The vivacious Ricky Hard of the CBR stopped by for a little chat.


Tell me about how you originally got into your craft, Ricky.
I got into nipple tassels when I joined the fabulous group of women known as "The Cheesecake Burlesque Revue." We all started as enthusiastic amateurs with a thirst for learning and showmanship. Somehow I found a niche within our group for nipple tassels and over years of experimentation, I've created the formula to a guaranteed hassle free spinning tassel. It's a top secret combination of 5 Rules that make our tassels spin just as good or better than the best while keeping the cost to the consumer to a minimum and maintaining top quality. Ever since those first few pairs, I've become an addict, obsessed with the next style and innovations.

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
Cuddle with my partner on the couch with my cat Eric and my dog Heston while eating pizza, drinking red wine and watching a movie.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
Keeping up with the demand. We sell our kits at our shows and online and have received nothing but awesome response. I love being busy and providing people with fun and sexy costume bits. It makes me happy and I wouldn't have it any other way!

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
I would love to get "Candy Girl" nipple tassels! They're one of my favourites and one of our top sellers. They're so much fun that I could never say no!

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
An actress. a fashion designer, an inventor, Prime Minister, writer, artist, entrepreneur of some kind...

This was all at one age - and it still applies (except for Prime Minister- BORING!)

What other shops or artists out there do you love?
Boring Sidney on Etsy (I love HATS!)

Glitter! www.litcosmetics.com

What does your future hold?
As long as I keep pushing and work smart - hopefully a whole friggin' lot!
