New in Shop! (Week of April 1, 2018)

New in Shop

Fresh out of the studio, we have new waistcoats for all you steampunk and formal needs. Everyone’s wardrobe needs at least one waistcoat! A waistcoat will take your cosplay from recognizable to exceptional in the blink of an eye. Imagine, you can go from drab to dapper just by putting on a vest. Obviously, you can wear your waistcoat for more than just cosplay. They look great with a nice shirt and jeans if you are going for a casual look but when worn with black dress pants and a dress shirt they become formal enough to wear to a wedding. Our favorite outfit is matching one with a poet shirt and steampunk bondage pants.

What’s New Pussycat?

Underbust Holster Vest

 

The underbust holster vest is where fashion meets function. Starting at the top, the hood is detachable and comes with a piece that lets you wear the hood on its own. There is a zipper in the front that makes the holster easy to put on and take out. The back is elastic to allow for maximum comfort. There are also 2 large pockets. That’s right, we made a vest for women and we included large, functional pockets. Like pockets that fit things. We think it looks great with tap shorts and a peasant blouse.

Steampunk Waistcoat

Attention Steampunks of the world: Your wardrobe needs at least one waistcoat! A waistcoat will take your cosplay from recognizable to exceptional in the blink of an eye. Imagine, you can go from drab to dapper just by putting on a vest. Obviously, you can wear your waistcoat for more than just cosplay. They look great with a nice shirt and jeans if you are going for a casual look but when worn with black dress pants and a dress shirt they become formal enough to wear to a wedding. Our favorite outfit is matching one with a poet shirt and steampunk bondage pants.

Royal Blue Velvet Lined Cloak

I’ve found there’s 2 kinds of people in the world: those who own a cloak and those who have not got one yet. If you’re the latter, good news, today is your day to start your cloak collection. If you’re the former, good news, we have lots of colours and styles available to grow your cloak wardrobe. Why would someone want a cloak in this modern age? Aside from being a blanket that is social acceptable to wear, cloaks can make any outfit formal and add an air of fantasy to your everyday life. Plus, if you have a cloak in your wardrobe then you always have something to wear to a last minute costume party. We think cloaks look the best with a gown or a poet shirt.

Dan’s New Vest

Celtic Scroll Jaquard Pocket Vest 001

Dan’s New Vest

By day Dan is a mild mannered office worker at the Japanese consulate but by night he is a superhero decked out in awesome steampunk clothing that he gets from Venus & Mars. His favorite item is the pocket vest.

Dan has stepped in and given us a hand by either working in the shop, helping out at a event or by being a living mannequin more times than I can count.  We think he is awesome.

But he has a weakness.  Dan frequently misses out on things he really wants because he doesn’t always purchase right away.  On many occasions he’s gone back for the blender or skateboard or shoes that he really wanted and all too often they are sold out when he gets there.

That’s why whenever we make a new vest I text him a picture right away and let him know how many are left in his size.  It’s only fair.

I knew he was going to fall in love with the CELTIC SCROLL JACQUARD POCKET VEST so I sent him a picture.

He raced to the store at superhuman speed to get one while we still had them.  And wouldn’t you know, it looks super awesome on him.

Now Dan and his vest can live in happiness together forever.

Have you ever missed out on buying something and had it haunt your dreams and fill you with regret?  Let us know about it in the comments below.

Do you know someone who would love this vest as much as Dan?  Why not share it on Twitter or Facebook below?

Until next time…
