The perfect outfit for shopping?

Fine, for those privileged to see both blogs tonight, you’ve got one serious one, and a silly one. Of course, in either case, if you only know of one, or the other, well, its pot luck, in that case! In case you couldnt guess, this is the silly one.

One of the non writing boards on one of the writing forums I visit twice a day, has one board dedicated to images. Some of them nice, some of them weird, or weirder (depending on your tastes), and an eclectic mix in between. One of those in the eclectic mix (though some might see it as weird?) is a board dedicated to pictures of latex clothing.

No, sadly, as I’ve commented before on here, my days of even considering wearing latex clothing is long gone. Well, as far as I’m concerned, it is, though given the, err, skirt, I saw a woman very much older than me this week, which just about covered her ‘modesty’, maybe I shouldnt think that way? or maybe I need to be made to think differently, lol, now that might be fun. Sorry, Sir (or Madam), wasnt my choice to go out in a latex catsuit, at my age, they made me do it! No, if anyone has got any taste, they wouldnt want me to wear a latex catsuit in the first place, at my age.

In truth, most of the items are catsuits, crop tops, or short dresses that pretty much reveal everything, even allowing for the fact that latex clothing tends to do that, in one sense at least, anyway! But then, you get the odd one that well, could be quite respectable, like this one.

Luxury latex

Yes, pretty classy, dont you think, as latex clothing goes, lol? Just a casual day out, shopping, or the like, darlings! No, at my age, even something like that, I dont think latex would be flattering on a 60 year old figure, but fine, to my weird eyes at least, that looks fun! Perfect for the local shopping center, I have my doubts! Or does it just look classy because of the hat, and the necklace, and after that…?

But fine, if I was 40 years younger, and slimmer, that would be a fun shoot to do!

Fine, end of silliness for tonight!

Well, given it looks like she’s going shopping, I thought of this. Lets face it, those guys have worn some pretty weird outfits over the years too!

And with lyrics like these, its hard to believe this song was written long before the internet became popular!

Respectable clothing at 60?

Recently on Amazon, I saw a silk skirt that was described as long length, 20’s style, in silver. Fine, for me, that ticks all boxes, lets face it. And on receipt, I have to agree with everything but one tiny matter, the length! Maybe knee length (barely) was long for those daring young Flapper Girls in the 1920’s, but for me, at 60, when I see long length, I’m expecting at least calf, if not ankle, but anyway… Yes, as you’ve gathered, this long length skirt just about covers my knees when I’m standing up, and struggles to do so when sat down!

No, I’m not sending it back, as I say, its gorgeous, and a young cheerleader, or even a young Flapper would love it. But me, at 60, where it out, doing the flapper look, absolutely no chance! My legs may well be better than I believe they are (several have told me they are), but my knees arent a pretty sight due to surgical issues, so something this short, in public, no chance!

But what I was wondering, is what length do people regard as respectable for a woman of my age? Is flashing my knees, as a Flapper would, fine, or just the biggest no-no of all time? But what is OK? Just below the knee? Calf length? Ankle length? Is it just me being too modest, or am I wise not to wish like mutton dressed as lamb?

Before you ask, yes, I do wear dresses out that show some leg, from time to time. But I do make sure they’re safely below the knee, but now I’m wondering, is that just because I’m aware of the state of my knees, or is it just because I dont think its suitable for a 60 year old to wear? If anyone wants to advise before I pack for Seattle, feel free! Funnily enough, last year, I bought a dress on line that claimed to be calf length, but again, barely covered my knees, so never worn since. Yes, its pink, yes its gorgeously flapper, but for a woman of my age, wearing it out, my view is no!

But should it be that way?

Mind, thats not the only style of dress I love that i’m not brave enough to wear now. Lets ignore my crazy ‘leather’ skirt purchases, they are too short to wear out, but fine, I picked them up for virtually nothing, and they were fun to wear indoors once, but probably never again. But my leather trousers, should I really be avoiding them, just because of my age…?

And no, much though the idea of wearing latex clothing, especially a catsuit, might appeal to me, in my eyes, there is no way that a 60 year old should ever wear anything like that, so now I guess I never will. But is that the right attitude?

