Hello! I plan on wearing my officer's uniform to Celebration this year, but when I don't want to look like a spacenazi, I'll be bringing along other clothing, most of which people would classify as "alternative". My significant other is concerned that I'm going to receive a lot of flack for it. For instance, one of my outfits is a beautiful, but bright and slightly garish, lolita-type outfit, and my partner is concerned that most people attending the convention will sneer. I'll also be wearing 40s-50s vintage (all the way down to seamed stockings and victory rolls). Now, please don't tell me the classic "You can wear whatever you want". I realize that. My question is - how often do you see alternative fashion at SW/Sci-fi conventions, and how are those people received? Do you scoff and give it your best Tarkin eye-roll, or enjoy it? I plan on wearing my outfits, but I'm curious as to other's perceptions and tastes on this issue.
