"Laser cut latex fashion has been a big thing this year, both for the more established latex designers as well as the DIY latex enthusiasts out there.
The latest craze on the laser cut fashion front-line is these amazing Latex Fishnet Stockings from Ego Assassin.
I asked James from Ego Assassin, how they came up with this idea “We got the idea to make latex fishnets because over the years many of our customers have asked us if it was possible to make such a thing. We have always had to say no because we couldn’t think of a way to cut a fine and consistent mesh pattern into latex, and still maintain any semblance of durability. I know that many latex designers — ourselves included — have attempted to solve this problem with a variety of appliqué-based approaches, but the final product was always rather bulky and the look was never quite right.” He continues “When Kink Engineering announced they would be offering laser-cutting services to the latex industry, one of our first thoughts was that it could be used to finally make a true fishnet latex stocking. We experimented with various laser settings, hole shapes, and mesh densities, until we arrived at a pattern that worked.”
So how the stockings are produced? James explains “The stockings are made by laying a sheet of latex into the laser machine, and cutting the whole stocking in one piece, including thousands of tiny rounded slashes. The piece is then taken out of the machine, the off-cuts are removed, and it is thoroughly cleaned. The stockings are then assembled with one seam up the back and reinforcement around the edges.
The end result is a sheer, lightweight, and durable latex fishnet stocking that can be worn on its own, or shined up and paired any latex outfit.” Check out this video from Ego Assassin on how easy it is to put on the stockings: Pretty cool, right?
The stocking are actually leg sleeves witch is a really good thing, as your tiny toes won’t get stuck in the stockings mesh and is simply much more comfortable to wear. I also believe they would also look fantastic on top of regular pair of latex stockings. I’m sure that we have just scratched the surface of what is possible with laser cut latex, and we can expect much more on this front in the years to come!”
Public Service Announcement: Radation Chart
A very valuable comparison of radiation exposure for anyone who is feeling uneasy about fallout from Japan.
(Aka: It’s not a problem to you unless you are very close to the reactor… send money instead of spending time worrying!)

Miss Rubber World Archean did a little public service writing on behalf of www.sheetlatex.com and put together a super useful latex thickness and usage guide! If you are interested in building things out of latex but don’t know what thickness to use (or to get your favorite manufacturer to use) start here!
How do you know what gauge of latex sheeting to buy, or what gauge will work for a specific garment? That’s a question that, as a sheeting supplier, I’m faced with almost daily. With that in mind, I decided to compile an index of latex sheeting gauges and how they’re typically used. This is just a…
On request: A photo of a vacbed with our “Small Port” option. This small port is being used to allow for the 2nd girl in the vacbed to breathe. The small port can also be used to install electrical play devices, enema play hoses, or any other thing that that you need to get into/out of the vacbed without breaking the seal.
When not in use the small port, which is shaped like a small penis gasket, is long enough to be closed off air tight with a simple twist tie. Handy!
We can also do all sorts of custom options, and contraptions to suit your fetish! Get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask us questions.
Fetish Dynasty Podcast: This podcast is really REALLY well done! Includes an interview with Fetish Kitsch - Go listen to it (NSFW!)
What I like about this podcast (first episode) is that it’s a totally down to earth conversation about kink with people who take it seriously, but who don’t take themselves too seriously. Wonderful and worth a listen.
Here’s an older shot of theirs with a vacbed we made them.
We did an amazing photoshoot recently with a local professional photographer to try to catalog the properties of our latex sheeting… I’m absoloutly in love with the results!
I think we’ve captured color, transparency, reflectiveness (both specular and diffuse) and most importantly, how the latex looks against the skin.
Also… it sorta looks like candy… sexy latexy candy.
