All I can say is Wow, Thanks Raves! My sister went into Raves looking for a dress and I went into another shop. I was in and out and in less than 5 minutes an employee of Raves called and had my car towed. My sister was in the store

I went in to look at corsets today and was lucky enough to hit it on their corset sale weekend. The guy who helped me knew a ton about their selection and ordering process, quickly pulled a couple to try on. They were beautiful!

Used to love this store -- in fact, have spent close to $800 there in the last 3 months.

Until today, when I asked to exchange a skirt for a smaller size. I bought the skirt less than 24 hours earlier and it still had the tags on it.

the store is very open and inviting considering the small collection, but only if you're there to give Raven money. I went in with a couple of friends who personally knew Raven, the store owner, and after we had browsed a while we went to

The staff was fantastically feisty and took care of my every need. I had just lost a bunch of weight and said as a reward I was getting a custom corset done, a friend and I went together and they were great and attentive.

*I previously posted this with Google Maps but feel the need to post it here as well.*

My personal experience with Raven (Rave) is irrelevant at this point. However, I can say after several failed attempts to shop here, I've not given this establishment one dime of my hard earned money.

That aside, why does Rave's Oh My Goth seem to have such high reviews? Let's take a look at the four pages of reviews listed with Google.

Working backwards, as this is how they are listed, I read each and every review (this woman pissed me off fierce) that is listed on Google. The review, Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 By SueZQ - May 31, 2009, is the first to catch my eye. This review seemed to be more of an advertisement than a review. Hmm! Could this have possibly been written by the owner herself in an attempt to raise the rating of her store? Further examination of reviews reveals the answer.

Between the dates of July 8th 2008 and July 16th 2008 there were a total of approximately 24 reviews written for Rave's Oh My Goth. Twenty-four reviews in EIGHT days?! That's insane. And damn impossible; Unless, of course, they're fake. Penned by none other than the idiotic shop owner herself.

On July 8th 2008, only three reviews were written. The writing style are all similar to the May 31st 2009 review by SueZQ and "written by" all similarly generic names: Meligoth, DancerHolly, voiceovgod.

The next day, Raven (Rave) went insane in an attempt to boost her ratings. July 9th 2008 yields the most reviews with a total of 18 submitted reviews with equally generic names such as kamasushi, AngelaKitten, and darkenedones. Again, all reviews for this date cast the same writing style, tone, and advertisement feel. Similarly they all refer to Rave's Oh My Goth as simply "Rave's," further reinforcing the suspicion that the reviews are, in fact, fake.

July 9th 2008 would have been a Wednesday, which is not much of a busy day for retail stores, or even restaurants. What are the chances that at LEAST eighteen people not only entered Rave's Oh My Goth, but also purchased something, then proceeded to go home and write an article about their "fabulous" experience? (Raven, I'm sure you're fuming with embarrassment at this point, but my question is simply rhetorical ... you naughty little scamstress, you!)

Moving on to point out later fake articles at this point is simply a matter of time wasted on this worthless shop.

Raven, you lack integrity and your parents must have left you one hell of a trust fund.

Out of the 39 current reviews listed with Google, only 12 appear to be valid. Your highest valid review being a mere three.

The rating for this store, sans your attempt to boost it, should read 1.41. Trust me, you should seek a new career path.

Pros: I'd love to give one, just one ... but I can't.

Cons: Rude Owner, Obnoxious Staff, High Prices, and ... LIES!

i dunno why this place gets so many bad reviews. yea it is a bit pricey but so is hottopic for crying out loud. i have always had a good experience here. yes raven can be intimating but thats just her. i have never had a problem with her. shes even personally taken me to the storage room and dug through boxes and boxes to find me the boots i wanted. other staff has even done this for my husband to show him things that hadnt been put out on the floor yet. its a great store. i love it.

I haven't been a client of this shop in many years. I went in recently with a friend who wanted to purchase a pair of boots. Rave's Oh My Goth does indeed carry a wide array of merchandise.
What most consumers that frequent this shop may be unaware of..
1. MANY of these items can be purchased online through other gothic or alternative lifestyle vendors online stores, Ebay, the manufacturer of the items you are interested in, or locally from Fashion Nation.
2. If you do your homework, you will realize that Raven's prices are not that competitive.
3. If you aren't that ambitious,(ie LAZY) you will pay the price that she asks. With that being said, you have no right to whine or complain if you feel you are paying too much. You do have other alternatives. Again, it's a matter of discernment and ambition.

