I had ordered a particular outfit for Halloween from my "favorite' latex supplier, which was supposed to be delivered on Oct 3, however it never showed up and LatexCatfish opted not to reply to any of me emails and ignore me for a month because they were embarrassed that they forgot my order. 

However they graciously offered me free shipping on my NEXT order for all my troubles. How unbelievably kind of them. I can tell they are riddled with guilt over it. 

No worries, I decided to wear one of the previous costumes that I had not yet worn out; The Talon costume. So I packed it up and off to LA to go to the Miss Kitty's party. But when I go to try on the suit again, i realize that the latex shine (Pjur Shine) has caused all the seams to loosen up on the costume and it starts coming apart at the seams. First the gloves, then the air plugs on the inflatable head, then the sleeves on the catsuit. I realized there was no way I could keep this thing together, regardless of my frantic on-the-spot repairs.

I was done. I packed up my things, left the hotel and drove home. 

I feel at this point I should withdraw my recommendation of Latex Catfish products. This last fiasco is just another example of how little attention they pay to detail and how paying less isn't always better. After my last order, I thought they had it together but I've realized that the few good suits they have made for me does not make up for the endless days of frustration I have spent trying to fix issues with other orders, or shipping problems, etc. 

If you wish to purchase from then, do so at your own risk. Do not mention my name and when your suit falls apart the 2nd time you wear it, don't blame me. I apologize if my recommendation caused anyone any grief.

IT manager by day, latex fetishist at night. I enjoy designing unusual latex costumes. I don't make them myself, I typically have to farm the actual work to a professional. I have picked up a few skills and have learned to do some modifications on my own, mostly due to manufacturers not seeing my vision. My designs are not elaborate but I feel they still have a certain elegance. Some of these are completely original designs, others are variations of designs I've seen elsewhere. Some are just my version of a super heroine costume.
I'm always looking for new ideas and enjoy meeting new people who share my interest. Please don't hesitate to send me a note or comment.

Yeah, it's been a long time...  I got a little frustrated and didn't post anything for a while but I do have some new stuff and have posted a few pics of them. Again, I'm still taking these pics by myself so the quality isn't as good as I like but i hope you still enjoy them. I still have more suits to photograph but because it's summer here, it's a bit too hot to model anything. Even my AC can't keep me cool enough for all the running back and forth it takes to photograph myself. 

My vendor seem to be a bit more responsive now and has even started posting some of my designs on the web site. I don't make anything off their sales but if you want to purchase one of my designs, feel free to go to www.latexcatfish.com. Their quality has drastically improved over the years and if you mention name (Jessica Black), you may get a 10% discount off their already extremely reasonable prices. 

However if you do decide to purchase something from them, PLEASE let me know so I can let them know you are a referral. I too get a small discount on my purchases for referring people so we both win if you let me know too. If you just mention my name, they may give the discount but I doubt they will notify me so please help me out so I can get even more of my ideas made into reality and post the results here. 

I am ALWAYS looking for comments and suggestions on how to improve my designs so please feel free to contact me and let me know what you think. It really does mean a lot to me to hear your input and ideas. The weirder the better and if you can draw it, you get brownie points!

I have an idea for something which I will post about in the next day or so. I hope you will come back and check my blog to see what it is. It involves prizes!

Very Cool. The Alien looks amazing but I am partial to the Stormtrooper.

Fancy seeing you here.  I definitely think you should go out for Halloween. Hollywood Boulevard would like you.   If this is not who I think this is, than apologies in advance if this is a case of mistaken identity.

You are really sensitive to when people leave for 2 minutes aren't you?

You're quite welcome! I enjoyed looking at them. Never met a real Space Girl before so if you ever want to chat, I'd totally be up for it.
