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!

Merry Christmas!

This weeks #throwbackthursday is a poster we did for #Christmas 2006. We were really into #angels for awhile and this is part of a series of angels and #GiveThemWhatTheyWant posters. It seems timely…

The photographer was #RockerChickCheri and the location is the west alley between Cordova St. and Hastings just around the corner from VM’s flagship location. There’s lots of great graffiti there. Check it out  sometime if you want.

I’ve been reminding myself to just chill this season as I can feel overwhelmed. Most important to me is the people in my life and being together at this time of year

There’s people living in the skytrain station and that’s distressing, but as Canadians, they’re better off than the refugees.  Life is good.

Cheers.

Once Apon A Time in Gastown (Throw Back Thursday)

 (Items in the Gallery are available in our shop)

Sanne Lambert Once upon a time there was a little rocker chick from Richmond.

Her name was Sanné Lambert. The little girl studied hard, won many proud battles and eventually landed in glamorous Gastown where she built the kingdom of Venus&Mars.

For 19 years the steampunk kingdom was a land of peace and prosperity.  One dark day an evil troll named Landlordia decided that she no longer wanted the kingdom of  Venus&Mars steampunk in the land of Cambie and poisoned all the crops giving the good people of Venus&Mars only thirty days to find a new home before they starved.

Sanné Lambert search high and low through all of Gastown until she found a space of abundance on the edge of glamorous Gastown to rebuild the kingdom of Venus&Mars.

After a year of hard work, Venus&Mars Hastings was more prosperous than it had been in years and everyone knew that it was only going to get better with time.

Oh yes, and of course, they lived happily ever after but it is far from the end.
