A “RAVE” review! – Highly recommended for ANYONE who likes being used & abused! It takes all kinds to make up this crazy world and if you're unique (or just a social deviate) you gotta shop here!
From rock & goth attire to vintage clothing for the flower child within, Rave's caters to all off us misfits. Whether you're a goth, rocker, hippy, belly dancer or cross dresser, we are ALL accepted here.
Rave loves us ALL and abuses us equally. Although she's a retired dom, she can still give you the verbal "lashing" you so deserve (equal opportunity abuse for any sub).
Rave may be demanding and down right abrasive at times, but that's all part of her (retired) dom charm.
We luv you Rave!
High Pressure Sales, overly familiar and a wack job – Raves has a large space with a lot of stuff. But you better not expect reasonable service or accurate information.
I wanted a corset similar to one I already owned. I emailed Raves asking for the exact brand, model and size. She couldn't tell me if she had them in stock so I ordered it online from the maker. I was trying to save time, I didn't want to run out to the store if they didn't have the item I wanted and I didn't want to be fitted by her staff.
I STUPIDLY mentioned to Raven that I had ordered it online when she couldn't help me. She called the manufacturer and had them cancel my order because she has an exclusive.
PLUS she threatened the maker with canceling all business even though the manufacturer had no fault in this whatsoever!!!
You can be assured that I will NEVER purchase anything from Oh My Goth.
There are too many online sources plus good old local standbys like Fashion Nation to deal with insanity.
MY FAVORITE STORE EVER!!!!!!! – My husband and I make special weekend trips to Denver just to go to 'Raves Oh My Goth'. If you want something unique, with an incredible and extremely entertaining staff, this is the place to be.
I have never had a bad experience at this store, and always feel like their #1 customer. That is hard to find in most stores.
Raves has amazing corsets...and we are not talking about the pretend corsets you can get at victoria's secret...these are figure altering, life changing pieces of heaven!!! ( I have 3 now ). Ladies, bring your man, he will have as much fun shopping as you will. They have great shirts for guys, and other fun and unique items.
PS. I LOVE my new purple, sparkly, Rock Rebel, tatoo bag. Women stop me everywhere to ask., "Where did you get that, it's fabulous!!" RAVES, honey... I got it at RAVES!!!!!
Awesome staff and great selection – Rave's rules!! I went in there looking for a shirt for an up coming event and was helped by a staff member named Tristan, a snazzy dresser and one hell of a nice guy. I've never been disappointed when I go in there, the staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to make sure you leave happy. Anyone who says different about Rave, her store or her staff is just plain fullashit.
Best Place for REAL Corsets & Employees that KNOW what they're talking about. – This place is the coolest place in Denver. They have a great selection in good quality items, not like places in the mall with cheap stuff.
I met the owner the first day I walked into the store. She was so funny and friendly. We talked quite a bit. A friend of mine has been a long time customer and finally got me in the store.
I was hooked on this place the moment I saw the quality of the corsets. Raven, the owner, has spent a great deal of time training and retraining her employees so they know almost as much as she does. I'm already planning my next corset purchases! Don't compare prices for these corset with the cheap ones in other stores. These will last you for years. My friend has five of them from Raven's. Some of them were purchased years ago, and are still in great condition even with daily "faire" wear.
The goth wear is great and I love reading the patches. The jewelry and nic nacs are very cool. I love the baby clothes, too.
Remember! This isn't Wallyworld. It's a sole propritorship. Raven is very involved in her store. She takes pride in all she does and it shows! Show some respect while you're there and you'll be treated like a longtime friend.
I will not purchase a corset from any place else!!!
Rave's Rocks. end of story. – My husband and I have been longtime shoppers at Rave's Oh My Goth. We can't leave her store without buying something... she has the best gothwear in Denver. She searches the ends of the earth to find the most unique merchandise for her store. From clubwear to fetishwear and accessories to boots/shoes to home decor items to AMAZING jewelry to casual-everyday-goth stuff to fancy ren-fest/victorian garb... oh, and did I mention her corset selection? You want a corset... Rave can get you exactly what you want and it will fit you perfectly. I have two gorgeous corsets from her... and when you buy a corset from her you are enrolled in her corset club and you'll receive future discounts on every corset you buy thereafter. Not that you'd need the discount... her corset prices can't be beat. She has a corset sale every year, not to mention cool stuff on the sale r ack (funny, Citysearch won't let me use the word r a c k, so I'm going to space it out!) all the time. Her shoe prices are amazing... I won't go anywhere else for gothic boots or shoes.
Anyway, I highly recommend shopping at Rave's. Be sure you have plenty of time... there's always a ton to look at and Rave and her crew are always fun to chat with.
Great store! – Rave's is an awesome store. If you're in the market for FETlSH, goth, or rockabilly clothes, this is the place to go. The store is HUGE and has an awesome selection. If you don't see what you like on one visit, come back in a week or so and there'll probably be new stuff. There's an excellent selection of shoes and boots there too, so if you need something new for dancing, get your butt in there!
The thing that really sets it apart from the other stores of it's kind here in Denver is that it's the only store in Colorado that sells custom corsets. Yes, other stores have corsets but none of them will do them to your specs. She has corsets there that you can walk out that day with but if you like the style but want it in another color, you can get it. There's a large selection of styles that will fit just about everybody. And if you order a custom corset and let her get a picture of it, you're guaranteed that you won't see your corset on someone else. Get that at any other store around here!
Her employees know their stuff and if you should ask them a question that they don't know, they'll find the right answer and not just answer you with what they think you want the answer to be. Oh, and when you walk in, you're going to be greeted with a big "Hi!". It's a friendly and fun bunch in there and I enjoy myself whenever I'm in there.
Raves is the BEST!!! – I was furious when I heard that Raves was getting a bad review or two.
Raven, that's the owners name (not old hag) is a very sweet woman. She has been in he business for over a decade. There is no better place to buy fet ish clothing in the state. I have shopped at at least 5 other stores, not to be named here, who claim to be gothic or fet ish (city search wont let me say that word so had to split it up) clothing, they cant even touch Raves oh my Goth. You may be used to boutiques where the employees bend over and kiss your butt to get a sale, well they don't need to do that in Raves, the quality of the merchandise speaks for itself.
Like others have said go back to shopping at the Gap, I mean Hot Topic..
You wouldn't know a quality corset or fet ish and goth wear if it bit you.
Raves Oh My Goth! – I recently became a Raves customer, and I'm so glad I did. The staff is so wonderful and friendly and very helpful. There is a large and very good selection, and the store is the perfect size. I would recommend Raves Oh My Goth to anyone looking for corsets, shoes, and other "goth" attire. In my opinion Raves is the best store of it's kind in Colorado!
Best Corsets – I love shopping at Rave's...not only are they wonderfully helpful when you're choosing a corset, but they are friendly and funny. I also love their selection of club clothing and accessories, and while they're extremely helpful and attentive, they're not pushy or prone to hovering. You can get as much or as little help as you like; get laced into one of their gorgeous corsets, design your own, or just wander around and browse. I love this place!
