There was another con where I wore a dress uniform (the ONE time it fit me) with the pea cutter, and we went out to eat, and two older ladies looked like they were having flashbacks. Another time, I wore it to a memorial day celebration at a military cemetary where they do the timeline and actually had a WWII vet thank me for wearing it that day. I've had a lot of good reactions to it. But yeah...doing so in a uniform that ISN'T American (or one of our allies) would probably get some pretty negative responses.
No not really I do living history as a German from a couple of different units all Luft stuff and I have never had any issue's from vets. But I also would never wear a Dress Luft Uniform to any type of Cons
