i didnt see a thread dedicated to this,and i figured this would be the safest place to post this thread.i know ALOT of cons host their own raves,so i think we should have a ravers resource/discussion thread,:rockon: post links to pictures,resource sites and share your input/opinions with your fellow cosplay.com ravers!XD

i need a solid yellow (and a red one too) tank top for the otakon rave this year,and i cant find any. (im a guy,and guys brightly colored tanktops are pretty hard to find,=_=;)
any suggestions???

P.L.U.R. ^_^

Kohls. They have EVERY FREAKING COLOR of tank top for like $4 each. Rave wear is amazing. Hardcore Ravers for life. I'll be at the Otakon dance. The real rave this year was in Fort Armistead MD. Starscape. Anyone else go, or going to to Otakon's pseudo-rave?

Haha guy tanks? Um. you can get white beaters and dye them? lol. Kohls only has bright colored women's tanks. Hot topic is really hit or miss. Green fishnet for $2 one day and expensive generic goth clothing the next .lol. Yea, you missed an amazing night at Starscape ::rubs it in:: Evol Intent rocked MY FACE OFF. So incredibly dirty. Definitely meet up during the dance. Friday I'll be in lime green polkadots and a tutu. I'll bring some kandi and a camera! Yay can't wait! <3

Haha!! All of my good rave-resources are probably non-existant anymore, since I'm an oldfag (ie: was looking for rave gear back in 96-98!! Back when raves were RAVES!!!!)

I may have a good LED site still bookmarked back at home though-- one I was using last year when thinking of adding LED's to a costume.

But dayamn. P.L.U.R.
Brings back memories to this oldtimer.
Kandi Kids LOL.

And yes, I still own my old UFO pants. Why? Don't ask. Haven't worn them in years.

dont get m wrong,im not a rave veteran or anything,i personally feel im not old enough to have any knowledge on the golden years,he rave i went to was a poor example of freedom and/or fellowship of the scene. but i love the ideals and what ravers stand for,so i consider myself a private first class of sorts,XD
plus i kinda developed raver fashion sense on my own without knowing there was a name for it,XD

but im gratefully for any resources or knowledge that any experienced ravers can share with me!^_^

i cant wait to be a bigger part of the scene!

let the bass become your heartbeat!^_^

*EDIT* and wow,ladyhawke,youre pretty hot,^_^

Haha. I've been to a few "raves". I wish I had been old enough to attend the true scene. Bright clothing. Amazing lights. X. Kandi. Haha. OH...and I know I should shove this post in the spam section, but if anyone wants to commission me for some big ass rave pants/rave clothing, I'll do it...for the price of fabric and shipping. ^_^ I've taken two trades in the last week also, if you have a trade or item to offer in return (hair falls, light installation into clothing, wigs, etc. I accept that too. lol.
I can probably take one or two more before Otakon. PM me!

StrawberrySiren
07-23-2008, 01:44 AM
i shall be at otakon too! and i don't want to wear the standard jeans and t shirt. or my costume. there is no way i am wearing a soul reaper uniform to the rave.

so...i figure rave fashion is the way to go. but what exactly is rave fashion? all i've got so far is neon.

StripperANBU
07-23-2008, 09:11 AM
rave fashion doesnt have a very strict "criteria" so to speak.just look up some pictures,and see what style fits you best and run with it. theres kandi ravers,industrial ravers,cybergoth,cyberpunk,steampunk etc..^_^ im a fiend for matching colors,and crazy accessories. baggy pants are the most comfortable to dance and move around in,but nothing beats scantily clad raver chicks,XD.you cant lose with a color scheme of black+any other color. or try combining a bunch of bright colors together if you like being noticed,^_^ ebays a great place to find cheap raver gear and accessories,or you can just make whatever you want,its up to you!^_^

as long you can dance the night away in it,its all good.
my personal thing for raver wear (or clothing style of any sort) is just "wear who you are" ^_^ hope this helps.

Puppy-Sama
07-23-2008, 11:13 PM
pick a theme, any theme. that is all.

close your eyes and hold on tight. just let the music play. let's take a ride into the night, a place where we an STAYYYYYYYYYY. Save the moment, don't let it slip away. Sure feels good to me.

