If there’s one thing to know about the crowd at this weekend’s Electric Daisy Carnival, it’s that they don’t do anything halfway -- and that especially applies to getting dressed up.

Among the weekend’s greatest spectacles (and there were many) at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was the endless variety of wild sartorial choices that made the event feel like neon Halloween. Clothing, particularly for the ladies, was kept to a minimum, but the creativity behind achieving that minimum never failed to impress; while some fans bought ready-made costumes, even more took the DIY route to create their unique looks.

While no two looks were identical (unless, of course, that was the look you were going for), common style choices included floral garlands, furry and/or platform boots and rainbow-hued tutus for the women; among the men, a bare chest and suspenders was a popular look, as were neon or light-up eyewear and animal-inspired headgear.

From floral pasties to animal suits to Darth Vader helmets, here’s a look at the eclectic styles of the 2012 Electric Daisy Carnival.
