Danibear: 60% of this website's visits come from search engines, so I don't find it surprising, lol. I wish more people learned about it the traditional way through raves, but raves are a lot harder to find than internet access and aren't suitable for young teenagers. Lately I've been trying to think of all these internet kandi makers as ravers in training. Hopefully they will start attending raves when they're able to and will already have a basic understanding of how to behave I think these internet kandi makers have the potential to become wonderful kandi kids. Getting involved with the scene because of kandi isn't ideal, but it's a lot better than getting involved with it because of drugs.

I can't believe how of you said from google, [especially the botdf one??] That's lame. [Not calling you lame, how you started] I mean I first found out about kandi from when I met my bf three years ago, he gave me a single, plur style, and I loved it cause it said I Love Boobies [before people always had those] and he actually goes to raves [drives two hours] just for the music, and I have always been into beading but since he showed me kandi I started making him kandi for raves alllllll the time haha. And he told me that he found out about kandi at his first rave in Seattle like three summers ago.

I had friends at school who rave and they loved talking about it and one of them mentioned kandi and I looked it up, thought it was cute and creative so I decided to start making it, after doing as much research as I could on raves, PLURR, the rave culture etc.

I went on quizazz for a song quiz because I was bored and I got SMyD-Botdf and I started to listen to them and then I listened to Save The Rave so I googled Rave and eventually I can across kandi kid so then I googled that and thought it was pretty cool and kawaii so I started to make kandi after I learned about ravces, PLUR, etc..

I started making kandi because I got in a weird bus accident. After that I got really anxious and jumpy. So while scrolling around youtube and google I found pictures and tutorials and sorta got hooked. First it was to kinda calm me down but now it is a hobby.

I was searching for stuff to make with pony beads I had bought and I stumbled upon here. Ever since I've been in love with it before I knew about the raving or PLUR or any of that.

my older sister was really into the whole techno thing when I was little, so I started listening to that type of music too. The when she moved to London, she told me about a store called CyberDog, and I saw the fluffies for the first time in their online store. Then I google imaged them, and found pictures of Kandi Ravers wearing bracelets that my best friend knew how to make. I then asked my best friend how to make her bracelets which she told me was called kandi, and she taught me how to make a diagonal striped cuff. Then she lead me to cellularmango, occeanrose1, and gingercand-e on youtube, and this site. I have been making kandi since, and even put out the whole kandi kid persona, though....sadly i havent found a local rave yet...

My older sister used to be a raver and she got me into the rave scene which in turn, got me into kandi c: Plus, I've been tired of looking like everyone else around and it's fun to look and be different
