That great piece of life advice comes courtesy ofInsomniac Events Entertainment Director MsEasy. Talking with MsEasy is a lot like speaking to that wise aunt you always admired when you were younger. You know, the one who came to family parties rocking eclectic outfits and wild accessories while the rest of your relatives wore sweaters and jeans.
To the other adults, she was the black sheep of the family. But to you, she was the adventurous one, the relative with an exciting life that didn't exclusively revolve around PTA meetings and soccer practice. She was the person who first made you believe you could be anything — because anything was exactly what she was.
Originally from St. Louis, MsEasy began working for Insomniac Events in 2007. It's because of people like her that the production company, which produces some of the most immersive music festivals and events in the world, has become a household name to electronic music fans across the globe.
Beyond just the music, these events feature interactive performance artists adorned in outfits so captivating they'll make you feel like you've fallen down the rabbit hole. It's MsEasy who's responsible for these jaw-dropping creations.
Last Month, Elite Daily got the chance to sit down with MsEasy to find out how the highly-sought-after costume designer and performer is able to bring Wonderland to life time and time again.
