So last Saturday night I went to the rubber ball. The rubber ball, if you have never been is an annual event at which people usually don their most outrageous outfit and go look sexy for the evening, there is some dungeon room play, and some exhibitions and shows (acts - like fashion shows and burlesque). My friend's ex did a fantastic fan dance, one of the DJs seemed to be raiding my record collection and one woman spontaneously entertained us all with an incredibly athletic pole dance. But mostly people are just parading around, chatting and dancing a little. This year the outfits were on the whole pretty damned good! One woman had a head to toe one piece rubber hobble dress with a complete hood and an extravagant headdress, she looked amazing. A couple of girls went in just high heels and masks (did I mention that it was a masked ball?), and our comment about them was... "well if you've got it, flaunt it" they had it! There were corsets and tight rubber outfits all over the place. In fact there were so many wonderful outfits there that it was almost tiring checking them all out. Sadly the venue, as in previous years, was just not right and this stopped the evening from reaching greatness. There were thin staircases and choke points where people had to squeeze past or just wait. But we still had a great time, met some interesting new people, and got to stare at beautiful people in interesting outfits all night. I can't complain. But now that night is over with, I shall have to just wait until the next antichrist or crimson night... or christmas for a slightly different style of fun.