Puppy-Sama
07-23-2008, 11:20 PM
If you really want ideas, pick a few colors, pick a theme, decide what is MOST COMFORTABLE for you to dance in.

theme ideas:
-groups of people: pirates, ninjas, tribal peoples (to be cliche')
-animals: (to be REALLY cliche') dogs, cats, mythical creatures
-themes based on patterns: idk, maybe you REALLY like leopard print or camo.
-costume based on cosplay: you get the idea.
-a play on your favorite storybook character
-interpretation of a place or time (like 60's gogo dancers or 20's flappers)

JUST BE ORIGINAL FOR F*CKS SAKE, the above examples are all overdone, think of something new. Impress everyone else. People get tired of going, DAMN, there's like 5 kitty cat ravers here...and 100 ninjas/pirates...FEH!

StrawberrySiren
07-24-2008, 12:08 AM
lol i would never wear my cat ears to the rave. even though my name is kat. those things fall aff too easily.

anywho so i'm going to find my black mini and next time i go to the store, i'll see whatever catches my eye.

thanks guys!

make something. hot topic is not interchangeable with rave attire. The only things you can BUY are like fishnet, goggles, and cool jewelery, everything else, you MAKE.

StrawberrySiren
07-24-2008, 03:36 AM
lol i didn't think hot topic would be too great for me. it's too far and too expensive.

stupid rich goths...haha.

i was thinking of just re-working whatever shirt i see wherever. cut it up, add stuff. whatever. if all else fails, i don't think it'll matter.

StripperANBU

i love you for this.

@Strawberry: pups right, just imagine how pissed you would be after spending your money on a bunch of crap and then seeing like 3 other people with virtually the same outfit on,personally id kill someone,XD

Hyper_Phantom
07-24-2008, 01:50 PM
Yay, I like this topic.
About seeing the same thing everywhere. I have this neon green mesh top I got at hot topic and see it everywhere, but I don't really care, I love it anyways lol. As much as I love dressing crazy and seeing everyone dressed wild and awesome, I don't care. I'm there for dancey dancey! So if there are a million cat girls and ninjas, so be it.

Moving on.
I'm going to make something like a cyber goth raver version of the Joker. It's gonna be sweet. I'm also going to make a glow stick hula hoop. =D

StripperANBU
07-24-2008, 03:19 PM
id actually like to see that cybergoth joker.
green dreadfalls with joker makeup would be kickass,awesome idea.
at otakon im going for a sort of cyberpunkfreerunner look on friday
and saturday im trying for more of a steampunk/cyber theme,if they dont turn out close to those,i at least hope itll all look presentable,^_^;

StrawberrySiren
07-24-2008, 03:50 PM
wow. joker does kick serious butt. i really want to see that.

Ok guys, I need your help and advice for my Joker wig. o_o I've never done the whole cyber dread/fall thing (though I've been interested) and don't know where to start. Uhm. Any sites that I can purchase from that are well recomended? Should I make instead? Can I have a combined wig of dreads/plastic/foam/tubing without it looking like a disaster? Either way, I need it to glow like crazy lol.

anbu a good safe online store to buy ufos is bewild.com yeah there regular priced, but i have um 3 pairs of ufos and they have lasted me about 6 years? so if you get a pair your really dying for its worth spending the money if you can take care of them, you will have them forever.

another side topic i found, i dont really dress up for the convention dances or raves, a pair of ufo's a tank and thats it. it kinda makes me sad, im just kinda there to dance and meet people and have a good time, but i have been noticing that there is just this huge group of people who get all dolled up for the raves, with the fake hair makeup globed all over them selfs and covered head to toe with anything they can attach to there body, bracelets, goggles, straps, ect. which im not saying is bad or anything because i think its cute and all, but it makes me feel kinda sad.

my brother used to take me to the "real" (in my opinion, this is late 90's) raves, not counting starscape, because if you have to buy a ticket i really consider that a concert not a rave. (sorry im not trying to down you) anyways, thinking about how we were just there to be together to dance and really enjoy whoever was playing and to meet people and what not, convention dances people make it such a big deal to dress up and its kinda becoming a glam prom.

i guess its just the difference between my brothers generation and what im seeing now, it makes me miss when i first learned about the rave culture, because now PLUR, really has no meaning. its all looking super cute and being super hot. its kinda vain to me. but i am there to have fun just like all them and i guess i will see what happens next. (im sorry kinda had to let this out) im sorry if i offended anyone.

as long as there is good music, the rave community will always be there just forever changing with the times.

