WEEKLY WIN: RAVERS
As many of you already know, I’m getting massive amounts of inspiration for my new stuff from the rave culture. Not so much as it is today but what it used to be when it was in full bloom in the early 90’s. I’ve had some friends who are actually responsible for starting the raves here in LA and their stories are off the hook. There was a term PLUR created during these times which stands for Peace, Love, Unity and Respect. I actually came up with I.L.U. way before I ever learned about PLUR so it was cool to realize how naturally what I stand for connects with this cultural phenomena. Rave fashion is definitely a component in BubbleGoth and I actually have a separate drawer for all the kandi bracelets you sweet MoonChildren have made for me.
I know for many kids going to a rave is about doing ecstasy. I personally have never tried it cause there’s a lot of bad quality stuff out there and If I ever do it, it’s gonna be for some very special occasion and just once.
I feel like getting out, dressing up all crazy and hanging out with people who are there to connect with each other and with the spirit dancing the night away is enough of a high in itself. Plus I’m not really into drugs cause there are better and cheaper ways of getting high that are actually good for you. I’ll post about something I’ve found for myself tomorrow.
Lots of Love,
