I know you guys seema lot more open, but after the relatively strict costume requirements at Ohayo-con, I wanna know about here. Other then plain out illegal crap, if there's any specail costume rules.

Lets see.. According to the website... No videogame cosplay, PG-13, don't make the costume too big to get on the stage..No projectiles, no fashion cosplays.. and, "Don't have anything exposed that you wouldn't want your mommy or daddy to see, unless you are into that, in which case you should be crushed under the weight of your sins and take immediate leave of the convention to repent before the Lord."

Those are for the cosplay on stage, I meant running around costumes.

Pretty much the same, if your costume is too big to get around the halls your screwed, there will be underage people here, so probably keeping it PG-13 still applies, projectiles are even more harmful in the hallways where it will take time to find the body, so I'm sure that still applies. You are allowed to cospay videogame characters in the hallways.. but it is frowned upon. As is fashion.

If you're not on staff don't answer, vincent.
but yeah, in this case he was pretty much right. No guns, no exposed genitalia, try and stick to anime if you'd be so kind.
Past that I don't really give a shit.

You could put me on staff. <3 Na. I don't like responsibility.
On a side note.. Haha. You said Genitalia.

Last year I was attacked by a bunch of gothic lolita chicks or as we call them normaly goth girls, they all kept yelling and screaming cause they liked my costume...is thare any way that this year COSPLAYERS can walk around with out getting mugged or kidnapped? I already have to deal with fan girls following my boyfriend and in that case I have my secreat weapon...my fist (don't worry I'll drag them out side first) hehe just kidding I'm harmless...sometimes.

Yeah.. fans can get kind of violent. Just remember people, ask before you glomp! Because that can damage props that took months of hardwork!(Not to mention the people wearing them!)

on sunday this one guy stuck his hat on my head and took a picture...i was too scared to run. I'm not new to cosplay just the whole FAN thing I've never met people that crazy, it's worst here than in japan.
