Thread: Full Costumes?

  1. #1

    Default Full Costumes?

    I am planning to dress up for coachella and want to make a full EL Suit with helmet. Would a helmet be allowed? also, if i was a boxy robot, would that be allowed? It just seems a bit much for security to deal with and can easily see them saying no?

    I think that is a horrible idea. I have seen people in camping dressed up like this...but, really...is this necessary? Just wear skinny jeans and a clever/ironic graphic t-shirt like the rest of the hipsters.

    Wear a costume! It's about 100x better.

    I wore a Max hat last year (from a where the wild-things are costume), and my friend had a cardboard jaws head popping out of the water mask. It was the best decision ever. It's really fun to have strangers come and talk to you all day even if you're shy like me. I ended up posing for pictures with about 10,000 different people. It makes the whole weekend radically better...

    Silly >> cool any day of the week.

    Also, I've seen El-wire suits before at coachella so you should be fine by security. Just make sure you don't overheat and die.

    Plus, you didn't even mention that cardboard is very comfortable.

    Anything close to a almost full birthday suit is probably the best bet for coachella, just don't forget the sunblock.

    In 2004, I saw Jesus wearing a crown of Christmas lights, and they were lit. In 2007, there was a guy running around in a full wolf costume. I imagine costumes are still okay.

    My friend brought in a light up helmet last year no problem. Just make sure you have a locker you can throw it in until sundown.

    I gotta ask:
    WTF is up with you IDIOTS that dress up.

    LOOK AT ME!! LOOK AT ME!!!!

    You fn retards that are more concerned about how many people looked at you than you are relaxing and enjoying the festival.

    Note that the people looking at you think you are a retard who'll either be
    A - the next fuck we see onthe news for shooting up a school
    B - a loser who plays video games all day, hsnt been laid and will never...then will turn into The next fuck who shoots some place up.

    Have fun, stop trying to be the show...at the show.

    Grow the fuck up!
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    speaking of growing the fuck up...(aside from having a stepbrothers reference in your signature, nice ironic job there)
    live and let live dominates any mature way of thinking. if you don't like costumes, well, don't wear one. if you think people in costumes are silly and you don't want to associate and meet people and be open, well that's all fine as well, but that definitely should not be your dominating vibe at a festival.

    nothing is weird. fight the culture in you

    Nice to think about Coachella as a festival, as opposed to a bunch of concerts. Go nuts.

    Dressing like an idiot so that everyone looks at you isn't fighting the culture.
    And some of you need to THINK before you go...I've seen a guy that had a small patch covering his dick and that was it. His friends and everyone looked at him as a fuck who has no brain cells. It's no different than going to a football game and invite your friend who comes out in face paint and a f'n clown costume. They look stupid and they are more concerned about BEING THE SHOW than WATCHING THE SHOW.

    People that have the attitude...'Look at Me!' Look at me!" are mentally messed up. Grow up, you don't need a costume to have fun.

    I don't see why all the angry responses... if you don't want to wear a costume don't, as long as someone doesn't get in your way what's the problem? I'm not sure how someone else getting all halloween'd out ruins your day. Maybe we should all wear our khakis and dockers like it's a normal day at work so nobody gets distracted...

    Anyway, the whole argument is kind of silly since there's a huge electronica/rave/burning man contingent at Coachella and those fucking kids love getting dressed up all kinds of weird. In the Sahara or DoLab probably 1-5 people is dressed some kind of crazy.

    I enjoy costume watching. Only time I have ever done it was Halloween @ Bassnectar last year. Doubt I could handle it in the Indio sun

    i remember last year there was a guy who wore an Elmo head all 3 days. he seemed to be there by himself and didn't seem to be trying to attract any attention. in fact, he seemed to pout the whole time. i was puzzled as to why someone would purposely look like a retard, but NOT try to attract attention

    I prefer to go naked, because it's a beautiful thing. Most of the time I just dress as a wizard, though.

    Costumes are great when you're on drugs and enjoying the festival with a group of people

    WAY EASY TO FIND EVERYONE

    "look for me with the devil tail and the colonial wig"

    we all found eachother pretty fast
