Traveling to another country?

Next week, I'll be going to Peru for about two weeks and the weather there right now is very lolita-wearing friendly. ( A lot better than this heat wave in the northeast :l ) Since I never worn lolita anywhere besides here at home, I got pretty excited to finally wear my clothes else where. As I was thinking about which pieces out of my lolita wardrobe should I put in my luggage, I began to feel a bit concerned.
I know that here in America and Europe is very safe to wear lolita out and about but I wasn't too sure about South America though. I've been to Peru a couple of times so I'm aware of how things run. There's the central area where tourists run around and people shop in huge malls, but then there's the poor areas where it's not guaranteed for a pleasant time especially if you stick out. Now I'm not saying that being in a heavy populated area in the cities means there will be no trouble cause I've seen some shady people walking around even in the nicest and cleanest places.
So here's what I've been thinking about what I should do. I really love sweet lolita and OTT sweet but I believe I should let those items stay home and I should bring my classic items instead. Though I only have two brand jsks and I'm worried about my two babies will somehow get ruined.
Am I just being too paranoid? Cause I can get very paranoid sometimes...

How do some of you lolitas deal with going to exotic places and dressing in your outfits?
Do some of you tone it down or still go full blown out like you do at home?

Help is very much appreciated ♥
