CELEBRATE COSPLAY RULES

It is our goal with Celebrate Cosplay to both celebrate and encourage the art of cosplaying as well as promoting safe cosplay. We encourage those who want to come in cosplay to do so and to join our event and maybe even the Cosplay Catwalk. We also want those who are interested in seeing the cosplayers rather than dressing up to enjoy the event as well so here are a few guidelines to help make sure everybody has an awesome day.

1) DON'T BE WEIRD - If you like somebodies cosplay and want to take a picture, ask them. Please don't try and take sneaky snapshots. A posed photo is infinitely better than a fuzzy shot grabbed in a hurry.

2) COSPLAY ISN'T CONSENT - A persons costume isn't a greenlight to start touching them or making inappropriate comments under any circumstances.

3) LETHAL WEAPONS - A lot of cosplay costumes come with weapons and accessories and while we want your cosplays to be as accurate as you want them to be, any weapon that is deemed to be either too realistic or dangerous will be confiscated on the door and returned when you leave the event. If you are unsure about your accessory of choice, please email us in advance and we will offer guidance as best as we can.

4) HAVE FUN - True Believers Comic Festival and Celebrate Cosplay is all about the joy of loving comics and expressing that love, so have fun!

WEAPONS AND PROPS RULES

GUNS - Only toy guns with the orange caps (that came with the toy when purchased) will be allowed into the event. If the prop gun is one solid piece and the trigger does not move, an orange cap may not be required (depending on how realistic the gun looks).

BLADES - Prop blades will be allowed after they have been inspected to ensure they are not capable of breaking skin or causing harm.

BATS/HAMMERS - Only lightweight props (foam etc) will be allowed into the event.

We may ask to inspect any prop weapons when you arrive or during the event. Any weapons that do not meet these standards will be stored at reception until you leave the event.

If you have any questions about your cosplay weapons or props, please email us at oktruebelievers@gmail.com and we will get back to you ASAP.
