1. Dress Code: All cosplayers must wear the following articles at all times while inside the convention center:

    Clothing: This is a family friendly event. No costume is considered No Costume. Absolutely no nudity. Please ensure that all costumes are properly secured at all times and are not prone to "indecent accidents".

    Footwear: To ensure your safety, we ask that you wear footwear at all times. You should consider wearing a minimum of sandals (ie, flip flops) at all times even if your character is barefoot. Skates and rollerblades are prohibited in the hallways. Sneaker-skates my only be worn as a sneaker at all times inside the convention area. AoiUmaCon will not be held accountable for any damages or injury that occurs due to inadequate or improper footwear.

  2. Weapons Policy: Please refer to our weapons policy located here: Aoi Uma Con's Weapons Policy.
  3. Mock or Play-fighting is not allowed in the hallways and convention area. Wielding or handling weapons or props in a way that could potentially cause harm to others is prohibited, whether there was an intent to harm others or not. Mock-fighting is allowed on stage during cosplay but must be carefully rehearsed, reviewed and approved by cosplay staff.
  4. Large Costumes: Please be sure to keep all large costumes contained as much as possible. (We recommend no more than 2 feet in all directions unless it can be folded up or contained) We recommend the use of handlers to help manage your costume if it is larger than this. Large costumes or large parts of costumes are not allowed inside the dealer's room due to blocking the flow of traffic and other hazards.
  5. Picture taking: Do not stop for pictures in smaller, crowded hallways. Please go outside, to a less crowded area, or to the designated picture taking areas. Do not block doors, ramps, exits, corridors, and aisles while taking pictures.
  6. We reserve the right to remove you from the convention and/or cosplay events at any time. If for any reason we feel that your actions pose a threat or hazard to others while at AoiUmaCon, we will ask you to stop or you will be removed from the cosplay events. We simply ask you to be courteous towards others at all times
