“Wilhelmusvlug aka run_paint_run [aka Pim] is an Amsterdam-based artist with a love for fetish, oil and canvas and underground alternative lifetyles. It was inevitable that these passions would come together. The result is a striking new series of fetish portraits in oil paint.”
run_paint_run’s art was on display at the 2008 Skin Two Rubber Ball, where I had the opportunity to meet the artist when I was introduced by fellow Amsterdam-based fetishist Mistress Erika. The artist himself struck me as very down to earth and modest in spite of his tremendous abilities. The art on display were near-photorealistic oil paintings of local fetishists, such as the painting on the right.
According to the artist’s MySpace profile, he is also shooting videos now for Wasteland. I can only assume that like the rest of his work, the results will be a superb new addition to the fetish community.
Both costumes are comprised of a pair of double skin inflatable latex enclosure suit with integrated inflated hands, feet, tail, head and other special features. The reason for using this design is that, unlike a single air chamber suit, the multiple individual air chambers in this suit form the desired body shape in virtually any position and can be individually adjusted for tweaking proportions.
It’s easy to see the experience and craftsmanship needed to create suits like these, and Pretty Pervy lacks neither. With a long record of creating mind blowing inflatable latex creations, they are untouchable when it comes to inflatable latex costumes.
Both the inflated latex frog & skunk suits were created to a customer’s own unique designn and Pretty Pervy are unable to reproduce the suits for anybody else… But if you got a idea for a special inflatable latex costume, Pretty Pervy are the right people for the job!
“The red and black walls of Demask, a high-end fetish wear boutique on Orchard Street, are lined with racks of leather straps, latex jocks, corsets, bodysuits, butcher aprons and other buckles, prongs, chains and kinky accessories.
But according to the Antoinette, the store’s manager, who can be found most days and evenings at the counter, Demask is experiencing the economic slump in its own peculiar way.
“We do sell little things—like toys, masks and small accessories—and we get a lot of foot traffic, but people just aren’t buying our primary wares: the clothing,” says Antoinette, who wishes to be known by her first name only. The store, long a mainstay in the fetish community, has experienced such a sales drop that, according to Antoinette, it’s not even breaking even.”