As far as Customer Service goes, it's ridiculous what passes for it in this establishment. I work in the Service Industry myself. I don't believe that the customer is always right; quite the contrary. However, there is a definite nasty attitude that permeates this shop. It starts with the owner,Raven, and trickles down to her staff. It amazes me that she has managed to stay in business 10+ years. Apparently, her best clientele must truly enjoy paying higher prices and being treated like idiots.

I was in the store with a friend of mine a couple months back, browsing their stuff. First,. There is a sign in the front of the store that says hippies use side door. i assume that was the entrance. Instead i turned into gate to a brick wall.
"laugh" funny we enter tell our story to the clerks and its like a dead zone in their faces no emotion at all. Maybe it happens everyday. My friend had to strike up a conversation again and again about the store and area. Second visit i head back a couple months later because i saw a scarf i liked and just remembered it, and wanted it real bad. Reason because i had a similar scarf that i lost one drunken snowy night very sad. so i went over there. Really bent on buying touching and receiving wonderful scarf. Ok looking at spot........looking around store.........Where!! its not here no scarfs nothing they vanished. ok maybe there somewhere close......."Hello pardon me but i could not locate any scarfs"? " O...do u know where?" "do u know when they'll be out again?" "Ok.. so u put the winter stuff in the back during the summer.......r the scarfs in a box back there?"< NO there not even in here, in the store.> "Do u have a website..maybe there online"? " Ok i will just come in fall time thank you." . She had a real snotty tone in here voice in her last remark. Like i don't deserve to wear scarf when its 80 degrees out. We'll piggy went on to help someone else at the register and i was standing there scarf less....I call or refer to her as piggy when telling this story. i don't know her real name.
It's because she had pink highlights in her hair and wide around the wist area, and i could have sworn she oink a couple of times.(hhaha) no but seriously my problem was being scarf less. Just another oink in her day. kinda like their hippie sign out front. So i called my buddy Mop and told him if he's hungry he can go to Raves for some bacon. So 0-1 no scarf......thinking thinking........HEY HOT TOPIC!!!! so i skipped on down to HOT topic with my fingers crossed and.................................Press toe A WHOLE SECTION OF SCARFS........did i just get run over by a car and in hell now (j/k) but seriously, i couldn't believe the effort i tried earlier when hot topic has what i need a more. the service there is good. the girls there are out of my league but i had at least seven scarfs around my neck
GREAT SUCCESS 7-1 I WIN. Now Raves has lost a potentially great customer if only it was a great store.

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!

Pros: from goth, punk, drag queen to hippies & vintage

Cons: next door to Wendys...bring extra money for frosty

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 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!!!!!

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.

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!!!

Out of all the shops between Ft. Collins Colorado and South Denver, in a tottal of 65 Mile Distance. Rave's Oh My Goth! is the only store I trust. The Owner Cares About her people, unless you disprespect the rules, just like any other shop. The People who work for her are amazingly helpful in every question you have there. There Shop is Giant. Well Displade to get around simply with a Fairly Large selection of the merchendise. I highly Recommend this store to people who are looking for something a little bit on the wild side. This is the only place that I will go to, And I have been to others, that will do custome work for you and have it ready for you when they say they will. They always give you a call, they tell you to call them for any questions about them or an item that you have bought from them. This place is the only place I will shop for, for any of my needs in Corsets and Club clothing. I highly Recommend this place over all of the stores in Colorado, and All of Denver

Pros: Great Prices, Great People, Great Owner, & Fantastic Corsets.

Cons: A little bit hard to find if you do not know denver to well.

Rave's is the best place to find THE corset you are looking for. If she doesn't have it, then she can get it. I love shopping there and wish I could do so more often. Her corsets are made from the best materials and will last forever if taken care of properly. Rave herself taught me how to put the corset on, lace it and wear it. She is the best. If you are looking for great quality corsets, or even other rock-a-billy clothes or shoes, her shop is the place to go. I always have fun when I'm in there and will continue to support her store by sending anyone I know there. Simply said, Rave's is the best, and Rave is the person to go to!

