DO you think it would be disrespectful to do a little bit more modernized version of a traditional dia de los muertos get up?

THe skull face, the flower crown, but a little more like... industrial/80s punk/gothish instead of the tradtional kerchief, skirt, blouse, etc?

I've *seen* more modern versions ... but they do more bizarre things... like change the actual behavior of the calaveros into somber entities or they do very stupid things like..putting flesh faces on them.
I've only seen ONE photo of someone doing the dia de los muertos dress thing and they did it completely traditional.
ANd where this is really set apart is the look of the skull face paint.

I dunno... whatcha think?
