Charles Guyette: Godfather of American Fetish Art 

** Charles Guyette: Godfather of American Fetish Art

Charles Guyette was a sexual fantasist, who earned his living as a costumer. He sold photos of his "costume studies" on the sly. He produced custom-made high-heel boots and shoes, sold corsets, opera gloves, and other eccentric accessories. He understood the transformative power of clothing, particularly "bizarre" and theatrical fashion. He is also referenced in the new film on Wonder Woman's creator, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, as the costumer for Wonder Woman's real life inspiration, Olive Byrne.

Reviews:

 "If New York collector, writer and fetish historian Richard Pérez Seves had not decided to assemble what he knew about Charles Guyette (along with a substantial selection of images) into this paperback, this influential forerunner of the genre's better known exponents would have continued a lot longer as the great unsung hero of American fetish art."—Tony Mitchell, thefetishistas.com

"If you're at all a fan of fetish art ... then this book will be right up your alley." —kinkweekly.com

 
"I've often cited John Willie's gals as my biggest fashion inspiration but I'll have to start tipping my hat to Guyette as well."—Dita Von Teese

 ** Sweeter Gwen by Eric Stanton (Restored) 


Stanton's homage to John Willie and his iconic creation Sweet Gwendoline. The full story of its creation is detailed in my upcoming hardcover book, Eric Stanton and the History of The Bizarre Underground

The year was 1962, and John Willie was dying. Stanton and Ditko were sharing a studio, and Stanton wanted to create a tribute to his hero. Stanton asked Ditko to be involved and Ditko agreed. This was in the spring of that year just as the two were cooking up costume ideas for Spider-Man. (More about that in the upcoming book.) Sweeter Gwen and the original installment of Spider-Man were virtually created at the same time.

Dita Von Teese: Preaching the Gospel of Vintage Fetish!

Dita Von Teese High On Heels

Dita Von Teese has never denied her fascination with fetish art. In fact, she has stated the following:*
"I love fetish for its power of transformation and also for its beauty.... John Willie, Bettie Page, Irving and Paula Klaw — these are my heroes."
"If you look around, you'll find fetish everywhere ... and they call it avant garde when it hits the runways."
"Fantasy, of course, is nearly always about what we cannot, or currently do not, have. The allure of denial is as provocative as any embrace — I learned this from the fetishists."
"At least the way I view them, burlesque and fetish are peas of a pod, two snaps of a garter, the committed disciplines of the art of the tease."
Dita Von Teese, Fetish and The Art of The Tease

I've been a fan of Dita for many years, and so it was a special thrill for me to see this particular posting on her Instagram account:

Along with this video was a message to me, which included this quote:
"I’ve often cited John Willie’s gals as my biggest fashion inspiration but I’ll have to start tipping my hat to Guyette as well...."

!!!!

I've seen Dita's shows, and I've collected her book and magazine covers. For fellow collectors, here are a few from my collection. Some of Dita's greatest hits:

Dita Von Teese, Fetish magazine, no. 12

Dita Von Teese, Reflections magazine, v. 17, n.1

Dita Von Teese, Kinky Contacts magazine, v. 17, n.1

Dita Von Teese, Fetish magazine, n.10

Dita Von Teese, Leg World, April 2003

Dita Von Teese, Taboo magazine, Oct. 1998

Dita Von Teese, Playboy magazine, Dec. 2002

Of course, there are so many more.

I am so grateful to Dita that I'm speechless.
