Cosplay Contest Rules & Regulations:

  1. Each contestant may only enter one costume into any competition and may only enter into one category, Individual or Group. Due to the unpredictable size of groups, an individual prize will be awarded.

  2. No overt nudity. This is an all age event and there will potentially be children present. No nudity or profanity allowed. This includes images and messages on signs or clothes. Anyone who violates this may be disqualified from the competition.

  3. No political or religious statement during the catwalk. Anyone who violates this may be disqualified from the competition.

  4. No flash pots, explosive devices, or similar special effects are to be used. Anyone who violates this rule may be disqualified from the competition and may be asked to leave the convention area.

  5. All prop weapons must conform to the Cos-Losseum Weapons Policy, which is as follows: All weapons must be non-working and peace bonded. No functioning projectile weapons — including water pistols, silly-string guns, and ping-pong pistols. Bladed weapons must be cased or sheathed at all times. Any weapon used in an offensive manner will be confiscated and you may be asked to leave the convention, with forfeiture of your badge with no refund. Anyone who violates this rule may be disqualified from the competition and may be asked to leave the convention area. We expect you to use good judgment; with your help, we can keep allowing peace-bonded weapons. This is for your safety and the safety of others.
