I can’t believe I’m having to write that summer’s almost over. Wasn’t it February and I was having surgery like two weeks ago? Is this what getting older feels like? I don’t know if I like it.
But you know what I do like? (Besides excellent segways, obviously.)
The movie Promare.
If you haven’t seen Promare, it’s by Trigger — probably one of my favourite animation houses, they just keep doing things that I adore. (Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill, Promare, Cyberpunk Edgerunners) If you’ve seen Kill La Kill, you’ll be well prepared for the complete breakneck insanity pace that it has.
I actually made Lio almost four years ago, just after the movie came out. (So like a year ago in my brain, because time has become immaterial since the panini.) And somehow I still think he’s one of the best things I’ve made! I see some things I would probably do differently now, but he still looks amazing.
(On a related latex note: I would fucking perish to make something else from Kill La Kill now that I’m so much better at Latex. UGH. Someone fund this for me, lol.)
He’s all latex, with a sneaky little zip in the back that I make some good use of! And should probably make some more use of it in the future … Maybe a video, at some point? I’ll have to consider.
Of course, I didn’t just shoot one Lio look for you! I would never do that to you. I did two more, and I have a few more still in my closet that I need to pull out and take some photos of!
For now, I really wanted to show off something I found that just automatically felt so Lio, without any adjustment:
And don’t worry yourself for a second — that bikini top is not really a part of the outfit. Just something to make the social media overlords slightly less angry at me. (I hope, I’m really tired of being shadow banned on everything!)
Now, the studio I shot those two looks in doesn’t love nudity, so I only managed to sneak in proper full nudity in the full look with the zipper … but don’t worry, I absolutely shot more nudes in this outfit. How could I not? Look at it!
Did I mention it’s also the month of Bisexual Lighting, which happens to be my favourite kind of lighting! Wonder why.
We continue to attempt to find ways so skirt the social media algorithms, and I’ve gotta say — this might be my favourite so far! I bought this nylon catsuit for another character, but I’m sort of obsessed with layering it under lingerie now. I think I might need more colours!
And maybe a closed crotch one. Not that I’m complaining in general, but for safe for instagram photos, it was a little difficult!
Maybe more colours of the open crotch ones too. I think I’ve been convinced.
Now for something completely different — say goodbye to the bisexual colours for a hot second. Don’t miss them too much, I’m sure they’ll be right back the second I have any excuse for it again.
But we’ll take a brief aside to another particularly fine look.
This is actually my look that I wear to weddings! (I have a pretty good track record of wearing a shirt and mostly keeping my pants done up at weddings, though.) Also, all of the pieces were bought separately, none of it’s actually supposed to go together. Crazy, right?
I actually also shot another look — it’s a little something I haven’t done in a bit, same wig, similar makeup, different look, same day! But it looks like I’m mostly out of days in the month, so we’ll see whether I can slide it in, or it’ll be just a little kiss of summer for September? Keep your eyes peeled, we’ll see if I manage to squeeze it in or not!