To be fair, there is one dear friend (Yes, Adriana, I mean you), who would happily convince me to dress up showgirl style, a la Clara Johnson without any thought whatsoever. And fine, maybe she’s right? Oh, and agreed, if I was talked into it, and no one else beyond close friends saw, I agree, it would be fun. But I can see her wanting me to go out, in showgirl mode, and have fun for an evening, but…is it the done thing?

So tell me, should I lighten up, and flash my knees (and maybe some body?), come what may, and just enjoy it, or am I wise keeping it at least relatively modest in look? What do you see as apt for a 60 year old? And no, as much as I would love to wear a Burqua just once, for the experience (and Muslim support), I hope you dont want me to go quite that far in cover up lol!

Right, video time. Being honest, these outfits are about as revealing as many that Clara had to wear, but these were seen on TV when children would have been watching! Oh those wild 70’s lol! But me, like Clara Johnson, dressed as a dancing queen, hmm?

Thats what I like!

Its fair to say that more than a few stories on the EMCSA attract my attention, because they are well written, cleverly done, and have great characters. Then, fine I admit it, you get stories that push my buttons for just so many reasons, and today happened to provide one of those! I have no idea if the use of the name Stephanie was an actual tribute to me, or just coincidence, but fine, dropping a character named Stephanie (its the name I’m known as, on the forums) into a situation where she can choose to become part of a hive mind, then yes, I’m impressed. The fact that the story is well written, and includes latex drone outfits are a handy bonus as well, mind.

Oh, you want the link? Well…?

Before you ask, no, I’ve never been to a hypnosis convention, so have no idea if the portrayal of such is accurate, or not? I have been hypnotized of course, more than once, but always on a one to one basis, nothing like a convention. But yes, if I was met by a latex clad drone, asking me if I wanted to become part of a hive mind, there is only one possible answer, yes please! Oh, and if you’re wondering, no, my, sorry, Stephanie’s transformation isnt just by simple hypnosis! And yes, there is a bit of a twist at the end too!

Oh fine, a chrome coating would be even better, but…

So no, I have no idea if it was written for me, or not, but regardless, I could very much fancy the thought that it was. Now, if that could really happen…

The logic of pop music over the years really is, that there is nothing logical to it. So, if anyone now said that this act, mixing old songs into a record/video, the latter of which would include a bunny, well…But yes, 3 number 1’s in a row in the UK, with first 3 records! So, yes, being turned into a hive mind, latex clad drone, thats what I would like!

My version of Gotham City

Most people nowadays, when talk turns to Batman, think of the dark, brooding portrayals in movies, in recent times, but not me. For me, the one true Batman came from a camp, kitschy TV series from the 1960’s, portrayed by Adam West, who has sadly just departed this world, and not in a Batmobile either. Fine, he was 88, but the fact that I remember watching the original series, when it came out, though only in black and white, then yes, I begin to feel old!

Oh fine, given I was between the age of 8, and the age of 10 when it was originally shown, a lot of the camp nuances would have sailed straight over my head. Possibly for the better at that age, but anyway… I do remember all the ‘Bam! Kapow! and Wham!’ stuff that appeared on the screen each time a punch was thrown, mind.

I guess it just shows how much things have changed, that all the technology in the Bat Dungeon now seems so dated. Back then, it was so far ahead of the technology of the time, that a young girl probably watched on in amazement. Lets face it, nowadays, the Police would just call him on a cell phone lol! But back then, the concept of the bat signal, floodlit for him to see it…ah well!

No, I might be able to blame the whole Batman thing for some of my kinks, but the robot fetish isnt one of them. The whole kinky clothing thing though, absolutely! Even though this was before the days when Batman wore a solid looking latex outfit, the outfits were, err, quite something, all the same. Especially my favorite one, but more on that shortly!

Yes, I know, Adam West, as Batman, was no youngster, even back then. The whole point being that he had to be old enough to be Robin’s guardian, lets face it. So yes, I might still have a few years left yet, but its the sort of thing that makes you realize that you’re getting old!

So, RIP, Adam West, and thanks for so much childhood entertainment, that lives on today, even if only on You Tube!

