I went to a Halloween party over the weekend – unexpectedly – as I hadn’t planned to celebrate this year and had no costume. A friend of mine stopped by on Saturday afternoon and together we whipped together a somewhat sexy ghoulish outfit. Traditionally I go for the creepy or scary Halloween attire, but my friend insisted I still look hot. Good thing, as the party felt more like going to a fetish club than a Halloween bash. There was a lot of black leather and bondage and my worst fear was that Fifty Shades of Grey had become the running theme.
As it turned out, the S&Mers were quite authentic. I was surprised at how many people wore their fetishes proudly and comfortably and seemed to use the opportunity to dress-up as a way to display their art. It took a while for the music and cocktails to relax those partygoers not as familiar with that crowd (me included) but soon everyone was dancing and hobnobbing and by the end of the night it was difficult to tell whether the white bunny with the big boobs and oversized fluffy tail was really a mother of three or a Dom. It didn’t matter. A good time was had by all.