07-25-2008, 09:59 AM
Necro-I need it before Megacon which is in Feb. No Otakon for me lol.

BunE-People want to express themselves. Some do it through dancing, others through dressing up. Plus, it's a con rave. Full of cosplayers and creative people. So obviously people are going to want to show off and look their best. I don't know how it is with conventions in the "outside world" lol, but that's just convention culture. As for PLUR, meeting people, having a good time and dancing, those are all still there. That's my main reason for going to raves. Hell, I can dress up "rave" anywhere I want to. But nothing beats raves for what they're really meant for. I love them primarily for the awesome music and dancing. Especially since I can dance how ever the hell I want and nobody will raise a disaproving judgemental brow. PLUR, as far as I see it, still pervades. The raves I've been to are full of peace, love, and respect. As for unity, well I dunno. Depends what you mean by it. If it's meant as being united in getting high on life and enjoying it, then hell yeah.

we dont need that here in this thread,if you dont mind. this isnt about who can 1-up who,and personally i already made it clear that im by no means a rave veteran:

i cant wait to be a bigger part of the scene!

i went to see a couple DJ's in concert and ive been to Ota's rave twice.big whoop. not that im saying youre trying to be condascending or anything,i just dont wanna take any chances,if thats okay with you,^_^

although as far as music goes,(even though its kinda off topic,^_^; )
im a big fan of tiesto,dj sh0g,AVB,oakenfold,assemblage 23,nin,b-day massacre and some others,^_^

thank you for this post,^_^ i really envy the older people that got to experience what a REAL rave was like,and i know alot of the concert/raves these days cant hold a candle to the golden era,it makes me sad kinda,cuz i think id like the atmosphere that time provided.but i guess i have to make the best of what the times CURRENTLY have to offer,ah well.

as far as the glam prom thing,i can see what youre saying,but still theres nothing wrong with expressing yourself through what you wear,is there?(albeit im not accusing you of saying so in the first place,XD) but regardless there will always be those who claim to be thus,without really (at least trying) to embrace the culture and ideals. but i would like to,it just kinda seems like im too late sometimes,=/ but youre right,as long as the music is bumpin,i can still have FUN.^_^

BunE, I completely understand where you are coming from.

See with me, I only like to dress up to attend raves at conventions. Not the raves I go to outside of them. (I don't really know why, but it's just me.) As for PLUR, it was lost many years ago, as was the idea of NOT going to a rave on drugs. (Sadly, most new Ravers, seem to think they need a drug to make them have fun, which isn't what it's all about. I myself would much rather be listening to the beats, hanging with friends, than popping pills, among other things.)

On one note, conventions seem to be big with people acting stupid, doing things they shouldn't and dressing as slutty as they can...it really make me cry on the inside.

Back on topic:
Friday I am thinking of just showing up in cosplay, or a strap/sleeveless shirt, pants, and flipflops..lol

Saturday I'll wear some platforms, and all the other crap, mainly for some pics with friends. ^_^

Yes, rave is dead, but there are still many of us (who have attended a real rave or two XD) that hold rave close to our hearts. I live by PLUR. You don't need to be a raver to live by it. Drugs have been around even longer than PLUR and they can only enhance the experience. Not it's not necessary, but don't knock it until you try it plx.

As for convention prosti-tots (^_^) dressing like hookers, I cry a little on the inside every time I think about them being drunk and making eyes at my legal guy friends. (btw, i'm very protective of my guy friends, so no jail bait drinking!)

I myself would much rather be listening to the beats, hanging with friends, than popping pills, among other things.)

On one note, conventions seem to be big with people acting stupid, doing things they shouldn't and dressing as slutty as they can...it really make me cry on the inside.

Back on topic:
Friday I am thinking of just showing up in cosplay, or a strap/sleeveless shirt, pants, and flipflops..lol

Saturday I'll wear some platforms, and all the other crap, mainly for some pics with friends. ^_^


I've been to a few real raves, The amount of drugs circling around wasn't as bad as people said it was, but it was there. I don't do drugs at raves. I feel the exstacy of the music going through my body while i dance, That's how I feel.

I also put up a gallery of the shots to get this. (http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/120460/)

Call me a raver snob but I put a lot into making my raver costumes. This is my anti-raver/raver costume page. Femtechs - Teen raver Barbie clones. (http://mutaytor.com/cast/mutech/femtechs/) Sorry I don't consider baggy clothes, kandy bracelets, and glow sticks to be very chic rave wear. Nor is being od'd and completely incoherent on x.

