I Want These Rave Gloves So I Can Blow My Kid's Mind

Okay, my rave days are long, long over. But I still want some of these EmazingLights gloves that the dude in this video has (who is apparently and unfortunately named Skidz) because I'm sure they would blow my one-year-old's mind.

When I was going to raves people wore white gloves, without the lit up fingertips. Even those were cool! And, I know I'm showing my age here, but do people still wear gloves to raves? Are they still called raves? Does Oaksie still play? What the hell is a Skrillex? (I'm kidding, I'm kidding. I know that Skrillex is the name of a Deadmou6 song, right?)

But in any case, while you won't catch me at the Identity Festival, I'd still love to have these gloves just to play with my baby. She would love to watch them. I mean, if you think about it, being high on ecstasy is a lot like being a baby. Everything is amazing! I love the music! I love you! Let's hug! I accidentally pooped.


And even more to the point, I'd love to wear them jogging at night. Because I'm old. And don't rave. But I do exercise regularly (and floss). Kill 'em Skrillex. [EmazingLights via Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg]

UPDATE: I've received confirmation from Steven Aguiar via Twitter that these light up gloves are, in fact, seen at Skrillex shows. Repeat: they are seen at Skrillex.

The only problem with these gloves is that all Insomniac Events (mostly in So Cal) ban them so if they catch you with them as you enter you have to toss them...and they aren't free.

And yes they are still called raves, and some people wear gloves but it's not all too common.
