The 50th annual striptease reunion and the 2007 Miss Exotic World competition are just days away. Exotic World was founded by Jennie Lee, a dancer known as "The Bazoom Girl." In 1991, at the age of 61, Jennie died of breast cancer. So it seems only appropriate that this year Exotic World has teamed up with the Keep A Breast Foundation to raise money for breast cancer prevention and treatment.
Throughout the weekend burlesque stars like Julie Atlas Muz, Michelle L'amour, Dirty Martini and Tempest Storm as well as celebrities like Margaret Cho will have their breasts cast by sculptors. Then each mold will be given to a different artist who will decorate the bust before it is exhibited and auctioned off. The first round of finished casts will debut at Florida's Casa Monica Hotel in October 2007. In June 2008, the entire collection will be displayed in Downtown Las Vegas, as part of the city's First Friday Exhibition Series. Both exhibitions will be open to the public, and all casts will be auctioned online at Keep A Breast.