I'm in a band called Mutaytor. We have been doing underground and rave events for 10 years. There are around 32 of us and we have really cool visuals abd we also spin and play with fire,

ANyone have any good pictures of their rave wear? I went to a rave at Animazement but it wasn't anything original.

Short black tank top (Slightly shiny?)
Jeans (Layered with a plaid skirt I made)
Shiny and colorful bracelets and necklaces
Pigtails(...yeah...I'm ashamed...)

I had a picture but...I dunno where it is...I wanted to wear something a little cooler this year at AWA...Any suggestions...

THIS IS NOT MY COSTUME. It was a trade with a friend for some hairfalls. Still needs 2 layers in the skirt. I think it looks flat. Also needs garters and 2 cuffs at the wrists. TRADE KANDI TO HER AT THE DANCE WHEN YOU SEE HER! <3333

Me squeezing my too big chest into a B-cup corset...also 4 inches smaller in the waist than I am. Haha skinny bitch.

Let me know what you think, there's still room for improvement, I know.

Sorry it seems I'm posting a lot...*recoils from the inevitable hit*
But those headphones are...AWESOME POSSUM...sorry it's something I picked up from a friend at anime club on Sunday....

This whole thread makes me want to work hard to make a good rave outfit and one that's not slutty or unoriginal...(No cats girls please...*Sigh*)

Alright, I'm starting my own Cyber/rave wear this year. I'm just getting started on my first falls and I would like some pointers on what I could do better. The one's here are about 85% done. I'm going to put in black lace, since that's my color theme, and then possibly after the con (AWA) Adding tubes.

Here are the pictures of what I have done right now.

This is made for short hair, since, well, I have really really short hair, about two inches long on top, inch and a half on the sides. It's held up by two Scunci clips, which are hot glued to the under side.
The green lace will be mixed with black once I get some, and so the empty spots will be filled in with black. :3
Right now, it almost weights 1/2 a pound.

that looks like a good start, but me personally, i think theres a fine line between nice and overdone with the foam,try adding some rexlace or crin,maybe another color for some contrast,^_^ lookin good so far though,^_^

This thread is relevant to my interests.

I used to go to raves back in 99-02 I think? man it was so long ago!
I still make kandi and hand it out at conventions though, and yeah most peeps don't have a clue what a kandi kiss is.

You definitely need baggy pants, it makes it easier to dance in! Also a tank top cause you're gonna get hot. Goggles are always neat, and fluffies if you're wearing a skirt are cool too.

Yes, rave is dead, but there are still many of us (who have attended a real rave or two XD) that hold rave close to our hearts. I live by PLUR. You don't need to be a raver to live by it. Drugs have been around even longer than PLUR and they can only enhance the experience. Not it's not necessary, but don't knock it until you try it plx.


I sort of agree! I'm from the UK but I've heard many strange things about the US rave scene and I can't really judge. I'm the only kandi kid here in the UK and I wouldn't say rave is dead at all, I live by PLUR too and I agree about the drugs, enhance is the right word. I've been raving almost every other weekend since I was old enough too and I only drop 1nce a month or so but I don't really wanna get into a discussion about drugs here tbh :S

I dunno about "raver fashion" really tho, what I do at raves is about a million miles away from cosplay and my cosplay friends don't like it at all. I will say though that over here there isnt any 'rave gear' except some cyber/uv stuff but not cybergoth, I've never seen a cybergoth 'in the wild' but i am familiar with the fashion.

Over here people just dress in jeans + t-shirt, theres not much of a scene. aside from me nobody gives out kandi and there are no cuddle puddles, bags of fruit, water you have to pay for or anything like that because almost everyone is drinking alcohol instead of on drugs. I dunno about other genres but here in the Happy Hardcore scene everyone is still really friendly and nice to each other in spite of all that. I've heard a lot of elitism goes around in the US rave scene which doesnt happen here. Also apparently your events are 16+, have no MCs and play loads of different genres in the same night. Strange!

I don't really have much new stuff... just mailed out a bunch of my kandi to my friend who was doing a Rave!Kamina cosplay :'3 And trying to get more commissions on my kandi bikinis, hahaha. I'm running out of money ><

I'm so mad, though. I didn't have a chance to cosplay as Raver!Yoko at anime expo, due to not making it to the dance D:
