Eight Fashion Looks for Beyond Wonderland SoCal
The signature colors of the cat in the animated Alice in Wonderland are pink and purple, so these finds may give you the Cheshire grin as they mimic that combination. This set from The Lyte Couture and t-shirt from Frazy Designs offers inspiration for femme and masc-presenting festival attendees. Mix and match elements of pink and purple in your outfit for the ideal reference to the character. Accessories that would fit well with this would be any acid trippy or lunar designs. Luminescent glow-in-the-dark accessories would match well, too, to refer to the feline’s glowing eyes and smile.
If your confidence defines you as the main character, a look inspired by Alice is perfect. Her signature maid dress and apron incorporate elements of blue and white paired with her blonde hair for hints of yellow or gold. These fits from DDLG Playground and Killer Kings serve as festival-friendly inspirations for your days in Wonderland. Femme options could incorporate white lace and bows for accessories, and masc options couple include gold detailed accessories.
Queen of Hearts
Do you have main character energy but want to go a darker alternative route for your outfit? Check out the Meowcos set with red roses and Freedom Rave Wear’s unisex t-shirt with house of cards symbols on it for the ultimate fit inspired by the authoritarian Queen of Hearts. Accessories for any outfit could include red and/or black additions of ross, hearts, or house of card symbols, even a crown to top of the whole look.

Time is ticking to get that perfect outfit for tea time! Scurry quickly to get the set from Moe Flavor or the kimono from That Electric Touch to reference your outfit to the iconic white rabbit from the films. A bunny ear headband, white accessories, and a pocket watch are great examples of additives to your white rabbit outfit. Make sure to snag these soon so you won’t be late, late for a very important date.
If you don’t want to dress as a movie character but still want to match the theme of the festival, a trippy print could be your ultimate outfit for one or both days. Several of these types of prints have been on the festival fashion market for years, so the options are endless; you may even already own at least one of these types of prints. This set from Electric By Mar and shirt and shorts from CraztCatz are exemplary, and the femme set even has floral detailing to reference the singing flowers in the animated Alice In Wonderland.
For those on the edgier, darker side of things, an outfit inspired by the infamous Jabberwocky could be executed. A monochrome or silver outfit, like those depicted from Badinka, could be a great outfit basis. Accessories that would match perfectly for reference would be anything with scales, wings, or jewelry also of silver or monochrome color. This dragon-like creature from the live-action film also has glowing red eyes, so red lenses or sunglasses would also be a perfect addition.
If you want a softer, more fairytale outfit, one inspired by the singing garden of flowers would be ideal. Floral patterns, of course, are the perfect match inspired by the garden’s plethora of flower species. The pictured set from Cervantes Rave Co and the vest from SassyPants The Label utilizes vibrant floral designs. The best accessories to match your outfit would be items with flowers, leaves, or stems.
‘Who are you” without a stunning outfit? For those with amassed veteran festival wisdom, Absolem should serve as inspiration for your defining outfit. The blue caterpillar-turned-butterfly definitely calls for butterfly prints and detailing, like those on the Daisy Daydreamz bodysuit and Rave Nomad’s butterfly board shorts. The most fitting accessories to add would be any items with butterflies, flowers, caterpillars, or referencing to grey smoke like Absolem’s hookah he notably smoked.
