This video was shot at the original Venus & Mars Flagship Shop in the Gastown District of Vancouver, BC Canada. For Kayla’s Throwback Thursday, she is wearing a Handmade Venus&Mars Steampunk outfit consisting of a Black Tapestry Zipper Corset with Spiral Steel Boning and a Reversible Black&White Crinoline.
It’s my birthday. I’m 29. And for my birthday I got a gift card to the store. I just love gift cards, they always fit. Anyways, I immediately knew what I wanted to get. I always have an ongoing list of things I want from the store but Sanne just made the most fabulous corset waist belts and I had to get one.
If you’re unfamiliar with the corset waist belt, you need to get your butt down to the store and try one on. They have the look of a laced up corset in the front and elastic in the back so you can look ultra sexy and still be able to move around. I’m not sure if you fully understand, you can look like you’re wearing a corset and still be able to dance, sword fight, travel through time, generally kick ass and it’s just as comfortable as wearing a pair of yoga pants.
Oh did I mention that they’re reversible? Bonus! I already have two at home (one is green tapestry and the other is red and gold tapestry – love them) but this batch featured some gorgeous upcycled leather reversible to black tapestry. I couldn’t resist. It is most definitely a must have for any lady adventurers out there.
What was the last thing you couldn’t resist purchasing for your wardrobe? Let me know in the comments below.

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.
