I’d really like to use this opportunity to tell you all about one of my favorite rubber designers and a good friend of mine- Krystina Kitsis of Ectomorph London.
Krystina makes the most beautiful, well tailored couture latex and is a real corner stone of the english rubber movement. Trained at Central St Martins (like myself) Krystina takes a traditional approach towards rubber clothing, both stitching and gluing her garments, creating a unique, well constructed piece which really does last and last. With her specialist dress making skills she goes the extra mile making items which really stand out at any event- vanilla or fetish! Yes, Krystina’s work is so wearable that you can even get away with it outside of the scene- my Ectomorph summer dress stood out beautifully and was very well received at Cannes Film Festival. She’s been on the cover of countless high fashion magazines including Vogue and Elle, showing just how haute couture she is! Do have a peek on her website or visit her rail in the Atsuko Kudo shop! Krystina has a wonderful range of designs and will happily do custom work or made to measure garments! Ectomorph really is a rubberist’s dream investment. I adore my piece.
Last weekend was London’s premier fetish night’s 15th Birthday! Yes Club RUB has been here thank long! I’d like to begin by thanking the wonderful Kim RUB and her team for all the work they put in to this great event and the feisty barmaid for piquing my interest! Now the party was circus themed, so I rocked up in my best carnival coat with a pointed ‘tash to match, rubber and tight lacing underneath- naturally. Before we arrived my Nyx and I were driven by our Chauffeur to pick up a fantastic couple, indeed together we all made quite an entrance! When we arrived the club was already swarming with people and I was astounded by the quality of the costumes and the amount of rubberists there! Everyone was having a great time and I got to talk and play with friends new and old. Kim had arranged a lovely dungeon area which was well used as the night progressed and the covered smoking area was much appreciated by all, in this dreary weather. The Swan is a lovely location for Club RUB, providing a intimate atmosphere reminiscent of a fetish house party which suits Club RUB to a tea! To top the night two of my friends won prizes for their costumes! One being a £100 voucher for some dazzling couture heels and the other some sturdy rubber wrist cuffs! Hurray! We partied til dawn then (barmaid invited) piled in a cab back to Nyx’s for more debauchery throughout the next day- brownies baked by myself of course!
Do make an effort to join us at Club RUB next time!
I had crates loads of fun at Subversion on Saturday, frolicking with two Geordies I fondly refer to as ‘The UK’s hottest rubber couple (that I’ve met!)‘ There was lots of horny play to be had and the most crazed dancing I’ve partaken in in a long time -and I dance a lot! Anyway, more importantly here’s some photos to share the heavy rubber awesomeness! I’m very pleased with how this outfit came out, if you are too you can thank my Dom-ly one as He decided what I was to wear as uniforms are a big kink of His!
Hey pretty perverts I thought I’d share with you all my new Rubber 55 hood and the cute collar and lead i was gifted for my for my Birthday! Yes its official guys I’m 21 now! Anyway the photography is again by the phenomenal Izas Gonzales of Compulsive Behaviour. I won this hood at the Annual Rubber Awards at Club RUB in October as a prize for Best hood, its a beautiful fit and encases my shaven head tightly, I had the eyes and mouth holes slightly adjusted and I adore this hood (I wore it last night to Pedestal!) I can’t wait to wear it for a full Rubber doll look!
Cynth Icorn interviewed at London Fetish Fair by PashArt. The London Fetish Fair is a great little event hosted at Shillibeers in Kings Cross. It goes on a with a little after party at the end with play equipment and a bar. Shillibeers serves good food during the day and the stalls are full of good quality fetish toys, clothing and equipment. I’d just been roused from my sleep by friends who had crashed at House after a party, when I discovered they were going to The LFF I decided to tag along, considering it was masked themed that month I couldn’t really say no! So I grabbed my rubber and headed out the door! It was lots of fun, I saw lots of people I knew and enjoyed dreaming after some lovely latex outfits which were on display. My friend’s Kobal and bratt had a stall with their pneumatic fetish equipment on display and so I was able to have a go on their caning machine which is rather cool and can deliver quite a thwack! I had a lovely chat with Krystina Kitsis who runs the phenomenal Ectomorphe latex as well as lots of other good friends.
I am delighted to tell you all that this Saturday I will be performing at The Club RUB Annual Rubber Awards aboard HMS President. This spectacular event will include the opportunity to win over 15 perverted prizes! Sponsors include Gernot, Demask, Rubber55 and House of Harlot! There will be something for everyone, Goddess Ira will be performing as well as Kobal1, Late Night Shop and Myself!
My performance is entitled Rubberbirth so prepare yourself for a spiritual sensory experience and a new coming. Rubberbirth is imminent!
Last weekend it was the London Festival of Japanese Rope Bondage, held at The Resistance Gallery and organized by Garry Vanderhorne, Nawashi Murakawa and Bruce Esinem. It was a real privilege to be at this event and watch the amazing performances from phenomenal kinbaku artists from across the globe. I was particularly pleased to be able to see some of the traditional Japanese styles of tying done by the top Rope artists from Japan. The interplay between the rigger and the sub was beautiful to be privy to and the delicacy of the movements created and the shapes made by the ties were stunning. I also particularly enjoyed Nawashi Murakawa’s performance based around traditional shibari and following the narrative of The Yoshiwara of Hiogo as well as the above performance by Otonawa captured by Izaskun Gonzales. I really recommend this as a festival for art, fetish or rope enthusiasts. Friendly, intense and artful.
The SPCH is here to promote the wearing of hoods and masks at clubs and fetish events.
Please join if you are an aficionado, supporter or would be hooder. We are here to support, suggest and serve. If you’re nervous or looking for a comfortable hood to wear we can help advise you. Hoods are more than an accessory, they make an outfit. Hoods empower and define. Drawing attention to beautiful eyes and lips, find the right hood for your face.
By and large I get a highly positive reaction although when people don’t get it entirely you can have some amusing reactions.
After taking my hood off for a breather a lovely girl said ‘You’re very pretty you don’t need to hide your face’ to which I smiled and replied ‘Its not because I want to hide my face, its because I enjoy wearing it!’ I find most anxiety or confusion can be cured with a smile and an explanation.
Larvatus Prodeo often carries a bag of hoods around with him to clubs and lets people try them on, its wonderful seeing so many people over coming perhaps initial anxiety and enjoying wearing them. At times we have trouble getting them back and often people ask where they are from. A foot on the right path indeed!
Currently my fave is my white Slinky Skin hood which I had custom made for me, its very comfortable and white latex is much less common than black. The mouth hole is particularly flattering and there is space for my ears and nose and no evil jaw ache!
Last year I wore my Black Rubber 55 hood with custom eye holes lots and lots, the rubber was thinner so it was quite comfortable and the pattern is very flattering. Sadly it needs a little healing before I can wear it out again.
Hey pervs! I just had published my latest article for Skin Two.
‘Over the past few years, outward displays of faith have been a hot topic, but now the debate has taken a route which makes it more relevant than ever to fetishists. A midwife in Bedford has been dismissed from work for wearing an emblem of her beliefs, her silver slave collar. (See Article) She has taken the matter to the courts because she believes that this is a discriminatory act. North and East Herts Health Authority refuted this claim, stating that the issue was purely a matter of health and safety. The midwife then stood her ground, referring to the allowances made for others to wear symbols of more traditional belief e.g crucifix necklaces.’
