The Olympics bring out the top athletes in the world for a show of intense competition and sporting camaraderie. In Seattle this past weekend, the Seattle Burlesque Olympics 2012 had a similar effect ... albeit with far less clothing and more nipple tassels. Featuring some of the best burlesque performers this region has to offer, it was a no-brainer to send out a Seattle Weekly photog to capture the action.

Which is just what we did. If you happened to miss the event, luckily we've got you covered.

Described as, "a night of campy competition as Seattle Burlesquers tease and twirl to the finish line for the Ultimate Grand Supreme Medals and Rhinestone Trophies," the Seattle Burlesque Olympics 2012 didn't fail to deliver. From the shimmies of Ernie Von Schmaltz, Jamie Von Stratton and Flirty Sanchez, to the shakes of EmpeROAR Fabulous, June Cleavage and Pidgeon Von Tramp, the Seattle Burlesque Olympics had a little something for everyone ... as long as that someone enjoys the time-honored tradition of burlesque.

Here's a peek at how it all went down. Be sure to visit our full slideshow for even more awesome snapshots by Victoria Holt.
