Military Dress Uniform Cosplay

I've got a couple of cons coming up soon and I'd prefer not to go in my civvies although at the same time I'm not really into (or very good at) making things, nor do I particularly want to buy anything new atm.

What I do have is some Cold War memorabilia as I went through a dieselpunk/atompunk stylistic phase a couple of years ago and I have a full East German Volkspolizei formal dress uniform. Now, I have seen some people dressed up in military stuff at conventions before but usually it's more gritty modern stuff like BDU's and helmets and what-not, so I was wondering whether or not it would be acceptable to wear an old Commie parade uniform to a cosplay/anime/game convention? Maybe some of you veterans can help me out with this.

P.S. There are pictures of the uniform on this thread: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=703743

I think it would be alright. You do see old uniforms worn on occasion to your run of the mill convention.

You can try army/navy type stores or online. I have made my Stargate costumes from those type of stores and ebay. And on ebay there are plenty of people selling Soviet badges, patches and uniforms.
