Entries with very large or unwieldy costumes, or other special circumstances will be allowed to bring one (1) handler with them, adult cosplay costumes but they must have it approved by the Cosplay Staff. The use of makeup/bodypaint/bodysocks to darken your skin to the appearance of another human race will not be permitted. In general, plan to arrive where the competition is being held at least one hour before our competition begins. This is grounds for immediate disqualification.
