Be The First To Share This With Your Friends

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!
