Cosplay and lingerie seem almost inexplicably related to each other. Maybe the common thread that runs through both is fantasy. Lingerie plays a great part in the art (science?) of Cosplay (see Cosplay or Costume Play in the SilkySoft Lingerie Style Guide). Where else can you mix lacy lingerie bras and panties with unearthly alien hair and rubber stockings and garter belts?
All Undone Lingerie is a very exciting UK brand turning heads in Europe with their emphasis on beautiful designs, fit and quality construction. Their new SS14 collection debuted at the Lingerie Collective earlier this summer and we wanted to share their SS14 images with SilkySoft readers.
We're celebrating Pi day with Saturday Cosplay, and with a special Cosplay announcement: We're hiring for a Cosplay photo shoot! Would you like to be a SilkySoft Cosplay superstar?
Do you love Cosplay? Do you think you could express your creative side with a Cosplay photo shoot? Any theme, any style, if you're selected for a Cosplay photo shoot, you could win $250 cash and an opportunity to grow your modeling portfolio.

I'm still trying to get my head around this!
Springtime is almost upon us, and that means the new lines of lingerie are blooming! One of our favorites is Frederick's of Hollywood. While most of their lingerie is definitely for the night out, we love some of their basic lingerie that you can wear anywhere, and still feel sinfully sexy at the same time!
The Frederick's Embroidered Flora Bra is sure to be a favorite this spring. This bra is made of a silky soft stretch embroidery and mesh, and boost cleavage naturally. It features a simple, white floral fabric on both sides of the bodice, and showcases your décolletage in a pretty yet flattering way. You can pair this bra with the matching Embroidered Floral Half-Slip and thigh-highs for unstoppable sexiness. Some of the bra features:
- Partial peek-a-boo cup
- Underwire for support
- Comfortable, adjustable shoulder straps

The good folks at Bomb.tv really do know how to throw a great Christmas party. Four beautiful Japanese idols Maya Koizumi 小泉麻耶, Azusa Togashi 富樫あずさ, Yua Saito 齊藤夢 and Yui Koike 小池唯 put on bikinis and santa hats to show their Christmas spirit. If this doesn't qualify as Cosplay, we're not sure what does. The entire Cosplay pictorial is here at Japan Sugoi.
Check out the Christmas video below. Japan really does have the Christmas spirit.
This week our sponsor is Newport Beach-based luxury boudoir service For Him To Love. For Him To Love has taken boudoir photography to the next level, with packages ranging from the most affordable $500 to the most decadent, in-home or at your favorite luxury hotel for an additional fee. We love the fun themes and the romance and passion they inspire in the women, men and couples they work with.
And their use of technology is amazing. Waiting for a book is so 1990s. For Him To Love uses the latest Apple technologies including AppleTV and iPad to deliver your photos and videos in new and flattering ways. Want to show off how good you look in lingerie in your home theatre after the kids go to bed? Now you can.
Check out the latest blog post including a very sultry lingerie fantasy in the kitchen (with frosting!).
Japanese Cosplayers get all sorts of inspiration. Today's Cosplay was inspired by Konami's 2004 all-girl wrestling game Rumble Roses. Japanese Cosplayer Akira Itsuki brings the wrestler named Aigle to life with bra, bikini and boots!
Does sexy lingerie reflect your confidence, or does sexy lingerie make you feel more confident? It's a chicken-and-egg question. What we do know is that beautiful lingerie accentuates and amplifies your beauty, and people around you notice. It's that simple. Sexy lingerie builds confidence even in the most shy.
What are you wearing tonight?
Halloween is behind us, but we always have an excuse for dressing up thanks to the Japanese. It's called Cosplay, and this is Cosplay Saturday at SilkySoft! Our theme this week: Neko! ("Kitty" in Japanese).
Neko Cosplay combines feline sensuality with everything we love about lingerie and adds a dash of crazy fun.
Every year, Thanksgiving is followed by a melee of Black Friday sales almost everywhere. As you might imagine, we're particularly fond of the lingerie sales from some of our favorite companies, including Frederick's of Hollywood and Adam & Eve.
Check out the sales on their sites, and indulge a little, even for yourself!
It's been a little while, so we thought it would be fun to share a few more Japan-inspired Cosplay Lingerie ideas! Cosplay (the Japanese amalgam of the phrase "Costume Play") can be as imagination-inspired as you want it to be. Ranging from something as simple as cute hair and lingerie to a fantasy-inspired maiden (or knight) in something sexy and frivolous makes for great Cosplay!
Lingerie is sexy. It's beautiful, and accentuates your beauty.
Lingerie is also like magic. It transports you to a different place, where you can relax, unwind, and even slip into your own sexy fantasy.
Where does lingerie take you?

I just had the opportunity to meet (and photograph) Bells Wong. There are some people whose natural beauty makes lingerie look good. Bells is one of those rare people. She's absolutely beautiful.
