So….everyone at work had tremendous sicks around the February timeframe, dievca included.
For dievca it was brutal headaches and exhaustion, others it was hacking coughs and exhaustion.
One co-worker recently got tested for the COVID-19 antibodies and they tested positive.
They and their family had gotten sick during the quarantine – bad. Their upstairs neighbor passed away. (duplex)
dievca is getting tested today for the antibodies out of curiosity.
Positive (+) result = she can confirm that the virus came from work. she hasn’t been sick in quarantine.
Negative (-) result = her coworker got the virus somewhere in Queens.
Its interesting being able to follow the trail.
Well…options for dievca to work on.
Her hair hasn’t looked like any of these options.
(Wait! She did have a pixie cut at one time)
How about your hair?

About 5 years ago, dievca developed a Cosplay Fantasy for Master – focusing on the fact Master never dated a cheerleader. It turned out to be a lot of fun. dievca had forgotten about the cheerleading uniform, but Master had not…
So, dievca went digging in storage and found the uniform and pompons. Hah! The cheerleading uniform was a bit too small, so safety pins had to come to the rescue. On the other hand, dievca is more flexible than 5 years ago 😘.
Master enjoyed flipping into the role of Professor, tutoring his student in Human Anatomy. dievca needed to work her way around His anatomy to get the ‘A’.
Here’s the original post with outfit at the end:
A SENSE OF FUN! (repost)
Master has mentioned that sometimes the BDSM crowd takes themselves very seriously — protocol, rules, discipline, punishment, titles, labels, dungeons, etc. A little bit dark and without humor.
Now, I’ve read some great posts from people who are very open to different manifestations of D/s dynamic. Their offerings sound more lighthearted — one aspect was a Cosplay element. Of course, Cosplay is a World unto its own –but slipping a little into our D/s relationship sounded interesting.
A while ago, Master and dievca talked about their High School and College years. dievca teased Master and asked Him if He was the BMOC (Big Man On Campus) and if He dated all the cheerleaders. He replied that He never dated a cheerleader. pom-pon girl or something similar.
Master grew up on the West Coast –what if dievca showed up as a USC Song Girl?
White is a tough color to wear — but o.k. dievca began her search….no USC uniforms to be found. The closest turtleneck uniform top she found was from the University of Iowa – Hawkeyes. They sell their spare stuff on eBay — too much $ for dievca to spend.
On to Plan B
Vintage HS Cheerleading Uniforms…a flashback for Master.
Nothing. Those saddle shoes must have deteriorated with age.
On to Plan C
eBay and Texas comes through. The southern States take their cheerleading seriously and many organizations/schools sell their old equipment on eBay. dievca was able to pick up a HS Cheerleading Uniform with matching pompons for a good price ($30). The sizing is “Kids” so she tried to go by measurements. The uniform was a bit snug, but perhaps that is not a bad thing… Accessorized with retro socks, white shoes, hair bows, braids and some cheers/dances swiped from youtube. voilà!
Ahhh, so much fun. Master flipped into a side that dievca hadn’t seen, an actor. He moved into the role of a Technology Geek who is a potential donor for a new engineering wing at a University. dievca was the newbie cheerleader who was a science major sent to show Him a good time.
The Cheerleading uniform and cheers were a Huge Hit.
dievca will leave it to your imagination what happened after the game.

It was tricky to find a Metal Bra – dievca found Chainmaille!
Easier to find a beaded Belly Dancing Bra – non-metal
Perhaps, more comfortable.
Where those drastic Goth Platform Boots came from?
If Doc Martens are not enough for your Goth-vibe.
Opening Ceremony is offering the brand “New Rock”
New Rock is a footwear brand from Spain that has been in the shoe-making business since 1929. The label is known for their alternative, goth, and biker-style boots, featuring thick platform rubber soles, over-sized tongues and bold metallic accessories.
They are not really for Master’s dievca – but perhaps a Goth BDSM – someone out there with a want or a need.
dievca would like to state a few definitions and offer some options for a Presentation Outfit.
a portmanteau of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear bought or self-made costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character.
women’s underwear and nightclothes.
