Contest Rules

1. All contestants must have purchased a GA ticket to enter.

2. All costumes entered must be based on an anime, or anime character.
(I.E. No original characters, and no characters not featured in an anime. Ex: Woody from Toy Story wouldn't be acceptable as there is no Toy Story anime, but 2B for Nier Automata would be, because although is was a video game first, there is also an anime featuring the character).

3. Costume must be worn by applicant.

4. No group cosplay.
(If you and a friend(s) are doing a group cosplay, you are still welome to enter the contest, but you will be judged individually. If you would like to instead show off your work as a group, please come find us at our merch table the day of to sign up for our masquerade!)

5. No hate speech, racist, sexist, or prejudice cosplay of any kind.

6. No nudity or performance of sexual acts.

7. No weapons. Any weapon like props must be approved in advance.

8. No bullying of any kind to the other contestants, panelists, staff, or concert attendees.

9. No industry professionals.
(For real, if you're that good, you don't need to enter this contest. If you'd like to collaborate with us at an event, please just reach out! Let's allow this contest to be something accessible by cosplayers of all skill levels!)

10. Have fun.
