I'm in the stages of planning my Pyro cosplay and my parents and a person on the JAFAX forums pointed this out to me, but they said that the guy in the Colorado shooting recently was also wearing a gasmask so they said that wearing my gasmask might have a lot of negative connotations, especially if I am carrying a flamethrower like the Pyro does.

Then to make it even worse, the Meet the Pyro video implies that the Pyro is severely schizophrenic just like the guy so yeah, it's just icing on the cake.

What do you guys think? I want to wear it at conventions, do you think I will have problems now? Will the negative connotations come to pass? I need people's opinions.
