There really is nothing quite like a latex party. Fascinating fashionistas, (yes, some kinksters); a bunch of adults looking to be seen and make-a-scene with so many alternative wardrobe-lovers; a good time to show off homemade creations, bespoke items and all manner of chic chic. We love these get-togethers and try to get together to as many of them as possible, especially when the parties are close by (although, as you have seen in this blog we list the ones that might be far away, in the hope that maybe some of you can travel to get your fun freaky frockery on.) Nearer to home (although seeing as it is an invite-only party I can only reveal that the location was someplace close to Houston), we attended the Texas Latex Party for 2020 last weekend.
The Texas Latex Party was founded by Klaus and Helga, and they manage one of the most elegant latex events of the year. Having grown in its near three decades of existence to be recognized as quite the international gathering of wardrobe enthusiasts, the TLP is not to be believed. This year the theme of the party was “Under The Big Top,” and this circus concept inspired so many fabulous garments.
In the pictures here, you can see that I debuted both my 1980’s “Lisa Frank”-inspired rainbow leopard anatomical catsuits and hood (made with custom latex sheeting by Yummy Gummy) as my 50’s inspired look of pencil latex skirt, top. and hat. I channeled The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for this one, dressing for the TLP’s weekend “Coney Island carnivalesque.”
The Texas Latex Party allows for so much variety. Many attendees wore various outfits throughout the weekend (yours truly included as you see), some changing 3-4 times a day, depending on a nightly theme, and their mood.
I couldn’t have asked for a better time, amongst a more fun (and colorful) bunch of people. Thank you TLP, I am so looking forward to next year!
