Cosplay is an important part of our event. We look forward to seeing all the costumes and getting the largest turn out possible for the Costume Contest.

Rules: No costumes with excessive appendages that are unmanageable by the wearer without an assistant to guide the appendages and keep everyone safe.

No costumes that are less material than a bathing suit you’d wear to a family reunion. Your full butt must be covered, and you can have cleavage, or under boob, but not both. No pink parts, and pasties are not appropriate for this family event. Sorry for the vulgarity, but the specifics have to be lined out so we don’t have to ruin someones experience by asking someone to cover up.

Not consent: Cosplayers are dressed as their favorite fictional character, they aren’t in fact those characters so it is important to remember that when engaging with the cosplayer. Do not touch unless they approve, and please respect the requests of each cosplayer. If you have been found to disobey this request you will be removed and banned from all of our events for life. Not a fun crowd to be in. If you have been the victim of unwanted advances or intentional unwanted physical contact alert con staff immediately. Take a picture of the goon if you can.

We are trying to find room for a cosplay recovery room, but the space is limited so please be aware this may not be a service at this years Duke City Comic Con.