– Urban Dictionary
A girl who dresses in a sexy Santa dress or red lace lingerie on Christmas Day/night to have sex with her boyfriend or sex buddy.
Now dievca assumes that a Santa Baby can be male, too!
But her offerings are leaning towards the female dressing options of Santa Baby Lingerie.
Master asked dievca what she wanted for Christmas and, of course, her immediate answer was:
(cue Mariah Carey)
The visions of Master with a hard, jutting cock,
jingle bells and a Santa Hat danced through her head.
Not very submissive — dievca’s knows, but she was on a roll. See?
dievca doesn’t think Master appreciated her demented humor.
Perhaps He prefers this vision of Santa:
A Presentation Outfit possibility — via Bettie Page
(OK, distracted – Master just sent fabulous photos of Himself and His Grandchild – better than Nude Santa’s)
Let dievca leave you with this video for the morning:
dievca puts the pumpkin on her door to let kids know she is open to Trick-Or-Treating, she cuts fresh pumpkins for Jack-O-Lanterns, she loves seeing the kids in costumes.
she can’t seem to generate as much energy and enthusiasm for adults in costume….listening to a friend bleat about a costume of a pregnant Ripley from Alien doesn’t inspire her.
And the thought she has a Halloween engagement party AND a Halloween-themed wedding really doesn’t grab her. (Two different couples)
Apparently, she is no fun~
Under that duress of that looming costume engagement party AND wedding, dievca is trying to figure out a way to work some type of clothing that doesn’t make her a curmudgeon.
Can she get drink over here?
Inspired by air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs…
Here is her spring-board of possible items:
OK, the last photo is IT! Look how adorable on a kid – what a mess on an adult.
Help, this ship is sinking.
Master is chasing a little tail…
As a child, dievca didn’t get to stay up late very often. she and her Dad had to be out of the house and on the road by 5 am to get to practice by 5:45 am. That meant an early bed time.
But for some reason in 1980 dievca snuck out of bed on a Saturday Night and saw this on her parent’s TV:
THE B52’S ROCK LOBSTER ON SNL SHOW IN 1980
Click the link — the video was not available on youtube.
It was her first introduction to Saturday Night Live.
(and the B-52’s)
The show was hosted by Terry Garr and had a Bill Murray SNL classic commercial “Anticipation”.
dievca was fascinated.
Why did this trip down memory lane occur?
dievca ran into this Miu Miu dress and it threw her into a B-52’s swirl, starting with a trip to Planet Claire:
Completely “Planet Claire”, right?
dievca’s envisioning a B-52’s party wearing the dress, Big teased Hair (a beehive) and cat eyes eye-liner. This could also be a really weird/fun Presentation Outfit for Master. Sassy, bubble gum, retro kinda like this
The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of distinction
A real big spender
Good lookin’ so refined
Say, wouldn’t you like to know what’s goin’ on in my mind?
So let me get right to the point
I don’t pop my cork for every man I see
Hey big spender,
Spend a little time with me.
Walking the streets of NYC, dievca spotted two sexy mannequins. It brought to mind some sassy dancing from the movie “Sweet Charity”. A presentation outfit was channeled — something different for Master. “Diversity, dievca, Diversity.”
- Short Sparkly Dress, form-fitting (Milly)
- Big Hair (dievca’s has grown back)
- Large Drop Earrings (Kenneth Jay Lane)
- Black Heels (Monse or Manolo Blahnik)
- Smoky Eyes (Urban Decay)
- Deep Lip Color (Mac)
- Well-Stretched Body
- Bob Fosse Moves

“And now I’m dressed like a little girl, in a dress both loose and short,
Oh with what freedom I can sing, and walk all ‘round about!
And when I get a little strength, some work I think I can do,
‘Twill give me health and comfort, and make me useful too.”
