    Default Copernic Summary:hair hood talc shampoo gear lube clean zips head

    Being a woman with longish hair I have wash my hair nearly everyday anyway but like the fact that I dont get gunk in it!

    I've been thinking about a ponytail-hood, but at the moment I'm living on a budget, so no more new gear for me anywhere in the near future.

    I use talc to store and put on my gear, but to put on my hood, I've found that smoothing back my hair with water, and a few drops of water in the hood, work great to put it on.

    It looks al frizzy, like all the natural shine had been absorbed by the hood (help -> vampire rubber)) Pantene is not an option, as I'm against animal testing)) Ive tried several shampoos and conditioners, but nothing really worked really purrfect..

    I used to use a joke-shop bald head (cost about 2 pounds) to protect my hair from zips, but there's no way around the problem that getting in a hood will cover your head in gak.

    THe solution is to pick a suitably mild and well formulated shampoo, and/or take off your gear in the shower.

    I like this last option, because you come out clean, and so does your gear; it's hard to do if you are not in an'out' household but to my mind there's nothing quite as nice as clean rubber - except of course, clean people!

    A quality zip-hood should not stress your hair, and will not need talc or lube.

    Recently I've been using Wet Platinum to lube/condition my latex and that leaves my (long) hair looking pretty good.

    Default Prevent eyeholes from misting up?

    Copernic Summary of old DISCUS postings on this topic (see full text & pictures in window below):
    ================================================== ======================

    Spit usually works, but also adjusting the mask.
    The result was my warm air breath was flowing out in to the upper part of the mask, interacting with the cool air outside and condensing.

    Being a biker and regularly suffering from misted up visors in the winter I use something that I was told about years ago but never bothered to try out until a couple of years ago.

    Just put a small spot on some kitchen roll and wipe it over the inside of the visor,as it dries just keep rubbing/polish the visor to prevent smears and thats it.

    It really does work and to date I haven't had a problem with soap in the eyes as long as you let it dry properly.

    Silicon is left on the inside of the glass from the manufacturing process and the toothpast removes it,(Some people burn it of using a lighter, not recomended for perspex of plastic).

    Hopefully Mistressannabel is merely referring to the thin, clear plastic commonly used in hoods.

    I have over three dozen hoods most in rubber but it's those misty little perspex eye holes that I find irritating; will be trying all the tips the hot weather at the moment in London will mean I can uber test all options!

    I've done a bit of diving, and the general consensus from the people I've met is plain old toothpaste.

    Apply dry, rub around until it covers the full transparent surface, then get it underwater and rub until it appears that all the toothpaste is gone.

    You can try the old swimmer's trick of a little saliva rubbed on the inside if the lenses, or use a small piece of raw potato and rub the insides of lenses with the potato.

    Disadvantage: loss of feeling of total enclosure.

    When applied properly to a glass or plastic window it can't stop the moisture from forming but it will cause it to reduce to micro beads and run off the coated surface leaving a very clear view.

    The humidity is increasing because the moisture cannot evaporate...it is trapped in a high humidity environment.

    Default Pony hoods

    Pony hoods
    Copernic Summary of old DISCUS postings on this topic (see full text & pictures in window below):
    ================================================== ======================

    Rubberbabe: The pony head is 'fur' covered- I have others that are smooth rubber on the outside.
    I switch them depending upon what I'm doing As Leinir points up- there are "furs" out there into rubber- the fur covered one is for those cons and walk-around (I write anthro novels and hence my attendence at those).

    This is an intermediate step in the construction of the hood.

    The eyes in the final pix are vacuformed and are open- but using clear plastic to provide outlines gives the impression that they are solid.

    Leinir- many thanks for the IRC stuff.

    One of the things that attracts me to rubber is the shine and the hood does seem to have a dull (lacking shine) look.

    I have lots of regular latex and rubber hoods but I'm partial to these; sort of a fetish within a fetish!

    Yes indeed, I make a number of rubber things- pony heads and buck heads (and designing a dragon now) among them.

