I have a hard time being a damsel in distress. It seems like a very inefficient use of time. I mean sitting up in a tower all day waiting? I’ve got way too much awesome to do to waste my time with that.
Here are three reasons why saucy bar wench is way better than damsel in distress (oddly enough they all start with B):
1) Bar fights: As a bar wench you get to witness if not instigate hundreds of bar fights. Perhaps someone owes someone else money, perhaps one burly sailor is jealous of you making eyes at a soldier over your exposed shoulder as the cap sleeve of your peasant blouse slips down your arm again, either way bar fights are going to happen and as a saucy wench you just know that at some point you will learn to defend yourself with a rolling pin or whatever else is available which means you get in on the action!
2) Babes: Prince Charming is fine, I guess. I mean if you’re into prime and proper blue eyed dream boats with perfect hair that’s fine, but personally I prefer burly, bearded mean with tattoos and a heart of gold. I don’t want to stereotype but you’re more likely to find a broad shoulder beast of a man enjoying a beer in his MILITARY FROCK COAT at the local pub rather than on his way to tower in the middle of freaking nowhere, so the local pub is where you can find me.
3) Beer: I’ve always thought that a honey lager, good company, and the promise of adventure goes much better with my peasant blouse than an empty tower, boredom, and the promise of waiting around forever.
If I had never been to Mexico in the first place, I would lament this weather less. Interrupting winter by taking a warm holiday is a proper and reasonable thing to do. Its just that I haven’t been able to travel this year and I’m bored of my current outfits!
Oh goddess of weather please bring the spring! I promise to be good (he,he snort…) and I’ll work out more so my thighs don’t look crap in my shorter skirts.
Look, I know logically that spring will come (like the groundhog?) it’s just my heart refuses to believe it.
Wait… something strange is happening to the sky…a bright glowing orb… could it be?? That’s the thing about Vancouver, if you don’t like the weather just wait two minutes. After all rain forest is not just an expression.
This is a re-release of the original Gothic Olympics Corset Protest which took place during the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010. There was a protest going on at Robson Square and we decided to join in. The result was an enjoyable and humorous afternoon about town with our VM Living Mannequins attired in awesome handmade Venus&Mars corsets! I thought it would be a cool and timely Throw Back Thursday re Sochi. FYI: it’s me (and my husband) behind the camera with the running commentating.
Valentines Day window shopping at Venus&Mars. Venus&Mars clothing is a alternative clothing shop located in the Gastown District of Vancouver BC Canada. The Venus&Mars Label Clothing is handmade by the in house design team, headed up by owner/ designer Sanné Lambert (that’s me). 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.
