Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

The aim of this outfit is to reflect on someone with obsessive compulsive disorder. When he or she has obsessions (eg fear of contamination, fear of committing a sin) that seep into their mind, it becomes impossible to mitigate the anxiety from their compulsion when wearing this outfit. He or she is covered from head to toe, trying to repress the obsession, fully protected but also fully restricted. The anxiety builds up to an unbearable amount, with no escape from the repeated intrusive thoughts. Now imagine going through this, 20 times a day.
