and more living statues in edinburgh

as shot by one of my regular UK contributors 'blackice', who seems to get around a fair bit. there's an interview with him in the online magazine here and a passing comment on his planned doll fetish feature article. he also mentioned a planned shoot with the Rubber Sister at the coming Skin Two Ball which i'm really trying to get over too..

is it just me?

i'm having a rather horrible time getting to sleep over the last week or so and then staying asleep. this sort of started with the fact that i've been getting some kind 'guidence' for lack of a more appropriate term to help me towards my goal of latex 27/7 which of course includes wearing latex to sleep in.

besides my basic flanel pj's i can't seem to sleep in anything else. the sensations of plain sheets against me or the cold or whatever is just too distracting? i really don't know.

i mean i have these lovely crimson satin sheets and i can't sleep on those either. i sort of sleep but then its not real deep sleep that i need. i was staying at a friends place when they were away and had to sleep on satin sheets and duvet and had the very same problem.

i would of simply loved to be able to wear my white zentai suit to sleep in on my red satin sheets but thats just not working either. same with the semi trans latex sheets i got for xmas. sort of a waste if i can't crack this step.

still i've been encouraged to step up and work my way through it and i am really trying but it does screw my work day feeling so out of it.

to help me on my way i'll be gettings something similiar too this latex gown... i'll see how it goes.


halloween is coming...

and it sooner than you think. a new product here spotted by a reader jordana is one way to out yourself as a living doll.

New step for Crocs: Clothes
Footwear firm will try to build on success of its clogs by launching new apparel line; shares climb.
August 27 2007: 2:31 PM EDT

NEW YORK ( -- Known for its wildly popular footwear, Crocs Inc. said it would take a step in a new direction by launching its own line of apparel.

Crocs (up $0.99 to $59.98, Charts) shares jumped 5 percent higher on the news but was trading up 1.5 percent in midday trade on the Nasdaq.

The Colorado-based company said it would produce clothing for men and children that incorporates its Croslite material, which is used in its popular line of clogs and sandals.

The company said it would launch the clothing line just before the holiday shopping season in October, and would later introduce a spring line of apparel.

rubbers finest on youtube

behind the scenes....

from words to pictures..

it seems that long form fetish fiction is drying up, those still writing are turning to computer software to make comic strips. one such writer and illustrator is Jay Petto and his collection of short stories are to be found at Jay Petto's Puppet Smut.

for his most recent work you'll need to head over to the dollfiction yahoo group. his new 'Puff Piece' now with added part two is here. you'll need to join the group to check it out.

wonder why people aren't using second life to make comics in a similiar way? anyone want a model? ;-)


stories at all?

we seem to be in another drought, so i open up comments to anyone who wants to post a link to their own favourite stories. feel free to add why u like them and if they hit a particular nerver or anything.

its sooo dry out there i may even start cobling something together myself.


time for the next stage

back from my business trip that really took out more of me than I thought it would, so just having a relaxing weekend now. one good thing is that my order of latex panties from germany's ebay has arrived as well my mofied latex body in a light doll-ish pink.

what had been really holding me back from wearing the body too now was all it has was a small zip at the upper back, so once on it was pretty involved to get out of to use the bathroom. no more and nor do i have any excuses to make it my next major staple of my wardrobe.

i'll start tommorrow and when home wear my latex slacks which will add to the body to make me like 80% coated in latex with not too much to go to reach my goal.

and i have been thinking of different things i could buy but they're all sort of between pratical variations on normal clothes - but in rubber and devious fetishy things that are for bedroom only....

oh well, when i win the lottery...


Friday, August 24, 2007

yes but could she walk in them?

or was that the reason she sold them on ebay?

WOW - they went for 570$ check out the link here for more photo's. and she has a blog in ebay too (which i didn't even know ebay did) - its here with other shots of her enormous shoe / boot collection.

thanks too Xu Xu for the link and no - i hadn't won the lottery, or have a rich patron and besides they'd be too big for me anyway. best i continue practicing with what i have even if they're humble ankle height ones.


meanwhile in Edinburgh....

goths with doll like skirts and stripe tights sell something called iron bru from buss stop posters and living statues line the golden mile, made from body paint, cloth and bronze zentai suits

weirdly dressed performers circulate with a multi breasted pig girl who you can feed sugar cubes too and burlesque model in dollish makeup, corset and skirt pose silently, moving only occasionally to pass out flyers for their event.

thanks to blackice for the snaps


sophie ellis bexter

known for her amazing mannequin pop video, here she is on the cover of a UK newspaper 'Metro' in a very doll like dress. apparently this was her outfit at her recent show at the 'V' festival.

wonder if she had a giant key on her back? anyone find more photo's of her? please post them in comments.

