* Ian Anderson of JethroTull took to wearing [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/U7dpasi_l9A/0.jpg outrageous clothing]], especially in TheSeventies (long coats, unkempt hair and beard, tights, long boots, oversized codpiece). made psychotic, bug-eyed faces, and performed with hammy, theatrical, flamboyant (and sometimes saucy) stage moves. He was well-known for tongue-in-cheek, sometimes playfully risqué, self-deprecating humor (or teasing humor towards his bandmates), especially in between songs. Often his fans misbelieved he took drugs, but in spite of having a free-thinking personality, did not like hippies, and was quite outspoken against audience misbehavior[[note]]He understandably has called out audience members over excessive marijuana smoke (as it interfered with his singing) or for throwing dangerous objects onstage (he once was hospitalized when a thorny rose thrown by a fan [[EyeScream caught him in the eye]])[[/note]]. He is very straight-edged, mild-mannered, and a family man, raises wildcats, promotes wildlife conservation, and, as can be noticed by the tone and lyrics of his music, is one of the most intelligent and eloquent rock stars in the world.

See also PerkyGoth, KillerRabbit, and ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic. Compare WasActuallyFriendly, EruditeStoner (who also have more insight than they let on) and AffablyEvil (characters who appear completely sensible and level-headed, but are actually quite twisted and disturbed). Contrast with ClothesMakeTheManiac.

How people dress says a lot about them, even when they don't dress to make a statement. So when Alice walks in wearing [[WomaninBlack all black]], chains, SpikesOfVillainy, and sundry other signs of violence and villainy, Bob can assume they mean meanness.

* An American PSA from the mid-2000s featured a teenager dressed in all black and full of piercings seemingly stealing a purse after a woman left it behind at a bus stop. The end of the ad revealed him to be a nice, ordinary kid who'd only taken the purse so he could return it.

[[DarkIsNotEvil Except]], once Bob actually sits down and talks to Alice, he realizes she is possibly the nicest person he could hope to meet, be she a calm, friendly [[AllBikersAreHellsAngels "Hells Angel"]], or an EvilOverlord offering cookies, not to mention the entire PerkyGoth trope. Alice may wear Freaky Fashion, but she has a Mild Mind.
