Cosplay Rules

HorrorConUK is a family friendly event and attendees must ensure that their costumes are appropriate in this respect. Nudity is strictly prohibited; costumes must cover your private parts!  Any costume that could be deemed as offensive such as displaying of hate symbols (e.g. swastikas), or those that are culturally insensitive, or show disrespect to a specific group or person are also prohibited.   Military, law enforcement, medical personnel, government agent, or similarly themed costumes must also be easily identifiable from current, official uniforms. We also discourage oversized costumes and props too.  If in doubt, give us a shout!
