That means it's the time of year when Lady Boys HQ hibernates for the winter! Soooooo are last blog of the year is a simple MERRY CHRISTMAS message from the Lady Boys! There may be 6 days till Christmas but it's never to early for a celebration, unless your a supermarket playing Christmas songs in early November! That is to early!

Angels in London....

Image
Well last week saw the return of the Victoria's Secret Catwalk Show return to London - taking place this Tuesday gone at the fabulous Earl's Court in London! The world famous femme fatale's known as the Victoria Secret Angels descended on London to show off both the svelte figures and the fashion statements that are covering them! Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo, Karlie Kloss, Elsa Hosk and Lindsay Ellingson were all there! 

All of the ladies looked undeniably gorgeous in their rather scimpy outfits and giant prop wings, but here's a pick of some of our favourite outfits from the catwalk!


First up we have the beautiful Candice Swanepoel (we're not sure how to pronounce it either), the golden angel (no pun intended) of the Victoria Secret girls. She rocked the catwalk donned in lavish golden wings and cream lingerie which we loved! But what pondering most intently is where we can get a pair of those …

Wintertide on the Equator....

Image
Oh English Winters how we love you!! Those freezing cold temperatures, that brief lump in throat few seconds between turning the ignition and the engine rumbling to life in the morning and that lovely frost - which never has any respect for the fact that you have to be in work in 20 minutes. English winters can be testing, but at least we endure them together and that includes the Lady Boys during their touring months! Luckily for the ladies however, they get to return to beautiful and most importantly warm home country of Thailand between tours, so this weeks blog is a rather envious look at some of the Thai winter scenery they will be experiencing when they return in December!

Temperatures in Bangkok at the time of writing this blog are 29 degrees and that's at 11pm - so it seems living near the equator is anything but straight down the middle (temperature wise that is)! The above picture was taken at the W Hotel in Bangkok - which promises all year round sun bathing within the…

That Christmas time of year is upon us once again and that means the winter circus season is well and truly upon us! Gandey World Class Productions is wrapping up for winter - not just with clothing but also with productions. The Lady Boys of Bangkok are reaching the end the end of their amazing Red Hot Kisses tour - having reach Sheffield this weekend their last stop before heading back to Bangkok. Gandey's Thrill Circus has amazed and dazzled audiences in both Merseyside and the West Midlands and is now wrapped up for the winter ready for more dates to be announced next year. Our productions may be in hibernation but our good friends in the circus world certainly aren't - they are all across the globe performing is a number of different shows! The above video of the amazing Duo Essence a contemporary take on the traditional Chinese Pole act that we helped put into La Clique during this years Edinburgh Fringe. I think we can all agree that they show some amazing acrobatic fe…

Winter is coming....and so is Christmas!

Image
You may have felt it in the air or read it on a calendar and regardless of whether it's your arms clinging to your shivering sides or your keen seasonal eye it's hard to deny that winter is well and truly upon us. As quick as a shimmering twirl of a Lady Boys number the temperature seems to have plummeted very obnoxiously to a much colder temperature. Followed by the inevitable outbreak of coats, scarf's and talk of the most Marmite-like of all holidays, IIIIITTTSS CHRRRIIISSTTTMMAAA- sshhh - quite Noddy, its not even December yet.

Despite Noddy Holders typically overzealous approach it is true, Christmas is just around the corner and with it we see the return of the much loved and sometimes loathed Christmas adverts. Those heart-warming adverts that never fail in conning us into believing that these multinational corporations actually care about our feelings - and not just our monies. So this here blog is a showcase of a couple of our favourite Christmas ads of the year.

Life in plastic, it's fantastic!

There's one name you may have heard flying around the news and social media airwaves over the past week - 'Renee Zellweger'. That's right everyone's favourite blundering journalist (with a rather questionable English accent) has made a comeback, of sorts, during a rare public appearance at ELLE's 21st annual Women in Hollywood Awards in LA and her name has been ringing in our ears ever since. You find yourself asking 'Well what warrants this surge in public interest? A new film role perhaps? Fashion range? Fragrance? BRIDGET JONES 3?' and the answer would be none of the above - it's her new...........face. That's right Renee has gone and got herself a new face, we here at the Lady Boys HQ are all about the glam but Renee's is certainly shocking mostly due to the stark contrast from her previous image. 

While you let that sink in lets go on a journey through the wonderful of celebrity changelings as they make or break not only their careers b…

Gandeys Circus is on the move.....

Now you may have heard through the grapevine that Gandey's Thrill Circus is back for the second time this year! After a hugely successful stint in Liverpool back in February, we're brushing off the Big Top and preparing to bring our magical all human take on modern day circus to the intu Merry Hill Shopping Centre, in the West Midlands this October half term!! With a whole new amazing line up of acts from all over the globe it's set to be a one of kind treat this October half term!

It's been rather a busy year for us here at Gandey World Class Productions HQ - what with Gandey's Thrill Circus, The Lady Boys of Bangkok and Butlins this past year there hasn't been much time to breath, and with more to come this winter it doesn't seem to be letting up! Which is certainly a good thing, proving undoubtedly that people still have a thirst for big top productions and cabaret!

A little heart-warming news next from the charitable arm of our organisation - the wonderf…

Autumnal Fashions....

You may be clinging desperately onto the last remnants of Summer but Autumn is most definitely upon us with a couple of Tuesdays ago marking the beginning of  Autumn Equinox. No more long warm nights, no more summer clothes and no more cheaper heating bills - the last one of which hurts us the most....BUT don't despair, Autumn has it's own merits - there's.....those....errrrm....beautiful colours and....you know....the....crunch of leaves under foot - but most importantly of all there's a chance to change up your fashion décor with a more wintry aesthetic. If  crunchy leaves and colder fashions have got you a least a little bit more excited for the winter don't you worry - The Lady Boys of Bangkok have got you covered with our breakdown of the hottest fashion trends circling the runway - the web and our wardrobes over the next few months.
Number one on the trend setters Autumn wish list is the rather asymmetrical solo earring; this rebel chic is all the rage with …
