Wicked Chamber – A Hidden Gem of a Rave Store in Orange County
I have grown up in Orange County my whole life and from 2014 until April of 2018, I had the privilege of residing in Costa Mesa. During my residency in this fun city, I had driven past an intriguing store called “Wicked Chamber” on the way to the beach, but never had a chance to walk in and see what this mysterious store was all about. If you are ever in OC or headed toward that direction, I highly recommend checking out this hidden gem (you will see why)!
What is Wicked Chamber?
Wicked Chamber is a boutique lingerie/costume store owned and operated by a mother daughter duo. They have been in business for 21 years and have a variety of items from lingerie to a huge assortment of costumes, and the most amazing festival attire you have ever seen! The store spans over 7,000 square feet and has something unique for everyone. Owner (daughter of the family partnership) Bright, mentioned that she has memories of Insomniac founder, Pasquale Rotella, passing out flyers for local raves in his early days at the store!
Why Should you Visit?
What I love about Wicked Chamber is that it’s an actual rave storefront! It is near impossible to find festival clothes in person, and Wicked Chamber is so amazing because they carry similar brands to other rave eCommerce sites but offer the benefit of having a personal stylist to assist you as well as the ability to try things on in person! Walking into the store was such a feast for my eyes! All colors of the rainbow are present, a fabulous display of shoes are arranged in the center, and mannequins showcase the best of festival fashion.
I literally could rant and rave about the staff all day long. Everyone was so sweet and accommodating–there was even a sample outfit ready for me to try on (which I purchased)! All of the ladies offered amazing service and made sure I had plenty of options to choose from.
Wicked Chamber has a huge variety of options and it’s such an exciting experience to come in and get inspired! It made me so pumped for EDC and I left with the perfect ensemble tailored to my style needs! The price points are comparable to other eCommerce sites as they carry brands like J Valentine and Demonia, but also offer unique options from local vendors that you won’t be able to find anywhere else!
I am so happy I finally had a chance to stop in and this certainly won’t be my last! A huge thanks to the ladies at Wicked Chamber, I am so excited to show off my outfit at EDC and will post pictures of my look soon!
