Proud Plum is latex dress made for a photo session with the upcoming shooting star Victoria van Violence, a beautiful and talented model from Frankfurt/Germany.
The dress is solely made from 0.35mm plum colored latex. The two front parts overlap over the chest and close behind the neck with the help of a couple of snap fasteners. A zipper is assembled on the back to help dressing.
The front parts form a beautiful bust and give some insight between (You will know what I mean, when I 'll show you some pictures within the next days).
You can find a basic pattern file (PDF and SVG) to download on the pattern page.
When working with this pattern, take care to adjust the length of all parts to your needs (they are not aligned in the pattern file). Proud Plum is a little bit shorter on the front than on the back. Also take the width of the ruffles (cut from 5cm wide latex rings) into account.
I added small victorian cut trimmings to most of the seams (see on second image) and edges.
Cruel Cobal China is based on an idea by JeyOh Photography to transfer the patterns of the widely known Blue Onion Porcelain (the German name is "Zwiebelmuster") to a set of latex undies.
The basic ornaments are always similar and represent a couple of Chinese flowers and fruits with individual meanings. Here's a brief history of the design in case you are interested.
I extracted the patterns from a photo and vectorized them using inkscape (find the SVG and PDF on the pattern page). Then I transfered the patterns (or parts of them) to adhesive labels, stuck them onto 0,35mm blue latex and cut them out using my small scissors. The pieces then were glued to the panties made from 0,35mm white latex.
I also attached a shell cut trimming along the edge to finish the look.
We are currently looking for models to shoot this design.
Here are the instruction for making your own Imperial Pasties:
1. Get the pattern from here: [SVG] [PDF] (The imperial emblem is a regular hexagon, so I cut the original emblem into 12 pieces and removed 3-4 degrees from each to create the final pattern.).
2. Print the pattern onto paper (see step 4) and also onto a self-adhesive label. Adhere the label onto a piece of 0.35mm white latex (top left).
3. Cut the emblem along the outline using a cutter or scissors (top right). Be patient and precise ;-)
4. When finished cutting (bottom left) attach the label side of the emblem to the paper print using some paper glue. This avoids shifting when the emblem is glued to the black latex (bottom right). Note: The imperial emblem is symetric, so the paper print does not need to be mirrored.
5. Glue the latex side of the emblem onto a piece of 0.35mm black latex (top).
6. Cut along the outer edge leaving a small black border of 1-2mm (bottom left).
7. Finally cut from the center of the emblem along one edge of the white part and glue the overlapping black behind the emblem to create the cone form.
8. Wash, oil and enjoy the finished pasties (bottom right).
When you are done, send a photo of your pasties to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can show our tribute to the dark side. Go MacKenzie!

Here are the final images (in case you have seen the previews on tumblr) from Elena shooting zitronenröllchen custom latex wear. It was a great pleasure to work with her showing my latest two designs. JeyOh also did an amazing job shooting really cool photos. I hope you all like them.
I have a couple of latex circles as leftovers from making ruffles. Time to convert them into some little latex roses.
1. The circles are cut out from 0.35mm bubblegum latex with an outer diameter of 8cm. I cut out a second circle in the middle of the larger one with a diameter of 4.5cm. This leaves a ring of latex ca. 1.7cm wide (top left).
2. I cleaned both sides with latex cleaner and applied latex milk to both the inner and outer edge of the front and back side. I also cut the ring into two halves for two roses (top right).
3. The next step looks tricky but isn't. I glued the outer circumference onto the inner one to create a ca. 8mm wide strip like the one on the picture (bottom left).
4. I rolled this irregular strip from one end to the other (bottom right).
5. The folded side of the rolled strip now looks similar to a little rose. I applied additional latex milk to the loose end and glued it in a way that the fold goes down to the bottom of the rose (top left).
6. I cut out little leaves from 0.35mm jade green latex (bottom left).
7. Finally I glued the leaves to the bottom of the roses (right).
I would like to see other types of latex flowers. So please send me photos and/or instructions of your creations.
