Unhappy So, Halloween's coming up

Hello Airsoft Canada,

I'm thinking, Halloween's coming up and I don't have a costume, but my friends and I do have some tactical gear. I have seen half a dozen people at our school do "tactical" load outs last year, including some guy wearing a full gillie suit.

What do you think about wearing tactical gear to school (without any weapons)? It abides with our school dress code and there isn't any legal problems with it, as far as I know. The closest thing we may be infringing upon would be impersonating a police officer, but we don't wear any insignia or POLICE labels. (we could say we are impersonating a team from x movie or game)

Just to clarify: By tactical gear I mean:
-different BDU (not CADPAT) shirt and pants
-Regular Hiking shoes
-plate carrier (with chocolate bars in place of magazines)
-plain o'l mechanix gloves

We are not going to bring or wear any:
-mask
-goggles
-holster
-magazine
-military unit or insignia patches
-ranks
-airsoft guns (including clearsoft, cansoft or neon colored)
-anything that can be seen as a weapon, ie rubber knife, grenades.

I am also thinking about wearing a helmet or patrol cap, but I'm afraid it will draw too much negative attention.

What do you guys think? I think gear is just gear, wearing fabric isin't be illegal just because is 1000d cordura or printed with camo. Still, I'm gonna ask the Airsoft community here to be safe, given the current political situation I don't want to be the one that gets Airsoft banned (like Tim from Airsoft GI always says). So,do you think it should be fine for us?

When in doubt, don't do it. I'd say do it at someone's party, but not school.. definitely not school.

Personally I wouldn't. With schools and teachers these days it wouldn't be worth it. Party at a friends place however I see nothing wrong with that.

It's halloween, girls will be dressed like sluts and nothing will be said. Personally I'd go for it. No weapons, no problems.

Can't kids these days think of something original? Something that will get you laid other than "oh some kid who plays too much CoD".

I can think of so many other costumes than something tactical from "CoD" or whatever.

What about Ryu from Street Fighter? Batman? Ghostrider? Iron Man? Scarface? Robin Hood? Dracula? Optimus Prime? Bumble Bee?

For girls, just add the word sexy to any occupation or noun and it's all good; sexy firewoman, sexy police officer, sexy cat, sexy nurse, sexy nun, sexy detective, etc.

This year though, I'm going as a "sexy cowboy" (like Jeff Winger in Community).

tl;dr, If you want to get laid maybe think of something else that's unique and original. Girls will be all over you then.

I remember back in the day when I was in either grade 2 or 3, and it was cool to put a vest on with a sheriff's badge and wear a holster with a black and brown cap gun or squirt gun. then your best friend wore his mom's best combination of stuff to look like an Indian with a plastic axe or mini bow and arrow or all black with a mask and a full black sack...

It's not a costume if it's something you regularly do. This includes sports gear, airsoft, and especially work uniforms.

Really, has it come this far that kids are scared to dress up in an army costume for Halloween? If that's what you want to go as, then do it. As long as you're not bringing in a weapon with it I don't see the issue. My son has gone as an army guy 2x and now my daughter wants to be one this year. If either of them are/would ever sent home because of that I'd raise bloody hell with not only the principal, but also the superintendent.

I remember back in the days in high school at Halloween, I once dressed up in a Graffiti-like pattern; Paint overall, my painting mask, 3-4 Montana paint cans (still full haha), my personnal cap with my my tag name (Aper), big-ass chrome headphones and latex gloves.

I came across this police car when I was walking to my bus stop from school; checked my papers / ID card and carried on.

A friend of mine went as a ww2 german soldier (Down to the patches...) and was able to get away with it.
