I am delighted to announce that my bizarre rubber creation “The Maw”, which won 2nd place in the “open” category at the International World of Wearable Art competition last September, is now on display at the WOW Museum in Nelson, NZ. It is strange to see it from the outside (I’m usually inside), and the compact configuration in which they present it. But if you should find yourself in the south island of New Zealand, do look it up.
I’m be at DomCon Los Angeles May 10-13. Be sure to visit my booth (#130), and on Thursday (May 10) I’ll present a lecture entitled “Power & Clothing”. Visit DomConLA for more information.
An Interview with Katharine Gates, Author of “Deviant Desires: A Tour of the Erotic Edge”
The New Book Includes The Baroness and Balloons
A highly-illustrated (including a balloon party photo from my Fetish Retinue) article based on an interview with author Katharine Gates about some of the kinks discussed in her new book, Deviant Desires: A Tour of the Erotic Edge, available now.
“Balloons combine the touchy-feely and smelly power of latex with the excitement of growth and the fear of explosions. Balloon fans may enjoy watching their partners orally inflate them, or they may want to pop the balloons in a variety of ways using other core kinks such as cigarettes or feet. Partner play can involve bouncing on large balloons.”
“People with Purpose”: a Do-Good, Shopping, and Social Event
Wednesday, August 30, 6:00-8:00 PM
My friend Purely Patricia has gathered together a talented band of creative New Yorkers (myself included) and curated and styled for auction seven mannequins to showcase both us and our works. Join me and other creative “People with Purpose”, sip champagne, and shop!
I want a huge swath of latex lovers to create a sensation and help raise money for Housing Works, while drinking champagne and shopping! You can place your final bids (online bidding opens August 17th here) on this exquisite collection of eclectic designer goods while rubbing elbows with the artists.
“Housing Works is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Our mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain our efforts.”

She also bought a pair of our Baroness amethyst pedal pushers which she’s wearing here to put on her make-up.

Anne Hathaway will appear next year wearing our heavy rubber black corset and skirt in “Ocean’s Eight”, an all-woman sequel/spinoff-of the popular heist trilogy, to be released next June. In this version, Danny Ocean’s sister Debbie attempts to pull off an impossible heist at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala.

My latex was featured in a spread of the book, and in prints that were on auction at the Williamsburg event.
