Cosplay Contest Rules and Information
Costume contest registration will begin at 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the contest registration table near the front entrance. Participants must check in and fill out an entry form at the table to receive a number. There are two categories: Children-17 and under and Adults-18 and over.
Cosplay line-up by number will begin at 2:45 p.m. near the auditorium door. Contest will begin promptly at 3:15 p.m. If you are not in line by 3 p.m. you will not be allowed to participate.
Costumes must be of original construction or show significant modification of pre-existing materials. No costumes are allowed that are purchased or otherwise obtained from a commercial source. This is a show of creativity and craftsmanship, not shopping ability. It is expected that some costumes may include as minor elements some purchased items. As a general rule, at least 75% of the costume must have been created, not purchased.
Contest participants will be allowed a maximum of 30 seconds on stage. Anyone lingering beyond that time will be disqualified.
