Greetings Spanking Fans,
Shadow Lane has a Facebook page under Tony Elka. Want to connect with friends before the party? Follow us on the Tony Elka Facebook page and post messages there. You can also post to the various Shadow Lane party groups on FetLife, which is free to join and asks no private info about members.
I just posted a question on Tony Elka's Facebook page: What are you bringing to the party?
Here are my suggestions:
In Vegas at summer's end, it's still blazing hot outside and frosty within all modern buildings. So you'll need sun glasses, sunscreen and a sweater.
Attire for the party is dressy casual for Friday night and dressy casual to formal for Saturday night, as your inclination steers you. On Friday night, many spankees enjoy wearing classic spanking looks, such as prep school style blazers, shorts, pleated skirts, and other traditional articles that draw attention to their spankablilty. On Saturday night suits and even tuxes may be seen on the lads, while ladies tend to display their beauty in cocktail dresses, prom dresses and gowns. This doesn't mean that you can't go casual both nights. If you feel most comfortable and cute in jeans, by all means, be yourself.
Here are two examples of great spanking style for ladies, each with different points and features to recommend them. The iconic pencil skirt, modeled here by Ashley Edmonds, outlines, profiles, displays and tightly encases Miss Edmond's shapely seat. But while the glove tight skirt does draw the eye and whet the appetite to see more, getting it up for a spanking is no easy task. How do you do it? Make her hike it up before she gets over? Try yanking it up yourself once she's over your knee? Awkward and annoying. Or do you have unzip and remove the skirt entirely before beginning? Either way, there's nothing fluid about getting a girl in tight skirt bared.
The second example shows the advantages of a "swing" skirt, which is what they are calling any skirt that is loose, rather than clinging. A fuller skirt may be easily flipped up or folded back to reveal a spankee's bottom. And as this close up on the lovely derriere of Violet October reveals, a loose skirt can make the prettiest possible frame for a rosy seat.
Additional Party Suggestions
There will be many options for buying toys at the vendor fair, but if you want to pack your own essential spanking kit, I would include: a solid wooden hairbrush, a round or oval leather paddle and a leather strap.
Spanking Etiquette sidebar: If you plan to asks guests to your room and you're the kind of spanking person who travels with dozens of esoteric toys, do keep the most invasive items of gear tucked away in a drawer until use.
Many is the innocent spankee who has consented to play in someone's room, envisioning a bit of over the knee spanking, then walked in to see every table, desk and dresser top piled high with retention plugs and enema equipment. For a casual party hook up, that's just too much, too soon. Not saying don't bring those things, just talk about them first, play show and tell only after some interest has been expressed.
Since you might get lucky in love at this party, it's never a bad idea to bring condoms. Not that spanking parties are like swingers events. But the atmosphere is still highly conducive to romance and love. Many happy couples meet for the first time at spanking parties.
If you plan to have guests to your room or suite, having some bottled water on hand to offer them will be appreciated.
