Gothic Olympics Corset Protest
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.
