"Best $2k I Ever Spent!" Where Were All The Ravers At HARD Haunted Mansion?

This was the most raver thing that happened all night...

There's a reason they call the bi-coastal electro music fest visits L.A. and NYC every few months "HARD". But shockingly, night one of this year's annual HARD Haunted Mansion Halloween rave was anything but. Tame, mellow, and downright civilized are some adjectives that more accurately describe the 8-hour event compared to previous HARD fests. Even the typical raver ensemble staples like arms stacked with kandi, face paint, spandex, tutus, heavy splashes of neon, and near nakedness were noticeably understated, and on a Holiday that's all about costumes and dressing like a slut! Plus everyone looked stone-cold sober. We're not sure what happened and where all the crazy raver folk were this year, but this was the anti-HARD, weak, and we have the pictures to prove it...

These guys aren't even in costumes except for that measly black KISS band star!

Apparently the Halloween rave was also romantic date night since the place was filled with smiley, snuggling couples...

This is a pose for the camera and definitely not a genuine display of passion.

The last time I saw PDA like this was at my 7th grade dance...

Groups that look like they're about to hit the pavement for some trick-or-treating.

Same with these guys, except some people in their crew wouldn't get any candy since they didn't even dress up...
