This weekend after performing at Club RUB, I went on to Antagony a hard music night which has a huge anything goes attitude. Some of my friends go regularly and had been telling me I needed to go for sometime! The night’s described as Queer Punk- a term I’ve not heard much other than in reference to this, but apparently my friends felt I would fit the scene well. So, prepared for some serious dancing I wore my big ol’e goth boots and threw on a my rubber corset and hood with some leather gloves and got going! The music was amazing once I relaxed into the vibe and got my groove on, I hadn’t danced like this in a LONG time. It was like my first goth club days but harder and faster and with more confidence! The club has a preserved back street, run down look to it, one entered through the back door rather than the front and there was minimal staff and the club itself was tatty, creating a perfect squattish vibe which I feared would be missing when I discovered the event was not held at squats and warehouses as I’d first envisaged. The smoke machine filled the room and a projector screened cult visuals, the dancers sweat covered and incensed by the music, skins pierced heavily and mottled with tattoos, hair dreadlocked, shaved. A heavy hardcore fetish rave indeed.
I’m performing a specially themed performance at Club RUB tonight!
‘Set sail into the sea surreality with performance artist Cynth Icorn. Her show is entitled ‘Friggin’ in the rigging’ and it’s part punk, part pirate and pure perversion. Add a few needles and sand castles flag and you have a Naughty Nautical scene.’
Its Naughty Nautical this month! So grab your flags and dinghies and set sail upon the seas of sexuality!

Torture Garden- September Ball 2010
As HM Larvatus Prodeo and I arrived we managed to happen upon our good friend Miss Chaos, once we were all ready we followed the turn and turn about of the spiral staircase which sits at the core of the building the party was in full swing with lots of lovely people in beautiful costumes.
I wore a floor length velvet skirt, hitched to the crotch at front my rubber corset, rubber elbow length gloves, my rubber hood, a beaded Venetian mask and two necklaces attached to my nipples with kirby grips- this I found to be far more painful than I expected!
Soon enough we bumped into a beautiful rubber couple we are friends with and I became very excited to discover that EeenyMeeney had her hood with her! Good goth they looked good! Nothing better than heavy rubber couples! Yum yum! We all chattered and ponced about in front of LP’s camera.
Later in the night I laced myself into my new ballet boots in an attempt to do some practice, sadly the floor was far too booze covered by that time of night but LP still got this snazzy shot of me before I gave up!
All in all it was a fab night with wonderful people who I can not wait to see again.

I had a fab night raving away in this costume and enjoying everyone’s reactions. It was a great night for seeing friends too so I was really glad to catch up with a lot of people, including those from over seas! That’s what I love about the big TG events, lots of friendly faces from all over! It was a great night, I just wish my outfit had been more fetish orientated rather than just fun!
