Thats a good question Amanita
,its a toughie...no one really has a way of knowing without trying...its like we're all subjected to being constant experiments of society in a weird manner...some folks stick to what they want to do and others just stay away from it,its the perceived threats people are thinking of when all of this happens...it could apply to any cosplay...just wearing a wig alone with a wrong shade of color could probably offend someone,its the play of relativity really...and life...
The Hume's ever skew history's weave. With haste they move through too-short lives. Driven to err by base desires, towards waste and wasting on they run. Undying, we Occuria light the path for wayward sons of man. Oft did we pass judgment on them so that Ivalice might endure. Eternal, we are hist'ry's stewards, to set the course and keep it true. The chosen is our hand - our fist - to let live some and to crush the rest.
