Whether you are looking for a unique costume idea, or actually heading to a rave, consider the following ideas to stand out. Rave parties are like a big costume party anyway. You may want to check out some photos of a rave online to see what is expected.
Even within the costume party theme there are certain things expected. Dress in comfortable, shockingly bright clothing.
What you will need to create a Rave Girl outfit;
White bikini top
White booty shorts
White comfortable shoes
Sheer fluorescent fabric or fishnet
Fluorescent paint or RITT dye
Start by splatter painting the white bikini top, booty shorts and shoes with fluorescent paints. When choosing fabric paint colors just think of the color of highlighters. RITT clothing dye can also be used to customize your outfit. The outfit should be made of bright day-glo colors. UV sensitive because of the black light often seen at a rave.
Create a simple sheer cover from the bright fabric. Layers really make the outfit, use bright orange, hot pink, bright yellow or purple. Cut out a front and a back and then lace the top together with ribbons. Simple harem pants can be made as a cover up in the same fashion; cutting out a front and a back piece and then lacing up the sides. Loosely tie at the waist and ankles.
You’ll want to choose, or make loose clothing that is easy to move in. Your shoes should be comfortable. Brightly splattered tennis shoes or other flat shoes are best. Leave the high heels at home. Although for a rave girl Halloween costume you can get away with platform shoes or bright white or colored go go boots.
Pile on the bright makeup; glittery eyelashes and heavy colorful eye shadows. Choose stage makeup rather than your normal everyday makeup brands. The colors are truer and meant to last through anything, even an hours long dance party. You can find this type of makeup at a costume shop.
Rave girls can add futuristic accessories. Fairies, princesses or cartoon characters also go well with the extreme look of a rave costume. Add a piece of a child’s Halloween costume like fairy wings, antennae or a small stuffed animal backpack.
Finally, tie a pacifier around your neck with a long length of ribbon. Rave girls are often seen with these tied around their neck. They are actually a part of the look because of the popularity of the drug ecstasy. The pacifier helps to counterbalance the effects which include involuntary teeth grinding. Choose a pacifier with a glow stick inside for a fun look.
