CableDrop and Cableyoyo, ‘in fashion’…for your comuter

Yes, I know this is usually a blog about fashion couture and latex lifestyle (at the very top of our interests); that we have featured everyone from Megan Massacare  to Rubberdoll to Bianca Beauchamp in this blog, through our issues 1 through eight and even on some behind the scenes video you see here from time to time; we champion Mode/Moda/Fashion in all its global forms by penning exposes on art, feature fetish and fantasy fiction and bringing you updates and photo collages on such renown  designers of latex-or pretty much any material-from houses like House of Harlot, Polymorphe, Inner Inner Sanctum to Jimmy Choo and Karl Lagerfeld.

Really we’re trying to cover as much of what we know interests us and our friends as we can.
So you can’t damn me when I get some handy dandy neato item to review that might fall afield of our usual reporting but I think truly ‘fashionable’ and certainly something we truly all could use in this day and age.

The CableDrop and Cableyoyo from http://www.cableorganizer.com/ both fit low data cords (the drops a little bit more as they can hold ear buds, glasses and pencils) are self adhesive beauties you can pretty much stick anyplace. The yoyo is actually a portable item, a square thin plate that allows you to coil up to 6 feet of a low voltage cord and when unwinding that cord from the yoyo you’ll find that cord remaining straight. You can put this little Cableyoyo in your pocket for on-the-go use. The drops, available in lime green, light mustard and pink are plastic ‘drops’ flat on one side (where they have a peel-and-stick backing) round on their other where a thin groove runs half through the thing’s face center horizontally.

See, it’s not all about tattoos, Ophelia Overdose or latex catsuits here at Von Gutenberg (not that we don’t love Ophelia and wouldn’t want to see her in a  catsuit!) The point is there’s a lot more to fashion then what people are wearing, as I have opined plenty of times (see my blog here on   ). Products like the CableDrop and Cableyoyo are truly fashionable for our times and worth a little look-see from you our Von Gutenberg reader….I know I’m going to use the ones I got.

Issue number eight of Von Gutenberg is worth a look-see too and if you have yet to have a look-see at our infamous tattoo issue with Miss Megan Massacre on its candy pink cover have a look here:

The Everything To Do With Sex Show: North America’s Best Consumer Show

ETDWSshow0025Do you recall (or have you ever heard) of Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex* (But Were Afraid to Ask) both the infamous serious book by Dr. David Reuben as well as Woody Allen’s hilarious 1972 movie send-up? This was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title The Everything To Do With Sex Show: North America’s Best Consumer Show. Safe, sound and dry up in Toronto for this get together, as much trade show as networking for people interested in fashion, lifestyle and yes, sex this Canada convention saw friends, co-workers, associates gather together for a grand ole time.

As you will know from reading our magazine and stopping here one of the clothing designers we have included in every issue of Von Gutenberg is Polymorphe (this is their website: http://www.polymorphe.com/) and they were present in at that Toronto show as a sponsor. We’ve plucked some great talent from Canada for past Von Gutenberg issues (like our issue #6 cover girl Mimi Cherry) and in attendance at the show was plenty of Canadian, as well as well known worldwide male and female talented performers.

Surely this convention wasn’t for everybody, but then again I’d be bored to tears at a convention for pipe fitters and I know there are conventions for them. Let’s just say this was all great clean adult fun, with lots to do and maybe actually everything one wants to do with sex at this consumer show. Check or Fantasy Event List for more of these kinds of outings: http://fantasyeventlist.com/

The Everything To Do With Sex Show: North America’s Best Consumer Show is a convention that primarily occurs up in Canada, hitting cities beyond Toronto like Hailifax, Niagara Falls (Ontario) Quebec and Montreal

Our Middle Name Is…

Looking above the VON GUTENBERG name on the magazine and on our website (hell, everywhere really) you will find this trio of words: Fashion.Latex.Lifestye. While the end words are subject to interpretation the middle one isn’t and as such we feature designers making it, models wearing it and spend lots of time pondering the wonderfully diverse material that is latex and how is impacts fashion and lifestyle. Certainly at VON GUTENBERG we are interested about cloth and leather, lace and denim, and we feature dresses, hats, goggles, gloves, shoes and just about everything else we can get our grubby little hands, hopefully presenting it all to you in a truly unique way. But latex outfits like dresses and catsuits, corsets and skirts are some of our ‘favorite things’, as the song goes.

If you delve into the V.G. portal or hit an event or two listed in our Fantasy Even List you’ll find plenty of friends who’ll be sporting outfits you’re bound to drool over, those who will share their latex fashion secrets with you (and those that won’t) and plenty who will lead you to the many places around the globe where you can find the very coolest-and latest-latex outfits, either right off the rack or custom made, by shopping in a store or buying off line.

Some of our favorite houses, ones we work almost all the time are Syren, Polymorphe (actually, here’s a Polymorphe’s latex care article, something that’s super important for any latex lover: http://www.polymorphe.com/index.php/en/customer-service/latex-care) and Westward Bound.

You might be an absolute freak for denim, taffeta might be your reason for living or you simply might like to wrap yourself in any material that you can afford and never give a care for what an outfit is made out of just as you like you in it. Rest assured though if you have a penchant for something specific there are people out there just like you and places to buy what you want. This is true for lovers of latex or people just interested in it.

Here at Von Gutenberg you know we are as interested in latex as you are.

