Writing at WoodRocket, Rain DeGrey has an entertaining anecdote about Nina Hartley’s mad crafting skillz when working on the fly with nothing but the contents of her purse:

A performer, educator, activist and all around delightful person, Nina has been kicking ass and taking names for long enough to qualify for OG status in the industry.

I had heard of her long before I finally met her in person, but we didn’t actually meet in the flesh until the day she had to make me a pair of pasties to prevent the police from closing us down.

We were both performers at a fundraising event in San Francisco that made the unfortunate call of having both alcohol and uncovered nipples at the same time, which is a bit of a no-no without proper permits. Permit-scorning rebels that the organizers were, nobody thought that the fundraiser would be big enough to attract any attention of the authorities. We were wrong. Hundreds of people ended up showing up and the place was packed to the rafters. Mid-event, the police raided the place and gave us the option of either covering up all the wayward nipples or closing down the fundraiser.

Option “cover the nipple” was selected and there was a hurried rush to make multiple pasties for all those poking out pink bits that are so dangerous when near the booze. I happened to be standing near Nina when the raid went down and she was so unruffled as to be blasé.

“Not a problem,” she said with a smile, “we used to have to make pasties on the fly all the time when I was dancing.” With a deft movement, she extracted a can of hairspray, some black electrical tape and some scissors from her purse. Flipping the can upside down, she covered the bottom of it with strips of the electrical tape, trimmed down the tape strips in the shape of a circle using the hairspray can as a guide, and handed me a set of nipple pasties in under a minute. She was like the MacGyver of sexy times and I was really curious what else she was carrying in that purse…

And if that’s not enough, there’s a bonus photo at the link of Rain wearing panda-onesie pajamas.