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!

I don't know what the problem is with the four people who gave a 1 star rating, or even the kid who rated it 3 stars. I've been going to Raven's store since I moved out here 5 years ago, and everytime I'm there, everybody in the story is really nice. I've seen a number of instances where the customer has had a stick up their butt, and I can't blame any of them from responding in the manner they did. Let them whine and complain.

To the woman who claims she was "ripped off" by being soled the wrong corsets for years...that is your fault. I really hope I don't have deal with you in real life personally if you cannot take responsibility for your own actions. As for the other whiners...sure...got to Hot Topic...I am sure that is more to your liking anyways. Rave's isn't just about being goth, I've always seen it more as being able to express yourself.

By all means, go and experience the store for yourself. You will not be disappointed!

I've been to Rave's quite a few times and have always walked out with something I love and something worth my money with complete originality (I'm a different kind of person I guess, that doesn't fit in with the cheerleader airhead mold). I guess if I was, I wouldn't be interested in anything that you couldn't find at walmart. I love the quality the corsets are made with, and they are absolutely gorgeous! Far better quality then victoria secrets, and something beautiful and original you can cherish forever.(they're made to practicly last forever) There are enough sections of clothes to appeal to every personality I have. whether I feel a little dark and gothy, retro-y, totally exotic, totally vintage, or if I want to find a strange or unique gift for someone (I always like the gifts I get from there!)
I've met Rave a few times and she has been awesome! She reminds me of Elvira, who I love love love. She talked to me and my boyfriend for a while and showed us her parrot doing tricks. She is adorable! Always helpful and always notifies me if she gets something in that I'll really like. Her employees are always helpful too, and I'm a girl!! wow! I actually think they are less judgemental than other stores I've been in! Her merchandise is always different, since they change it all out frequently. I just wish I had more money, because I want too much stuff! Def a great place to shop whether your a tourist visiting through, or a local!

Pros: Love it all! Rave's a cool chick, stuff is cool, corsets are the best in town, big store! My favorite Devo shirt, cute parrot, all around fun experience!

Cons: I never have enough money cuz I want it all!!!

I like this store, caters to the "rockers and goths" of Denver. I play in a metal and and It's hard to find clothing & accesories around town that is my style. I haven't purchased much from the store, mainly small items & accesories as they don't carry my sizes in much of anything but corsets. I usually have to go to Torrid to find my sizes in regular clothing. The people there are nice and helpful, the store is big with lots of neat things to look at. Someday I'll get me one of their corsets, they have a huge selection!!

I've been shopping at Rave's for over 10 years and wouldn't consider shopping anywhere else for my corsets, unique clothing or accessories. The store is always clean and the staff (including Mistress Raven) is helpful and knowledgeable. I've gotten 3 custom made corsets from her and they've all been fitted exactly, Rave even gave me some tips on how to ensure they still fitted properly after I'd lost some weight. Sure, Rave can be a bit abrasive at times, brutally honest even, but I'd rather deal with that than with the obnoxious attitudes you find at other "alternative" clothing stores. At least you know where you stand with her and if she says something isn't you, better an honest opinion than buying something that you'll hate later. So if you need a unique accessory or outfit for that special occasion I'd make Raves Oh My Goth your first stop. Chances are you'll find exactly what you need and save yourself time and frustration by not running all over town looking at other stores.

The first time I went into Rave's I was a bit taken back, I'm not Gothic by any means. I was in to buy a corset. Raven was very helpful. She showed me exactly how to lace it up and where my lady friends need to be. I love her store. And now she is carrying the Betty Page line, which I absolutely love! Thank you Raven, keep rockin Denver!!!!!!

I really love Rave's I bought my VERY FIRST STEAL BONE CORSET from her and I love still today, it was a fair price for it. Most of the corsets can get expenisve but of course women knows wearing them a lot know they can get pricey! Raven is really nice lady and knowns her stuff when it comes to Corsets and her store. If her store is really busy with people, yeah it can be hard to find someone to help you, but the time I went in I and friend we were the only ones in so she helped me with everything and took the time to make sure I liked what I was going to buy, and made sure it fit good. I haven't been in to the store in a couple of years, but I will be in to check out her new store soon. I don't know what people are talking about who gave Rave's a bad review, there a bunch of lies and rude people!!

