Guilty as Sin

In December of last year i ventured over to London to attend a Club Rub party. It was there that i met Eudalia who i consider to be a very good friends. Actually she's more like a sister. So much so that i invited her over for a weekend in Amsterdam. We could not have planned it better as her free time blended so perfectly with mine.

It's not what you know, it's who you know that makes a great many things in life just so perfect.
Never was a saying more so than at last nights "Guilty As Sin" party (part of the Absolute Kink weekend) here in decadent Amsterdam. http://www.absolute-kink.com/verboten/index.htm

The party was held at one of my favorite Amsterdam clubs, that being the COC. Unfortunately this was the last ever party to be held here due to funding issues.
The club was decorated by my friends Arjan & Wim of On The Edge fame http://www.edge-dance.nl
Just a pity that there weren't as many people in attendance as the organisers had probably hoped for. My guess is that this party was held too near Easter and last weekends extravaganza in Essen, Germany http://www.fetishevolution.com
Shame really as all they needed were another 200 people & they would have opened the upstairs bar as well.

I was most impressed to see that 99% of the people in attendance were actually dressed in Fetish attire with an abundance of Latex wearers in attendance. Also that there were a mere handful of the type who consider a fetish party to be a place where they can get away with leather trousers & naked tops normally associated with the more Dance oriented Wasteland or The Clinic. With a little more careful planning i am sure that this event could be Hollands answer to The Skin Two Rubber Ball weekend. The other unfortunate issue is that i was unable to chronical what we were all wearing as there was a ban on taking personal photographs. A pity the organisers didn't see sense to put this on the ticket or the website as i could have done with the extra space in my handbag for some lollipops for us all.

I'm thankful that Eudalia & i decided to stay at the party rather than go to Cyberia with Sasha, Isabelle & Alex (who didn't appear to be enjoying themselves) as i finally got to talk to Kristal & Pim. Apparently they had seen me from affar at other parties but had not had the opportunity to meet until now. Fortunately we all got on like a house on fire and had a really great evening.
A big hello to my friends (old & new) Yazamin (Model & Photographer wearing Army gear), Mistress Hellena (with Chambers in West Yorksire, England where i'm originally from), Nadja ( an acquaintance from Koeln) and last but not least the famous and very approachable Kummi.

Not much on the party front (for me) until Amora on May 12 but ii hope i can think of something else to do before then as do enjoy a good party!!!!

Early start to the weekend

The weekend started early with Dinner at my place with 2 (GG) friends coming round for dinner. They were late, something about heavy traffic coz of the rain. Nevertheless we made the best of it and had a great night first at Transgender queer night called Uischot a Cafe Sappho followed by an afterparty at The Winston Hotel playing Electrorated music which i have to say was pretty awfull.

Saturday was the night i'd been waiting for as i couldn't make it to the last party due to situations out of my control.
As ever the party was held in what may have been an old building but the club is now called Goliath. I wonder what it was used for in the past?

The dresscode for this party is the same as ever, but you just have to use your own interpretation and let your imagination run wild as the possibilities are endless. Nevertheless it is important to note that the vast majority of people were in costumes of era's gone, Edwardian and Victorian being most prevalent except the beauty of it all was that everyone was masked. I admit that my mask was pretty crap but that's because i spent the previous week making the bustle i wore. See the pics in the Gallery.

I was captivated by the music of Courtesan who made an all too brief appearance on stage. Ok so much of the lyrics were in Dutch nevertheless the use of background imagry, costume, Voices and musical instruments made the experience quite unforgettable. I'll see if i can find a CD of their music.

Great seeing everyone again, Medusa (of course), Sasha, Isabelle, Allen, Annaconda, Piet, Valerio and some others who names i forget. Had an interesting chat with Petra of www.Ateliercherubijn.nl who had a stall selling masks. All of which she makes herself; a very talented girl. A big hello to her tireless mum who was there too.

Medusa reckoned that there were less people here than normal (probably because of Easter) but in my mind the numbers were just right as the last thing you need is to keep bumping into people. Apologies to the girl who's toes i stepped on in my New Rock's, gawd that must've hurt, let me massage it better.

Anyway the pics from the party are now in the Gallery so go take a peek and see if you're there. Let me know if you want any pics and i'll send you the originals.

Next weekend it's Guily as Sin.

Relationships

Re Heads & Tails i met a very nice person at the On The Edge Fetish party. Unfortunately she fell in love with me before we got a chance to get to know each other.
Backtracking a couple of years i did the same to another TG & now i know how it feels to be on the receiving end of such attention. It's downright scary!!!!
Ok so it's flattering to know that there are people out there who like me enough to fall in love but it's going to take someone really special for me to let down my guard. The girl in question (& yes she is a girl) is very genuine & has a lot of love to give to the right person. She's very accepting of me but i have nothing to give her. I'm so sorry for leading her on. Unfortunately for her i am not that person and probably never will be as we walk different sides of the track. All that what i have written here is what we discussed last night and so there's nothing new for her to read.

As for my future and direction in life well life goes on and i have much to do, many people to meet and a great many parties to attend.

NEXT!!!!
