BoundCon Moved Again

Via our friends at The Fetishistas website, we learned this week that Munich’s huge and yearly BoundCon has now been moved from May 2021 to June…2022.

Lil Nas X Courts Controversey With Wigs and Satan

Lil Nas X has teased “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” online for months. It even appeared in a LogiTech Super Bowl ad this year and song’s title is a reference to the Oscar-winning gay romance Call Me By Your Name. Lil Naz X, who came out last year on the last day of Pride month, is undoubtedly declaring his pride over his sexuality in the many scenes here, from lap-dancing with the king of the underworld, to wearing haute couture, dreadlocks and some of the most scrumptious wigs a male rapper has dared wear yet in a video.

Oh Madonna Say It isn’t so…photoshopped?

Adopting pretty much the same pose, in precisely the same outfit, Goldie realized The Material Girl had simply taken Goldie’s picture and pasted her head over Goldie’s!

Still, the best/weirdest/funniest thing to ever happen to me.’

RuPaul’s Queens Celebrate Their New Home dressed In Cosplay

Sports Illustrated & Lenya Bloom Make History

As to be expected, we love it when some latex outfit, or a cool piece of wardrobe makes a cultural statement. Whether being introduced in a new haute couture collection or worn on some performer’s body, almost daily we see, read and are delighted by some news about another alternative or sexy outfit sparking the zeitgeist worn by one of our brightest, best and most popular.

2021 GRammy’s Couture

The NCOSE said that Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s performance of “WAP” at the Grammy’s “….could have been cut from a hardcore pornography film” and also “…contributed to the sexual exploitation of women by glamorizing prostitution and stripping.” Maybe they didn’t like the huge stiletto on stage or the bed, or what Cardi and Mega Thee Stallion did on that bed.

Welcome To The House Of Gucci

Chloe x Halle’s “Ungodly Hour” is unGodly hot

Luscious liquid latex are the three words that first come to mind when viewing Chloe x Halle’s just dropped “Ungodly Hour” video. The sister singing sensation that just revealed separate Instagram portals is still very much together in this clip, revealing a whole bunch of sleek couture, starting off what seems to be about seven costume changes wearing gorgeous latex wardrobe.

Social Distancing Won’t Stop Alternative Couture Stepping Out…& Posting

Even during these social distancing days, celebrities are flashing latex dresses, sky-high heels, PVC couture, or leather. It’s not that we catch every post or video, but here’s some of what flittered by our notice last week to satiate our sartorial splendor.

We can always expect wild latex couture, naughty leather and lace combos and all manner of alternative accessorizing from our divas.

The 2nd digital Couture Week

But this front-row celebrity array did not compare to the highlight of the shows (or at least what the blog-sphere was on about this week).

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 …
