rm20060723_1850It’s done, it was great and we are so doing it again next year! 🙂 BoundCon III was one bondage-roller-coaster ride. We already thanked Erotix for what they did for us and for the scene by putting this event together. Andreas, the big (litterly:) engine behind Erotix and the BoundCon organisation can be seen in the photo on the right (white shirt, looking down on Chantal).

rm20060723_1856So, what went down on BoundCon III for us, first of all we had our own stand. Here we performed regular demonstrations and shows. People could freely browse our websites (RopeMarks, Club RopeMarks and R.A.R.E.) ask questions and in general get to meet the people behind RopeMarks. What surprised us most of all was that a lot of people actually where interested in us :).

On the first and third day of the fair I was scheduled for a so called custom photo shoot, here is the explanation from the BoundCon site as to what this ment: Up to 6 photographers at a time have the opportunity to photograph 1-2 models bound and positioned to their liking for one full hour. This takes place in an especially equipped side room, far away from the hustle and bustle of the fair. An experienced bondage master will help you fulfill your wishes. Some of the shoots will have themes, others have no theme and adjust to the wishes of the photographer…

rm20060721_4304The custom photo shoot of the first day was with Melanie, she is a German model who only works for Erotix. It was an honor that I was given the opportunity to work with her. She is an easy going, experienced model that is just fun to work with.


rm20060723_4992The third day I was scheduled for a custom photoshoot with Yvette Costeau and Jill Diamond. We’ve already worked with Jill before but never with Yvette. Jill is very much fun to work with (she can’t stop giggling 🙂 and Yvette turned out to be a very relaxed model to. The entire scene turned out more hot (and I don’t mean temperature!) than I initially intended.

rm20060722_4702On the second day we had our main stage show and something completely unexpected happened. Way before our show started the area before the stage was completly filled to the max. Ofcourse we expected a number of people to watch but this number of people… Nobody was able to pass anymore. The show itself went very good and afterwards a lot of people came to the stand or stopping us on the fair to compliment us on the show. Very nice to experience this sort of appreciation for the thing we love so much.

One of the fun things about BoundCon is that we can do bondage all the time, anytime, everytime! And we did, we did a lot of play and demo’s in our own stand.
