Dorothy Oz by WakenTheDead Dorothy Oz by WakenTheDead
Some place where there isn't any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It's not a place you can get to by a boat or a train. It's far, far away — behind the moon — beyond the rain —
Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high, There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby. Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue, And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.

Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then— oh, why can't I?

- Dorothy, Wizard of Oz.

This is Teniah Twisted, Edinburgh based burlesque performer. Her recent set for club Teaze involved a Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz outfit. We had a great time recreating Dorothy, on a really dull, very soggy Scottish autumn day. Hopefully the magic of the photos show that we weren't in Scotland, we were somewhere over the rainbow (turn left at Glasgow, follow route for Over the Rainbow!) :)

Model: Teniah Twisted and Toto

I really love the back drop, not sure about the model, she seems a bit "over dark" I mean i get that you want dark and sexy in the picture but she just seems more murdery than naughty sexy.

Do you have one of her with a coy smile ? - a bit more hi stranger im totally innocent kind of smile with a devilish twinkle.

Burlesque is all about the tease.

Ill shut up now. great photo - but that chick has murder eyes and angry blondes scare me.

In the books, Dorothy's slippers were silver, I would love it even more if she had silver slippers.

Once again you have done it and produced a beautiful picture that has very appealing colors but is subtle enought it doesn't overwhelm the pic
