Last question - Costuming vs. Outfits

Ok, last question for the day...
I was wondering what your thoughts were on costuming vs outfits. Since costumes tend to be thought more of a mask, while outfits seem to me to be more of an extension of the person wearing it.

For a hypothetical example.. I like ninjas. If I dress up as a ninja it is a costume since I am not a ninja. However, if I was a ninja, and dressed up as a ninja (although really I mean more like.. a gardener or whatever, not the stereotypical black guy), then I am still a ninja.

On the playa, do more people wear costumes, or outfits? Do complete costumes have their place... Etc... Thoughts? Thanks!
