The Texas Latex Party!

The Baroness Latex at TLP

The Texas Latex Party (TLP) is one of my favorite American dress events. Each year we create custom outfits for attendees, many of whom have won awards for best dressed latex female, male, or couple. While designers are exempt from these titles, this year I felt it was my turn. So I devised a plan.

Thursday night I couldn’t resist the play on words “Big Top” (Dominatrix/circus tent), so basic black with ponies was the solution. The next day, for my latex lecture, I introduced color with some tastefully placed polka dots.

For Friday night’s party we started to roll out the color: pink and blue with contrasting polka dots and stripes. Hooped and horsehair skirts provided dimensions and movement not usually associated with latex. And we topped it off with tiny clown hats and makeup. Such fun outfits to wear and dance in!

The  Carnival theme thrilled me! I love color and costumes! My brain danced with visions and kaleidoscopes of colours! For maximum impact, I contacted long-time client Don and his lady friend Cheyanne to join me and my chief executioner, Persephone in my plan.

For Saturday’s’ carnival games we united with a color scheme of pearl sheen green and purple (Don just happened to already have the perfect outfit). Nothing custom here—all off-the-rack designs here with a variety of added details.

Saturday night we entered the ballroom in our rainbow of latex colours, feathers and lace. We were a beacon in a sea of black and red!  The theme was inspired by my custom design for Cheyanne, with both of us as “Showgirls”, and Don and Persephone  as our complementary escorts (We made Dons’ jacket but can’t take credit for either his pants or latex mask).

When the awards were announced  did win— in a brand new category: Best Latex Group!

I was very pleased when an attendee of my Fetish Retinue (at the time, the longest-running monthly fetish party in NYC) brought his new financé (and latex virgin) to us at the Fetish Fair Flea Market for her first latex ensemble.

Unable to decide between our Marilyn Monroe top in sapphire blue or black, they opted for both, which she wore with our Knee-Length Skirt.

Their original plan was to head straight up to their room, but she received so many compliments, they ended up holding court in the hotel bar instead.

These outfits were so fun to create, I love dressing performers as I know their outfits will be seen by many and I love the unique challenges that must be considered for their act. Aerial duo Sylvana and Kyla came to me with their vision of the characters Kitana and Meleena from the game Mortal Kombat and added SubZero as their bodyguard!

In the words of Midori: “Crazy cat ladies doing good in the world!”
