Rave Right, Stand Out and be Playful ;)

The Brain Candy is owned by Elizabeth Colette, an independent designer, former alt-model, wardrobe designer, and merchandiser, who founded the first mental health clothing line, Nervosa Clothing Co. She found success with Nervosa, slangin' tees in stores across Canada and in the US along with several publications in print, tv and online. Nervosa was about erasing mental health stigmas through loud or tongue-in-cheek graphic tops. The graphics were created out of the frustration of having a mental illness and experiencing the social stigmas first hand. After a change of heart and some soul-searching, Liz ditched selling the printed tops and tees and went back to her crafty, colourful ways. Combining the Nervosa "spirit" of mental wellness with off-the-wall yumminess, the Brain Candy Ravewear was born. The name speaks for itself: cute, quality eye-catching goodies designed to get that serotonin flowing and make you stand out at your whatever festival you’re attending. We hope to see you there!
Don’t forget about our large assortment of vintage toys, clothing and accessories!

Additional policies and FAQs
Some of our items are made from up-cycled materials, like the stuffed animal purses or hair bows. We scavenge thrift stores and flea markets to find the most interesting and unique things we can find to rework them into the most fun and unique pieces as possible! Every BC spirit hood ordered through our Etsy shop also comes with an authenticity tag which will note a little bit about it. Whether we add a hidden pocket to your spirit hood or an extra cute finding to your necklace, we strive to add that special somethin' somethin' to every order. Customers are our #1 Priority, and the reason we do what we do<3
