I'm having lots of fun lately testing out the harness gag prototype... I'm a big believer in making something, no matter how crude at first, so you can get a sense of how it works in the real world. It can help you narrow down problems right away. That buckle would work better over here! Or, hey, when I put that on, you can't breathe anymore! Might need to fix that...
As you can see, the harness fits nicely over the skin tight lamb leather hood. The little part you see sticking out at the mouth is the back end of a gag being held in place with the harness. I'm experimenting with the gag sizes for this project as well, and it's been a Goldilocks process up to this point. The first gag size was too small. The second size was too big.
Based on the muffled moans of satisfaction, I'd say this third size is just about right... All this testing and refining can be such hard work. All the lacing and strapping, moaning and armbinders and all. I may need to test this design a few more times before committing to a pattern... Plus, I could use some more practice deciphering "gag-speak".
It's a tough job, but I guess somebody's got to do it!
