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!

  1. Fantastic room. I love the mirror. The bed looks great.
    Hugs Maria

  2. YOU ARE WICKED,GIRL! I, too, love the mirror. B

  3. Ohh, girl! I love the chair and the pretty mirror!!!
    Great room!
    Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs from Brazil,

  4. FYI, there is no mirror on the ceiling in 50 Shades :) but I love the idea.
    You could call it a sensual playroom instead of a dungeon :) There are hardly any real dungeons in miniature, I think ;) Is the thing on the wall with the cuffs a sling perhaps?
    You have my full compliments!

    1. Thanks! I am pleased with how it turned out. It fits the personality of my characters, especially Cassie. The item on the right wall is supposed to be a St. Andrew's Cross, which is placed directly across from the mirror above the bed ...on purpose. ; ) I will take your word on the sling. lol. You can't believe the amount of emails I got from people who didn't want to post publicly, but who wished they could shrink down and play in my Red Room. It surely is a compliment of sorts...I think.

  5. Would like to make a noise like rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...hehe, well done Vicki, like the personal touches you put in it!

    1. Thanks Jazzi! High praise indeed! Poor Fr. Kevin almost had a heart attack! LoL
