Costume Policy

FAN EXPO HQ in an inclusive environment and welcomes cosplayers of all backgrounds and body types. For the avoidance of doubt, the following guidelines must be adhered to when wearing a costume to a FAN EXPO HQ event.

The absence of clothing or a costume is not itself a costume. Nudity is not allowed at any FAN EXPO HQ events. All costumed attendees are required to have opaque fabric of some type providing complete coverage of breasts, genitals and buttocks. Opaque bodysuits that simulate nudity are not allowed. Anyone wearing a costume that is too revealing in the sole judgment of FAN EXPO HQ will be asked to leave the Event.

Costumes must not contain words or images that are racist, obscene or derogatory. This includes Ahegao , Swastikas or other Nazi imagery, KKK hoods or other paraphernalia etc.

Costumes that are in and of themselves deemed to be racist, obscene, or derogatory by the organizers will not be permitted.

Costumes or props that incorporate chemical special effects are prohibited. This includes helium balloons, any type of smoke or other pyrotechnics, or costumes that expel liquids, gasses or other matter.

FAN EXPO HQ reserves the right to reject any costume at any time and for any reason.
