I was given the name sunshine when I went to my first rave because I had a huge smile on my face and it just stuck I’m just happy it was something I was already used to being called

My first rave name.. way back in 99' was Chewi (Chewbacca) since I could do the growl perfectly and I had a ton of fun doing it in people's ears cause it would freak em out. (in a good way xD)
After I fell out of the scene, and lost the ability to growl (took too long to quit smoking.. dont do it kids its bad bad)

I decided to get back into the scene and start back doing some DJ'ing so when I decided on my new name for DJ'ing I decided to just use that for my rave name as well, since I would be meeting people anyway, might as well network at the same time
I kinda felt like it wouldn't be proper to revive the old name though, since it had been so long. (I do tell people I see from back in the day that I was Chewi)

I picked the name StarShak3r pretty much because of Sailor Moon and the StarLights.
I always felt like I was a completely different person once I got to the club. I'm normally super reserved and introverted, but once that soundwave takes over, its like a completely different me emerges. (if you ever read the manga you'll know what I mean about the Starlights)
So.. in homage to Sailor Star Fighter, Sailor Star Healer, and Sailor Star Maker.. I picked StarShaker (but I had to use a 3 cause some bar utensil company has the other one so i couldn't make a webpage lol)

Plus it kinda fits in with the whole PsyTrance thing I double-love PsyTrance, Tech Trance, and anything with a flyaway arpeggio in it

Before I even started raving I was given the name Lil' Mermaid because I have super long red hair. It didn't really stick. Well I started raving and every time I introduced myself I'd say "My name is Symon!" and people would say "Oh like Simon Says?" and it was a repeated thing ALWAYS and I started getting tired of it lol

But one day I started introducing myself "My name is Symon. Like Symon Says!" and all of my friends around me were like "That's it! Your rave name is Says!"

Mine (Kandikid55) actually started as a basic user/handle for stuff and eventually people online just started calling me Kandi and it just stuck so ya like 7 years later I still go by it.

They call me a few things, The Reaper or Shadow Reaper, all are because I fashion my own Scythes and dance with them as well as walk across and around festival grounds with them/ scare people with them. It feels awesome people always recognize me and yell "REAPER!" I even went to a show where they literally wrote a song about me, On top of always carrying a scythe I also design my own awesome costumes to go with my dark and scary makeup- if i wear any clothes at all-- xD

I've had a few rave names actually! My first was Breezy and I didn't really know about rave names at that time, but this guy used to call me that all the time and I didn't really talk to anyone else. My second was given to me by my fiancé, Zipper. I never really felt like that fit well, then I was at a party chatting with this hardcore DJ from TX and he said "I love you Brenna, you are like the queen of the bros! You're Bronna!" and I just loved that <3

I'm friends with a few ravers, a couple called "Scammer" and "Doobie". Since I'm still young, at 17, but have a strong passion for raving, i got called "Kotton Kandi" since I'm so sweet and young, but I've been trying to come up with a one-word name, and once considered "Molly" or "Mandy" but not sure if that's appropriate? Even though it fits my happy personality lol
