@ Wasteland 20 year anniversary
For the Wasteland party 20 year anniversary we have gotten the opportunity to set up a three hour lasting Japanese rope bondage installation, performance art if you will.
For this RopeMarks joined forces with two Japanese riggers Hibiki and Amrita and we got the Dutch crème de la crème of the fetish model scene, DutchDame, Abraxas, Haas, Nikki Flames and Kim OnArt and as icing on the cake a top Japanese model, Karen Mai.
This was a though experience for all the models involved, some of them have been tied for close to the full duration of the installation and handled it without complaints and still asked for more afterwards... what more can you want as a rigger?
We have condensed the three hour video of the installation in, roughly, half an hour while keeping the "soul" of the installation alive.
Since setting up an installation of this size cannot be done without some rehearsal, we've also included images of our rehearsal time.
Did you know: BNN, one of the big Dutch televison networks was present to film this installation and we got to play with the sexy host of the program. More here http://www.ropemarks.com/media/television.
The update on Club RopeMarks
with Wiltdties and Red Sabbath
Some time ago already (2013!) Wildties and Red Sabbath visited the Netherlands, an opportunity we could not let pass by:
We spend some time together including a nice Japanese (*duh*) dinner.
Christmas time... that is usually that time of the year... *uhm*, that we here at RopeMarks HQ get a changes to get rid of our backlog of the past year. At least, that is what we say this year, what we said last year and the year before that and... Well, you get the point right? It just does not happen...
Our last update on Club RopeMarks, awesome as it is, is was produced in 2011(!) and we have photo and video sets going back to 2007(!) that we still think are worth posting. We have sets going back to 2002 that we have not shared with you, but we have to draw a line somewhere and that line is quality, so 2007 it is.
This year however got me thinking, why do we need a backlog, what is so special about what we want to share with you about our way of live that can't be done within a reasonable timeframe? Well, first of all, we still need to have a day job to pay the bills since you cheapskates are not willing to pay what we think we are worth :) therefore we produce way more than we have time to process. Second, and this dawned on my trying to get through some of our backlog, we have so many images that have a complete story behind them and we love to share that story... given time.
Since our enthousiasme in producing does not allow for much extra time we thought to give you a number of photo's with stories and leave it up to your imagination as to what it might be. As a welcome addition this brings a nice dent in our backlog.
Curious to see what stories you think are behind the images? leave 'm in the comments :)
The amazing DutchDame is ready to party... if wasn't for her leg tied in a futomomo, her wrists shackled together with leather cuffs and her feet in sky-high ballet boots.
Not much left other then to open those bottles and make the most of the time in bondage...
Did you know: Images from this set have been used on the Boudoir Bizarre party flyer (http://www.ropemarks.com/media/flyers) and one image from this set graced the cover of German leading scene magazine Schlagzeilen (http://www.ropemarks.com/media/magazines).

the awesome Hibiki
Before we publish the full fledged review of the previous Dominatrix, EuroPerve and Wasteland (all three *beyond* kick-ass events!) we want to take a moment and thank Hibiki-sama!
Hibiki and her staff have been attending all three events and whenever she is in Amsterdam we have a lot of fun. When she left again last time she really surprised us with a number of gifts:
It looks like we will be doing an awesome shoot soon with a theme that leaves no one guessing :)
Also, we need to brush up on our Japanese since we got a copy a Hibiki's book "Hibikism".
Here's a few more shots from Hibiki's last visits to Amsterdam.
Thank you Hibiki for everything and we hope to see each other soon.
Now two months ago already my girl went on a short tour through Europe. Unfortunately I was unable to attend and on one of her stops, the Luxuria party in Hungary, I was given a gift by Carn Ned. My girl took it home for me and from Amsterdam we thank you! *awesome*
Although I am a little concerned about how well spread the knowledge about me "having a bottle" at parties is?
Now: off to buy a razor...
From time to time we get published here and there and when we are aware of the publication we let you know about on our "In the Media" section on the RopeMarks site.

with Daisy Bells
Today we are doing Daisy, our pretty blond, sideways - a kataashi yokozuri, since girls need to have their legs spread, as often as possible...
In good RopeMarks style we love to dress our girls up in appropriate fetish attire. Our submissive Daisy gets to wear a tight, wide, restricting, rubber collar and a pair of I-won't-be-walking-any-time-soon balletheels.
Who needs bondage when your naked collared girl is struggling for every activity that you demand from her? Well... we do... So, Daisy is tied up, put down, pulled up from the floor by ropes alone and left swinging back and forth for us to enjoy.
Our Daisy is a pretty face, but under RopeMarks' control that really has no value. We decide to reduce her to the submissive flesh she is too us. We use our tenugiu to seriously gag her, Japanese style and remove her sight. This covers her face completely only leaving her blond hair out swinging along with her swaying body suspended from ropes alone...
We lead an awesome life!

Perhaps we should be captioning these images instead of me telling you how negotiations went:
But, but, but it was just going to be rope bondage...
A tied and collared girl is a happy girl
