We tried to install a software upgrade to the vBulletin software and it blew up.
Our IT staff are working with the vBulletin technical support to get IAR back online.
Please pass the word to everyone in all possible channels, such as RubberPal, etc. to let them know that this is just a technical problem. It may be several days before it is resolved. We have a major crash here…
This is excellent timing for our local fetish scene, since there are 2 fetish parties coming up later in May.

I received some very exciting latex photos from an old online friend, Spirit the Rubberdoll, who collaborated fairly recently with the noted South African fashion designer Suzann Heins on her runway show. Originally, the plan was to spice up the collection with leggings and gloves (a la DSquared2), but the designer became so fascinated with the material that she asked Spirit to make some full garments from her own specifications.
The results? Sexy yet sophisticated pieces which complemented the other styles and blended in rather effortlessly with the rest of the line– Spirit thinks perhaps this is why the clothes shown are not polished, but were made more matte with powder. You can see more of the show images at the South African shop, Subjects, where Spirit continues to create stunning creations for a new generation of latex lovers. Check out more of Spirit’s work for the shop here.
I visit Kaori’s Latex Dreams Etsy store frequently, because she seems to be updating it nearly every day with some new dress or headpiece, all of which are very affordable for the unique design and excellent craftsmanship involved.
3XL pointed me towards this Etsy Store for a London based designer–Ooh La Latex, whose designs beautiful separates, dresses and accessories, including some very detailed corsets. It’s a stunning range!
Other must visits, as spotted by 3XL: Trés Bonjour has added new designs to their range, including what has to be one of the cutest latex handbags ever produced! Take a look at the site to see what else you’ve missed.
Our friends at SavageWear in Berlin are very busy prepping for the upcoming Berlin Fetish Weekend, but apparently not too busy to update their range. New items are still being added to the latest range which currently includes a bit of latex Steampunk!
And finally, of all the latex and high fashion pairings recently, this outfit from Prada has to be my favorite so far. I adore the no-nonsense nerdy edge of their collections, and I especially like how even the latex takes on their practical and quirky edge. Brilliant!
Practically every fashion season one sees latex strutting on the catwalk, to add extra spice to the runway. Sometimes latex even makes it to the main street, such as earlier this year when Top Shop offered some one size fits all latex separates, or much earlier when Miss Selfridges sold Skin Two latexwear in the 90s.
Sadly, most of these excursions into the mainstream are a minor blip on the fetish radar, and latex quickly goes back into hiding in bedrooms and fetish clubs worldwide. This spring, however, there’s hope (or horror, depending on how you feel about your favorite material going mainstream)–Walmart, yes, Walmart has entered the latex fashion business!
Judging by the ad, they have a way to go, but of course this new line raises a whole slew of questions, such as Does the average underpaid Walmart employee really know anything at all about the care and feeding of this finicky material? Will its availability at Walmart draw fetishists out of their closets long enough to brave the greeters and the checkout lane? Is it available online? And finally, who on earth chose these styles, and who’s producing them?
Please leave a comment if you’ve run into Walmart’s new line yet. We’re dying to know how it’ll go over!
