Check out Crossfade's 57-photo slideshow of "The Fashion at Ultra Music Festival 2014."

Beats, beauties, bass, booties, brawn, bras, and some valuable life experience. That's what it takes to make an Ultra Music Festival, as far as a fashionista is concerned.

You've never seen anything like the get-ups these people wear for their get-down. Luckily, you don't need to go to Ultra to enjoy the sights. (The sounds we can't help you with.)

Here are Ultra 2014's top 20 raver looks.

Someone needs to tell these guys the Party Rock movement died about two years ago.

We saw a lot of kilts rockin' in the wind this Ultra season. We can only guess that some of those St. Paddy's hangovers were still ragin'.

Florida's got medical marijuana on the ballot, and tons of Ultra partiers were showing support for the measure with their choice of clothes. This girl was actually one of the most heavily dressed pot proponents.

Can we go to the Candyland that this fashionista just came from? Talk about originality. It's rare to see someone so bedecked and brilliant in the modern rave age.

Matching your best bud is still en vogue at the American rave. We don't really understand why this "Thing" is "-5." But kudos for making it your own?

We also saw a lot of unicorns at Ultra 2014. They were stuffed, blow-up, small Asian girls, etc. This one is definitely our favorite, though.

Of course, rainbows never go out of style. Here are two great ways to rock the spectrum of visible light. You can use it to hide from the sun or just to brighten up your day.

We saw a lot of young girls with pacifiers. Maybe it's a baby thing?

Oh wait, here's a grown-ass man, and he has two! He must be double-faced?

More rainbows! This time, it's fellas in red, green, blue, orange, purple, pink ... We love a man who isn't afraid to get a little weird. Put a wig on, grab some tights, lace up your sensible shoes, and you're ready to rock!

Gems were bigger than ever at Ultra this year, and we saw some people getting really creative with 'em. But this girl wins the prize, for suresies.

This is the cutest couple ever! We love their body paint, and we love their yoga pose duet. These kids are doing it right.

We saw so many flags at Ultra. But this was definitely the best display of national pride. Long live the queen!

Decades into the kandi culture, and it's bigger and brighter than ever before. We can only imagine the hours logged creating these plastic jewels. We're crying for landfills everywhere ...

These crazy animal riders were all over the place, and they were something new for sure. Nothing is more LOL-able than seeing a group of buddies dancing on dinos.

Who would have thought Molly was still a big draw. Hardwell managed to keep his status at No. 1 DJ as well. Coincidence?

We talk a lot about how young the Ultra crowd is, but it's also pretty gray. Raver Grandpa is sick! We hope his lady friends and grandkids know how lucky they really are.

Yes! This is the kind of sassy fashion we can't get enough of. These poses, these looks -- they're dripping with swag. It makes us think of the good ole days, before everyone pretty much wore the same party uniform as everyone else.

How did they get their lipstick to be so cute and so long-lasting? It's also adorable that these girls are entirely Japanese. They just love Ultra and the U.S.A.

And because we love you, here are a couple of nearly naked women. Oh, Ultra. See you next year.
