The Rules for adults… 

Come to the GCCC dressed as your favorite pop culture character or creation and register into the contest at the cosplay contest table (F9 on the map). It is FREE!  Registration begins at 10 am and continues until the parade starts.

At 3:00 be at the cosplay contest table to start the “Parade of Costumes”. The parade will wind its way around the floor of the show and find its way upstairs to Panel Room A,  for judging. 

Judges will narrow the field to the most interesting, creative and outrageous cosplayers. Each will be given a moment to talk about their costume, character, and pose for pictures. 

After that the judges will confer and award prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

Fine print…

  1. Judges choices and decisions are FINAL.
  2. No metal blades of any kind.
  3. No realistic guns (that means airsoft) Nerf is ok but…
  4. No projectiles of any kind. All magazines must be empty, barrels must be taped over.
  5. Bows and crossbows must be loose. 
  6. No rough play. Staff decide what is too rough.
  7. No menacing with costume weapons of any kind.
  8. COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT. Everyone one deserves to be safe from harassment at the GCCC. If you see something or if you are harassed, say something to a Staff member. We have your back!
  9. Have Fun!
