Luc Latulippe, Designer, Illustrator, animator for the Wild and Wondrous side of this week’s Wacky Wednesday.

Ok, so how else was I going to get more of your attention if I didn’t make my feature image a little saucy? Luc Latulippe, artist extraordinaire, is another talented individual under the sheets of Vancouver’s hotbed of talent. In his words “starting out in animation 20 years ago,” he now also “works as a designer, illustrator and artist having contributed hundreds of illustrations to magazines, newspapers, and creative agencies across Canada, the US, Hong Kong, and parts of Europe.”

His work embodies humour for the modern adult using lines that are crisp and clean, with bold solid colours to produce eye catching results. Some would say quirky, others bizarre, but for all who appreciate his talent the end result is not only a new found appreciation, but a smile across a face.

Cleavage and Plunging Décolletage, That’s What’s Sexy This Week.

loren_mansfield_Cleavage_Plunging_Décollatage_Sexy_This_Week

The sensuous line and curves the cleavage beholds of the plunging décollatage, that’s what’s sexy this week.

Wikipedia defines Cleavage as the exposed area between a woman’s breasts lying over the sternum, and refers only to what is visible with clothing (or dense, nontransparent body art) that includes a low-cut neckline, the décolletage. Yes, this a shameless ditty about the titty on display, because a little or a lot of objectification can go a long way.

Manga Dolls by Youtsuki, for Wild and Wondrous of Wacky Wednesday

manga-dolls-youtsuki-arts-culture-velvetsteele-1

Manga figures by Youtsuki are something to behold! We know I love my dolls especially when they are the ultra detailed fashionable type that Silkstone Barbie put’s out, or Marina Bychkova of Russia. To name a few.

However these dolls just quite literally came across my path during my travels in cyber space, and with no details about the artist/creator. Of course I had to dig, and dig deep, still coming up with virtually nothing except a book on WATTPAD that details each doll that’s been created, with a complete character profile. “Own Characters” by Youtsuki, it’s an interesting read, profiles that breathe new life into each and every one of them.

We know I love my fetish, and over on Flickr, Youtsuki has a detailed assortment on display for your eager eyes. From boudoir babes, what looks like the body of a stylized Vampirella, stylized french maids in varying poses, sexy nurses, and one of my own faves the office bitch, who could also pass for a college girl. Even the cute “rabit”. Most are labelled with numbers and symbols, but you’ll find their names listed in the book after some diligent cross checking.

His and Her Pedicure for Sexy This Week

sexy-this-week-63-his-and-her-pedicures-1

There’s fun to be had in his and her pedicures. Couples spending time together, enjoying each other’s company, sharing a laugh, or an uncontrolled giggle from a foot massage, and the application of a daring shade of polish on his, and her toes. His and her pedicures that’s what sexy this week.

In today’s age, the so called “modern age” women have been getting pedicures since most of us can remember. However it is noted that it wasn’t until the year 2000 that the pedicure started to grow in popularity. Mostly amongst the women and a few daring men, brave enough to roll up their trousers and show just how much of a man he truly is by letting a complete stranger get to work prettying up those feet and toes.

My Biggest Fear

west-end-sex-workers-memorial

During a recent writing exercise for a performance project in which I was involved, each of us was asked to write about our biggest fear. Not much, does scare me as I’ve learned to be strong, but sometimes that little bug can get under your skin and stay there forever. Like everyone else on the planet, I’m a person to, with emotions and feelings and my steely cold reserve is just my defence mechanism of a, believe it or not, painfully shy person.

This is mine, this is what I wrote.

Gus Modeste for the Wild and Wondrous Side of Wacky Wednesday

Gus-Modeste-Dead-Within

Gus Modeste for the Wild and Wondrous Side of Wacky Wednesday is certainly an artist to behold.

I meet a lot of people in life and travels, some that are quite clearly characters in their own right, some full of hot air with egos just as full, and some, just super modest. Gus Modeste is just such a person and I’m not sure if his last name is a play on words, but I’m willing to run with it. We met on Instagram and I’ve been intrigued ever since.

I didn’t now this, but after a little homework I learned that he is a very well known artist, not only for his detailed carving, but equally so in his talent and lust for painting. Gus-Modeste-3 His work is easily recognizable with his attention to every little detail, clean lines and ever stunning expressions in all of his carvings. Gus-Modeste-1 Whether traditional or contemporary, he is just as professional and passionate  as a First Nations Master artist

The Pretty Little Leaf

Pretty Red Little Leaf

The Pretty little leaf is what’s sexy this week!

There I was, shit, showered and shaved, dressed and ready for the day, over my morning anxiety with my “kick ass” attitude dialed in at a level ten as I went out the door to face the day. My clothes perfectly coordinated of complimentary colours, matching jewelry, makeup applied with the precision of surgeon, and my hair all neatly hot-rollered and set. I was ready! With chin held high, shoulders back, tits out, and stomach in, I walked to the bus stop to patiently wait with all the other morning riders.

On the bus, I made myself comfortable for the 15 minute ride to the skytrain reading the morning paper as we rode over the bumps and potholes that dotted the downtown streets of beautiful Vancouver; the city I call home. The bus’s arrival at the skytrain always greats me with a certain amount of irony, its the skytrain, but at this juncture it runs underground. It always gives me a brief moment of contemplation as I descend to the train’s platform quietly crop dusting as I make my way deeper into the ground.

The Male Chest in a Fitted Dress Shirt, That’s Whats Sexy This Week!

I’m not one to shy away from shameless exploitation of the sexes, especially if it’s all in good fun. As we slowly ebb into fall, all those beach bodies on glorious flagrant display are opting to modestly disappear behind the opaque barriers of fabric. With the fall, comes the addition of clothes for the creatures of the beach, setting the stage for a new form of ogling to take place.

The male chest in a well fitted dress shirt, that’s what sexy this week.

I love the cut of a well tailored dress shirt and the way it fits the body. The buttons, the cuffs and collar, yoke, colours and patterns, sewn together to form the garment worn for business, casual, or a hot night out. Well pressed and starched to lay smooth across a well defined chest and dutifully conceal the results of long hours at the gym.

PODCAST with Mark Hughes on Pulling the Trigger

Hear me talk the TRUTH about life, love, happiness and how I got here. I talk of sex work, gender, employment, and my life as an activist as one of Vancouver’s fave transsexuals. I had the extreme pleasure to speak with Mark Hughes of Pulling the Trigger in the lead up to PRIDE. What a pleasure to actually express my opinion, something that has gotten me into some trouble, but I don’t truly care. To be a woman with all the right parts for me. It needs to be said. Some of you may like what I have to say, and some won’t……

 

 

Penis bleaching…..

pipedream-ceramix-no6-dildo-black-white_wacky_wednesday_ penis_bleaching

Penis bleaching….. Well here you have it folks the latest out of Thailand. Something else I came across in my travels through internet space I thought worth sharing.

Yes for quite some time anal bleaching has been favoured by many thinking that their lovable and or loved “bullet wound” is just not the right shade and have resorted to the use of lasers,  creams, lotions and potions to get that desired shade.

Vanity has taken many forms, and people go to great “lengths” to obtain that ideal, and I’m no stranger to going under the knife or laser. As a person who has experienced a great many treatments, I have to say there are some that are flat out snake oil concoctions and procedures that I reserve my right to have those opinions. Just ask me, I‘ll tell you what I think.
