YOU'VE REACHED AN OUTDATED ANNIVERSARY SITE
Head over to FetishFactory.com/Anniversary for this years Weekend Info

Thank You!

We would like to thank all of our fetish friends, models, performers, photographers, dancers, DJs, nightclub and Fetish Factory staff for making our 12-Year Anniversary Fetish Weekend a smashing success and an unforgettable time with three solid nights of great partying and fetish mayhem!

Thanks to the staff of STRUT & Fetish Factory store for accommodating all of our shoppers day in and day out, and for all their hard work and effort.

We would also like to thank Timb (that's me) for creating all of these newsletters, building flyers, and updating info on various websites including the extensive and bottomless who's who page. If Fetish Factory was CTU and Glenn was Jack Bauer, I must be Chloe.

We would like to thank our MC for the weekend Bianca Beauchamp for her duties on the stage at the Saturday event and for also taking the time to come into the store, meet her fans and sign copies of her new book Fetish Sex Symbol.

Thanks to LAC for putting together an incredible day of kinky educational courses at the Sheraton on Saturday. This was enormously well-received and we hope to do something like this again next year.

Special thanks goes out to our sponsors without whom the event would have never been possible!

The weekend was nothing short of a visual extravaganza from start to finish. A big thank you to our very talented VJs for an incredible visual display on Saturday, as well as Demask for putting on an incredible fashion show with kick-ass couture and a grand cast of well-known fetish models.

We would like to thank the staff at our venues Club Cinema, & Coliseum for having us.

We would also like to thank the staff of Sheraton for putting up with us and offering the best hospitality around. We hope that we will be staying at the Sheraton again next year! Special thanks goes out to Jennifer, Patricia & Michelle for being our reps and making the hotel experience so great!

Thanks to everyone who attended the pool party on Sunday afternoon making it the greatest chill-out party of the weekend.

We thank our core crowd of loyal regular attendees, our out of town guests from countless cities around the USA as well as Canada, Europe & beyond! We enjoyed a packed house with tremendous energy all three nights and had a list of fetish celebrities a mile long. We look forward to seeing you at our monthly Alter Ego fetish parties and XFP live events until next year when we throw our 13-Year Weekend! [wink wink!]

Photo galleries will be posted from these parties in the coming weeks as photographers begin to turn in their images. We will also have a gallery from our Stay tuned!

For those of you who are already hungry for more, we will be hosting our next monthly fetish party only two weeks after the Anniversary, on Saturday, June 9th at Club XIT in Hollywood, FL. For more information, please visit TheFetishParty.com

Thanks to photographer Michael Diamond and ErosArtist.com for providing these brilliant photos. Visit his website for a sneak peek at the upcoming galleries!

Fetish Factory's 12-Year Anniversary is an all-weekend event featuring three great fetish parties on three back-to-back nights celebrating a dozen years of fetish in South Florida.

This takes place on Memorial Day Weekend with the first party, our Beat & Greet Lounge on Friday, May 25th. Our main event, the Anniversary Fetish Ball will be held Saturday, May 26th, and our Extreme Players Party on Sunday, May 27th.

All three nights start at 10pm. All events are 18+ welcome and follow our strict fetish dress code policy! If you don't dress up, you don't get in!

Your MC (or Mistress of Ceremonies as we like to say) for the event will be the beautiful Bianca Beauchamp. Confirmed performers for the weekend include Natalie Minx, Rebecca's Rubber Room, Rubberdoll, Darenzia, Chain Goddess Brandy, and Allen Falkner. For a complete listing of all performers including photos, bios and links, please visit the who's who section.

The Saturday main event, our 12-Year Anniversary Fetish Ball, will be held at beautiful Club Cinema, a multi-level venue with enormous capacity. This year, bigger is better! We will have all levels and rooms of the club open for you to explore.

Ticket Update

Discount tickets are available at Fetish Factory or pay full price at the door. Tickets are no longer available online.

SECONDARY HOTEL NOW AVAILABLE!

We have completely sold out our block at the host hotel Sheraton Suites and our special rate is no longer available. If you would like to attempt to book a room at the retail rate, please contact Sheraton at 888-627-8250. Some rooms for the weekend may still be available through the hotel at full price.

If you've missed your opportunity to book a room at the Sheraton, we have made arrangements to create a secondary hotel, only two blocks and easily in walking distance of the Sheraton: Extended Stay Deluxe.

To get our special rate of only $80.50/night, be sure to mention the Alter Ego group when booking your room. Our rate is good for Friday thru Sunday (May 25-27). Call now to book your room:

954-772-3155

Extended Stay Deluxe, 6001 NW 6th Way, Fort Lauderdale FL 33309

This may not be full service like the Sheraton, but it is a very nice, new, comfortable hotel and will offer you an opportunity to stay within walking distance of all the action!

Please note that our transportation shuttle will only be picking up from the Sheraton, not the Extended Stay Deluxe.

