I can understanding dressing up like this for conventions and whatnot, but I do not understand wearing costumes everyday, like out in public. I
suppose that I could not fault a person if they just really liked the stuff, and were ONLY wearing it for that reason, but I have a feeling that some
of these people just want to draw attention to themselves and have people looking at them. I think when it is done for reasons of that nature then it
is vanity. But of course most people are vain in some manner, and perhaps I shouldn't criticize this alone, but it just seems like they are making it
obvious, and in a way that is not socially acceptable. Most people accept vanity in the form of makeup, fashion, etc., but I just don't know where
the line should be drawn. As a society we have a lot of culturally acceptable practices that could be considered faults if viewed from a moral or
ethical point of view.
And to a certain extent many people wear "costumes" on regular, non-halloween, days. But again, it is culturally acceptable. So there are many
things to be considered. But I agree with you that if you want to laugh, then laugh. People who dress outrageously should be prepared for as much, and
should be emotionally secure enough to not be bothered by it. If they are not, then they should not "put themselves out there" like that, which is
essentially what they are doing. This is what anyone is doing when they go against the social grain. But I also think that there is a difference in
unique clothing and what that guy is wearing in the picture. Most clothing is stylized, yet functional. Having metal and all that junk on your clothes
is in now way functional, unless one is hoping to protect themselves against being attacked by wolves or something like that. Seeing as how he has
what appears to be a weapon, this must be the explanation.
