Just more photos
So...I took some extra photos of Ted's Red Room in the light of day. It helps to see more of the detail. The room started life as a cardboard liquor carton. I'm not so handy with the power tools, but if I can cut it with a razor or heavy duty scissors, I'm fine. All the equipment I made myself. The bed is a bashed canopy bed...minus the canopy. The paddling bench and St. Andrews Cross I made with scraps and bits of lacquered sprayed craft wood. The handcuffs and such are jewelery findings.
I'm not sure what you call the hanging thing with the chains and cuffs, but it looked cool, so I added it. It was magnetized, so it made it easy to add the chains in a hanging down position. If you look at the top photo, on the right hand side, you can see the flogger, Cat 'O Nine Tails, and wide belt. I used the leather fringe off my handbag, and I thought they looked rather nice hanging on the hooks in anticipation of their next use.
You can't see it in the photos, but the ceiling has a huge round mirror in the center. I added it thinking it would help bring natural light to the dark room. It didn't really work out that way, but it seems realistic to me to have it there. I can't remember if there was one written in the Fifty Shades novels.
I would guess some people in the lifestyle might say my Red Room is not "dungeon" enough to be realistic. But knowing him as I do, I believe Teddy Beckett seems to have a taste for the finer things in life, and this room suits him just fine. And I think Cassie likes it too! LOL
Until next week, stay safe and happy!
