Hello Boils and Ghouls,

I am super excited to share my newest edit from the fabulous Dangerously Dolly!

Photo: Dangerously Dolly MUAH: BillieJo

If you are or will be in Atlanta, or in a city that she is traveling to: BOOK HER! Seriously, I have been drooling over her work for a while, and she is super amazing and very friendly while maintaining professionalism! Also any model/photographer looking to hire a great MUA, don't look any further than BillieJo, her work is fantastic and so is her kindness and professionalism.

Hope you enjoy the picture, have another on the way!

Until then;

Stay Spooktacular,
Vera Voodoo.


Hey Hob Gobs,

I just got back from Texas! Last night was the Broads and Panties presents: Metal UNCHAINED show! I have been looking forward to this show for a while! Well, seeing how I LOVE the headliners a ridiculous amount I'm a little Biased. I felt completely honored to be a part of it, and that one of those ladies recommended me for the show! <3 It is always good seeing friends! I was so excited that I would get to see Kira again.. I never make it out to L.A, so I don't see her very often. I was so happy to be a part of this show, to work with such amazing people and perform for an awesome crowd! I got one of the best responses that I have ever had from a crowd, fans, and even my friends that attended!

Unfortunately, the day before the show I got dehydrated because my sleep schedule was off and I overslept... woke up at 3 in the morning to discover that I was pretty sure that I had a kidney infection. I went to the doctor and sure enough: kidney infection! So yesterday I had to run some last minute errands... with a fever from the infection, in 100+ degree weather, in an un air conditioned car. My senses were off and I drove very casually like a crazy lady... probably a combination between little food, meds, fever and the heat.. but I was so out of it. Got pulled over and yelled at by a husband was on the phone in the seat and heard the colorful words.. so awesome. It could have been the tearful anxiety driven reaction to the cop screaming at me, or the nipple slip that may have happened (it was a low cut happens... seat belts, you know?).. but even after the crazy driving and such (probably could of had 5 tickets worth) he let me go. Scott free. Needless to say I sat there for a moment, completely perplexed.

Went home, finished packing, left for Texas early, got caught in horrible construction sites leaving someone rear ending a horse trailer and stopped traffic. We were at a standstill twice in our trip. We still made it to the show on time. Had plenty of time to settle everything. It was such an awesome, relaxed, and drama free show. I really had an amazing time. Although I was super sick, and my kidneys were screaming by the time my first number came up, I had so much fun! I danced to Motorhead and had such a great reaction! The rest of the show was awesome, I enjoyed every performer thoroughly, onstage and off(I won't lie, backstage burlesque antics are the BEST!) and was so happy to see them perform! Those are some amazing ladies! After the show we made rounds, mingled. I got to meet some Facebook friends and fans, which is something I always enjoy!

I just wanted to thank everyone who made this show happen, and for having me as a part of the show! And of course a BIG thank you for everyone who came out to support us, you were an awesome crowd! <3

Atlanta Trip

So, I just got back from a trip to Atlanta, Georgia. My friends Dynamite Dames and JJ DeVour had planned a road trip there for shoots and when some plans of theirs changed, they invited me the day before they were going to leave!

It was such a great opportunity, so great I couldn't refuse! JJ drove me to Texas to pick up Ms Dynamite Dames herself and then we headed to Alabama. We stopped at Sun Records and Graceland on the way! It was so fun! We ended up in Alabama at Cherry Dame's house well into the evening, showered and then passed out.

Woke up the next morning and shot with Dynamite Dames, Cherry Dame as MUAH, and JJ DeVour as my counterpart for some naughty photos! After the shoot we packed up and drove the last bit to out hotel in Atlanta. There was a Rockabilly show that night, so all of us went out and had a blast, but we didn't get back until muuuuch too late for the plans we had the next day! Unfortunately our hotel room was RIGHT above the dance club that was open until 2-3am so sleep was futile. It was so loud that you didn't miss a beat... and that our things rattled on the nightstand. :-/

JJ and I woke up early the next day to Billie Jo Garcia coming to our hotel to do our MUAH for our shoots with Dangerously Dolly! Figured out wardrobe and broke half of my nails before the shoot but I was so stoked. I really admired Ms Dolly before, but after meeting her, and working with her I absolutely adore her! Both her and Billie were fabulous! We shot in one of the coolest warehouses I have seen! I LOVE shooting at unique locations, and really would like to do that more!

Dynamite Dames and Cherry Dame shot their Atlanta bookings and JJ and I explored the stores in the area! We got some rad stuff and then met up with the ladies, and then had dinner before we left town. One veggie burger later we were on the road back to Texas.

It was a long grueling trip back, but we made it to Fort Worth, took a breather and then JJ and I headed back to Oklahoma. We met up with our mopey boys and hung out with them before Eddie and I drove back home late at night. It was a whirlwind trip, but it was an amazing experience.. and I thank everyone involved! So much!

We are already planning to return early 2011 and I would love to book some more shoots, and maybe a show while we'll be there!

Stay Spooktacular Boils and Ghouls!
