The time was a little past 10 o’clock when I arrived at the Hammersmith Palais, ready for some serious latex pimping! I was wearing my shiny new “Latex Pimp” costume; black jacket, white shirt, black pants, pimp hat with huge white plume feather, silver cross necklace, two finger “dollar sign” ring, diamond earring and pimp cane. After a short visit to the cloakroom, I inspected the venue.
There was a huge ball room with stage, dance floor and three bars. There was multiple staircases there lead up to a open 1.st floor facing the main ballroom, with more bars, chairs and couches. The theme of this Rubber Ball was “Medical Fantasy” So there was some decorations with red cross marks, and scenes with clinic furniture, x-ray images, syringes and much, much more. There was some performers there was playing in some of the decorations. A little needle torture there and some tube bondage over there. Very nice!
The Ball was opened with a live performance on the stage. Followed up you the Skin Two Fashion Show 2004 with Torture Garden Clothing, Puimond Corsets, Absolute Danny, Bodycult, Pressure Corsets, SintheteX, Fräulein Ehrhardt, Starfire, HW Designs and Libidex. Most of the designers had a little performance or play in their shows. Among the models on stage was: Kumi, Sway, Bianca and Darenzia.
It was a really a great show, but I would have liked it to be a little longer. The highlights for me where Pressure Corsets and Fräulein Ehrhardt. Katja Ehrhardt’s thin transparent underwear was very sweet, sexy and delicate! Pressure Corsets had some outstanding gowns with huge blowup’s attached to them, it really looked like something out of this world! Nice eye candy!
After the fashion show I spend some time walking around the room saying hi to friends, had a few beers and did a little dancing. I took some photos of the happy people I ran into on my way. I’ll update my gallery with all the photos in the next couple of days. There are around 200, so please be patience. Until then, try to search for “Rubber Ball” on GettyImages.
The last performer on stage was LucyFire. After 2 o’clock over half of the crowd was gone. Then the clock was 3 o’clock and the Ball ended. Some of the guests went to the official after party at ClubRUB, but I was to tired. All there was left to do for me was to say goodbye to everybody and go home and get some sleep.
I hope to see all of you again next year!