 

So, Let Me Tell You About Bianca Beauchamp

Sorry to say I am not available for every shoot we do at Von Gutenberg. Yes, I jump at the opportunity to interview our captivating ladies in person (oh yeah, to lube them too, I almost forgot about the lubing…tee hee) Though I had the pleasure in issue # 6 to feast my eyes upon, in person, the incredible woman-ness that is Mimi Cherry, Deanna Storm and Miss Mischief, I did not enjoy that same pleasure with Bianca Beauchamp.

But this doesn’t mean I like the lady any less.

Bianca, like our cover girl Mimi, is a Canadian lady. She was the first model to dedicate her whole web site-Bianca’s Latex Lair-to latex fetish erotica, has worked with Playboy and has hosted fetish events in the U.S. U.K., Germany and Montreal. In her photo shoot for us she wore fashions from Westward Bound, Polymorphe and HWD Design and wore them so well her pictures are incindiary! If you have yet to see them, might I refer you to pick-up the marquis latex lifestyle magazine (if I might be so bold to say) here.

Polymorphe amazing fashion designs

Polymorphe 01Erik von Gutenberg recommends POLYMORPHE! Polymorphe is one of the best in the industry, his latex is extraordinary and his designs are simply beautiful! it is a must stop for shopping for all your latex needs!

Polymorphe has been a purveyor in latex since 1994.  Mario Bouchard and his talented team, transform barrels of raw latex into beautiful, high-quality sheeting in an array of colours (new ones are developed regularly) and ultimately, sexy fetish creations for men and women.  The complete process takes place in Quebec, never out-sourced for cheaper labour or cost reduction.  Polymorphe is a reputable company that creates quality products that will last a long time and provide an immense amount of pleasure for the wearer, not to mention the observer.

After suffering a fire in autumn of 2008, Blah Blah Studio (the photo studio behind the workshop) was opened within two weeks and the workshop resumed production within two months.  Undeterred, they are progressing and thriving with new designs for both men and women and late this summer, an online shop. 

For years, Polymorphe has been known for good quality basics at excellent prices, but now they are adding more costume and uniform-inspired pieces.  Naughty Nurse, Military, and a very frilly, girly, design by Gina King, have just been added for ladies.  Several new fashions for men have been created with codpiece openings and styled codpieces that attach (and more importantly, un-attach) easily by snaps.  There’s also a new legging/jock combination with an exposed rear.  Two unisex designs on the menu are latex suspenders and knee-length socks with distinct toes (extremely kinky).  As Mario says, ¨Imagine where you can go and what you can do with a lubed up sock with individual toes¨…just imagine! 

In addition to garment fabrication, Polymorphe often undertakes the exciting task of custom work for photo-shoots.  Check out their beautifully moulded horse heads (soon available for sale as part of an underground collection) and hoove-shaped gloves in the just released Marquis Magazine shoot featuring Bianca Beauchamp, photographed by Martin Perreault.

Catwoman Amber Moelter The Feline Fatale


img_5119editblackhaircomiclayoutalmlogo1Amber Moelter: The Feline Fatale

 

Dirty Step Upstage, the movie by Amber Moelter covered on Marquis America last month, features her latex-clad character Girl in the Red Dress. But the roots of Amber’s enthusiasm for latex lie in a different character, one that happens to be among the strongest fetish icons of all: Catwoman.

 

“Catwoman and I go way back,” she laughs. “I played her in two fan-films, first in 2004 and again in 2006. They were both amazing experiences and got a great response from Cat-fans. But more than that, they set me on the path that led to Vex Clothing, Marquis and all my other fetish friends, as well as to forming my own production company and making my own films. So, the character has had a really profound effect on me. She changed my life.”

 

Amber’s first incarnation of Selina Kyle was in Catwoman: Copycat, and originally didn’t involve latex at all. “The costume in Copycat was the classic all-black catsuit, but the first suit we tried was in PVC.  I could barely move.”

 

A change in costume made all the difference. “We altered the costume to a black latex catsuit from Polymorphe, which I loved compared to the PVC,” said Amber. “I celebrated by doing some splits and other poses, which wound up online in the behind-the-scenes featurette. That certainly seemed to go down well with fans….”

 

When the first film’s release stalled, Amber decided to play the character a second time and produced Catwoman: Resolution. Her decision to go for latex was automatic: “I searched everywhere for someone who could give me an awesome custom latex rubber suit on a indie-film budget. A seemingly impossible task turned into miracle when I came across Vex’s website and Laura Petrielli, who was fantastic and more than met all my requirements.”

 

img_5024editcomiclayoutalmlogoposterThe purple-and-black suit in Resolution was modeled on a specific outfit from the comics. “My first drawings were based on Jim Balent’s designs from Catwoman, Guardian of Gotham, the only time she wears a bondage-style black corset over the infamous purple catsuit. There’s even more of a dominatrix flavor about it than the earlier version, but I actually felt more naked than I had previously.”

 

Jim Balent himself let Amber know that he approved. “He contacted me, saying that it was a thrill to see Catwoman brought to life and that he liked how I had used his design. It was so incredible and gratifying to hear.”

 

Resolution was also the first product from Amber’s own company, ALM Talkies, and saw her diving into the movie business as a producer, writer, and latterly as director too. Timely perhaps, now that the Batman family is back on the movie screen in a big way.

 

“The other day I logged onto YouTube and saw a video of suggested actors to play Catwoman in the next Batman movie, and naturally it was fan favorites like Angelina and Charlize…and then I saw my own name!! Amazing! And of course I have so much history with the character, I’m the perfect choice. So, Christopher Nolan, if you’re listening….”
