The importance of showing your skin is because in a full moon party there are many paint artists who will paint your body with whatever you want. The paint again comes in these bright florescent colors and you will see most girls cover their legs and body in this paint with some unusual design, this goes the same for the guys. This has become a trend over the years and it seems like the more paint you got on your body the cooler it is. The paint does stain your clothes, so this is a good reason to invest into some party clothes… A lot of people do get creative in what they wear because anything goes really. Some go well over the top and dress up in something silly, most girls will wear something to be as sexy as possible.
Its important to know that wearing good clothes to the Fullmoon party is not advised, it can be a disaster in one way, that is because of the coloured body paint that is used by all the vendors at the Fullmoon party, it ruins your clothes if you get it on them, this happens very easily when you are within the crowds of people or even dancing, with so many other people having their body’s painted, once you bump or brush past someone with body paint on them it gets onto you and if your wearing your favourite white T-shirt, it will be ruined. Its is extremely difficult to get off any kind of material, although it does come off your skin quite easily when fresh and a bit of scrubbing the next day.
Accommodation will charge you if you get body paint on the bedding or towels!

Shoes could be very important to you during the night. Thousands of people drinking on the beach and thousands of bottles and small plastic buckets are dropped on the beach. And then you get thousands of people with no shoes walking on the beach.
