Rules of the Cosplay Contest

We want you to have fun at our events. So score a great cosplay outfit and show yourself on Dutch Comic Con. We have a few rules so that we can create a safe environment for everyone. (Should a problem occur during Dutch Comic Con, please report it to one of our security guards or volunteers.)

Common rules

  • Costumes should not be obscene or offensive, inciting hatred or provocative.
  • Nudity is not allowed. All costumes must cover enough to be worn in public (remember that there are families with children attending).
  • Do not bother anyone! We maintain a zero tolerance policy. 
  • Have respect for each other and above all have fun! 

Contest Rules

  • All contestants have to preform an act. 1:30 minutes for a Solo act, 2 minutes for a Duo act, at max.
  • We accept only existing characters (no personal designs)
  • The act will be judged by a jury: 60% act - 40% costume. 
  • Costumes have to be custom made. Customized parts are allowed. The costume isn't allowed if it is bought entirely. Participants will have to show which parts are completely custom made. 
  • There will be a host on the stage, who could ask you some questions. No worries, he won't bite.
  • You can win in several categories.

If your costume doesn't meet the requirements of the Contest rules, check out Casual Cosplay. 

Weapons and props

What should you bring and should you leave at home? Remember that all the props you bring should be safe in a busy environment. Don't endanger anybody and do not hurt anyone with your prop. If you have brought a prohibited weapon, it will be confiscated and the police will be informed. Besides that, you may not enter Dutch Comic Con.

Everyone must abide by the rules of the Dutch Arms Act. Some examples on the list of prohibited weapons under the Dutch Arms Act: firearm, object which can give an electrical pulse, fake weapon or toy weapon that is indistinguishable from a real firearm, crossbow, sword, stiletto, butterfly, switchblade, knuckle-duster, arrows and arrowheads, knife with several cutting edges, air gun (no airsoft weaponry allowed) and self defense weapons such as pepper spray or tear gas.

Procedure

Those who have signed up will receive an e-mail to confirm their application. After the application period ends, we will contact each entry and ask them to send further information regarding their cosplay for the pre-selection. Make sure you look your best during the pre-selection!

For each contest, there can only be 15 participants. Once the contestants have been selected, Team Chaos Cosplay will provide them with further information for the next steps and where the participants should gather for the prejudging.

Prejudging

The prejudging will take place on site before the Cosplay Contest starts. All the participants have to be present beforehand in order for the jury to check and judge their cosplay costumes. 

Sign up!

The application period is now closed.