— The Sibyl magazine, April 15, 1859
Originally, Bloomers, also called the bloomer, the Turkish dress, the American dress, or simply reform dress, are divided women’s garments for the lower body. They were developed in the 19th century as a healthful and comfortable alternative to the heavy, constricting dresses worn by women.
Amelia Jenks Bloomer (May 27, 1818 – December 30, 1894) was an American women’s rights and temperance advocate. Even though she did not create the women’s clothing reform style known as bloomers, her name became associated with it because of her early and strong advocacy.
Bloomers, as lingerie, are baggy underwear that extends to just below or above the knee and fastened. (Can be known as “knickers” or “directoire knickers”). Bloomers were worn for several decades during the first part of the 20th century, but are not widely worn today.
Often the term “bloomers” has been used interchangeably with the pantalettes worn by women and girls in the mid 19th century and the open leg knee-length drawers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Something for CosPlay or DD/bg?

Charlotte Olympia’s knack for creating whimsical footwear
is embodied by these Killer Heels.
The 1940s-inspired shoes include:
- peep-toe style
- black suede
- contrasting newspaper-style ‘Gazette’ printed satin-covered block heel
- broken heart appliqué
- black organza ruffle trim
- embellished with crystal studs
- velvet front strap in a bow
- back strap is in metallic-gold leather with a buckle
They make the perfect finish for a ruffled midi skirt and silk blouse.
A look that takes the retro influence further~
dievca is curvy.
That makes wearing certain styles a trick. And normally, dievca just avoids those styles.
a 1960’s Go-Go mini-skirt shift dress:
It is a style dievca avoids….
until she saw Master looking at a museum exhibition of them with fondness.
Obviously, the fashion holds some great memories for Him.
So, now she has taken on the Go-Go Dress as a Presentation Outfit for Master.
dievca plans to buy one and get it altered to her curves as best as possible
or she might have a friend make her a dress with a vintage pattern.
Then it will be the quest for Go-Go Boots.
Poufy hair and cat eyes are not a problem.
Add a little groovy music and maybe dievca will swing her Master’s memories back here:
“Very often in the old fashion style of dancing, we may not feel particularly in a romantic mood and yet, very often, our partner would grab us and dance very close and hold us so closely – and I like this because, your know, we can completely keep it arms length and dance however we please, and ah – I really like that.”
Hopefully, Master will dance with His dievca at arms length
and then invite her to sit on His lap.
Perhaps His hands will wander up her mini-skirt.
We will see!
A bodice ( /ˈbɒdɪs/) is an article of clothing for women, covering the body from the neck to the waist. In modern usage it typically refers to a specific type of upper garment common in Europe during the 16th to the 18th century, or to the upper part of a modern dress to distinguish it from the skirt and sleeves. The term comes from pair of bodies (because the garment was originally made in two pieces that fastened together, often by lacing) of matching or coordinated fabric, possibly with embroidery or beadwork.
This construction was standard for fashionable garments from the 18th century until the late 19th century, and had the advantages of allowing a voluminous skirt to be paired with a close-fitting bodice, and of allowing two or more bodices to be worn with the same skirt (e.g., a high-necked bodice and a low-necked bodice allowed the same skirt to serve for both day wear and evening wear). One-piece construction became more common after 1900 due to the trend for looser, more simply constructed clothing with narrower skirts.
One mid-19th-century style included the Agnes Sorel bodice, named after 15th-century royal mistress Agnes Sorel. This style was a day wear bodice, with a square-cut neckline that had a high front and back and bishop sleeves.
In current usage, bodice typically refers to an upper garment that has removable sleeves or no sleeves, often low-cut, It’s the type of bodice worn in Europe from the 16th century to the 18th century, either over a corset or in lieu of one. To make a fashionable shape and support the bust, the bodice was often stiffened with bents (a type of reed), or whalebone. The bodice was different from the corset of the time because it was intended to be worn over the other garments.
Bodices survive into modern times in the traditional or revived folk dress of many European countries (see, such as, Austrian dirndl or the Aboyne dress worn by Scottish highland dancers). They are also commonly seen today at Society for Creative Anachronism events or a Renaissance Fair.
