Everyone loves dressing up in character for EDC, and here at YourLamode we love to go all-out with our Rave Costumes: the more extravagant the better! But since so many of us are choosing to celebrate the holiday at a rave (don’t forget, is coming up very soon!), we’re starting to rethink our traditional Halloween costumes for some more rave-friendly attire.
Rainbow is one of my favorite kids’ TV characters; I was too young to watch the original series from the 80s, but I loved watching her on Cartoon Network, and used to draw her over and over from my mom’s old annuals! A Rainbow costume is the perfect idea for a rave if you’re into bright colors: grab a bright blue mini dress, a pair of rainbow fluffies or stockings and multicolored bracelets or arm bands and you’re there!
Another versatile idea is to dress up as a ballerina. This is a really simple idea, and if you’re a frequent rave goer then you’ll probably already have everything you need! The main item you need is a tutu - choose a pale pink or white one for a classic ballerina look, but you can choose any color you like. For a top, choose any kind of bikini or halter top, or a vest top if you prefer. Don’t forget to tie your hair up into a bun!
And if you want to make these costume ideas more Rave appropriate, strategically rip or slash the costumes and splatter yourself with fake blood!
