by: Selina   Dancing Addiction Outfit I love incorporating butterflies and earthy vibes with my festival fashion, especially if I’ll be dancing in the forest. The Dancing Addiction Outfit (in Lavender) would be perfect for this look! I would add Ivy Vine leg wraps along with floral earrings and butterfly rings to capture this whimsical vision. I always have fun with sunglasses and my dragonfly pair would tie this outfit together best. I also try to add lights to my looks whenever possible. Wearing a LED floral crown and adding LED shoelaces to your boots will give magical vibes throughout ..read more

It wasn’t until recently that I stumbled upon Raveraide. It is a GAME CHANGER. I gave it the ole’ raver try at Dusk M ..read more

by: Mackenzie Zirkelbach   The worst part of any festival is the part when we have to go home. Finally, one festival showed me how I can keep the rave with me all the time. The first night I stepped into Electric Forest (literally the best festival ever btw) I had never seen so many lights.

by: Koretha   Accessories are the perfect way to spice up an outfit! I find accessorizing can make any outfit feel more complete and personalized by how we choose to style our fits.

There’s so many fun colors to easily match with any fit, simple or glamorous. They are headbang proof and can be extra secured with bobby pins.

by: Jona   When I get asked how long I have been raving, the answer that I give to others is not a traditional one. Although my love for bass and dubstep started in the 6th grade, I did not start full on raving until this year at the age of 25. In a way, I felt like I had a late introduction into PLUR culture, but I am very grateful for the friends that I have met in just a short time period. I can honestly say my experiences that I have made and the friends that I met on this journey saved my life. Living with crippling anxiety and depression for so long has always felt unbearable. I hav ..read more