hmm... mannequins, doll like dress and what next for her..... i wonder if she reads this blog?

text to go with the images

thanks to the very kind Jean - F for somehow taking the images and getting text from the July 15th entry of vintage comics here:

The last several weeks has been an exercise round of geraldine for me
alone in the city. I had found of building and workmen who were
interested in earning a bonus and the revating was now finished I had written
the girls, telling that we were just about ready to open up shop, and
this morning I had just received a wireasking me to meet sally at the
airport as she was coming ahead alone.
The plane was already in and I saw sally the minute I enetered the
airport. I noticed many other heads turnn as she hurried towards me, and
this was double understandable for her face and figure alone would have
made her stand out in any crowd, but what drew the most attention was
the tiny wasit-lenght fur cape hanging loosely over her covering and
revealing at the same time. The fact that there were no arms beside the
She rushed right into my arms and it seemed most natural thing in
the world... Finally when we got our breath she told me about her trip
-- as only a girl can-- "Sylvia didn't want me to tey it alone but I
convinced her finally --It was most exaiting thing; everybody was trying
to helm me --one man tripped and fell over a litte boy --I think he was
staring at me --The pilots were awfully sweet. Four guys tried to date
me --the poor old guy sitting beside me fed me my dinner and he was so
nervous, he spilled coffee all down my front --the stewardess helped
to clean it up--" and so on till we arrived at her friends house were
she was going to stay.
I was more than delightfully surprised there. For it turned out tothat
Sally's freinds were all bondage enthuastics.
Manacled and gagged maid was combing the hostesses hair - she couldn't
do it herself because she was securetly bound to a straigh wooden
chair. Wooden strape were laced to the backs of her bare legs at the calf
and at the heel. And the feets were cruelly bend till the bottom leg
almost forced her feet to touch the boards. She noticed me as I was looking
at her feet and she said, "I know they're not the not xxx but my
husband want me to develope high arch and if have any better ideas, i'd be
glad to hear of then."
Turning to Sally i said, "honey, this young lady looks like our first
customer. We'll have to arrange an appointmentfor her."
"O-kay, Boss" Sally said, "now come along and meet some more
prospective customers."

The next morning Suzie and Silvia appeared in davatating costumes wich
they called "modelling mittens" Sylvia had her arms done again in the
sheath behind her back, and Suzie was wearing an abreviated
short-arm-jacket, with her arms doubled and laced up about inside the leather
sleeves. I told them they couldn't go out in public like that and they knew
we were going to see the place I had been working on, but Sylvia said,
"Silly going to be wearing capes till we get there so who's
going to see?" And i really didi get the idea a few moments later for Sally
entered the room looking lovely and wery mysterious clothed in a long
gray cape that actually reached to the floor. i soon had all three
sisters fixed up alike and more than one person turned to stare at the
three pretty girls as demurely attired. Sally laughed and said, "I wonder
what they'd think if they saw us without the capes."
We reached the building without accidnet and I enjoyed the girls
enthuaism over what I had done. The old building was in fine neighborhood
and was five stories high. The first floor was high-celinged asn was
primarily to be used as an show-room, and I also had in mind the thought
that it could be used to grat advantage for private parties and dances
wich were to be an important part of our set-up. there was also small
reception room and office on the first floorand then i took girls to the
second floor where there were fitting rooms and workrooms etc., etc.
But it was almost time for our first customer so the girls had to be
prepared as I got to do it.
We had told Gladys we'd find some appropiate foot-wear for her and
Sylvia first abowed off in polished aluminium foot-bracers which were
locked in place and did not have to be removed when bathing. Suzie wore
laced leather stockingswith the toes tied back with nylon cords. A she
explainend the the stockings were to be worn at night Then sally made her
entrance with beautiful toe-boots just to show Gladys how atactive the
foot & leg could really bend also to show the ease of wearing such