Oh, right, I mentioned one specific character, and outfit, didnt I? I’m not saying that the Michelle Pfieffer Catwoman outfit didnt influence me, because it did! I suspect that was more PVC, than Latex, but it was restrictive, sexy, and fine, I wished it was me wearing it. But again, the Catwoman I grew up loving was not her, it was the more kittenish Julie Newmar for me. And fine, for a young child at least, that outfit was something I longed to wear at the time, too.

So here, as a tribute to Adam West, is a clip where Julie attempts to ‘seduce’ Batman, even if thats not really her aim, as the clip shows. Thanks for the memories, both of you.

If I get a job this week, should I go wild?

I know, stop laughing, but stranger things have happened in life, and besides, wouldnt it be more of a blow, having set myself up for a residence in Hollywood, if it wasnt to happen? Despite one or two agencies telling me that the jobs start a week today, and everything else, I havent heard from them today. And given that one has done nothing but mess me about up till now, I’ve no great expectations of them coming through at least. I have got an agency visit to register tomorrow (applied for today, need to keep up efforts till after Job Centre on Friday, at least), and the Council, group assessment one on Wednesday, so maybe it will finally happen, but anyway…This is about a couple of crazy options if I do get that job…I know, I’m laughing too!

First one is this weekend, an Adult exhibition being held over in Manchester. Here’s the link http://www.sexhibitionexpo.co.uk/

I know, I have no interest in sex, at my age I’m not going to become a burlesque artist, or adult dancer or anything, but it might be fun. Indeed, it almost certainly would be fun to do, for nothing else, looking at the latex clothing, and other fashion delights! Mind, if I got there, and someone wanted to make me think I was sexy, at my age, lol! But yes, practically, if I’m going to Hollywood to live for a while, I wont be doing this, silly to spend extra money. But if I’m not…I might think about it, then finally decide on Saturday morning that I’m not going!

Maybe I should, might spice my life up, but anyway…

Second one would be even more fun, the weekend after, but far more expensive, so unless I am working, definitely out! Put it this way, I dont think I’ll be trying fund raising again, even if there are some strange folk who might enjoy photos of me in latex clothing. At my age, seriously? Yes, the studio in Leeds where I’ve done my 2 shoots are having a latex clothing photo shoot, which would be fun to do. At least then I’d know what its like to wear, probably the only way I will! But remember, I’m 57, and the words ‘Mutton dressed as lamb’ do come to mind. I’d love to do it, it will be done in a highly professional way, but £300…no chance without a good paying job, ah well…

More realistically, unless things happen, Saturday, I’ll be sorting out the booking for Hollywood, flights and apartment, just a matter of deciding for how long. But you never know, I might be going to Sexhibition…stop laughing!

The video, no idea why this came to mind. It is the censored version, but even so…be warned! Not my music, but it could hardly be ignored

Tie me up, and a few other things

Seriously, if there is anyone out there who thinks I’ve had a thoroughly innocent past, you’re going to be disappointed. Fine, I’m not as kinky as some, but yes, I’ve done bondage, and electro play in the (distant) past, though sadly I’ve never got to do a robotisation role play as yet, but there’s still time. I’ve played with the pro’s, I’ve played in private, I’ve played in clubs, so…Not that my halo should slip too far in your imagination, given the mind control stuff I’ve written in the past, but anyway…Oh, and fine, I’ve been friends with a couple of massage parlour workers, and I dont mean the ones who work wonders on my back, either! No, I couldnt do their job, but because of the kinky stuff… 😉

Kind of ironic then, that my interest in actual sex is pretty much zero. I mean, I’ve never had much of a sex drive ever in my life, but this century, well, I just havent bothered full stop. Literally, the 15th anniversary of the last time is only 4 months away! Alright, a little personal attention, every week or two, but otherwise, absolutely nothing! And no, I dont miss it.

Equally, as I’ve mentioned in the past, my Twitter feed is a pretty eclectic mix. Everything from old movies, vintage clothing and stuff, right through to scientific stuff. Oh, and writing stuff of course, what I originally planned to use it for. Well, anyway, one of my ‘friends’ there not only does vintage stuff, she’s also into burlesque! Up to now, my only experience of Burlesque was at that amazing party in Hollywood, in April, and yes, it was entertaining. No, I couldnt do it now. Maybe when I was in my twenties, just maybe, but in my fifties, you have to be joking!

