Behind the scene of the sakura photo shoot of everyone coming together to get things ready. I have the best friends!

Behind the scenes of Vudu Juju’s first time in a vacbed on the set of the Sakura Vacbed photoshoot! The Sakura vacbed was our most ambitious vacbed design yet and we’re super lucky to have such fantastic friends to help put something like this together. Here’s the video proof of how awesome our friends are!
And a special thanks to Slinka, Madison, Melanie and Adventure Seeker
Here’s a gallery of all the Sakura Vabed photos in celebration of the behind the scenes video being released later today :)
A satisfied customer and a testiment to how functional our Micro-Breathe Zentai style latex enclosure hoods are! This is a self portrait using a mirror taken while wearing what seems to be a blackout hood.
He can see through the many teeny-tiny holes at the eye region and breathe through nose and mouth micro-holes. It’s like wearing dark sunglasses when you wear the hood.
Of course… the eye holes are optional if you would rather not see. :)
Thanks to twohandstochoke for the photo.
I could not be more excited to post this particular picture…
About 12 or 13 years ago Alexander Horn (pictured above - the one not wearing the hood) did a LOVELY set of fashion/fetish photos involving a vacbed on his website. That was the very first exposure I had to the concept of the vacbed, and it hit a switch in my head that has (obviously) remained on and in overdrive ever since.
So… in a way, Alexander contributed to the spark that formed Kink Engineering.
It was a particular honour a few weeks ago to have him come to me for some hoods for an event he was planning to attend in a few months, and to find out that a hero of mine in the latex scene actually noticed the design work that I had been doing.
A productivity guru that I follow recently gave advice about writing along the lines of “Decide who it is you want to delight” - and I have kept that in mind in my design work. I designed as if I had my heros in the field looking over my shoulder (or following my blog) and over time the result has been those people actually taking note, and in some cases becoming co-operative partners in projects, and friends. (See recent madness at House of Gord for example)
So… that’s some great advice. In whatever you do that makes you feel most whole, think of who you would most like to delight. Then work really really hard at that task. You may never catch the attention of that person you wanted to impress… but you’ll certainly impress a LOT of other people along the way.
More steam punk vacbed: Photo shoots are hard work to get to. But it’s worth it to show off something totally new.
First thing to teach your cat… don’t touch the latex. ;)
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.
