So according to the new rules, Modern Military and Modern Paramilitary costumes are forbidden. I asked around during my time at Fanime 2011, and I discovered that this was because there were some people dressed as military personnel, and acting as if they had authority. I was just wondering whether ghillie suits that are obviously not military grade fit into this category. I had worn my ghillie suit for the duration of my stay, and have not encountered a single problem with the Rovers. I had even asked the Rovers myself about this rule, and they told me that ghillie suits were discouraged, but not banned. This concerns me very much due to the fact that my friends and I were planning to wear ghillie suits to Fanime 2012.
In my personal opinion, modern military personnel would not be seen in public wearing a ghillie suit, so there really would be no confusion between a civilian and military personnel. Can anyone help me?
