Crazy costumes have always been a big part of the electronic music party scene. But these days, you're nobody unless you're pretending to be somebody you're really not.

Perhaps it's the sense of anonymity that comes with a disguise. Or maybe it's because every single one of you is an attention-starved child. Whatever the case, we commend your creativity, your ingenuity, and most importantly, your near-nudity.

Here are our favorite funky fashionistas from Holy Ship!!!

Shippers don't mess around! Standing in the customs line to get on the boat, this delicious taco was already dressed and ready for fun. We figured she must be a big supporter of Dillon Francis, AKA Taco Bell's number-one fan, but she wasn't the only one. Tacos were one of the most popular costumes of Holy Ship!!! 2014. We must have seen at least ten tacos. Some people even brought Taco Bell flags and signs. So fuck that lil' Chihuahua, Francis is the best spokesman the fast food chain has ever had.

It's a gorilla! No one has ever worn a giant animal costume to a music festival before! Someone get bro an award for originality! But sarcastic laughter aside, we'd actually like to give the guy props for being so wholly dedicated to playing this classy, captain's hat-wearing ape. With just a single banana on the plate, he must be a method actor. And before you go calling us sexist, that's clearly a man in there. It's ship policy that all women have their tits out at all times. Believe us. We were there.