Pros: Wonderful selection of clothing, shoes and corsets

Cons: Some things are really expensive

.

I really liked going to Raves both me and my mom got great Service on both our corsets. They took the time to not only show us the different styles of corsets to see which would look best on us but they took the time to explain how to keep it looking great after every wear, and they showed us how to tighten the corset not just so when were by ourselves but if we need help the other can help us out. Although Rave has a strong personality its always been so fun to go in and chat with her, even if she thinks I never eat. I always find something great at her store. Her corsets are the best I've seen and the best in Denver I have yet to find another store anywhere close to Denver that has any corset selection like Raves. For those of you who think your so awesome to talk cr*p about Raves Oh My Goth! well your not. It's the most amazing store I've been to and I will never shop anywhere else especially sense once you get a custom corset done no one else can have that same custom corset. hooray for Raves Oh My Goth!

Pros: Friendly atmosphere,amazing service, great discounts for corset club memebers,great merchandise, to many to name.

Cons: Parking is a bit of a pain if you dont watch for the street sweeping signs

.

I have been a faithful customer of Rave's Oh My Goth for several years, since they were at the previous location on East Colfax. I have bought MANY MANY pairs of hot shoes (platforms, boots, "stripper heels" etc...) I will NOT shop for shoes, fishnets, "Goth stuff" ANYWHERE else!! (I will NEVER set foot in a hot topic!!)

I have also had the pleasure of being measured for & had a corset custom made JUST for me. All of Ravens Corsets are unique, individually made either "off-the-rack" or custom made, they are all special, and one of a kind!

It took me almost an hour JUST to chose the fabrics I wanted for my special piece of clothing. I ended up with a burgundy & black satin corset with an "hourglass" patch in front with black lace covering the burgundy satin. FABULOUS!

The quality of Raven's corsets are amazing! Steel boning, wonderful cinching capabilities (they REALLY cinch you in, give you that awesome figure REAL corsets were made specifically for!!), comfort, secure tying, you name it!

The store is in a perfect location for Denver Goths (or anyone who wants a unique & very enjoyable shopping experience) Right off Colfax & Emerson.

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.

I Love LOVE LOVE Raves! The store is beautiful, and has a wonderful selection, best I've seen. I bought an awesome corset, and it was a great price. It is so beautiful. I highly recomend Rave's to everyone! Also, the staff is very helpful and knowledgable.

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.

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.

I have had many pleasant experiences at Rave's. I have only met the owner about twice, but both times, she was friendly. She is not afraid to show her sense of humor and that may put some people off, but honestly if you act pleasant toward her and her employees and respect her rules within her store, she will respect you.
Though, I feel like I have to act on my best behavior to avoid pushing any buttons. I have a lot of respect for the store, and I know that a bad impression can turn Raven off.
But honestly, some people expect the employees of Rave's to wipe their butt like most large retail stores will, but it is Raven's store and she isn't paid to pick up after you, so putting things back where you found them and keeping things tidy is just general common courtesy. If you get upset if she or the employees get mad at you, think about it, you wouldn't appreciate it if someone did that to your workplace.
The clothing is somewhat pricey, compared to say, Target, but in all actuality it's very good for goth fashion. Especially if you are looking for a corset. The store is very large and there is a lot of variety to the merchandise. I just recommend being courteous and respectful when you plan on visiting the store, talk to the staff when they talk to you, don't be rude!

