Put on your imagination caps, I’m going to take you on a magical journey. Let’s pretend you live in Hope, BC. You want to have an awesome steampunk party to celebrate your birthday. You don’t have a car or means of getting out of Hope so you cruise around the local shops but you can’t quite find what you are looking for. You turn to the internet and you are overloaded with websites. You’ve never seen any of the garments in person so you don’t really know what the quality is like or how it will fit.
Then it hits you like a bolt of lightning! You remember seeing Venus&Mars at Fan Expo last year in Vancouver. You really liked the clothing and you were able to try on a couple of things. You find the business card and check out the website. You’re blown away that it is the longest running goth store in Canada and that almost everything is handmade right there in Gastown. Eureka! Your prayers have been answered.
You can take your imagination caps off now.
