I will suggest Dungeons again.(might satisfy the fetish community) though make sure you paste male nipples.

Time for my normal crazy suggestion:

Only a prime number of rings.

project.addRing();

Hmm might be a bit of a problem with Steampunk, a lot of the current designs around use chainmaille as an embellishment so might contradict the "mostly chainmaille" rule. Slap about 4 cogs on your design and your on a sticky footing.

That said I wouldn't mind Steampunk as I have some builds pending in that particular sub-genre that will also be netting me some cash! It's lovely putting in for competitions but it doesn't keep the wolf from the door. I second Steampunk but for selfish reasons only.

I suggest something abstract;

"light"

(Dungeon, when you couldn't get S&M through the vetting process? Really? Always have to push the boundaries don't we? It is a wonder lorraine tolerates us) Very Happy

Actually I've got an order pending for that too so yeah. Slap in the perv. See if I care. Smile

Here's the thing. the most important part of BDSM is that it is between consenting adults who are fully aware of what they are doing and not doing. So having that as a theme just doesn't fly.

To me dungeons brings up medieval basements to hold prisoners. Don't get me wrong, it brings other things to mind too, but it's not an "adult" subject exclusively. But of course Rule 34 applies to everything on the internet... nothing I can do about that. Wink

Seconding Light.

I would like to suggest non-standard maille

For example, rings made with square wire, or oval rings

So there's wiggle room, so everyone can fit in nice and neatly. Smile
To be honest that's quite apt. I know a few people (with fairly expensive taste in furniture) who 'like' the fact it has been custom built to be multifunctional.

One minute it's cake and crumpets on the coffee table, the next well..... You get the picture. A reassuringly ambiguous theme.

I don't think there's a limit on what you can second.

So, do you really mean "non-standard rings"?

I would just like to say that I love these contests; they challenge me to do things I haven't done before.
(and it is just as well I'm not in them for the winning of them, because I've never come close, not so far)
