My friends and I (5 of us total) are going to a local radio stations Halloween party/concert at a nearby music venue. Its 13 and older but we are mainly guessing it will be college students and people in their 20's there. The only rules are no masks or inflatable/real weapons of any kind. My friend had the idea that she dresses up like Hitler and the 4 of us dress up like Concentration camp victims. We would scribble numbers on our arms and wear bald caps, cut out the nazi symbol from a piece of paper and tape it to our clothes. We were thinking striped pajamas. Then we would buy black grease paint and smear it everywhere to make ourselves look dirty. Spirit Halloween sells a Hitler costume. However, would this upset or offend a lot of people? Were trying to stand out in the crowd but not offend people. This was NOT my idea, again it was my friends idea, I suggested we dress up like possessed people and she said that would be too much work. My other friend suggested Ghostbusters but the reviews online said the outfits rip and are cheaply made and they were 2 out of 5 stars.
You're on VERY thin ice with the concentration camp victim idea. Keep in mind costumes are thought to ridicule people, and while I, and probably most other people, think it's perfectly fine to make fun of and ridicule hitler, doing that to the millions of people who were hunted, killed, etc seems pretty tasteless to me. If you wanna do a NS based theme, just all go as hitler and if someone asks say you're his immortal clones from a secret Nazi experiment.
I can appreciate the creativeness but people will look at you wrong, some may find it cool but people will look... just don't do it LOL. I am pretty open person and I would still be like what the fuck and maybe laugh awkwardly.
To be on the Safe Side here, dear, I... Wouldn't do it. You never Know what Tom, Dick or Joe might just Gun you down Before you even get to The Party. You either have to be Politically Correct Today or Be Someone that Tries to be Neutral, or Die Trying. Sad, but it Is the World in Which We Live. Look at my own profile Pix, which is like a "Halloween" Getup. I put it Here to Show I am "Master of My Domain," no One has Shunned my Good Name. Good luck, you Still have Time to Change Costumes. xx
Your friend sounds like a fucking idiot first of all. Second if you guys think the mass murder of thousands of people was funny you have shit hella fucked up. Pick something else that won't get you guys beat up because dressing like that will at the very least get you spit on.
That's not funny. Tell your friend she should be ashamed of herself, thats ignorant. You guys wouldn't be allowed in if you did that and I'm sure you would make news headlines. Thats horrible that spirit even sells a Hitler costume to begin with!
