Club Candids: Just Keep Raving IV at Stratus

Ravers are an ultra-colorful bunch, to say the least.

For example, if you happened to hanging out at Stratus this past weekend, your eyeballs likely woulda exploded from the onslaught of outrageous outfits, multi-colored madness, and bizarre behavior.

The event was called Just Keep Raving IV, and the cast of kooky characters in attendance was anything but ordinary. 

There were brozillas dressed like ninja turtles, a doppelganger of Deadmau5, cats dressed as...uh, cats, and a slew of kaleidoscopic creatures of the night.

Oh yeah, and there was also plenty of killer dance music to be heard via the dozens of DJs working the wheels of steel into the wee hours.

Though it almost caused our camera to overload, Club Candids braved the rave scene for a glimpse at what goes on inside Stratus well after the witching hour. Get a gander at what we saw in this week's slideshow.
