New Fresh Handmade: Plaid Bondage Pants

New Fresh Handmade: Plaid Bondage Pants

Hello the Internet!

This is a very important service announcement going out to all you alternative kids out there or anyone with a little bit of rebellion in their hearts.  It’s time to get real.

Okay stop what you’re doing right now. I don’t care what it is. Go to your bedroom, open your closet and check to see if you own a pair of plaid bondage pants. Go ahead. I’ll wait here. Did you check? Do you own a pair?

You don’t?

Don’t worry, we can narrowly avoid this tragedy together. Venus & Mars has just finished making some truly amazing plaid bondage pants and you can come get a pair today.

These radical pants are a lovely green plaid with pockets and removable straps. They have awesome zippers on the side of the pants to make it easier to tuck them into your 20 hole Docs or pull them over your 12 hole Demonias. They look great with band tees, skinny tees, military frock coats, corsets or nothing at all. You will not find a more stylish or versatile pair of kick ass pants.

Start 2017 the right way by picking up these insanely cool pants today! If you hurry down right now we can and will help you put a whole outfit together.  I’m thinking a black holey skinny tee, plaid bondage pants, a black military frock coat and some demonia boots would be a pretty good start to a pretty rad outfit for a pretty exciting new year.

What crazy adventures will you and your pants get up to tonight?  Where are you going? Let us know in the comments below.

Happy New Year!

3 Reasons You Need a Kilt All the Freaking Time!

Three Reasons You Need a Kilt this Summer All the Freaking Time!

Hi Kids,

Remember this post from way back in June?  We thought it was relevant to our military inspired theme for November so we wanted to do a quick re-post with some addendums.




It is time you owned a wicked awesome kilt.

Here are three reasons why the BLACK COTTON KILT (we have new tartan and pinstripe kilts  now in store) is essential to your summer (or anytime) wardrobe:

It’s manlier than motor oil and beards. Anyone saying otherwise is jealous.  Just ask the Spartans and the Scots. As a result, they have a similar effect on women as a corseted lady has on a man.

It keeps you cooler than shorts. If you live in Vancouver you’ve been enjoying this sunny weather since the beginning of May.  You know that it will only get hotter as the summer progresses.  Shorts are great but you will get way more out of the breeze in a kilt.

Addendum – Sirs, I know Winter is Coming and you may be concerned about your man bits freezing but consider this: dance clubs, fetish nights and conventions are still hot as hell so do not rule out the breeziness a kilt can afford.

It goes with everything.  Seriously, you can wear a kilt with a POET SHIRT and look all dapper and amazing or you can wear it with your favorite nerdy tshirt and still look great. Or better yet impress your favorite gal or guy by showing up in just a kilt and a smile.

So what are you waiting for?  Order one today or get down to the shop and grab one before they’re all gone.

What’s your favorite reason for wearing a kilt? Ladies, what do you think of kilted men? Let us know in the comments below.

Do you know someone in need of an awesome kilt?  Why not share this on facebook or Twitter? Or sign them up for the Steampunk Tempest so that they can get Venus & Mars goodness in their inbox.

Looking forward to seeing you kilted gentlemen in the near future,

Devon Dale: Lady Adventurer for Hire

Specializing in Steampunk and Goth, Venus&Mars was established in 1993 and is the longest running alternative shop in Vancouver. Video outro is done by me – Sanné Lambert. The clothing in the gallery are some of the items in the window.

Venus&Mars Gastown Sears Tower


I’m Sanné Lambert, designer and owner for Venus&Mars Clothing located in the Historical Gastown  District of Vancouver, BC, Canada.

This video speaks to how  I’m a better talker than a writer, but I think I’m beginning to get thoughts across on paper  and therefor we can look forward to many more discussions on a variety of topics including goth and steampunk fashion, wearing corsets, making stuff and hurtling off-road in pursuit of wild hot springs.

Sounds good?

OK, then I’ll see you here!