Bottle Service Update

Bottle Service is now sold out for Saturday's event. We encourage you to get bottle service for Friday and Saturday. Contact Glenn by email or call 954-563-5777 to reserve a table.

Hedonism III Giveaway

We will be giving away a pair of all-inclusive passes to Hedonism III in Jamaica at our Saturday main event which will make for quite an incredible vacation! This will include hotel, food, drinks and everything. The only thing not included is the flight to Jamaica.

For more information about Hedonism III please visit the official website. Stay tuned for details!

Ride & Hotel Sharing

Live out of town and want to catch a ride to South Florida for the big event? Or maybe you are driving and would like company and help with the gas and tolls? The same may be true to share the cost of a room at the host hotel. We have created a message board for people looking to share a ride or split a hotel room! Hook up!

You must be a member of Alter Ego to access the message board, but signing up for AE is free, quick, and relatively painless.

The Lost Files

The photos of pervy Englishman and fetish photographer Tony Mitchell have been missing and have never been seen. Until now!

Tony was in the states at our 11-Year Fetish Weekend on assignment from Skin 2 but when he got back to England, he and Skin 2 went their separate ways leaving his weekend's photos and his story in obscurity.

Tony has started his own site TheFetishistas.com and we highly recommend it! His story about the weekend has also finally been published on his new site!

Visit the Alter Ego site to see Tony Mitchell's Lost 11-Year Gallery featuring nearly 800 never-before-seen images from last year's events!

Media

Visit our new media page to see all of the great press that Fetish Factory has received recently! Even more coming soon!

Book Signing

We will be holding a special book signing for Bianca Beauchamp's new fetish photo book Fetish Sex Symbol at the store on Saturday, May 26th (the day of our main event) from 2-4pm. Come in and meet Bianca! For more information, click here.

We have just brought in 100 copies of Bianca's book to sell which she will sign in person. They are available for purchase at the store during the book signing, CASH ONLY! Please remember to bring cash if you plan on buying a book.

Pool Party

Need another reason to book your room at our host hotel, Sheraton Suites Cypress Creek? We're throwing a guests-only pool party on Sunday during our Fetish Weekend. Guests-only means you have to have a room to party poolside with your fetish friends!

We will have a live DJ set spun by DJ DayDREAMn. We will also have a full cash bar with frozen drinks, free tropical fruit and veggie platter, etc. We encourage fetish dress but casual swimwear is ok too!

Fetish School

We are excited to announce that we have added an afternoon of bdsm, bondage, and fetish-related instructional classes to the list of events over the Fetish Weekend. These classes will be instructed by the knowledgable lifestylers and bdsm expert educators from LAC. This will take place at the meeting rooms at the host hotel Sheraton Suites Cypress Creek on the afternoon of Saturday, May 26th. Classes run from 1-6pm.

Tickets are no longer available online for the Kinky Educational Courses. You may buy your tickets at the Fetish Factory store or at registration for the classes.

Discounts

Moonlite Diner has changed their hours due to lack of staff. They will be closing nightly at 2am and reopening for you all-nighters at 6am. HOWEVER the hotel has stepped up and will open their in-house restaurant at 2am for breakfast so you can get food after the party!

Shiny people and guests of the hotel will receive a 10% discount on their party's total at both the Sheraton Suites in-hotel restaurant Duval Street Bar and Grill as well as the very popular late night dining spot Moonlite Diner located one block east of the hotel. Show up in fetish attire or show your room key to receive the discount. (Discounts are for food only and do not include alcohol.)

Demask Fashion Show Blowout

We will have a special fetish fashion show by Demask as part of our main event on Saturday.

Pay attention during the show because all of the actual fashions you see on the models will be available for purchase the first week of June at 20% off the regular price at our store and online! We're going to blow-out these amazing fashions because they've been worn only once (during the fashion show by all the hot models!)

Featured Designers

Throughout the weekend you will see our sexy gogo dancers wearing latex fashions provided by Polymorphe, many of which are available for purchase at Fetish Factory. Our gogo dancers will also be showing off custom gasmasks created by Broken Brains. The Terror Twins will be dancing on Sunday wearing metal fashions by Virgin Iron.

History

Fetish Factory began as a small fetish fashion boutique in 1995 and has taken its place among the largest fetish retailers in North America with a fully-stocked 6,000+ sq. ft. showroom in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida USA.

The Alter Ego fetish party is the largest and longest-running monthly strict dress code fetish event in North America, running monthly since 1997. Alter Ego regularly draws 700+ fetish-frenzied attendees every month and can draw up to 2,000 for special events like Halloween or the Anniversary. Alter Ego has been a key factor in Fetish Factory's longevity and success.

Fetish Factory pioneered the idea of an all-weekend, three-day event in 2005 with the 10-Year Anniversary featuring three differently themed fetish nights, second-to-none production, dazzling performances, and a list of fetish dignitaries, models and photographers a mile long. Every year since, the event has gotten bigger and better.
