III Points 2014 Fashion: Goth Kids Are the New Cool Kids

Fashion isn't an official thematic prong of the III Points music, art, and technology festival, but it is something to be taken seriously when on festival grounds.

Every hipster, scenester, freak, geek, and beauty queen is out to impress, or maybe just to get as weird as possible. We saw a lot of strange fashions at III Points, but we knew we'd see one fashionable staple above all else -- the color black.

This is our visual love letter to that most basic and not-basic of colors (or not-color).

Here's the thing. Anyone who stood inside III Points for five minutes left covered in a sticky layer of body fluids. It was a sauna in there. We can't imagine this fella was comfortable by any stretch of the imagination, but that's the kind of lengths you have to go if you want to be "I tried to look like I didn't try" chic.

If you're going to hang with your friend in all black, going sci-fi blinding white is an absolutely bossy move. Standing with your perfect opposite friend in front of a black and white art drop is a next-level bossy maneuver. We hope these two never moved from this spot.