When the curtain parted this time, Sally stood there looking just about as charming and exiting an desirable as any one I had ever seen. her fascinating "armlesness" was enhanched by a tiny plack cape trimmed with white fur. Her tightly-laced venus jacket was of gleaming black kid-skin, and in stiking contrast, her maginifient hips were sheathed in brief, skin-tight shorts of white satin. she stood there with her long lovely legs straight and her feet maginfiously together. at first glance it seemed as tough she was wearing a pair of xxx chain-thing sandals with rdiculously high heels, but a closer examination showed that the sandals were in reality only one, with a single sole, and with single ankle hands with chained bot her slender ankles smoothly and tightly.
I said, "Sally, will you model them please."
She told, "Certainly, Johnie, if you'll help me down please."
I lifted her down from the little stage and then with short hops she moved toward our client so that he could examine her footwear more closely. Left another pair and I told hin that the were practically xxx desing which I had made in Germany. I had seen the originals in a small xxx shop and the shop-keeper told me a fascinating story of their history.
A Rich Baron had very young and very beautiful wife and he loved her more than anything or anyone in the world --but he also had a younger brother and his love for his brother was almost as great as her love for her wife. In a hunting accident, the younger brother was seriously wounded. The Baron ahd to ride for help and wife was told not to leave the young mans side. But she tired of waiting in the small xxx and walked out alone the road to meet her returning husband. Delirious, the younger brother rolled from his mat, opened the would and beld to death. As atonoment to Baron had the sandals made and when fitted securely about her feet asn anvill was bought in and the ankle bands were riveted permanently in place. until the day of her death, the baronness wore this bizarre badge of her guilt.
our client liked the story and he liked the single sandal even better. I had excused Sally with friently pat to the tummy as she hopped around the room. and I had home work to do so it was some time later when I went to excuse the girls for the day. I though Sally has gone to her room but Sylvia said she had.
as seen her lately as them i started a real search. I felt that several of the girls were jealous of the authority I had given Sally and xxx try to get even with her. I was so pleassed for I had finally found herin a small closet. Tightly masked and gruelly bound. Her legs had been doubled back and bound to a ring in a leather mask. I got her free as soon as I was able and i was pretty ssure about the whole mess. Sally was a expected that she could hardly get her legs straightned out and she coudn't keep bas a low sigh as I gently massaged her neck and shoulders.
sally wouldn-t say who was guilty, but I knew only one of the models had had her arms free and Sylvia had wouched the other two, because she had released them herself as I had some other persons not accused for and that was none-other that kid-sister Judy. I said "Sally there are going to be wery sorry young ladies around here tomorrow."

models just want to have fun

a pretty random shoot from the previous egl photo spread magazine. still it has some elements, the latex and pvc leggings a plenty, the mask and the furry plush styled leggins...


ballet boot training...

i was shown a gorgeous pair of ballet boots with double locks in second life and i've pretty well have had them on now for over a week. while they are not a perfect match to my own real pair (which only have room for one lock and are made from a black patent material), they did with a bit of a suggestion from someone- inspire me to dig out my own pair from the loft.

so i sat last night watching TV with them on to get used to the feel and shape of them.

for those who don't own a pair the first thing thats really different besides the vertical position of your foot is that the sole of your feet bends backwards so you toes point inwards. the arch becomes extremely curved and prononced and toes totally pointed down.

this is very very different position to heel training which is more of straight slope and back upturned toes.

i laced them on as tight as they would go and i felt i was adapting pretty well with them; over two hours and all fine. thinking back to my sl character and how well she walked in them i tried to stand up and bang!!! extreme charley horse on both of my calfs. the pain was intense and even more so that it takes what seems like a along time to get out of fully laced boots.

just glad they weren't knee highs as the pain would of lasted so much longer.

will i give up? no, not at all - just smaller steps and go much slower.


latex and now plushies???

actually this is an old scan i found from somewhere but its a great shot from some fashion show. just makes me think that it won't be long before plushies are walking down the catwalk, ugg boots turn into full furry legs and sunglasses will have wiskers attached.

its all PVC to the newspapers

i found this totally by accident the day it first appeared as i had been reading another article online and noticed the latex picture in a sidebar which i clicked on. the full article is here. thanks to everyone who sent me various links and images in.

what gets me is that latex always seems to be refered to as PVC by newspapers and non fetish style magazines, even when for example; the latex tights from Libidex were used in the major fashion shows in the spring. whats with that anyway?

well the suits are definately latex imho, there's no way that pvc would ever get that tight. looks like a thinner latex too as the arms are looser and hangs differently. there's some closeup portraits in the link to the original article above but with a harsh direct light that doesn't show of the latex at all.

seems all you need to do to get onto a UK newspaper is to be wearing a latex catsuit, or better, alot of women wearing latex catsuits and high heels. still there's a video to look forward too which is due out soon.


latex leggings cause debate with fashionistas

i know i am still obsessing a bit over latex leggings in fashion magazines. i guess in part that i don't own a pair and its an item thats crossing over into mainstream and seems to being accepted. its like a validation for me in some ways, and a more plausable excuse when i start wearing them in public.

so googling as i do i found a great forum called 'the fashion spot' with an entire thread dedicated to them with loads of comments, debates and images from fashion magazines as well of comparisons between different types. apparently the new Americal Apparel are the ones to go for as non-latex but almost latex ones.

the thing is that they do look very good with a range of different clothing types. so as much as the fetish angle appeals to me, its the look thats going to sell it to a range of women.

the thread is here if you want to read up on this new trend.

the place where i model in second life

is now a short film by Kim Dench. and i'm in it if you don't blink at the 55 second mark.

test a model, start with making her a doll.

this is part of one of a series of images which were a 'test' shoot by momentarylife posted on his livejournal blog here.

he explained:

The Doll Series kind of just happened by accident. Whenever I'm about to do a themed shoot, or begin a large photo project I like to take a few "Warm Up" shots. Especially with models I'm working with for the first time. I do this so the model loosens up in front of the camera and gets into the groove of understanding how I give instruction, and how I shoot

go check out the full image and the rest of the series.

a life in latex - an interview

with a new friend i met in second life and a long time reader of the blog. she's already done what i'm working towards, latexwise anyway... please post comments and email me directly for her contact details.

when did you first discover latex? Was it first hand or was it images/film?

