Cosplay Policy

  • Regardless of gender identification, we require all attendees, exhibitors, and guests to wear a minimum of sports bra-like coverage on top with leotard-type coverage on bottom (i.e. no bare chests or visible butt cheeks as with thongs or “plumber’s butt”). A costume must provide this level of coverage at all times, including standing, sitting, moving, or posing.

  • All prop weapons, whether projectile or blunt, must adhere to YukomiCon's Weapons Policy.

  • All military, law enforcement, and other emergency service costumes should be easily distinguishable from official uniforms.

  • Hate symbols, including historical hate symbols like swastikas, will not be tolerated at YukomiCon.

  • Please, no signs offering services or making requests to be hugged/touched etc. We want everyone to feel comfortable.

  • Please wear proper footwear. Bare or stocking feet are prohibited, as are rollerblades, roller skates, and wheelies.

  • Makeup must be properly sealed so that it does not rub off with casual contact or make a mess, such as glitter or fake blood.

  • Props, including prop weapons, that take up a significant amount of space (i.e. enough to obstruct hallways or walking areas) or that are so cumbersome as to impede the bearer’s movement should not be carried outside of the appropriate cosplay contest.

  • YukomiCon is a family-friendly event. Please use common sense to ensure that your costume is appropriate for all ages.

YukomiCon reserves the right to inspect all costumes and weapons on an individual basis to ensure that the event remains completely safe and family-friendly. Those who violate these rules assume all responsibility in the event of injury.
