Who can face yet another weekend of elbow jostling in the craze-fest that is Xmas shopping?
I’ve certainly had my fill of it, though I have to say it is slightly more tolerable when wearing rubbery garments concealed beneath long babushka style velvet coats… the other weekend I did venture into the Marks and Spencers foodhall in Brighton wearing my translucent governess blouse from Libidex. Oh how pervy I did feel as I stood next to the old grannies at the fruit counter sqeezing the avocados to test for ripeness…! The flipside of all this kinkiness however, was that I was wearing my thermal vest underneath. Don’t judge. It would’ve been distinctly nippy around the nips otherwise. This weekend though, I intend to do my last bits and bobs of shopping online.
For those kinksters who still have to fill the rubbery stockings of their fetish friends and family, there may still be time to order “The Rubber Bastards” 2012 calendar, available on the red bubble website at £15.40.
This calendar showcases some of the stunning, sometimes humorous, fetish photography of Lucas Messerer who is one of Sydney’s emerging new photographers . His work is a collection of photographs of personalities in the fetish scene in Australia and abroad. His style is often minimal, but always bold, with confident use of colour and strong contrast in lighting. Through his work, Lucas seeks to gain access to the private space of his subjects, all of whom are active in their exploration of the fetish lifestyle.
I’ve certainly got it on my kinkmas list.

Laser cut latex fashion has been a big thing this year, both for the more established latex designers as well as the DIY latex enthusiasts out there. The latest craze on the laser cut fashion front-line is these amazing Latex Fishnet Stockings from Ego Assassin.
I asked James from Ego Assassin, how they came up with this idea “We got the idea to make latex fishnets because over the years many of our customers have asked us if it was possible to make such a thing. We have always had to say no because we couldn’t think of a way to cut a fine and consistent mesh pattern into latex, and still maintain any semblance of durability. I know that many latex designers — ourselves included — have attempted to solve this problem with a variety of appliqué-based approaches, but the final product was always rather bulky and the look was never quite right.”
He continues “When Kink Engineering announced they would be offering laser-cutting services to the latex industry, one of our first thoughts was that it could be used to finally make a true fishnet latex stocking. We experimented with various laser settings, hole shapes, and mesh densities, until we arrived at a pattern that worked.”
So how the stockings are produced? James explains “The stockings are made by laying a sheet of latex into the laser machine, and cutting the whole stocking in one piece, including thousands of tiny rounded slashes. The piece is then taken out of the machine, the off-cuts are removed, and it is thoroughly cleaned. The stockings are then assembled with one seam up the back and reinforcement around the edges. The end result is a sheer, lightweight, and durable latex fishnet stocking that can be worn on its own, or shined up and paired any latex outfit.”
Check out this video from Ego Assassin on how easy it is to put on the stockings:
Pretty cool, right? The stocking are actually leg sleeves witch is a really good thing, as your tiny toes won’t get stuck in the stockings mesh and is simply much more comfortable to wear. I also believe they would also look fantastic on top of regular pair of latex stockings.
I’m sure that we have just scratched the surface of what is possible with laser cut latex, and we can expect much more on this front in the years to come!
What is FetMart? FetMart is a “kink auction and adult marketplace” where you can buy and sell items that you wouldn’t normally sell easily on sites like eBay and others auction sites. Plus, you know that you’re buying and you’re selling to people who have the same mindset as you have, which can only offer you a sense of confidence.
The site is relatively easy to use if you’re familiar with auction sites, as it follows the same set of rules – only that on FetMart, kink and adult things are at home!
What’s great about this site is that you can list an item for free –and you only need to pay a fee if the item sales!
You can find more information about how the site goes in its help section that’s quite comprehensive and teaches you all the basics of the site – a great place for beginner auctioneers and seasoned ones at the same time.
Check out FetMart, no matter if you want to sell some of your old latex outfits that you don’t need or wear anymore, as well as if you want to get your hands on something special that you couldn’t find anywhere else!
Just saw the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011 and was surprised to see a little latex on the catwalk again this year. I was really impressed by the creativity of some of the outfits, especially the “Super Angels” and the “Aquatic Angels” was a real treat. Great inspiration for those of you who need some new latex outfits for next years major fetish balls.
Do anybody know who made the two latex super hero costumes in the show, shown above here?
