What is a Fetish, exactly? Well, the dictionary definition is thus: a form of sexual desire in which gratification is linked to an abnormal degree to a particular object, item of clothing, part of the body, etc. “a man with a fetish for surgical masks” Yeah, you can get things to cater to that particular whim in Second Life. You can find pretty much every fetish catered to across the grid, and you’ll find some of them amply represented at THE FETISH FAIR. Now, truth be told, I don’t think I have any fetishes unless you count an acute longing for a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake, but there’s nothing sexual in that. (In fact, I dare say a good slice of Victoria Sponge could be considered better than five minutes of lustful behaviour in some quarters; wash it down with a mug of PG and I’m sold but anyway, I digress..)I’m not into fetishized behaviour, but I can appreciate that some people are and I do understand the impact that fetish culture has made on fashion and lifestyle in the modern age. Corsets have gone from being mere undergarments to being perhaps the most easily accessible (and adaptable) item of fetish wear, and there are plenty to be found at the event. There genuinely is something for everyone, but I really liked this corset from WONDERLOST that I picked up at the event. I like the contrast leopard print at the front (it always has to be leopard print, you should know that by now!) and the straps on the thighs. I paired it with a mask that I found and naturally had to have; this is the cat mask from BITCH FACTORY that is available at the event. I like the open structure of this, and it looks like it would sit very well with the haute couture crowd. I have to go back to FETISH FAIR 2016 because it was busy and I’m sure I’ve missed loads of stuff (correction, I KNOW that I have, check out Seraphim’s coverage HERE) but I was pretty sure I fancied a change from boots to go with this look. Lucky for me then that GLAMISTRY released some excellent heels that can easily adapt themselves to a fetish theme. The ‘Camilla’ heels feature eyelets and cords that actually give a shibari feel, and even though aren’t sold at the event they’re a perfect match. I chose mine to match and perfectly coordinate with my outfit; styling them in black with matching cords and adding a red Laboutinesque sole. The little suede tag on the cord can also be coloured to suit your whim and is ever so suggestive of a blindfold. The fact that they’re even called ‘Camilla’ fills my head with images of dominatrix galore…If there was ever a pair of shoes designed to make you utter the phrase “Yes, Mistress!” these would be it I think!
