costume policy

  • NO REAL weapons of any kind – No real swords or guns permitted. Guns must have an orange blaze at the tip of the barrel. Please refer to our Weapons Policy for more detailed information on this but if you are in doubt, leave it at home.
  • All props must be deemed safe by our prop inspection station (Level 3 between the Hyatt entrance and the escalator) to be allowed inside the convention. A prop is anything you are carrying to add effect to what you are wearing.
  • All costumes must be PG during the day and PG-13 at most in the evenings or at adult events. We are a family-friendly show. Nude is not a costume. Skimpy/sexy/edgy is probably okay, but you know when you have crossed the line. If you wouldn’t want your grandma to see you out wearing it, don’t wear it here. Public exposure or flashing results in removal from the event.
  • you MUST WEAR SHOES AT ALL TIMES! The escalators love to eat bare toes. 
  • Some costumes from anime, comic books, sci-fi, video games, and other sources may contain questionable material. We do not allow the use of hate symbols on costumes. You may wear a costume that is an accurate representation of an existing character in fandom; however, shock costumes, or costumes that have the sole purpose of offending and disrespecting other individuals, cultures, or religions in any way, are not tolerated. We ask that you be respectful of other attendees.
  • Costumes that may be confused with LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OR OTHER EMERGENCY RESPONSE PERSONNEL UNIFORMS are not permitted. Huntington Comic & Toy Convention has the absolute right and sole discretion to determine whether a uniform costume is permitted or too close to a real-world uniform. Convention staff reserves the right to ask an attendee wearing the said costume to adjust it or remove it.
  • If your costume hinders your vision or movement in any way, you should have a friend or “handler” with you at all times who can move and see freely.
  • Huntington Comic & Toy Convention reserves the right to deem a costume unacceptable or requests to make modifications as necessary, change the said costume entirely into more appropriate clothing, or require you to leave the convention.
  • The Huntington Center bans roller skates, bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, scooters, Segways (unless used as an approved ADA compliant mobility device), and wheeled shoes such as “Heelys” inside the convention. You may carry these items as a prop, but you may not ride them at any time in the convention center. Hoverboards are banned as well.
  • Huntington Comic & Toy Convention reserves the right to amend or change these rules at any time for any reason to provide for the safety, security, and general well-being of attendees and the general public.
