Kokoro Con Cosplay & Weapon Guidelines

To ensure that all attending Kokoro Con leave with a wonderful experience, we would like to provide cosplayers with specific guidelines on cosplay and weapon regulations to keep everyone safe.



  • No costumes that are too revealing. An amount of coverage of your average swimwear is fine. If you are wearing a delicate costume, we advise you to take the necessary precautions to ensure you don’t expose yourself.

  • If you are wearing a large costume or one with poor visibility, you must ensure you have one handler with you at all times as a guide.

  • Large, bulky, or fur-lined suits must ensure they are properly ventilated. 

  • Make sure there are no sharp edges on your costume.

  • No offensive cosplays( if you feel your cosplay may be offensive then please message us beforehand and we will deem it acceptable or not)

  • Absolutely no blackfacing
