"Noobiest" cosmetics

What cosmetic items are most associated with newbies or bad players? (Not the same thing, of course.)

I know the Ghastly Gibus is often seen as such, as is the Mercenary Badge. Are there any others? Particularly accessories.

not true, some PoP players are actually good.
a PoP scout once owned a my team on pl_upward using the soda popper. 2 dominations, and 2nd spot on the mvp

and if someone has the halo, doenst it mean that they have been playing for a bit longer than the non-halos?

Gibusses, especially painted ones.
Halloween Masks from 2010.
Seal Masks especially.
Party Hat and Paper Hat wearers for the biggest part.
Snipers with Max Heads are the biggest egos ever with their farmed Hale's Own Sniper.
And Snipers with Angers fall in the streotype 'Hurr Durr, I the best' while they are not that good. The Panama and the Trophy Belt, those are hatts with class.

Do people with any real respect for the actual game care about the cosmetic on their heads? I got my rear end handed to me by a Gibus Pyro the other day. Flare Gun never misses, even for impossible shots. Just earned the Flamethrower achievement too. Was in impossible Spy-Checker too. Would just waltz around into my area every time and kill me in my place, even when I have the element of secrecy.

Bills and buds, why do people think this looks impressive? It's like a gibus wearer 500 hours later. Oh and the people who wear very unfortunate looking unusuals for the sake of having an unusual, they do make me chuckle.

To be honest, I don't recall last time I saw someone wearing halo.

Bills, buds, HOUWAR, max head.
It just means that people spent loads of money and time on getting random crap instead of just playing the game.

Baker Boy, Soldier's Stash, Brigade Helmet.
Someone played LONG ENOUGH to actually find this hat or he found it when it were the only hats in the drop system.
