5X The Style of Our Fabulous Ambassadors
Milkshake Festival is for all who love and for all to be who they want to be. We asked five of our lovely ambassadors about their style. If you’re in need for some inspiration to add to your own outfit or style at Milkshake, this will give you a nice start.
Rodney aka Storm Deluxe
“My style is crazy, sexy, cool and sprinkled with a little bit of ghettofab. I got this style when I watched runway shows. They gave me haute couture fierceness, thrift store realness and freebee galore. To me freedom means going out in drag and NOT to tuck… Now that’s freedom! I’m really looking forward to the festival and seeing all those fantastic Milkshake lovers who are enjoying life. What I’m going to wear? Waterproof make-up for the sweating. I am the baddest unicorn with the biggest horn!”
“I describe my style as feminine and cool. Because I combine my own thoughts with tips & tricks found on social media and my girlfriend my style comes alive. Freedom? The possibility to be yourself and not having to act like someone else. Milkshake is an amazing festival: the atmosphere is always nice and it’s finally a weekender. You see the people really enjoying themselves and they can be themselves. Milkshake is for all who love so there’s always something you find that you’ll love.”
“My style comes together because I love color, shapes and expression. I’m always looking for all that is colorful and happy, like a unicorn. Everything I can find in my surroundings, I apply to my style. Since I was little I’ve admired everything that had an outstanding appearance.
That nobody can stop you and you’re happy with who you are: this is freedom to me. Color, color, color, fashion, sexy, drag, make-up, glitter… ME! I’m looking forward to the weekender because I can go crazy and express myself the way I want to. I’ve found the love of my life, my sexy kitty, at Milkshake Festival. If you’re lucky you’ll too find it there. Milkshake is full of love.”
“You’re not really going to wear that, are you?” is often followed by “Ah what the heck, you can pull it off!” I describe my style as colorful with a hint of darkness. At Milkshake I’m definitely going to wear my rainbow tutu! An outfit should be comfortable and feminine at the same time, and it’s not complete without wearing nail polish. I keep experimenting with my style.
Freedom to me means living in a country where I feel safe. That you’re not judged on the color of your skin, but who you are. Freedom is also embracing the differences in our country and celebrating them.
Milkshake always is a lovely pleasure because I can party with the people I love. Every year it’s a mini reunion, I get to see the people again who I barely spend time with because of our hectic lives. And the rollerdisco!! Whenever I’m handing out flyers I say: “You have to come! There is a rollerdisco, a ferris wheel… Milkshake is a fair for grown-ups!”
“Because I was allowed to wear whatever I wanted when I was young, I learned to combine different colors and styles fast. Nowadays I get my inspiration from stores and most of all from what people are wearing on the streets. I’d call my style modish with my own twist to it. Daring to be yourself without other people correcting you: this is what freedom is to me. That’s why Milkshake is so nice; all those happy people who dare to be themselves and are celebrating a nice party. And yes: two days this year!! I hope everybody’s dressing colorful so we’ll shine even more together.”
