EDC ProTip: Where to Find Last Minute Rave Gear

Written by: Margaret Kern

EDC Las Vegas 2015 is less than four weeks away and most of you already have your outfits and costumes ready go. But if your costumes need a few finishing touches, or you’re just a procrastinator like myself, here’s a few websites to get your last-minute rave gear.

Amazon is a great place to go if you’ve got most of your outfits put together or at least planned out. You’ll be able to find anything from fluffies and fanny packs to waterproof cases for your smart phone, and they offer 2-day and next day shipping for almost everything on the site. The only downside to using Amazon for last-minute gear is that it’s the largest internet based retailer as opposed to specifically catering to ravers. If you have no idea what you’re looking for, you’re going to have a bit of a hard time filtering through the millions of items listed on the site.

Since Etsy has 1.4million active sellers, you won’t have an issue finding anything raver related. If you’re looking for something unique and special, this is definitely the place for you. Most of the items listed on this site are custom-made to order, that being said it takes a little longer to receive your items. Make sure you contact the seller BEFORE you purchase anything to confirm it’ll arrive in time for EDC.

Obviously iHeartRaves is the place to go for rave gear. They have everything you’ll need from booty shorts to el wire, and their standard shipping is pretty fast. I live in Minnesota and whatever I order usually arrives within 3 or 4 days. If you live in Los Angeles, CA or Miami, FL you can actually visit their physical store and check things out as well.

This site is great for the ladies! There’s a ton tops and bottoms with insanely unique prints. The best part about this site is everything is reasonably priced with free shipping over $50, and a great return policy. There’s also a pair of pizza pasties listed on the site that can’t go without mentioning.

I like to call this site my hidden gem. Unless you’re a stripper or a gogo dancer, you’ve probably never heard of Yandy, but let me tell you it’s great! There’s actually a “rave” section on the site with over 1500 items, not including the 1200 items under their “rave accessories” tab. Yandy also has great Plus Size section with lightning fast standard shipping that’s free with orders over $70. You also get a free lace panty with every order.

Planning your costumes and outfits is a big part of the EDC experience for most people. So don’t wait until the last second to figure things out, otherwise you’ll end up buying a an over priced tutu from a hotel gift shop!