What’s the meaning of the phrase ‘Bodice ripper’?
A sexually explicit romantic novel; usually in a historical setting and always with a plot involving the seduction of the heroine.
What’s the origin of the phrase ‘Bodice ripper’?
These books owe much in style to the work of English romantic novelists like Jane Austen and Emily Bronte. Nevertheless, the term itself is American. The first note in print is from The New York Times, December 1980:
“Women too have their pornography: Harlequin romances, novels of ‘sweet savagery,’ – bodice-rippers.”
It soon caught on and appears many times in the US press from that date onward. Here’s an early example, in a story about [then] emerging novelist, Danielle Steel, from the Syracuse Herald Journal, New York, 1983:
“I think of romance novels as kind of bodice rippers, Steel says.”
The genre is commercially highly successful, but isn’t taken seriously by most literary critics. Most examples are judged by more base criteria than the classic works of Austen or the Brontes. Bodice rippers are strictly formulaic and the plot usually involves a vulnerable heroine faced with a richer and more powerful male character, whom she initially dislikes. Later, she succumbs to lust and falls into his arms. The formula requires the books to be fat ‘page turner’, that is, a plot device, usually a seduction scene, must happen at frequent intervals. Depending on the author or publishing house style, the principal characters must marry. It is almost obligatory for the cover picture to show the swooning, ample-bosomed heroine.

The sexy French Maid costume, the “soubrette” in France, is a form of ladies’ fantasy wear. One of the more popular costumes used as lingerie.
During the XIXth century, housemaids who served in wealthy French families wore simple, black-and-white afternoon uniforms.
Boys will be boys – and there were maids whose role wasn’t limited to keeping the house clean. Occasional sexual intercourse, discreet affairs, or even sexual harassment were a part of the deal in houses where the “Monsieur” was eager to use his power to satisfy his sexual appetite…
As the XIXth century developed many theatrical productions, especially in Paris, Maids were often portrayed in plays. A la ville comme à la scène, they had a stereotypical role in … bedrooms farces…
Nowadays, the design of the French maid dress can range widely, but seems to have several common traits :
- A black with white trim one-piece dress with a full skirt at or above knee-length.
- White half-apron, usually with ruffle or lace
- A ruffled or lace headpiece
- Long stockings or tights (nude or black)
- High heels
- White lace garter
The costume is strongly eroticized- often used in cosplay, as a fetish, foreplay and BDSM.
Nevertheless, even if its use is recreational, it still bears the original old-fashioned idea of sexual domination. The costume keeps on having a scandalous aura, historically involving a strong man dominating a woman…
The idea of a French Maid intent on her cleaning of a personal space with a feather duster being grabbed from behind for a little anal sex comes to mind…
A Thank You to Anne Marquet on Quora.
dievca was rooting around eBay and ran into an 8 Track Tape of The Beatles: Abbey Road.
This threw her into a memory whirl of being younger than 5 years old, driving with her Mother in a Ford Mustang listening to Sesame Street and looking at the other 8 Track Tapes in the car.
There weren’t many in the car, so they are imprinted in dievca’s memory:
dievca immediately wanted to hear an 8 Track Tape play, again.
The songs fading out to the “Cla Chunk” sound from the player as it changes channels before fading back in. The tapes playing in a loop, the randomness of changing channels only to be transported to another song within the album created interesting playback possibilities. Don’t like what song is playing? Hit the channel button, Don’t like that song, hit it again. Musical roulette. Plus, simply put an 8 track cartridge in a player and the music played on a continuous loop for hours to enjoy.
Is there an 8 track tape comeback? Like record albums? Maybe. Music today is disposable, nothing more than a file on your computer or phone that you can’t touch. Words on a screen. 8 track tapes like vinyl records physically exist, hold it, analyze at the album cover. Like dievca did as a kid.
