VICKY WALKS! QUEEN VICTORIA DAY VENUS & MARS ONLINE FASHION SHOW

VICKY WALKS! QUEEN VICTORIA DAY VENUS & MARS ONLINE FASHION SHOW

Welcome to the future nerdlings!

Here at Venus & Mars we really dig Victoria Day. The weather is gorgeous, the birds are chirping and it’s just a fabulous time to wear a corset.

This year we decided to have a fashion show in good old Vicky’s honour.

Typical fashion shows are rad but we decided to one up it and premier our Vicky Walks on Google Hangouts so the idea was that you can watch from your bed in your pjs while eating an entire tub of ice cream. Because it’s 2014 and the future is now!

It didn’t quite go according to plan…

 

Good Intended Victoria Day Fashion Show Hangout:

 

Victoria Day Fashion Show Hangout Debacle. Skip ahead to 15:30 for our comments:

 

You’re welcome.

Who Wears this Stuff Wednesdays: Jenna

Inquiring minds want to know: who exactly wears this stuff?

Meet Jenna (#yayJenna).  She is 27 different shades of awesome and we love her.  She is an accomplished cosplayer, artist, writer, model and all around wicked awesome human being.

Not only has Jenna been a fan of the store for 8 years (she got her grad dress from us) but she is also one of our Living Mannequins.  You may recognize her from the ‘Ladies’  icon on our homepage.

Mystery Monday #2 May 5, 2014

Mystery Monday #2 May 12, 2014

Interwebs Activate!!!   FORM OF… a Sleuth:

From VM’s inception in 1993 until the closing of our 2nd location in New Westminster BC , Canada  (July 2009)  Venus&Mars has sold thousands of gowns.

Consequently, we have hundreds pictures of mystery beauties in their vm swag.

Can you help indentify them?

Check out the photos below…

Mystery Monday 2 Mystery Monday 2

 

Is this you or do you know this person?

Let us know in the comments below or better yet email us: devon@venusandmars.biz

This would be late 90’s or early millennia.

I can’t remember taking this photo, but it’s possible that staff took it. (Colleen, maybe?)

Were you going to a masquerade or did you wear it for grad or a special wedding? Inquiring minds want to know…

I’m very nostalgic about the gown. Ooohh look at that fabric and the trim and it hangs so nicely ahhh and the cloak…

Can you help find this mystery beauty? Search it out on Facebook or Twitter.

Throw Back Thursday: Walt’s Proposal

Walt’s Proposal My Wedding Symposium Episode #2

Greetings My Interweb Friends!

Would you like to hear about how Walt asked me to marry him for this week’s #tbt?

We got together over time as we played in the Sanné Lambert Trio.

A lot of the shows were at the Railway Club here in Vancouver.

We spent quite a bit of time in the back bar on what we dubbed the ‘kissing bench’ and when it came time for the big question, Walt choose the Railway as the location.

Check out this video for more:
