Coco Lectric and some Bachelor Pad surprises.
The last issue of Bachelor Pad Magazine featured cover star and centerfold Coco Lectric, hailing from Austin, Texas. This week the lady herself visits Olympia and Seattle, performing and workshopping at Johansen Olympia Dance Center (August 6) and Miss Indigo Blue’s Academy of Burlesque in Seattle (August 7). Not only is Coco the Headmistress of the Austin Academy of Burlesque, she’s also one of the founding members of award-winning troupe The Jigglewatts, and has performed in festivals and burlesque showcases across the country including Cointreau’s Dita Von Teese: Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans back in 2010.
Coco’s sizzling moves and signature bombshell looks have earned her multiple titles, including Texas Performer of the Year 2010, Troupe of the Year (Jigglewatts Burlesque, 2010 & 2011), and 3rd place at Viva Las Vegas 2011. She’s also the assistant producer of the Texas Burlesque Festival and has been a regular in multiple pinup magazines. Coco does it all, and does it with style.

A while back, multi-talented photographer Kaylin Idora shared this drop dead gorgeous portrait of Coco in New Orleans with Burlesque Seattle Press, and it’s so fantastic it calls for reposting:
Speaking of Bachelor Pad Magazine, some may have noticed in Coco’s issue several Seattle performers were also featured. Inga Ingénue, Miss Kitty Baby, and The Shanghai Pearl (photographed by POC) also livened up mailboxes coast to coast.
