Dd/lg identification?

This is something I've been thinking about since I joined the community but I haven't seen anything posted that relates. I was wondering if anyone knows, or if this even exists, if there is a secretive way to identify yourself as part of the community? I.e. Bracelet, ring, etc. Something that you wear that communicates to others that you're Dd/lg?

 

It would be fun to run into random people who identify with the dynamic and secretly advertise it. I'd be interested to know if such a thing exists.

Daddy and I like to show that I'm his in a variety of ways:

 

I do wear a collar and leather bracelets because I'm not just a little but also a slave.

 

I have a beautiful promise ring because we're basically married to each other

 

I also have several tattoos. I have a lion on my hip because he's a Leo and I have dots on my wrists, ankles and back of my neck to connect me to my leather even when I'm not wearing them.

It would be awesome if there was a symbol on jewelry to represent the dynamic like rings or a necklace/charm. 

 

I used to wear a claddagh (not DD/lg related) and it was always neat to bump into others that wore them.

This is the first time I've heard of a claddagh. I like it!

It's common in some Dungeons and clubs to identify with a color in a certain spot or wearing a themed item. There is a danger to this though because some newer people to the club wont know the color code and sometimes it leads to trouble. I can't think of anything I wear that could help identify me as a little other than an anklet I made that's pastel pink, baby blue and lavender. I also have a matching bracelet I put on my keys. Often times I wear 90s chokers and have a pentacle I never take off (Pagan/Psychic crap). There is also a Celtic love knot on my necklace and I've been thinking of getting some sort of charm to possibly put on my choker. With a lot of the Alt fashions I'm into some of what is considered DD/lg is normal in the fashion so it can easily be confused as well. I currently have no tattoos, but the ones I'm planning are very fantasy and some child like.

I love the symbolism of the claddagh and the different ways it is worn to signify relationship status. If there was a universal symbol like that for DD/lg that would be awesome.

Hello ! I love the idea of the jewerly, I would like to wear something refering to ddlg :)

 

But it would be something discret, like a little bracelet, something like that, it would be fun ^^

 

Sorry guys but what is a claddagh ? ^^"

The Claddagh ring is an Irish symbol of love (represented by a heart), loyalty (represented by a crown), and friendship (represented by two hands).  Worn on the right hand crown in the wearer is single.  Right hand, heart in, the wearer is taken.  Left hand, crown in, the wearer is engaged.  Left hand, heart in, the wearer is married.

Well, if you're a gay man, there's the handkerchief code. Wear a hunter green bandanna sticking out your back pocket, and it signifies you're either a daddy or a little boy, depending on which pocket you wear it in.

My mom had a Celtic themed wedding and her ring is a Claddagh. They even did the hand fasting thing where they had me and my siblings place the cord over their hands.

I'm not a gay man but hopefully this post will be helpful to someone who is. I think it's cool that something like this exists.

I know for asexuals the symbol is a black ring worn on the middle finger but nor sure what could be used for ddlg (without it being made into a fashion trend)

A collar would be a cool ideas for littles but not sure what can be used for caregivers

This is a really good question. I had always thought of a collar a pacifier as identifiers for me personally for littles but even then there are plenty who don't wear or use either. My Daddy and I are married but besides our wedding rings you don't know really that we're in a DDLG lifestyle. *ponders*

Why couldn't WE make one?

 

We don't have to wait for another person to do it for us. :D

 

The ddlg forums can use a vendor to sell it to help fund their costs for the server.

I live in California, very near San Francisco where there are several BDSM clubs/cafes. I occasionally attend a CG/l group called the "little scouts" (essentially girl scouts for grownups) and we meet in one of the aforementioned cafes. That cafe sells the previously mentioned colored bandannas, as well as several other types of identifying chokers/chain-mail jewelry. I do notice a lot of super cute lockable "day collars" such as this one amongst the littles in my group.

 

However, in my experience identifying other DD/lg members has less to do with what signifying things they are wearing and more to do with how they act. I tend to notice other littles before I even know for sure they are little simply by mannerisms and vocabulary alone. Daddies are harder to identify by this manner but if they are with their little or talking about their little (even in a normal non-scene-friendly setting) I almost always notice.

 

I'm gonna use fun and awkward story time as an example of this:

 

I just moved closer to where I was born, and recently started getting to know my extended family. There are a lot of cousins I've never met before, and on one of the weekends we were spending at their house, my Daddy and I went out to dinner with my oldest cousin (24, very close to our age). Now, before this I'd never talked with him much, only brief encounters during family gatherings. But during this dinner both my Daddy and I picked up on something a little weird. Now, to most people, when you refer to your girlfriend with endearing pet names it is just cute. When you say things like "my babygirl and I went to see a movie the other day, it was really good." they assume nothing is amiss. It's just a pet name. But to people like us, with the certain inflection, and the later use of "little one" as a reference to her, my Daddy and I looked at each other, then looked back at him, and asked if he knew what DD/lg was. He went pale. Like. Ghost white. He didn't even realize that people who know would recognize it. 

 

Long story short. If you listen and watch people carefully, you'll find others. No need for magic signifying objects. But still it is a great idea and totally we need official DD/lg signifiers. Like. Yes.

I know there is some crossover from DDlg to abdl. There was a term that I saw on shirts and such before called "REPAID" or "reverse Repaid" or "derepaid" Which is just a backwards means for diaper. But I don't think that ever caught on.

This sounds fun! I would LOVE to meet other Littles in my area but i'm really shy so unless you're a really close friend, you won't know that i'm a Little from the way i act in public. So far, i haven't met any one yet. ;A; i don't think ddlg is even known here... But i'm hoping!!!! So yes, this idea would be lovely! ^_^
