Make-up and hair was done by the French fetish diva Louva, the set dresser was no other than Siba Kladic, and all of the 200+ items, was shot in just two days, by Danish photographer Phillip Marco Vallentin, who flew to the Netherlands especially for this exciting job.

Saturday evening I returned to the Matrix club for the main event, the German Fetish Ball. Already loads of people has arrived and the place was filling up quickly.
As the previous years, different music was played in each of the Matrix’s separate dance floors. There was the gothic/80’ties dance floor, Electro House & Pop dance floor and the cool jazz lounge, just as last year. New this year where the Torture Garden dance floor, with the DJs and performers from London, and a latin floor, with palms trees and a large swimmingpool!
A hour before the show started, I went backstage to get ready for the fashion show. Back stage was really packed and there was not much room. Some people was having their last minute make-up done, others was struggling getting into their assigned latex creations and some was ready to go.
For the NoPainNoGain show I was modeling a nice black latex suit with a brown shirt with white collar/french cuff, really nicely done! Ken (NoPainNoGain), Anna Phobia, Marcus, Susann, Kittie Klaw, Kumi and Ms Von Livid was also getting ready.
The lovely Rubberella was mistress of ceremony and did a great job presenting the different shows and performances. Beside NoPainNoGain there where fashion shows by Breathless, Pretty Pervy, Torture Garden Clothing, Fetish Universe and TO.m.TO Berlin. There was preformances by Rubberella, Kittie Klaw and Rubber Sisters.
Pretty Pervy‘s line up of amazing inflatable suits took the first price for being the most bizarre and fun! It’s not everyday you see inflatable pigs performing a bizarre dance on stage. Torture Garden Clothing showed some items from their upcoming new collection, really cool!
Finally the time arrived for our show. I was a little nevus as I walked in together with Kumi and Anna in the first section, but everything worked out nicely. After the show we had a small party back stage, celebrating a successful show. Everyone was happy.
The rest of the night was a mix of dancing, drinking and have fun. For me the weekend ended around five o’clock in the morning, when I took a taxi back to my hotel. Another fetish weekend in Berlin was over… But there is many more to come!