Another reason 8 track tapes might be coming back is the warm analog tape sound. They just sound better than the over-processed digital files of today. And of course, the hunt to discover and find some obscure albums. Take the Doug Kershaw: Spanish Moss album…where would you get that? In the early 1970’s dievca heard it over and over….she now obsesses over the memory.
Maybe dievca could talk Master into buying an “at home” 8 Track Tape Player.
We could buy the 8 Tracks from here:
Wait! They are out of business, so let’s try eBay.
dievca knows that Master liked:
And this might create an opportunity to do a little 1970’s Cosplay:
Just as long as this doesn’t happen!
That would kill the groove~
Petticoat = an underskirt.
Petticoats were prominent throughout the 16th to 20th centuries.
Today, petticoats are typically worn to add fullness to skirts in the Gothic and Lolita subcultures.
And if you were wondering what the difference is between a crinoline and a petticoat:
A crinoline /krɪn.əl.ɪn/ is a stiffened or structured petticoat designed to hold out a woman’s skirt, popular at various times since the mid-19th century. Originally,crinoline described a stiff fabric made of horsehair (“crin”) and cotton or linen which was used to make underskirts and as a dress lining.

dievca was cutting a pineapple to share with Master and the idea for becoming a Pineapple Princess and pulling from Tiki Culture flashed through her head.
Cue the Annette Funicello:
The advent of Tikidom can be traced back to a man named “Don the Beachcomber”, aka “Donn Beach”, aka “Donn Beach-Comber”… or, less interestingly, Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt. Gantt was a Texan born in 1907, but he knew there was a whole world outside the steak-scented borders of the Lone Star State, so he traveled to the rum-scented Caribbean and South Pacific and learned a lot about how to chill on the way.
When Don returned to the States, he wanted to emulate the laid-back times he experienced in the tropics, so he opened the world’s first Tiki bar, Don the Beachcomber, in Los Angeles in 1934. People — including celebrities — flocked to the bar for its escapist ambiance, potent-but-tasty rum cocktails, and exotic cuisine (which was actually slightly modified Cantonese food, but still — not very typical for the times).
Also in 1934, “Trader” Vic Bergeron opened a similar bar in Oakland (originally called Hinky Dinks, but changed to Trader Vic’s in 1937) that also drew crowds for its Polynesian-themed drinks and food. Because of its success, Vic was able to open more locations in places like Seattle and Hawaii (before statehood!). A fad was developing.
During World War II, Gantt was deployed, so his wife took over management of the bar and expanded it into a chain with 16 locations. Tiki culture — inspired by the art, style, and attitudes of Polynesia — became huge in America during the 1940s and ‘50s, and fueled the two chains’ success even more, because people wanted to experience a time away from work and stress.
Tiki bars fell out of the public eye for a while between the ‘60s and ‘90s, but experienced a resurgence thanks to a few dedicated Tiki acolytes, who started up bars based on the original Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic’s.
Your typical Tiki cocktail is a mix of light or dark rum, flavored syrups, and tropical fruit juices — which is essentially the recipe for the Mai Tai (rum, orange Curacao, syrup, lime juice), the first Tiki drink to have widespread popularity after it was (allegedly) invented by Trader Vic in 1944.
1 oz amber rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz fresh lime juice
½ oz orgeat syrup
½ oz Cointreau
1 sprig of fresh mint and a piece of a pineapple
Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker except the mint and pineapple. Shake and strain into a high ball glass filled with ice. Garnish with the fresh mint and pineapple, you can float some extra dark rum on top.
CUTE LITTLE UMBRELLAS
Rumor has it that the umbrellas were originally developed as a way of keeping the ice in a drink cold on a warm day out on the beach. They were popularized by Trader Vic in the 1930s, and caught on from there.
