Overview

Welcome to the RopeMarks newsletter.

We will briefly describe what we have been up to since our last newsletter and about interesting upcoming events where you can meet, greet and talk to us.

The last month of the year, usually a period with less activity due to the holiday season, not here at RopeMarks HQ. In the final month of this year we provided two shows, a handful of private tuition, particpated in the creation of a new party flyer, added new designs to our shop and ended the year in a photographic bang. As an extra we updated our websites with a lot of material from the past year (catching up!).

We provided two shows, one for the best underground fetish party and one during a big fetish birthday party. Read more in the here, in the shows section. Do you want RopeMarks at your party or event? Contact us, it's that simple.

The last period we provided a handful of private tuition's and, as the name implies, they are private. But we have more workshop information in the workshop section below. Do you want RopeMarks at your party or event? Contact us, it's that simple.

Our red bubble store has two new very cool designs, one is the RopeMarks name in Kanji and one is a design by Manolo le Cokin based on one of our photo's also incorporating the new kanji. We love it, go see for your self in the section below.

The new flyer for the best underground fetish party the Netherlands has to offer, Boudoir Bizarre, features our handywork, beautifully captured by Choralone photography. Go see in the media section below.

Last but not least, we are ending this year in a photographic bang using RopeMarks' own bimbo arienh. Words are not needed when we have some previews for you.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

 

Let's dive into the details of what we've been up to:

Photoshoots

We decided to close the year with a photographic bang and used our own bimbo, arienh, for some serious sessions where she is put in her rightful place as an obedient slavegirl to be used and abused at our discretion and and had a few very talented photographers, KinkyStyle, Chris Hammer and CarmineWorx, capture the result.


Even suffering through some serieus kinbaku she remains a perfect little doll

Sometimes we make arienh believe she is more than an object and create some pretty picture.

Her looks may be pretty, but she's still no more than flesh at our disposal...

Shows

During Netherlands best underground fetish party, Boudoir Bizarre, we performed... I played a very heavy session involving rope (duh!), a rock and some serious candle wax (can't go wrong with candle wax). My willing subject on the receiving end of my perverted actions was the bondage-loving (albeit slightly naïef) sweetheart spring.

The end of the year is also the period that our good friend Mrs.Manita is throwing her birthday party. This year she decided to throw her birthday bash on the ShowBoat and to add some extra spice in the form of entertainment. RopeMarks provided the closing show with a birthday bang performing a Japanese rope bondage show that got a few oooohs and aaaaahs from the audience. It makes us very happy if the audience and in this case particulary Mrs.Manita is appreciating our activity. Again: happy birthday sweety! xXx (pictures will come soon)

 


 

In other news, we have been adding videos and pictures from almost all of our 2017 shows to the RopeMarks site and are still working on the rest (and skipping the shows where no pictures have been taken). because of our own curiosity and need for stats we've also been doing some math, and the end of the year is also about lists right?

In 2017, in addition to our other activities, we have been doing fifteen (16!) shows. Most of these have been in the Netherlands (where we are located) but two have been in Italy, two in Germany and one in Belgium.

Now, just looking at the number of shows, sixteen (16!) that might not sound as much, but that means at least one show a month. Also, we only repeated one show four times that means we produced and performed twelve (13!) new shows in 2017... Even thinking about this, the creative process, the rehearsals, the prop-collecting, the light-program, music making and what have you... Perhaps it is time to slow down a bit? Share more (i.e. workshops and intensive weekends)? What do you think?

go and take a look for yourself

Workshops

The past period we provided a handful of private tuition's and, as the name implies, they are private.

In other RopeMarks Ryu news, regularly during masterclasses, workshops and/or weekends we get or create a memento. This can be anything ranging from a bottle of good wine or, discreet, photo's or video's from the masterclass, workshop and/or weekends. These memento's we "file" under the RopeMarks Ryu impressions. We've updated this section of the site with most memento's we have/received the past year.

go look and enjoy.
