Robert V. Bienvenu II, The Development of Sadomasochism as a Cultural Style in the Twentieth-Century United States (PhD dissertation) Indiana: Indiana University, 1998. p.78. After William, inspired by the burlesque bondage, describes his idea for "Suprema the Wonder Woman," the women scoff. He then makes an appointment with Gaines, sells the idea, and ushers the family into a new era of prosperity as the character takes off. William does all of the work, and Elizabeth and Olive are shown only as inspirations for Wonder Woman. In reality, both women were pivotal to her creation. Charles Joseph Guyette was a fascinating, albeit over-looked, pioneer of fetishistic art practice within the 20th century. He was primarily a costumer who designed fetish-wear specifically for burlesque, strip-tease and circus performances. Working from the 30s to the 60s, Guyette is often considered to have formed the foundation for modern fetish-wear today. In fact, his designs were deemed so scandalous that he was arrested and sent to federal prison in 1935 only to be released a year later and continue to work under various aliases. Guyette was at one point branded the ‘G-String King’ due to the popularity of his garments amongst burlesque performers, as well as being known for his shoe designs that featured 7 inch heels; a height thought to be extreme in the 30s and 40s.

A fetish artist is a sculptor, illustrator, or painter who makes fetish art: art related to sexual fetishism and fetishistic acts. Charles Guyette: Godfather of American Fetish Art [*Cream Paper Edition*] by Richard Pérez Seves. New York: FetHistory, 2019. ISBN 978-1077679689 Desde joven, Bettie mostró gran interés por el cine y la vida de modelo, llegando a ser la coordinadora del grupo de Arte Dramático de su instituto en sus años adolescentes. En 1943, a los veinte años, se casó con Billy Neal, con el que se trasladó a San Francisco, lugar en el que le ofrecieron el primer trabajo como modelo de abrigos. Bizarre. The magazine for pleasant optimists who frown on convention. The magazine of fashions and fantasies fantastic! Innumerable journals deal with ideas for the majority. Must all sheeplike follow in their wake? Bizarre is for those who have the courage of the sown convictions. Conservative? — Old fashioned? — Not by any means! Where does a complete circle begin or end? Anderd doesn't fashion move in a circle? Futuristic? Not even that—there is nothing new in fashion, it is only for the application of new materials—new ornaments—a new process of making—coupled with the taste and ability to create the unusual and unorthodox to the trend of the moment."

Possibilities: The Photographs of John Willie edited by J.B. Rund. New York: Bélier Press, 2016. ISBN 978-0914646495 Robinson continues to disregard history with the family's main claim to fame, the creation of Wonder Woman. For the first two thirds of the film, one of the film's greatest strengths is the way it presents Elizabeth and Olive as remarkable, intelligent women. William even outright admits that Elizabeth is smarter than he is at one point. But when it comes to Wonder Woman, Robinson removes the women's involvement entirely.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 Marie-Pierre Pruvot, otherwise known as "Bambi". A transsexual pioneer (having transitioned in 1960). Largely uncredited in his lifetime, Charles Guyette influenced all the key fetish art innovators, including Irving Klaw, John Willie, Eric Stanton, and Leonard Burtman .

J.B. Rund, The Adventures of Sweet Gwendoline (Second Edition, Revised & Enlarged) New York: Bélier Press, 1999. p. 92. Within his book, Richard Pérez Seves does an excellent job in documenting the hidden life of an extremely important man who paved the way for many fetish-wear designers in the decades to come. The popularity of Gaultier, Mugler and Dita Von Teese ultimately has its roots in the work that Guyette did in uniting the realms of fetishism and fashion to create some truly beautiful images. The book features numerous photographs of Guyette’s designs that depict the artistry and femininity behind fetish-wear as well as the inherent beauty that resides within the female form. Guyette’s burlesque pieces were made with the intentions of strip-tease and undress; each layer ultimately revealing the natural body beneath. Fetishistic clothing, while often seen as a remedy against castration anxiety, can also be seen as a celebration of the nude female figure as it places her within a position of power over her own sexuality —a position she was often barred from. This book perfectly highlights the work of a fantastic designer who needs some much-earned credit.Charles Guyette: fetish pioneer who influenced Klaw, Willie & Burtman" The Fetishistas. 10 October 2017. John Alexander Scott Coutts was born on 9 December 1902 in what was then British Singapore to a British family, who returned to the United Kingdom in 1903. Coutts grew up in a middle class family and attended Royal Military College, Sandhurst. Commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Royal Scots, Coutts was forced to resign in 1925 when he married a night-club hostess, Eveline Fisher, without the permission of his commanding officer. He migrated with his wife to Brisbane, Australia in 1926; their marriage, however, ended in divorce in 1930. [1]

He holds an associate degree in general studies from Central Texas College; a bachelor's degree in business administration from Touro University; a master's degree in education from TUI University; and is completing a graduate certificate in E-Learning/E-Training. His numerous awards and decorations include the Legion of Merit (one oak leaf cluster), the Bronze Star Medal (two oak leaf cluster), the Meritorious Service Medal (five oak leaf cluster), Army Commendation Medal (one oak leaf cluster), and Army Achievement Medal (one oak leaf cluster), among others. He was selected as an Outstanding Young American in 1987 and NCO of the Year for the Law Enforcement Command, Panama. Unless a model is a good actress, and has 'that type' of face, it's difficult for her to look sad and miserable when working for me. My studio is a pretty cheerful place, and quite unlike the atmosphere that surrounds Gwendoline when the Countess gets hold of her." [9] It is a sensual, compelling scene, and an important moment for all three leads. It is also entirely fictional. 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."Mitchell, Tony (2018). "Eric Stanton and the History of the Bizarre Underground". The Fetishistas. Archived from the original on 5 December 2018 . Retrieved 4 December 2018. There are reasons to speculate. William wrote at length about "female love relationships" in his psychological work, heartily endorsing sexual activity between women. And, as the film points out, Elizabeth and Olive lived together for almost forty years after he died. That is the most that we've got. With the bondage, a close reading of Wonder Woman and William's other work does suggest a fetishistic preoccupation with such imagery on his part, but again, that's all we know. There's no evidence that he engaged in such activities himself, or that either woman was at all interested in it.