I've been shopping at Rave's for over 10 years now, and it is by FAR the best store I've ever been in. I've bought 4 corsets from her, and not only are they of superb quality, the best part is, no one else will EVER have MY corset! Who else does that? Honestly? That's pretty damn incredible. As for Raven herself, she is one of the most accommodating people I've ever met. She doesn't put up with unreasonable idiocy, that's true, but who should? She works damn hard to provide the most unique merchandise, especially for boring old Colorado (seriously, this is stuff you could usually only find in New York, Vegas, or California, how lucky are we to have her?) at the best prices around; no really, do some price and quality checking. I read that someone left her store to go to Fashion Nation because they were more Friendly???? Did they by chance smoke something before they went in? I've never had a warm welcome there in all the times that I've ATTEMPTED to shop there. They are so frigid, elitist, and "gother than thou", that I hate going there, even if their prices were remotely reasonable, which they most certainly are not. I wanna kick those other vapid antagonists! If Raven was irritable toward them, chances are they were doing something they shouldn't. If it were MY store, I wouldn't put up with excessive jackassery from people either. If you were dumb enough to buy the "wrong" corset size, after even trying it on, then maybe you should listen when she explains that they are fitted to work like REAL corsets, and maybe you should have been more clear that you were looking for a larger size than what you actually are for comfort purposes. That's bad communication on YOUR part, lady, not Raven's. None of us are psychic. Be reasonable...seriously. Raven has always been attentive, and helpful to me, and I've been able to special order many things through her. She is a blessing in this boring town, and one of the only things I'll miss when I move away.

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!

I love this place! It really has everything you could possibly need from t-shirts to fetishwear, awesome handbags, a huge selection of tights, thy-highs, socks, and other legware, lots of makeup, and of course, a large selection of corsets and bustiers. It's not ALL gothic style stuff though, there's glow sticks and stripper shoes, and a really cool Liberace bag I've been wanting for ages.

Contrary to some reviews on here, I've found the staff to generally be quite friendly and helpful. In addition to good service, there is occaisionally a pole dancing parrot named Max on the staff...no, I'm not joking, he's on youtube if you don't believe me.

Cons: It's just off Colfax in Cap Hill, a vaguely sketchy neighborhood.

This store is one of quality first and foremost and they treat it that way not just for their wares but for us the customers. And you can always ask the staff to try on their shoes cause they use shoe socks and get a shoe your size if you are really seriously interested in one of their shoes.

If you are that impatient go stick your nasty feet at a Payless shoe store in their shoes if thats your thing for all I care.

They have been in this business for years so at a first glance you may think they have a bad attitude the truth is it is nothing against you as a person they are not some coffeeshop drone with fake smiles. They know their regulars and know the shoplifters and flakes and for a high quality independent business they rather concentrate in providing their true customers with the best in goth fashion that tolerate the ungrateful with empty wallets and nothing but being full of it in a place like this.

They have my business since day one 8 years ago with their offerings from Shrine to Demonia shoes and beyond along with the high end Lip Service clothes outside of Melrose CA.

Prove me wrong I dare yas!

I've loved Raves since I found it.

The first time I set foot in there, I felt a little overwhelmed. There was so much stuff! I shyly poked around, afraid to look too close, or even touch the white shirt I was looking at. Then, all of a sudden, I hear "I want to see you in the black one!" I turned around, feeling a bit self conscious. There was Raven, she was smiling in a way that made you feel relaxed, like how a good friend smiles. After a few tries, we found a shirt that looked good on me, and it was actually less expensive than the one I was initially looking at.

I do remember one time getting a pair of Killcity pants there. I made the sarcastic comment of "Does this make my butt look big?" - My friend responded with "No, your butt makes your butt look big." It was at that instant that Raven piped in, and pointed out that I clearly lack a rear.

Overall, the service is astounding. The employees actually prefer to sell you something that you would look good in for less money, than something that costs more, and you would end up wearing only once. They are a place I suggest to everyone I know. Raven and Co. are hard-working, and awesome people.

I've loved Raves since I found it.

The first time I set foot in there, I felt a little overwhelmed. There was so much stuff! I shyly poked around, afraid to look too close, or even touch the white shirt I was looking at. Then, all of a sudden, I hear "I want to see you in the black one!" I turned around, feeling a bit self conscious. There was Raven, she was smiling in a way that made you feel relaxed, like how a good friend smiles. After a few tries, we found a shirt that looked good on me, and it was actually less expensive than the one I was initially looking at.

Pros: Ambience, Selection, Service

Cons: Should close at 11pm.

