I get no looks what so ever from people here in Taiwan; especially with my ragged 2nd hand looking gear and entanglement happy dive bag and large spear gun. Not to mention 3 knives strapped to various part of my body so I can appease the entanglement happy dive bag. I am one rugged looking indiviual amongst the happy tourist diving crowd.

Most people I encounter are solo divers in a way. They notice anything but their buddies.
