Where do the Weirdos go to Dance?

Vancouver has a bit of a reputation of being a no fun city especially when it comes to clubs and dancing. There are, of course, the mainstream pop music clubs on Granville street. But where are you supposed to go if you don’t want to hang out with the jocks? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Descent

Descent is Vancouver’s Goth night. It takes place the 3rd Sunday of every month at the Red Room. Founded in August, 2007, Descent provides a chill environment for the city’s Goth kids to dance and drink in peace. There is no dress code but you are encouraged to wear whatever you want to express yourself. The music is good, the cover is cheap and everyone is pretty friendly.  Throw on a black frock coat and some dark jeans and go dance the night away.

Galaxion

Galaxion is your place to drink, dance and game. Heavily inspired by 80s pop culture, Galaxion takes place on the first Saturday of every month at the Astoria. Dance the night away to 80s classics, New Wave, Synthpop, Hip Hop and Post Punk. Don’t feel like dancing? Check out some of the retro arcade games set on free play. It’s the perfect place to rock some rainbow sparkle leggings!

Sin City

Sin City is Vancouver’s longest running fetish party. It takes place on the second Saturday of every month (plus a couple other bonus parties) at various venues. If you’ve never been to a fetish party before don’t be scared! Sin City is the perfect way to introduce yourself to the life style. There is a dance floor or if you’re feeling spicy then you can check out the dungeon. Sin City has a fetish dress code to keep the normies out. We suggest starting your outfit with a corset.

I know it can seem hopeless when you’re passing the Lamp Lighter on a Saturday night but there are really cool events and venues you can find in Vancouver if you look hard enough. These are just a few examples. Did I miss anything? Where do you like to hang out on the weekend?

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.
