General Cosplay Rules

Last updated on Apr 03, 2024

All forms of cosplay are encouraged as Cosplay plays a huge role in Anime, Festival and Convention culture. We do not hinder creativity, but there are still strict rules that apply for cosplayers to follow before attending Anime Wonder.

  • All cosplay and costumes must be appropriate to wear in front of family, kids and friends. In other words, if it is not legal to wear openly in the public eye, it is not acceptable nor permitted in Anime Wonder.

  • Complete nudity or partial nudity as part of your cosplay or costume is not permitted. Our audience and fans consists of 17 and under. No exceptions.

  • Any cosplay portraying or implying hate speech against homophobia, religion, politics or racism, even its featured in any of your favorite animes/films/comics, is NOT permitted under any circumstances. For example; cosplaying Call Of Duty and or Halo is acceptable (with the exception that props are acceptable as per above) cosplaying a hate group such as a Nazi is not.

  • Anime Wonder is STRICT on harassment. Any kind of Harassment is NOT acceptable, nor is any cosplay that is intended to harass or provoke others in any form.

  • Hentai and/or Ahegao clothing (overly sexualized), cosplay, or references are strictly prohibited from Anime Wonder Festival. Our Festival platform serves youth 17yrs and under.