I actually had a good experience there. I'm not in the least bit goth, I was there with my brother (and mother). It was just a couple days after X-Mas and he was getting new boots. When we first got there there we looked at everything in a matter of minutes and waited for some customer assistance. We were told they just got a new shipment and to come back in an hour or so and they're be on the floor. It was a set back but we walked up the street for breakfast. When we got back the boxes were on the floor. So my brother helped them break the load and go through the shoes. The owner was really helpful but everyone eyed me and my mom like we were going to steal something. It's a small store so I guess I can understand. They let my brother pick something but they had to enter everything into their system so he could buy it. It was a slow process but very nice of them not to turn us away. The owner knew a ton about the things she sells and she told me and my my mom the history behind an image of a geisha flipping the bird. All in all. It's very pricey and limited in selection, but I'd go back their again.

I was really excited to go here with my little sister, who said it was amazing. We drove 2 hours down Colfax only to be greeted by the bitchy owner. My friend, sister, and I proceeded to browse what little selection they had in the gaping warehouse. I then tried on a nurse costume, only to be bitched at when my sister came over to the dressing room to help me zip it up. Then, the old hag tells me I can't afford it. I blew it off, but then, while browsing the shoes, I picked up a wedge shoe on display to feel how much cushion was in the sole. An employee quickly approached me and yelled at me for attempting to try the shoe on, just because I had it in my hand. The employee continued giving me dirty looks and rolling his eyes at me like a high school brat. Strangely enough, my male friend was treated with respect and had nothing but praise for the store. Maybe Raven is just threaten by other females or is just trying to get some by saving all of her lovely customer service for her male clientele. Either way, I would rather die than step foot in that awful store again.

Went there today, this place is over rated! I wish I couldn't even give this a place a star . Totally rude! They already make you feel like you should not even be in there. Not only that they do not let you as credit card at all if it is under $25. Then when you ask why because it " like cost $10 to swipe" which is not true , it is like .050 dude! and I would of paid that. So they would rather have no sell than one at ALL! Then they are way OVER PRICED ! I am all about buying local but this time I wished I went to Hot Topics. At least from teenager goth kids I expect attitude! Not grown adults but I guess the owner is awful too from other reviews shared here. So guessing customer service is not priority at this store.
So word of advice, treat people like how you would like to be treated.

If you want to be insulted, if you want to pay more than you should, if you want to get ripped off like I did, then by all means, shop at Raves Oh my goth. I would rather shop at Target than step foot in this store ever again. I had a valid issue with this woman, the owner, Raven, and she actually tried to claim that I was scamming HER! You see, when you purchase corsetry at her store, you cannot pull the corset down yourself. SHE alone takes the corset off the shelf. Nearly 5 years back SHE HERSELF measured me, and told me I was a size 26 corset. Every single time I went into her store thereafter I asked for size 26 corsets. For whatever reason, the last two times I went into her store, she handed me size 24 corsets. Since I ASKED for size 26, I did not stop and look at the tags. She ended up selling me THREE corsets at the wrong size. I can wear a size 26 today. Being a woman, and we women know that our bodies change monthly, there are times when sure, I can get into a 24, but there are times I cannot. I never have a problem getting inton a 26. I invested almost a thousand dollars in corsets of the wrong size because SHE made a mistake!! When I called to talk about it, she was nasty, and even had an employee hang up on me after telling me I was too fat for the corset. I am the same weight I was 5 years ago when I first walked into her store!! Had she sold me MY CORRECT SIZE I wouldn't be stuck with corsets I cannot wear. I wear corsets when I work. Standing in front of a mirror for 10 minutes is different than wearing a corset several hours at a time. She had her money. She didn't take the time and effort to put herself in my shoes or try to understand what error had occured. Had I taken the items off the shelf...I would be to blame. I trusted her to know what she was doing. She alone made the mistake, she wasn't a quality person to acknowledge and correct the mistake. In her mind, I am sure she thinks I owe HER an apology!! She owes me 3 Corsets!!

Merchandise and atmosphere is unique to anything I have ever seen. However, an encounter with the owner caused me to walk right out and go the competition, Fashion Nation. There, I experienced a great variety of merchandise AND good customer service. Not sure who "Rave" thinks her clientel should be but it is apparent she caters only to a certain type of customer. If you can avoid her, this place may have what you need.
