OK I need some creative thinking on wardrobe.
This is my second year. Last year as a noob I took the advice read here, "wear what speaks to you", but get outside default. I am a construction/tool guy (run my own design/build shop, practical) I have an appreciation for steampunk but not really a costumer, so I grabbed a bunch of vintage style desert gear i.e. British campaign. Pith helmets, cargo pants, ammo belt for needed items, etc... basicly all in Khaki.
Dammmit everyone thought I was a ranger. I shit you not, I was approched several times to resolve problems. At opulent temple, two very attractive women engaged me in conversation (I was stoked) then started asking me leading questions about why I do this? hunh? what are the ways I deal with disruptive people? again... hunh? by the time I realized what was going on it had degenerated into a total dissconnect.
So I guess I am soliciting thoughts on practical desert wear that does not fit this image.
now I must say that pink fur is so far from my personality that I cringe at the thought. Not because it is bad, for some folk it is a perfect fit --- just not my bag.
I want to get outside my normal coveralls and jeans. I can see that interesting clothing sets up a mindset that makes this week something other than business as usual.
I just need some ideas or suggestions of something that expresses my personality, but has a festival/celebration feel.
anyway, this is silly question, I know.
but if inspiration strikes, feel free to jot down any thoughts
