I was never much of a raver. I was too busy getting moody and sullen with my punk music and my whiny indie rock to ever delve too deeply into the rave scene. But even I couldn’t escape the rave fashion of the ’90s; I once bought a horrible synthetic fabric maxi skirt from Philly’s resident tacky rave wear shop, Agent Aloha.  The image of women in ’90s rave culture, was curious: Women were somewhat sexualized––the standard outfit was oversized, crazy-big pants paired with a baby T and sneakers––but also infantilized, particularly within the candy raver scene, where sucking on pacifiers was de riguer.
