We had a great day out at The London Alternative Market on Sunday we met up with old friends that we had not seen for some time and made some new friends too.
The London Alternative Market is a monthly event held in London on The Albert Embankment. You will find a great mix of people and a variety of stalls for fetish clothing, bondage equipment, implements of torture, violet wands, bespoke leather wear and more. A great friendly atmosphere with a bar and a hot food and snacks cafe upstairs perfect for socialising.
Leather Wear by The Ultimate Leather.
The Leather Wear is by The Ultimate Leather owned by Victoria Wilder a very skilled designer and leather seamstress making haute couture leather wear.
Victoria has personally made me a pair of leather trousers a leather skirt and a full length leather coat. All outstanding in workmanship and quality and have lasted for many years. The coat I have had for over 12 years and is still in perfect condition it comes out for every fetish club we attend as it is ideal for covering up when wearing very little underneath!
Victoria makes a variety of skirts, dresses, corsets, kilts, coats, jackets and more all made to measure. Nothing is mass produced and everything is an original adding very personal touches, your own choice of colorful silk lining, the type of buttons you prefer, how many pockets you want and the way you want something to fit. As an example for trousers, if you want low waisted, high waisted, straight leg, boot cut, combat style, jean style, flared; all things are possible and made to your requirements. Victoria will spend unlimited time with you just in your consultation talking about your requirements and painstakingly refining every aspect of your garment until it is just the way you want it to be.
The Leather used is of the highest quality, only the softest and most tactile skins are chosen being handpicked for its relevant purpose. The linings used are lush strong colours individual to your choice although they look very decorative they are durable and intend to be worn. Even the studs and zips are high quality and nothing is skimped on.
As a designer Victoria is very open to ideas and will do her best to accommodate your ideas into a design but also giving you the practicalities of how the garment will perform from her years of experience producing leather garments.
Victoria has been in business for over 20 years that I know of and supplies not only the fetish world but the normal straight world with beautiful leather garments all with a slightly unusual edge that makes them different to your run of the mill high street designs. You will find The Ultimate Leather at almost ever London Alternative Market Event. http://www.theultimateleather.co.uk/

Violet Wands By Nick and Morphia
A violet wand is a whole new sensory experience with added benefits and can give an amazing sensual experience - from very mild and tingly - to moderately zappy and prickly - to very intense indeed!
Violet Wands are a product of late Victorian technology and at the time utilised electricity in a totally new way, at the time these wonderful modern machines were used to treat a whole range of ailments or to create a sense of well being as an alternative to the medicine of the time. They were highly regarded and were amazingly popular, they were used by physicians and trained operatives. By the 1920's they were sold to the general public in their tens of thousands. By the 1950's with the advent of accessible modern medicine their popularity wained and they fell out of favor. However many alternative and holistic medical practitioners still use them today. They are also used in the cosmetics industry to treat the scalp improve skin tone over the face and treat acne.
The devices sold are mostly classic or vintage and have the power that many modern devices simply do not have . They are either fully restored or in their original pristine condition - and all are 100% fully working, extensively tested and very powerful
They give a new meaning to the word electro play and for this reason are very popular in the fetish world. Valued for their beauty and intricate design - they also attract the attention of the serious collector. There are small compact violet wands of say five attachments to huge cases containing twenty or more intricate and rare electrodes
Plus the glass electrodes are very visual - they glow either violet or orange with electric sparks striking the skin
When you buy from Nick and Morphia you can expect your violet wand to have been fully restored and extensively tested. It will be in very good to almost showcase condition - with an excellent range of power outputs and with all the glass electrodes fully working.
Compared to many modern violet wands, the ones from Nick and Morphia are more powerful and have a much larger range of electrodes and are a fraction of the price. http://www.nickandmorphia.com/
