Welcome #PortfolioDay

#PortfolioDay was set-up to celebrate artists in a truly unique way, and it has come round once again, happening this second Tuesday of the New Year. Way back at the end of summer 2018, Audrey Gonzalez, who began this particular online celebration, agreed to move her Portfolio Day to every 2nd Tuesday of every three months, starting October of that year. Today January 12th, 2021, is the very first Portfolio Day of this year

WW84 Couture

Anticipating the usual PVC, latex, and the classic semi-skirt, sleeveless chest-plate, and boots, cosplayers and fans of the newly released Wonder Woman 1984, might be in for a surprise when it comes to the movie’s costumes. Yes, the superhero/bad guy duds are in abundance, but one could argue that costume designer Lindy Hemming brings even …

World of WearableArt “Up Close” Opens

Assessing what we learn from the pandemic, there are sure to be wholly new designs across the art world that surface. Certainly, latex fashions, cosplay, leather wardrobes, fetish gear will survive the current hiccup in our history in their way. Once again, we thank the World of WearableArt for doing their unique and very best championing this survival.

Latex: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Really, any time is a good time for wearing, buying, ‘gifting’ latex (yes, it’s our job to say this, but we really do feel this way). With the mainstream coming to our side more and more each year, popular videos featuring every style imaginable, and not just latex, and the proliferation of designers and latex websites (and as we always say, competition just makes us all the better in the end) latex is here for all to enjoy…and give for the holidays ahead.

‘In The Morning’ (And in the flesh) With Jennifer Lopez

J.Lo’s most arresting couture moments. From opening the century in an iconic, open sea-green Versace gown to the naked sparkly dress she wore at the 17th Annual CFDA Awards to stepping out in a sheer Zuhair Murad Couture jumpsuit at the 7th Annual Latin Grammy’s to sporting Versace again, all silvery beaded gown with a matching headdress for last year’s Met Gala, there is no mistaking the sartorial choices this woman makes.

Megan Thee Stallion Shares Her “Body” With Us

Music, latex, naughty lyrics…just what is 2020 coming to? And how can we get more of it?! If you have yet to catch it, Megan Thee Stallion’s “Body” video (see it here) dropped last week with her new album “Good News.” It’s a fantastically dirty call to female body image and empowerment, featuring some fantastic costuming, stunning styles, lots of booty, and an array of cameos.

Gothic Image Relaunch 2020

Andy has been on the scene, publishing in magazines like “Skin Two,” attending the German Fetish Ball, Barbican, and the primo fetish/alt. shopping event Le Boutique Bazaar, to name just a few places he set his camera and talents over the years.

Vijat Mohindra, Miley Cyrus and A Good Cause

Born in Ohio, and raised in Chicago, Vijat moved to L.A. at the age of eighteen and lives there presently capturing celebrities. A former assistant of David La Chapelle, Vijat has placed his work in Paper magazine, Gay Times, Attitude, and Plastik. He mines what has been called an anti-vérité style of photography.

Guccifest Taps top stars for “Ouverture of Something that Never Ended”

Not that either Harry Styles or Billie Eilish are particularly known for their latex styling, but they are for modern music hits and couture all their own. And it seems that Gucci is recognizing both for their sartorial intelligence, more than just outfitting the singers as they have for quite some time. The designer has …

Oh No, Noah Cyrus!

Stepping out to the store in a pair of thigh-high leather boots or a latex mini (guy or gal) might still engender a stare or two. And as Noah Cyrus learned this week, showing lots of oneself, even during a modern music award show, is just too much for some.

2020 Halloween costumes choices

While people debate the “Are You?” “Are You Not?” question of attending socially-distanced parties, or letting their kids trick-or-treat, we found a bunch of websites (see here, and here) showcasing trending costumes, as well as we’ll throw our point hat into the ring to predict 2020 Halloween costume choices.
