Maison Chardon is hosting their decadent art at the Super Wonder Gallery in Toronto this Friday night. So far it looks like I am definitely coming to see it! There are a lot of latex, fishnet, nylon, and other creative fabrics used to make the costumes. If you have a look at their Instagram page, there is even a Korean male model posing in a corset and shiny pantyhose. How cool is that?!
I am going to visit the superwondergallery.com this weekend to see some cool x-rated art. It is also co-hosted by the Aqua Lounge and a whole bunch of their sexy hostesses will be there.
This is happening February 22 and 23, starting at 8 p.m. at night. This is in downtown Toronto, the closest intersection being College and Clinton. Besides art, there will be other entertainment like pole dancers for example. Can you come?
This work is by an Italian Aritst, Giuseppe Palmisano, it just happened a few days ago in Pesaro, Italy, on June 25th. He scouted 300 women to wear white tights and pose for him. The art project is called Empty (Vuoto). Surprisingly, women did it free of charge just to support the art. They didn’t even get to keep the tights.
I’ve read somewhere that he is going to repeat it with darker skin ladies wearing black tights. However, I’m doing all this through Google Translate, so if someone here speaks Italian, can you have a look and let us know?
Giuseppe welcomes all women, regardless of size and age, but they can’t have any distracting tattoos. I couldn’t include all the photos that I found just because ladies are topless and I am trying to draw a line somewhere in terms of what I want to display on this blog, even though I think that artistic nudity is beautiful.
PhotoEspaña, Círculo de Bellas Artes, hosting an art exhibition of many artists, including the French photographer and painter, Pierre Molinier, who was an avid black stockings fetishist and a transvestite.
This exhibit takes place in Madrid from May 31st to August 27th, 2017.
Is anyone currently in Spain now? Can you visit and tell me what it was like? I wrote about him earlier, his work is for sure a bit of a taboo, don’t go with your children.
There is a lot of explicit nudity and maybe even violence from what I’ve read about the artist. This would be an 18+ exhibit.This French artist was considered completely shameless, or perhaps just way too progressive for his era.
One of the people on my twitter account brought this artist to my attention. Paul Kelley is based in Nova Scotia, Canada. If you browse through his galleries, especially the dance one, there are a lot of paintings of graceful women in pantyhose.
I also spotted a few stockings and garter belts in his sensual collection. Way to go! I am always trying to support local artists, especially those who admire pantyhose and stockings as much as I do.
I just subscribed to his newsletter and I hope to see his exhibit live some day. From time to time I make it to Nova Scotia because my uncle lives not far from there and also because of my love for the ocean.
These fun tights with rhinestones were designed for me by a man who wanted to start a business like this. However, to my knowledge, it didn’t work out. I still got to keep a pair of tights like that, made especially for me. I modeled them for his business and also did a Youtube video at some point.
I think that it is a nice artistic idea, but not everybody wants to have their name visible to public. But what to write instead? Even with my imagination I find it hard to visualize what I would want written on my legs. The only thought that comes to mind is something like “Go Leafs Go” for a nice outing to a game by Toronto Maple Leafs team.
Part of my stay was in my friend’s apartment, part in the hotel. It’s quite amazing what you can learn about your friends when you stay with them for a few days. I spotted a bunch of erotic art books (certainly I had a peak and every second picture has stockings in it), for example. Never knew she is into that!
Here are some quotes that revolve around stockings and feet that I found from that book that I thought to share with you. I wish I could share some pictures, but I must say some of them kind of shocked me by being so explicit for those times. Many of those artists actually remained anonymous.
“I couldn’t help it. I can resist everything except temptation.”
From Lady Windermere’s Fan, Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900)
“… continual excitement of trousers and petticoats, the crisp sound of stockings caressed…”
From a poem, Lone Gentleman, by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda
“How beautiful are thy feet in sandals, O prince’s daughter!”
Located in the London suburbs, the International Pole Sports Federation is trying to disembarrass "pole sports" from its association with strip clubs and find a way to include it in the Olympics. This is not surprising to happen because a similar attempt was made in 2012 but it has not been successful.
What makes pole dancing currently so controversial is its unavoidable dimly lit undertones, in spite of the fact that they banned pole dancing staples such as removing pieces of clothing. Other steps taken towards being taken seriously as a sport include giving technical code names for moves and specifying strict scoring rules based on their difficulty. Although some dancers may argue that regimentation has gone to the point of taking the fun out of it, people are still reluctant to the idea of it becoming an Olympic sport.
Its origins, however, are not what you might expect. Swinging around vertical poles and ropes has been around since the 12th century when Mallakhamb was introduced in India as an exercise for male wrestlers. Surely enough pole dancing is still regarded as a form of exercise, as it requires strength, flexibility and endurance. In addition to improving physical fitness, pole dancing is also used by women to build up confidence.
Undoubtedly, pole dancing is becoming more and more popular. With appearances in films such as Desperate Housewives and The View, increasingly more celebrities (Jessica Alba, Demi Moore, Britney Spears, to name a few) practice it on a daily basis. Pole dancing, after all, is no longer a show for men as it is a way for women to achieve something for themselves. Only time will tell if it’ll succeed becoming an Olympic game.
To all my friends who celebrate Easter, you may find it entertaining that in 2008 Gucci decided to run a series of pysanka-inspired designs. Pysanka is the art of Ukrainian Easter egg decoration. It’s quite a procedure!
With some precision wax application and alternating colouring solutions one can achieve incredibly detailed designs. One time, a very long time ago, when I was a teen, I had the experience of making such a decorative egg at an ethnic event.
By the way, for those of you who are interested in recycling pantyhose, it is used to dye Easter eggs. Pantyhose fabric plays the role of a casing that presses leaves or designs against the egg and thus leaving that shape uncoloured.
I am asking Julia from Ukraine to do a hosiery-inspired pysanka design for this blog. Will she do it? Your encouragement is greatly appreciated in both verbal and financial form.