Well.. like most the first time I saw latex was in a long ago...cant remember the name to be honest.. just some regular mainstream was really bad. After a short...maybe 2 or 3 mths.. went and sought it out at a store.. then again...maybe a year before I bought my first piece..

what was your first impression of it?

when I first saw it was WOW OMG that looks sooooo hot...but then again it helped that the girl had a near perfect body lol

was there a long gape between seeing/knowing about it and getting some?

After that year or so.. I bought a one-piece suit...but at the time ...latex was very very expensive...and little was really known about long-term effects...other then common developing a latex allergy ..

what was the first item of latex you owned?

A nice one piece body suit...and paid for it myself.. all my gear is black...I know not exciting but to me its the perfect color.

was it a sudden knowledge u wanted to wear it all the time or a slow growing?

At first it was more a ...ohhh that looks so wonderful...I really want it...then slowly I realized that I was wearing it more and more and for longer periods of time. I really do believe that your ready... and put that piece on that you’ve been hesitating to...surrender and become whole dear.

do you wear it to sleep in to make you truly 24/7 latex or more like 16-ish hrs a day.?

I’ve always got something on...24/7 .

how does it make you feel?

horny ....naughty ...

you said you wear latex all the time. how did u get to that point from the first few items?

It was a slow process...from maybe a few times a month to two or three times a week...then before I really knew it was daily and for longer and longer periods of time.

where did you get the latex? mail order from the UK?

A nice fetish shop in Toronto. but I believe at the time all latex was imported from the states or Europe

what's in your wardrobe? who are your favorite designers?

well everything I can get my greedy little hands on!!! I never go by designer...I go by ...animal instinct ..look...desire ...want.

how long exactly have you've been living in latex full time? what does it involve?

well...guess its now close to...*counts* ummm wow...ok about 14 yrs for the involvement. lots of showers...personally I take two a day...the amount of body fluid build up inside a latex suit can ruin your skin and the latex keeping both as clean as possible is a must.

so you have more than one catsuit, which you rotate between?

yes... I have 3... no two got ripped last move..

what does your wardrobe consist of?

mostly body suits...but also full bondage and smaller pieces...such as undergarments . Latex is a expensive thing to own ...depending on the quality and item...but now that its more widely accepted and seen ...things are changing to becoming more...accessible to everyone.

do you own or wear latex jeans or even a coat out?

yes...I'm never without latex on...sometimes more obvious.. mostlly not...from panties to tights...or a jacket ...gloves...depends on the weather...mood...

do you go to work in it or?

well I don’t work no?? but I do always have some on when in public...

what does your BF or husband think of your dedication to latex?

I'm single ...haven’t had relations in...3 or more years. not even a date.

are there any special health or skin considerations /regimes you use?

don't be tempted to use skin creams...just a nice simple shower and the suggested powder when putting on the pieces works wonders and a good shinning ....*winks* while wearing latex

so what’s a typical day wearing? do you put normal clothes on over it when inside or when going out?

mostly yes...but all my clothes from latex too normal is that it all blends into one...and depending on I’m feeling...decides what ill be wearing in public that day...if I go out .

the perfect robot suit

this came up in an email conversation with a friend who loved the beyonce robot outfit and i was very surprised that she'd never heard or seen the Thierry Mugler one.

here's two posed shots at the best resolution i have.

there's loads more floating around out there on the internet. i've seen a video clip as well as a series against a red background. anyone care to post them to me or links in comments?

there used to be a site called 'pink plastic' that had a good gallery but i think its long gone.

it also reminds me of a very old asfr story that involves a woman wanting to be welded into a robot suit and after a couple of years a deprogrammer is hired to rescue her...


fashion mag finds EGL

in two different sets of photo spreads. from the current issue of 125Magazine.

one set is actual fashion shots, the second is portraits shot in japan.


anyone out there?

my hits are growing at an amazing rates but all my regular emailers have disappeared. and yes i do reply to emails as i do chat in second life too. i don't really do yim much tho.

spam i get loads of however.


a video on corsetry

they covered alot of fetishes and some new ones...
