The Twin Peaks Burlesque Show Will Make Your Fantasies And Nightmares Come True (NSFW)

If you love David Lynch's creepy-quirky character, Log Lady, as much as you love the vaudevillian beauty of burlesque, do we have a performance for you. It's called the "Miss Twin Peaks Beauty Pageant," and it's the perfect mix of eye patches, coffee drinking and pasties straight from Lodge.

The event made in television heaven was held at New York City's Joe's Pub (temporarily re-dubbed "The Road House") last week, featuring versions of Leland Palmer, Nadine Hurley, Margaret Lanterman, Norma Jennings, Windom Earle and many others. The winner of the faux pageant was -- of course! -- a Log Lady impersonator by the name of Amelia Bareparts. Because who didn't love that lovably crazy clairvoyant who helped Dale Cooper communicate with a supernatural realm?
