The 2015 Super Toy Con is proud to bring back the Cosplay Contest! The Cosplay Contest is a craftsmanship award show, with a pre-judging session and a catwalk display. Join us for pre-judging in the Grand Ball Room of the Circus Circus Hotel on Saturday at 2pm if you wish to compete for fantastic prizes! Don’t want to compete but still want to show off your great contest? Come by pre-judging and let us know to have a walk-on only.
*If you would like to participate in the Cosplay Contest, please come to pre-judging at 2PM on Feb. 28 in the Grand Ball Room at the Circus Circus. ( First-come, first-served, limited participants.)
Super Toy Con Cosplay Contest Rules & Guidelines
No skits during judging or catwalk.
No nudity. No costume is no costume.
No profanity allowed on stage. That includes messages on signs or clothes. Anyone who violates this may be disqualified from the competition.
No political or religious statement during the catwalk. Anyone who violates this may be disqualified from the competition.
Do not use any sort of projectile at all! Nothing must leave your person while you are on the catwalk. Anyone who violates this rule may be disqualified from the competition and may be asked to leave the convention area.
No flashpots, explosive devices, or similar special effects are to be used. Anyone who violates this rule may be disqualified from the competition and may be asked to leave the convention area.
Please keep your costume tasteful. — This sounds a bit nebulous, but what we’re asking is that cosplayers please remember that this is a family show. We’re not saying that your zombie costume can’t be scary looking, we’re asking that your zombie wears pants.
No real weapons. — This seems pretty obvious, but it’s better to say something now than look silly later. So, no real guns, knives, swords, shiruken, flame throwers, napalm, hydrochloric acid, etc., etc.
Costuming is a big part of most comics conventions, and Appleseed welcomes cosplayers. We recognize that cosplayers add a lot of value to the convention experience for the convention goer, and costumers put a lot of time and hardwork into perfecting their costumes. Please be respectful of each other and their time spent on their own costumes.