Anyway, one of her contacts on Twitter is one of the queens of burlesque, and made a posting about how liberating strip tease could be. So fine, you know me, I made a witty comment about it not being a career option for a 50 something, and it went’downhill’ from there! No, not literally, but it did get to the point where they were trying to convince me that donning tassels, and shaking my body, at my age, was still a viable option! Next thing I know, a couple of others have joined in, and I’m being told about an event happening in Manchester next month, this

Home

No, thankfully, or otherwise, I’m not yet stripping, or doing burlesque at this show, though I know one or two who might say why not? Well, the fact I’m 57, not overly pretty, and have a body in less than perfect condition, but otherwise, oh fine!

I’ll be honest with you, if I was younger and earning, going to something like this might be a lot of fun. No, not to join the burlesque show, but seeing some of the corsetry, and fine, the latex clothing might just be a lot of fun. Not that I’d buy latex clothing at my age, and however much I love corsets (and I do), having no one to tie me into one makes it a daft buy, as my physical limitations would make it impossible for me to tie myself into one. Besides which, I’m lousy at knots anyway! And yes, I dont deny the chance to meet some of the people who do these things would be interesting.

As some who delve the site might have noticed, there’s even a BDSM/Bondage room in the evening. Now, if I say the last time I did any bondage would be about 10 years ago…yes, been a while, but it used to be fun. The only thing I never got was the spanking/caning/whipping stuff, which I never enjoyed, far too painful for me. I know, getting zapped by nice amounts of electrics can be painful, but thats a different ball game for me!

So now I can hear you asking, will I be going? Lets just say I’ll think about it, more so if I’ve got a job by then, and not working that Saturday. It would be fun, even if I’m not likely to get tied up, and ‘fried’ during the day, and the evening do would be inconvenient, both in terms of cost, and getting home afterwards! But fine, I’m tempted to go over during the day, despite the cost, and the fact I cant afford to buy anything, but it would be nice.

Right, the video. One of those random You Tube searches under ‘Tie Me Up’ led me to this.

A little bit of leather

Yes, before anyone mentions it, I know, I still owe a picture of me in a latex skirt. And equally seriously, yes, it really is down to a pretty crazy work life at present which is why it hasnt got taken. Hopefully Monday or Tuesday I can find time, if things remain calm, and nothing unexpected crops up. Like another 8-12 inches of snow lol! Seriously, a first today, I didnt get to work because of the weather, combination of both buses and trains failing to perform in all honesty, for various reasons.

Unfortunately it meant I got some practice at what it must be like to compete in the Iditarod, ploughing through the snow both into, and out of town, and all in the end, for nothing. Ah well…No, I wont be entering the Iditarod though, I know that was a stroll in the park compared to what they do, and that was bad enough at my age.

But enough about that, for now at least. Yes, I know, I mentioned leather, and you dont think I mean the purse in my handbag either, do you? And you’d be right, I didnt. Blame, or thank my friend Heather, depending on how you feel on this matter. Over at the MC Garden, we have a picture thread for the delights of bikers, principally female, and ideally wearing leather. Well today, she posted a series of videos there dedicated to that matter. And seeing how good I am to my readers, I’m reposting one of them here.

I guess the fact that she’s blonde, wearing a full leather suit, and its dated helps for me, you can tell its dated by the cars in it, if nothing else. The song, well thats slightly newer, from the 70’s, but very apt. No, I havent got a leather suit like that one, but if anyone wants to get me one, I’m open to offers. But I have got a few pairs of leather trousers, and a leather skirt, and a leather look skirt, so…you get my drift? 😉 But due to balance issues, the only way you will get me on a motorbike is balanced on the back, clinging on to someone in front of me, so…mmm?

Oh, and one last snippet about the artist, Chris Spedding. This might be remembered as his biggest hit, but its far from the case. Anyone remember that legendary pop group, The Wombles? Well yes, he was one of the guitarists in that group, and often seen performing in that large furry outfit!

So enjoy the leather look here, and if someone asks nicely, maybe I can get a pic done of me in leather trousers. Or is that thought just too scary for you lol?

If you want that outfit, you need to get it for me lol!
