NEW YORK — The prize pool for the New York Miss Rubber World Competition has now reached more than $10,000 worth of rubber fetish wear and accessories.
"The prizes are amazing," said fetish model Psylocke, the Swedish competitor. "I've never been to an American fetish party so this will be very interesting for me to see." When crowned Miss Rubber World 2013, the winner will receive more than $5,000 of latex gear from sponsors such as Cocolate Latex, The Baroness, Cinched Tight Corsets, Dawnamatrix, Kink Engineering, and FetishMovies.com.
The second and third place winners will also take home rubber prizes provided by sponsors such as Demask, AM Statik, Fetisso, and Lust Designs.
"There is an inherently sexual quality to latex clothing," said sponsor Klawdya Rothschild of Klawtex. "It so resembles the texture of skin and is sleek and shiny. Latex is versatile enough to take the most subdued thing to the extreme, like a spotlight emanating out from your own body that radiates sensuality."
Running for the title of Miss Rubber World 2013 are Julie Simone, designer Madria of Madria Latex, and Val Vampyre, organizer of Fetish Factory in Florida.
At this time, five spots are still open for the competition.
"I've heard nothing but nice things about the entire Miss Rubber World team," Vampyre said. "I literally want to come into that room and have a drink with everyone there."
New York Rubber Ball kicks off with the event launch party presented by Fixe Magazine, Thursday, April 4 at One on One on East 1st Street in New York City.
The 2013 Miss Rubber World competition follows on Saturday, April 6 at the Union Square Ballroom on 27 Union Square West.
