Your Personality and Style Should Never Be "Off the Rack"

I wouldn't consider myself part of the leather culture but I've always found leather harnesses and arm bands sexy and inviting. When I reached the age that I felt comfortable exploring that side of my persona, I decided it was time to finally invest in a harness that would fit my style and reflect who I am.

I went to a couple adult accessory stores in the LA area that were known for their line of harnesses but found myself disappointed by the selection I was given. I pretty much found the same variations of the same few styles and was caught off-guard by the high prices. But I think the main reason the "air was let out of tires" in regards to purchasing my first harness was that each harness displayed had 6 to 9 of the exact same harness behind it. Even if I did find one that reflected my personality and style, I would be robbed of my individuality because there would scores (or more) men in my area that felt they had the same personality and style as I do.

On my way home, I was talking to my friend about why our harness purchasing trip was a bust. My friend remarked how he couldn't understand how something could cost so much when they just look like a couple belts attached together. The light bulb went off over my head. I went home, straight into my closet and grabbed several of my belts and, with my limited leather crafting knowledge, put together a surprisingly affective (if not slightly crude) home-made harness. I proudly showed it off to anyone I could and was given much encouragement and advice. After some time learning about leather work and some hands-on practice, I was creating unique, one-of-a-kind designs that were born from either my creative force or a collaboration with the creative mind of the person wanting a harness that speaks to who they are as well as stylish and unique.

I always knew that when I found the right harness that fit and reflected me perfectly, it would be a rewarding experience. But what surprised me was how much more rewarding doing that for others with my designs and creations would be..