    I do make custom stuff for folks from time to time and its designed to stand up to heavy action while at the same time is soft and rubbery for bed play.

    The pony in the pix, has a hair covering and a mane- I have others that are simply good ol' smooth rubber on the outside.

    It has been moved from the Regional Rubbering: People & Personals>> United States>> New Jersey area because of it's much broader interest.

    Posted on Friday, September 12, 2003 - 10:43 am GMT: I found several interesting (and cheap!) latex wigs simply by searching on "latex wig" in http://google.com

    For example, one of the sites Google found was http://www.chamberofhorrors.com/ I went to this site and inserted "latex wig" in their own little search engine and found several wigs. Here are some examples:



    Use this same search technique elsewhere. it seems like costume shops have quite a few latex wigs. Europeans, Aussie's & Kiwi's might try searching on http://google.co.uk, Yahoo or other more localized search engines. Searching on "Costumes" may also yield some interesting stuff, too.

    Incidentally, by searching on just "latex" on the smaller, internal search engines in these costume sites you will find all kinds of really cool stuff. The site above also had a complete "rental grade" Batman latex costume for about $350. They also had a "pseudo" gasmask for under $10.

    Good luck and happy latex hunting!

    Posted on Thursday, September 11, 2003 - 10:42 pm GMT: Hi,

    We are looking to buy a latex wig, which we think we have seen on the MarquisRDX website at some time <IMG SRC="http://www.rubberist.net/discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

    Here's a link which basically shows what we are looking for:

    Anyone sitting on some information on where to find more of the same kind? <IMG SRC="http://www.rubberist.net/discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

    Default Nostril Holes?

    Copernic Summary of old DISCUS postings on this topic (see full text & pictures in window below):
    ================================================== ======================
    Here in western canada I can get 3/8" diameter thin wall latex tubing by the foot at a number of the big box warehouse home improvement stores such as Home Depot, Revy /Rona etc., in the area where all the other flexible tubing is sold.
    This may be the same for the stores in your area.

    Without the eye holes, I do not think there would be sufficient oxygen.

    It would significantly limit my ability to do anything besides rest.

    I would prefer to avoid plastic if possible.

    you could go to the local home improvement place and buy some clear plastic tubing there.

    Make sure you cut the tubing straight, the edges might scratch the inside of your nose.

    Assuming you have one/some, an inch or so cut off the end may suit the hood, without causing problems to the inflator.

    I recently bought a hood with very small nostril holes, the main air flow is through the eye holes.

    Does anyone have a vendor in the US for the appropriate rubber tubing to go in the nostrils?

    I use some short pieces of latex medical tubing in my hood to fit up into my nostrils.

    They're all full hoods (i.e. none open-faced), of which one is inflatable with clear PVC eyes and breathing tube, and another is transparent latex with zipped eyes and mouth.

    They are both great, although if I'm in the mood, the inflatable one is best!

    Regarding buying tubing, rubber tube is available from www.mediquip.co.uk - I'm not sure about using plastic tubing as it is rather inflexible and cut edges may harm the nostril lining.

    For cutting or enlarging nostril holes cleanly, you can buy a leather punch from craft shops.

    It looks like a pair of pliers but has 5 or 6 different sized hole punches on a rotating head.

    For nostril tubing, homebrew shops sell plastic tubing for syphoning, short lengths of which are ideal, though you may need to smooth the outside edges of each end - a pair of nail scissors or a sharp knife will do it.

    One of the 2 from cocoon has an inflatable gag in it and that has become my fav.

    2 - reinforce the area and enlarge the holes with a punch (per suggestions below) 3 - find some rubber tubing that will stretch through the holes and fit comfortably into you nostrils.

    Default hood in diff sizes

    hi all, some years ago i found this hood somewhere on the net, by this manufacturer it was possible to get it in diff sizes, but i cant find it anymore. There are loads of hoods available everywhere but , it s only made and delivered in one size only, since i got one of those earlier, it turned out it was impossible to wear since it was so small i could not even close it.

    maybe one of the members got a similar hood and knows where he/she got it?

    thanks
