For the next three days, the sunny town of Anaheim, California will be overrun with over 300 star YouTubers and – in even larger quantities – their diehard fans. Why? VidCon, the largest gathering of online video stars in the history of gatherings of online video stars, has just kicked off – and everyone's dressing to the nines.

How do you dress for an event that's essentially the prom – nay, the Oscars – of YouTube?

Let's take a look at some of the key fashion dos, as modeled by some of VidCon's most devoted fans.

1. Pastel hair is a must.

Or, really, any hair that could be the color of a jelly bean.

It begins! @annaleebelle and I are at @VidCon in our first lecture of the day. Building an empire. #vidcon

2. The more of your face that's decorative, the better.

Yes, people count as accessories.

5. Wear something comfy, so you can indulge in the festivities with abandon.

We built an emoji ballpit. It's only downhill from here, career-wise. #vidcon

You don't wear a Balenciaga gown to jump into an emoji ball pit.

6. But, really, it's all about how you carry your self(ie).
