Ultra Music Festival Fashion: Some Interesting Specimens (Photos)

Why do pigs always gotta be on ravers backs, man?

​Ultra Fest is like candy for the senses, one of which is, of course, sight. 

While the sternum vibrates with each bass hit and the ears are tickled by tweaks, blips, and beeps from the towers of speakers, the eyes are dazzled not only by the trance inducing visuals on the backdrop video screens, the flashing lights, and the hypnotic rhythm of the fist pumps from the DJs onstage but also by the zany outfits donned by the jubilant festgoers frolicking the grounds.

Indeed, without these folks going all out with their garb, the Ultra experience would not be nearly as hallucinatory. With characters like the ones in these photos, it's easy to forget that there is a world outside the Ultra gates with cars, restaurants, and gravity. 

County Grind stepped into the fantasyland that is Ultra and brought back images of some of the more interesting creatures for your enjoyment.

The boy, the floating skull, and the frog made for a great team. As the night went on, their conversations grew more and more interesting.

This crew called the Hypnotic Gurlz actually flew away after this shot was taken. Their ability to fly totally makes up for their misspelling of the word "girls" on their business card.

This guy Molly made lots of people feel great. People love this guy! Who knew he was a Giants fan?

The gal on the right must have been so embarrassed to be with the one on the left, whose furry leg warmers did not match her tutu. Faux pas!

"Hello, is this the leg warmer delivery service? Yeah, I'd like to order some metallic blue and pink warmers, extra furry. Yeah, I'm spinning around in circles in front of the Afrojak stage. Thanks, see you soon."

"Am I actually purring, or is this bass really loud and fucking amazing?!"

Wow, the scene has changed so much. I long for the days when it was social misfits and rejects. Now it looks like a bunch of girls trying to be 'cute.'
