York – Magic Goes Wrong

For our wedding anniversary a few months ago we decided to get each other tickets to see Magic Goes Wrong at the Theatre Royal in York. Mrs Loons went up on the train earlier in the day as she was having a light lunch with a friend, so I did my day’s work and thenContinue reading “York – Magic Goes Wrong”

Achievement unlocked

I’m not going to say my three new piercings are painless, or didn’t hurt, because they really did hurt! They’re all 1.2mm so they’ll take a nice range of body piercing jewelry. I didn’t realise that all three are cartilage piercings! Oh. They look good with the leather! I think I’m finished now with theContinue reading “Achievement unlocked”

Strap yourself in… This is amusing!

So yesterday I suited up to take some outdoor pics of me in my full leather suit. I’ve become somewhat of a recluse just lately, especially since getting my own decent sized unit which I can store and wear all my gear in. Now the problem is that one of the woodlands I used toContinue reading “Strap yourself in… This is amusing!”

Over eleven years apart!

Back in 2010 I took these photos in my, at the time, newly assembled leather suit. Today, I recreated one of them and did a bit of fancy processing. This is the result.

Winter’s Coming

Ok, I’ll come clean. I’ve never actually watched much Game of Thrones. It’s all a bit too killy for me – I prefer my TV a little more gentle (unlike my music, as you well know, which I like to be aggressive and thoughtful). Those of you who have followed my blog for a numberContinue reading “Winter’s Coming”

Something wonderful has happened.

I now have some leather shirts! They were ordered in error by a contact and couldn’t be returned, so they have ended up with me. There’s also a green one but I’m finding it difficult to photograph. It throws the white balance out on my camera. I must say I’m rather pleased!

Ooooh shiny!

So ASOS knows me exactly. They sent me an advert on Facebook and it was for a high shine suit. I had to buy! It’s arriving this week. The only worry I have is that it says in the reviews “runs small” and “no stretch on the fabric” on the sizing and even though I’mContinue reading “Ooooh shiny!”

Felt like I needed this.

I’ve not worn my leather suit in ages, possibly more than a month. I had a load of certificates to find on my servers so I was going to be an hour or more – I’d just been for a really long bike ride so I was sweaty as hell too. So I had aContinue reading “Felt like I needed this.”

Autumn is here!

I have dragged the leather back out of the wardrobe. This next few days (ironically when I’m booked to go to Alton Towers) the temperature is set to drop into single digits. At least I am going to Alton Towers though. It did look sketchy earlier this week with increased lockdowns. Now let’s pray theyContinue reading “Autumn is here!”
