    I've developed an obsession with bows and I bought so many! I want to wear them outside of practice but I don't know if that would be weird. I'm in my early 20s attending university in a country where cheer isn't a popular activity.

    Honestly I've gone out in bows before (im 23), pretty much always after a practice or competition (imagine the stares of me in full comp. makeup, uni and bow!) Lol but if your confident in it it won't really matter, you'll probably forget you even have it on! So show ur bow! You work hard in them nothin wrong with showing them off :)

    In Melbourne? Stick to a black bow and you should get away with it ;)

    You can make them subtile if your not that fully sure wearing them. Like just a straight ponytail with a bow or something.

    im 29 and still ordering bows all the time:)
    i put them on my handbag,not like on my gymbag a whole bunch together, but a single bow that fits with the purse. noncheer people even ask me where i get them because they think they are cute.

    i also had a bow made to fit with my work uniform, just a very small one, i only wore it twice though:))

    I agree with laughAlittle , bad choice if you're wearing normal clothes. Unless it's like a bow band.
    But if you're in cheer clothes, that's ok I guess
