The Pretty Kitty an XXX Miniature

May I present, "The Pretty Kitty" a naughty little shadow box filled with a plethora of wangs, porn, xxx mags and more.

(Shout out to James for the term "pretty kitty" which I LOVE)

Clearly, I have the sense of humour of an adolescent boy...


... but there was a little more to making this than the sake of a few tittering laughs.

I've mentioned before about trying to get over my shit, my insecurities and inhibitions. It's hard! So many of us (myself included) carry all this shame and embarrassment about sex and sexuality. Things that as competent grown people, we are allowed to explore and enjoy.

I'm all for giggling over Princess Seka, and lube and double ended dildos! Sex IS totally fun and funny and ridiculous. It should not be some shameful dirty thing hiding in the dark and held over peoples heads. I wanted to make something fun and ridiculous and say "Look at this! I made something filthy and nothing horrible happened and by golly some people even liked it!"

ANYWAY, on to the details. All of those magazines, movie posters and VHS covers are real vintage xxx materials. Yes, there was an actual magazine called "Sluts & Slobs".  The magazines all open and have dirty material inside. The dildos, vibes are all made from polymer clay. And since I've had comments and questions about the peens, they are accurate representations of actual male members.

The vaginas are were made from these Miniature Corn Cobs. The butt plugs were trimmed from these 7/8 Inch Wood Finials and these 3/4 Inch Wood Finials. The chastity belt was created using this
Cast Metal Padlock and a couple of snippets of ribbon.

One of my favourite details are the little VHS tapes, for which I simply covered Old Fashioned Grocery Rectangular Tins with vintage porn covers.

It is a teeny tiny space, using the Small Frame Shadowbox from AlphaStamps.com. The interior measuring just 3-1/4" x 4-3/4" and 2" deep. It really didn't take too much to fill it up that space so I have a collection of dirty little things that never made their way into this piece. Guess there will be some more frisky mini's in the future.

If you're a dirty birdy like me, here are the supplies I used for this piece... you know, if you're itching to make your own filthy little something.

  1. I think this is incredible. It's funny and fabulous and clever and naughty - all the best things, really. I'm there with you, still mucking through odd insecurities and awkwardness, but always up for an adventure of the sexy and twisty sort. Life's too short not to have a laugh (and an orgasm).

  2. Bravo! This is remarkable. I salute you for being brave and adventuresome, facing down your fears and social "taboos". I love how you are expressing your experiences thru your art. Is there any chance of you making a collage sheet of the xxx magazines and labels? I would love to make my own "shrine to sexual freedom". I'm a child of the 60s/70s, and lived the sexual revolution. It was a glorious time!

  5. You are an absolute joy! I'm so bored with pictures of lady parts carefully embroidered as a social statement. These people must never have had sex so amazing that all those happy little endorphins kept them stoned out of their gourds for at least a half hour. Bouncing off walls and laughing with the pure joy of a very natural high. How the hell could someone try to twist that into a social statement? Nope, the sensible thing to do is spend an afternoon making tiny dildos for fairies and shrinking laugh out loud magazines for their pleasure. There are so many things that deserve social statements. One of the greatest pleasures of being alive isn't one of them! Keep having fun and making us laugh, we need it...

  7. Good for you! Every year at the miniautes festival where my friend Claudia and I sell our work, she has a 'naughty box' on the table. Discreet items only for sale to over 18s. You can find codoms, dildos and who knows what else in the box. It is well visited, which goes to show that there is a market for those items, even in miniature!