Information is condensed and modified from an article by Adam Lapetina a food/drink staff writer at Thrillist
You could go with a range of clothing for your Sir or Madam, from grass skirts, no top with leis or more 1950’s Household Kink with a retro dress or Hawaiian shirt in a kitschy pattern. dievca was hooked on being a Pineapple Princess when she ran into these dresses from Loco Lindo:
Can you imagine serving your Sir or Madame a Mai Tai on their arrival home and kneeling to offer them fresh pineapple from the husk. Perhaps a little 1950’s/1960’s beach music in the background. And an interesting tie bikini or swimsuit trunks under your kitschy 1950’s Print dress/top. Could be a lot of innocent, or a little more, risqué Fun!
dievca would like to offer some sweet and innocent items she ran into while researching being a Pineapple Princess and Tiki Culture — who knows maybe the onesies would be of use after creating an excellent Cosplay moment + 9 months. XO
Dear Mr. Smith,
A pleasure to hear from you.
Business casual is a good idea during the summer.
I’ve got quite a large problem that requires your assistance.
Bring work attire that will allow you to respond quickly to
I see myself as a firm, but fair employer. After work I’d be
delighted to join you for an early dinner.
It was a Maine lobster town— each morning boatloads of hands pushed off for granite quarries on the islands, and left dozens of bleak white frame houses stuck like oyster shells on a hill of rock, and below us, the sea lapped the raw little match-stick mazes of a weir, where the fish for bait were trapped. Remember? We sat on a slab of rock. From this distance in time it seems the color of iris, rotting and turning purpler, but it was only the usual gray rock turning the usual green when drenched by the sea. The sea drenched the rock at our feet all day, and kept tearing away flake after flake. One night you dreamed you were a mermaid clinging to a wharf-pile, and trying to pull off the barnacles with your hands. We wished our two souls might return like gulls to the rock. In the end, the water was too cold for us.
dievca walked past the Playboy Club in London on her way to dinner. It sparked memories of her Parent’s belonged to the Playboy Club in Chicago, going skiing in Lake Geneva, WI, and seeing Bunnies, though kids weren’t allow in the lounges if dievca remembers correctly~
So, now she knows that the Bunnies are still HOPPING in London.
(PS. Might be a Presentation Outfit for Master!)
With daily use, dievca’s bike takes a beating.
she’s looking to upgrade for the Summer.
Here’s something she spotted in the Brooklyn Museum archives.
dievca thinks this a “look” worth fighting for~
Can you see her arriving at Master’s in such style?
dievca showed up at Master’s in a chunky turtleneck sweater, glasses, knit mini-skirt, tights and boots. Not quite Velma — but channeling her vibe, unintentionally. Master started laughing and pointed out the similarities.
That brought up the idea of Velma Dinkley of Scooby Doo fame as a Sex Object. Master mentioned that it is a thing. dievca had no idea…
It is a thing –totally CosPlay!
That brought up the 2nd point that geek chic can be sexy
(especially when you are peeling the bombshell out of the layers of sweater).
And in her meanderings around the web, dievca ran in a site for her geeky followers:
Somewhere to fulfill your inner geek fantasies.
Friday the 13th….in the United States alone, it is estimated that between 17 and 21 million people dread that date to the extent that it can officially be classified as a phobia.
Friday and the number 13 separately have been considered unlucky and around the 19th century were the first documented instances where the two were put together to create the “most unlucky” day.
But dievca plans to see the day in a different light.
The Ancient Egyptians believed life was a spiritual journey that unfolded in stages. They believed that 12 of those stages occurred in this life. The last stage, the 13th, was a joyous transformative ascension to an eternal afterlife. So the number 13 represented death to the Egyptians, but not death as in decay and fear, but as acknowledgement of a glorious eternal life.
dievca will be glorious in presenting for Master, today, after a long hiatus! she’s planning on an Egyptian theme:
As an Egyptian Goddess, dievca plans to kneel before Master and offer her services to help him find the Joyous Afterlife.
While researching presentation outfits, dievca did find something for the future…
Maybe a little decay did happen during Egyptian Stage 13…
First Party of the Season.
A Wild One.
It’s a younger crowd.
dievca went inexpensive and really fun (umm, trashy)!
Yep, Velvet, Sequins, Rhinestones.
Master’s going to be entertained with his dievca’s presentation afterward.
