Do you wear kandi?

81 posts in this topic

How many people still rock beads and ufos at parties? I sometimes feel like an outcast. Only place I fit in is cyberaver shows. I doubt I will ever grow up.

I wear them, almost everyday because I make them....aden wears them too...I've made him a color for every outfit....most of the east coasters wear them because I've made it for them or because they made it for themselves....

 

I feel weird sometimes...ppl ask me where I got the pretty bracelet and I'm like...in my house. lol

I used to wear UFOs everyday and quite a few pieces of kandi, but as times move on I dont really wear UFOs anymore unless im feeling frisky at the house or wanting to be very comfortable. I now wear about two pieces of kandi and when I have time, make more and switch them out, not more than 2 or 3 because it disrupts my stringing.

i hang them up in my room but i no longer wear them because it fucks up my dancing and stringing. it hurts my wrists when i do some moves or give me bead burn or string burn. or if its am important one it always tends to fall apart at raves and i lose it.

I'm a New York freehander and I'm a kandi kid on weekends: UFOs, stuffed animal backpack, the whole works - at age 21 and a junior in college too. Kandi becomes a problem for freehanding, especially with large cuffs, but that's what the backpack is for.

 

Kandi is an important part of the culture, and I don't mind being the only kandi kid at some parties because I always get a few people getting nostalgic when I offer them bracelets in trade or freely. Especially surrounding lightshows, I've found that a good lightshow will always land you a really cool bracelet.

 

To be fair, being a kandi kid is a lot easier in cities like New York or Toronto from what I hear. Parties like Candyball are very conducive to the style. Places like D.C. tend to be a little more resentful and elitist about it, usually cheered on by the idea that raves are "dead" and I'm just "posing".

 

Whatever... PLUR :P.

and i wear candy a little bit, i only have about 4 pieces if even that much.

 

i need to buy some ufo's bad, but they are soo expensive, anyone know of a good website to buy them from?

Never have, probably never will...

 

I have nothing against it, it's just not my thing.

I kandi myself up a lot at most parties, I've found ways of doing it without causing any dancing problems.

I wear kandi and ufos. UFOs are sooo comfy. I only have 2 pairs at the moment, but I love them. I just recently started making kandi and I wore a bunch when I went to Tampa to see DJ Tiesto. I gave some away to Jamis and Kyle, and I gave some away when I went out for Halloween dressed as a kandi kid. Time to make more. *looks at box of beads*

most of my big rave pants ive had to throw away, but i got a few still.

 

with the candy i got a 50 pack of cd spindle case, filled with them

usually givin to me after i do some lightshows or from some of my frequent party friends i hung out with alot like a pair of boobs :P

dont really like wearing them though, because they either fly off, get destroyed, or get caught by the gs hook
