DragonCon and kilts

Okay, Anime Expo is over, that means it's time to start thinking about DragonCon! :)

So, most trivial item first, should i get a Utilikilt for it? :)

Poll #1427856 Utilikilt Poll

Yes
11(64.7%)
No
2(11.8%)
I don't know
3(17.6%)
I don't care
1(5.9%)

Why or why not?

Yes - it's an awesome DragonCon tradition!
0(0.0%)
No - it's a stupid DragonCon "tradition"!
0(0.0%)
Yes - your 1/4th gaelic heritage totally entitles you to wear a kilt!
0(0.0%)
No - 1/4th? Just 1/4th?! Pshaw! That's nothing!
0(0.0%)
No - A Utilikilt isn't a real kilt! It's just a skirt with pockets!
0(0.0%)
Yes - It's an excuse to wear a skirt! (with pockets!)
3(17.6%)
No - The modern kilt is a silly and totally made up gaelic tradition that someone just invented in the 17th or 18th century!
0(0.0%)
Yes - It's a great gaelic tradition that's older than the USA!

No - Save the money for a new pair of Doc Martens since your old pair is so beat up.
0(0.0%)
Yes - Don't get a new pair of Doc Martens! A beat up old pair is a sign of prestige! (or something)
0(0.0%)
Yes - You can find much cheaper boots than Doc Martens that are just as good! (Where?)

0(0.0%)
Yes - But only if you're careful about how you flash people

I think i'm going to go wash my brain out now
0(0.0%)


(On a side note, i could have sworn i paid $60 or so for my pair of Doc Martens when i got them about... eight? years ago. They seem to be going for about $120 now. I'm not sure if that's just due to inflation, or if they've radically raised their prices.)

(Oh, and if i do get one i won't _just_ use it for DragonCon of course. I'd probably also use it for other cons, renn faires, maybe clubbing, etc.)
