If you’re on a budget, or you haven’t got much time before a rave you’re planning to attend, one of the most popular alternatives to buying ordinary clothes is to combine unusual accessories and make modifications to existing clothes. Knowing what you can do is often a stumbling block because people are not used to making alterations to their clothes. They worry about making mistakes or getting it wrong. However, this need not be the case, and in the article to follow, we will share with you some ways of making DIY rave outfits.
- Research Styles Of Outfit
Before you begin making purchases or starting to modify clothing that you already have, you should take a look at the Internet to see what some of the most common themes and trends are currently. This will help you to ensure your style fits in with what other people are most likely to wear and makes sure that if it does attract attention, it’s the right kind of attention. There are many variations of rave outfits, including alien outfits, neon outfits, and psychedelic outfits. The ones you’ll want to base your design on depends on what’s trending and what your personal preferences are.
- Painting And Sewing
If you’ve got some old or well-used items of clothing in your home, such as booty shorts from previous raves, then you might like to decorate them. One way to do this is to paint on some patterns or blocks of color. The paint won’t last long, but it doesn’t have to. It only has to be sufficient for one night of raving, and then you can scrape it off or wash it. Alternatively, you might like to do some embroidery and use your sewing skills. This usually means attaching certain fabrics or patterns onto pieces of existing clothing that you already own. Examples of doing this include adding leather to shirts and jackets or threading on some sequins. The good news is that even if your sewing abilities leave a lot to be desired, you’ll be fine because rough-looking clothes are exactly what you want!
Another important component to consider when making a DIY rave outfit is what accessories you might bring along with you. These often include sunglasses, flashing gloves, or luminous clothing. These not only add some light and color to your clothes but can also make it easier for people to spot you and for you to light up the path in front of you. Sunglasses are also a handy way to block out any excessive brightness from laser lights in your rave venue. This means accessories are not just decorative, but useful as well.
Going to a rave is fun no matter what, but you’ll have even more fun if you make your clothes before attending. Sometimes this means creating the fabric yourself, but most of the time it means making simple adjustments to clothes that you already own. Hopefully, some of the ideas in this article will be good enough to get you started.
