FInally had a minute to finish the last of the drawings I made at Folsom Europe. I really enjoyed my time there.
It was a very comfortable and relaxed scene. On my way in I saw what I thought for a moment was security frisking backpacks. Then I realized it was just a group of uniform fetish players looking for their beer or gear or something!
Folsom Europe really shines with Tom of Finland archetypes.
Because I was a child in Chelsea in the 70s, I really love the classic leather daddy and uniform looks. It feels like being wrapped in a warm blanket to see gay men rocking the old school Christopher St Clone style.
This performer, Georg Kroneis, was wonderful.
However there were also plenty of casually dressed lovers just sporting crew socks and sweats, as seen in the first picture!
I was very casual myself, unlike my friend Sadie Lune who wore gorgeous high leather regalia and an Autumn goddess headpiece, which inspired the big diptych of her and her girlfriend Jo Pollux I just finished. You can see my previous Folsom Europe posts here:
