The Baroness: After Final Fetish Retinue, Gettin' My Kicks on Route 66

Summer is usually a slow time in the latex business. The shop is quiet, other than the odd person stopping in to take advantage of the air conditioner, or to stroke the cats. But I've been keeping busy!

This Wednesday, July 27th, The Baroness fashions will appear at "VIVISECTION" An intimate goth/industrial party at—of all places—Laugh Lounge! I couldn't resist! The show combines classic elegant latex with bizarre rubber accessories and hot models!

Dress up for an evening of music, dance, entertainers and dark fashion, where the most outstanding dressed wins a grand prize! Because it's mid-week, my show starts early (10pm) so don't miss it! Laugh Lounge, 151 Essex (just below Houston) New York City. Doors open at 8pm. $10. $5 before 8:30pm.

I've also just come back from upstate New York, where I was filmed in an avant-garde, feature for Swedish TV. I played myself; (an expert on BDSM,) educating the actors of August Strindbergs' play, "Miss Julie" with the goal of changing the ending so the lead will not commit suicide. It was really interesting and I'm eager to see the final product.

Ricky Martin Shirt by The BaronessAt the boutique, we're working with stylists for some really exciting projects! For Macs' Viva Glam campaign we created custom garments for—drum roll—Ricky Martin & Nikki Minaj!

For Nikki Minaj we made white latex skirts, tops, and gowns with appliqu├ęd red lips. They also pulled an assortment of other latex. I'm really looking forward to seeing the results.

Another stylist pulled for RuPaul and crew for both the show and some public appearances! I love dressing divas!

On the subject of latex-clad party people, look at photos from both the final Fetish Retinue party and Royal Amusements dinner.

Coming up:

Saturday, August 6th, N.Y.C. The Baroness Summer Sale!

Just because it's hot doesn't mean you can't shop! I'm having a huge, one-day sale. All Baroness latex, along with sale garments, toys, vintage clothing, and shoes, are on sale at great prices. So come early and don't miss the bargains! The Baroness boutique is located at 530 B East 13th street between Avenues A & B open from 2-7.

Labor day weekend is Montreal's' Fetish Marathon, there's New York's' Comic Con convention for all you cosplayers, in fall London is the place to be, and next March, TLP's (Texas Latex Party) theme is uniforms.
