My previous post on Hello Kitty gone bad got me to thinking: If Kitty is now on pasties, what else is going on in the world of decorative nipple covers?

A website with the god-awful name Booby Bling sells a variety of pasties, intended more for practicality than performance. By practicality, I mean day wear at pool-side parties and bike rallies. (Finally, an answer to the age-old question of what to wear under a fishnet shirt!)

A company called Flying Pasties is marketing fun and kicky nipple and crotch covers to make your TSA screening more comfortable. And, guess what? There’s even lesbian versions.
They have five layers of protection and are designed to protect your girly bits from radiation, too!
If you’re interest in making your own pasties, you can check out this handy Instructables on the topic.
