It was about six years ago that I, Miss Ruby Mimosa, and Miss Indigo Blue met in Bump & Grind class at Miss Indigo Blue’s Academy of Burlesque. It was not just a few classes in that Indigo Blue reached out to Ruby and introduced her to Kitten La Rue of The Atomic Bombshells… and the rest is history.
Since their introduction, Ruby and Indigo have worked on many projects; one being the sales and distribution of her Twirly Girl pasties!
We were able to sit down and chat for a bit about her pastie company and how it all came to be. Enjoy this little snippet into creation of Twirly Girl LLC.
TBB: Can you tell me about your original design ideas behind your world traveling pasty company, Twirl Girl LLC?
IB: Well, my first experience with pasties was at Tease O Ramma in 2001. I took a pasty making class from Bonnie Dunn at Blue Angel Cabaret in New York. It was a great class, very basic fundamental construction with glue guns and felt and sequins. At that point I realized that actual construction of them wasn’t that complex, but the technology behind the tassel twirling had a lot of potential.
So, I ended up getting together with a friend of mine who was a quilter and a burning man gal. She and I, for fun really, mad a couple different designs. Our motivation was really, “We can make something awesome out of this. This could be really cool!” After we made a bunch of designs, we were like, “We could sell these…” “People want these.” And that’s how it began.
We just began evolving our designs over and over again based on how we could improve the design flaws that we found in pasties that were available on the market.
TBB: Well, they are so good, they are the best! I’ve always wanted to ask that question. Thank you for being available and willing to share. Is there anything else you want to add or share?
IB: Um, I really like the way pasties look on your boobs and now I am really excited to make you a custom pair or super pointies!
Thank you Indigo! We love you!!!
