» So It’s Your First Rave

We all have had our first rave to go to and we have asked ourselves, what is this all about? What do I expect, what do I wear, how should I act? There was something or someone who got us to this point. Either it was a song we couldn’t get out of our heads or a friend who wanted us to join them on an adventure. No matter what the circumstance, you are about to go to your first rave and you don’t know exactly what to expect or how to roll. It’s all good! We all started out here and you can fret about not doing it right or being judged because your not “hip” with it” but the fact of the matter is that you are the master of your own fate and if you treat people right,  you will be alright.

I have personally been going to raves for about 16 years now and I think the best advise I can give you is to be respectful. Not only respectful of the other people but also respect yourself. Go for the music. That’s what raves are, they are electronic music venues. The DJ’s work incredibly hard to entertain you, unite you and show you a new perspective. Don’t go to get laid, do drugs and make an ass out of yourself.

There is a reason that the ravers creed is “PLUR” or “PLURR”.

This stands for : Peace | Love | Unity | Respect | Responsibility

These are the values our underground community cherish and try to foster in our dealings with other ravers.

Once you go to a couple raves you will notice that you will start to understand the deeper meaning of these words and hopefully find your “raver family”.

So what to wear?

Wear sensible shoes! I can’t stress this enough! No high heels or crazy platforms that you are going to break an ankle in dancing! Sneakers/Tennis Shoes are the best foot wear for raves as you are going to be dancing.. a lot.

Think about the type of venue you are going to. Is it going to be inside or outside, is it going to be in the middle of winter or summer. Remember that like any other event, you need to dress appropriately for the weather and venue type. Use common sense when making your wardrobe decisions.

Wear clothing that will let you move freely. There’s nothing worse then trying to dance in uncomfortable clothing.

Guys find that wearing phat pants and a funky TShirt allows them to shuffle/dance more easily. As apposed to tight fitting pants and muscle shirts.

Girls, you have tons of great options when it comes to rave attire. You can kick it old school in phat pants and a cute Tee. Or you can go for the New School route with Fluffies, a Mini Skirt or Booty Shorts and a crop top or bikini top.

Remember Originality is the key here! Raves are a way to express your truest self. Show the world how unique and imaginative you can be. Making your own outfits or buying handmade one of a kind items help you stand out in the crowd and get noticed. It’s also a great ice breaker and super way to meet new friends.

One of the main reasons I started my business was because I always met so many incredible people just b/c I had made my outfit from scratch. It was a wonderful feeling meeting like minded people who dug what I made and inspired me to share my creations with my “rave family” and allow them to experience that same great feeling of originality and uniqueness.

If you have any questions about what to wear, just post em in the comments section and I will help you out as best I can :)

Sex, Drugs and Techno~

Like I said before, you should be going to your first rave because of the MUSIC! Not the Drugs, Not the Sex, yadda yadda yadda…

Hey, I don’t judge anyone, ever. I’m not going to lie to you either. I’ve raved on drugs and I’ve gone to raves completely sober. Either way, I had a brilliant time. If you choose to do drugs, I suggest doing it responsibly.  Click here and read about being a responsible raver.

My only comment on sex is it’s your business. Might I suggest though, that you use protection as not to catch something or get knocked up.

There are many sites on the web with great information. If I missed something, post a comment and I will try to help you out. You can also use this really nifty new thing called the interwebs to search for the answer to your particular question. Honestly, I’m sure someone has had the same question as you and I’m sure you will find the answer fairly quickly.

I hope this helps the next generation of ravers. I’m looking forward to meeting you newbies at the next big event!

Have fun and party safe M’Friends!

PLUR~

Ello Friends,

Here’s a lil video  of some of the phat pants I’ve made over the years.

This is by no means all of the rave pants I’ve made, it’s just a small selection of some of my favorites. I’ve been making phat pants for about 15 years now and selling them for over 10 years.

I get asked all the time if I actually wear phat pants and the answer is YES! I also get asked if I go to raves and the answer is YES! I have been going to raves for about 16 years now and I still love the music and adore the people I meet while I’m out.

The song in the video was made by a long time friend DJ Iguana and he gave me permission to use it.

===================================================================

Here’s what my customers are saying about my shop:

The invader zim rave pants are amazing. They are shiny, super light reflective, comfy and sized so well. Its the best thing ever created. I received them with the speed of a thousand magic bullets and got responses to my silly questions faster than I could click. I will be shopping here frequently for more awesome stuff. THANK YOU SHAYNA! You are truly creating amazing things and have brightened my wedding (these are so awesome we’re getting married in them) and my life by sharing these with us.

Testimonial by: Cody

Thanks to Shayna, I’m now the proud owner of a totally awesome pair of Invader Zim Pants! At any other store, the owners are looking to just get some money and care little for the customer…but throughout the whole process Shayna was there to answer any questions I had with a smile! She’s very approachable, friendly, and just overall great! If you’re second guessing yourself about buying something here…don’t!

Because all of you are number 1 in my book! Oh man, I am in love with these pants! It was very hard not to touch them inappropriately, LOL! It almost killed me to waste so much fabric but I had to cut the panels just right to get all the characters featured on each panel.

So on the front you have Big Bird , The Count and Oscar The Grouch! Then on the back you have Mine and my Boyfriend Blake’s favorite character COOKIE MONSTER! The backs also feature Grover and Bert!

They have a secret stash pocket and 2 side pockets with reflective trim accents and hidden velcro closures.
