters across the boards of comic/sci-fi/fantasy…the show ‘Geek-to-Chic’ presented by the Dollface Dames was an event to behold and remember.
The evening had interpretations by the sensuous ladies of geekdom by Vixen DeVille (as Lara Croft), Lola Boutée (the Comedic Dominatrix as Betty from Archie Comics), Kitty Kat DeMille (the Brainy Ballerina as Catwoman), Mona Bella (the Wild Child as Wonder Woman), Dixie Mae Rebel (the Dixieland Delight as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones), Eva Eden (the Latina Princess as Poison Ivy), Holiday Sinn (as Harley Quinn) and Roxy Knight (the Coy Coquette as Black Widow), along with guest performances by Olivia Bellafontaine (as Ava Lord from Sin City) and Jessabelle Thunder (as Storm from X-Men).
Even if you missed the night’s show, the Dames perform weekly (below is an insert from their website):

The evening wrapped with a chance to meet and mingle with the ladies in the show at the bar. Photos were taken, stories were told and a few proposals I’m sure were kindly and graciously declined. The winner of the costume contest came down to attendees dressed as Wonder Woman (DC), the White Queen (X-men) and Rorschach (The Watchman). The red, white and blue won out, with WW taking the top prize, but Rorschach didn’t do too bad receiving a consolatory hug from one of the Dames. Like I said……a night to remember.
