Dragon Lady: Marianne Cheesecake

A few months ago I invited burlesque performer Marianne Cheesecake over to the studio to shoot some images for her Anna May Wong tribute costume. 



Some of you may have already heard of the beautiful Anna May Wong. She was the first Chinese-American movie star, hitting the screens in the 1920s. Wong worked with the top directors and actors of the time, from Douglas Fairbanks to Marlene Dietrich. 

Marianne's act is a beautiful tribute to Wong, with one of the most detailed costumes I have ever seen. Playing on the stereotype of the "Dragon Lady", Marianne plays Wong as a lifesize dragon. The stunning headdress and lingerie was made by Adora Belle and costume by Lenka Padysakova!
