The Cosplay Chill-Out area gives you a chance to just sit down and watch the frenzy around you, while you recharge your energy. When you’re ready, you can jump right back into the action around you.

FAQ Cosplay

1Which cosplay should I choose?
Comic Con Germany welcomes all kinds of cosplay. Comics, Mangas, Animés, Movie or TV-Series, Videogames or an original designed character: The whole range of cosplay is what we’d love to see!

Important: When you choose your outfit, please be aware that Comic Con Germany is an event for the whole family. Will say: We expect to have also families with children as attendees.

That is why we ask you to have your private parts and backside covered with proper clothing. Bodypainting that cover your body in a proper way are ok, too (yes, we’re eying towards Mystique!)
2What measurements are ok for my cosplay?
Your outfits should not be bigger than 2m in diameter. Capes, tails and everything, that is hanging on your costume should not be more than 1 m - 1,5 m on the floor. Or Comic Con is taking place in a trade show location and we’re expecting a lot of visitor. If you bring a very big cosplay it might be in danger to be damaged due to lack of space or too many people. And we simply do not want to have any of your work be damaged.

This rule is also valid for cosplays with wings or feather capes. Those should also to be too wide. Please also check that those costume parts are not wider than 2 m-2,5 m.
3Dress up in cosplay on location?
We will have a special cosplay area at Comic Con Germany. There you’ll find a limited number of locker rooms, where you can change. Of course you also can dress up in your hotel room, car or at home if you’re local and come already wearing your cosplay to our Comic Con.

Important: Please be aware, that Comic Con Germany is taking place right next to Stuttgart airport. If you choose to wear military or police style cosplays, e.g. from Stargate, Battlestar Galactica or Video games with a military background you could cause confusion or severe worries amongst air travelers that are not attending Comic Con.

Our urgent request: If you want to wear a military or police style cosplay at all costs, please make use of our locker rooms inside the convention area and change there. This might save passerbys from being scared and the police from having unnecessary alarms.

It goes without saying that all military uniforms and cosplays have not added any forbidden signs and symbols. We have some special laws here in Germany when it comes to symbols from certain times. If you’re not sure do some research about this subject. It goes further without saying, that you respect the general German law for arms and ammunitions also when it comes to fake weapons. In Germany the term is “Anscheinswaffen”, so the law says how to handle fake weapons that have a very realistic look and could be mistaken for real ones.
4Cosplay with armour and helmets
If your cosplay is coming with armour parts made from metal, you have to take care that they are well attached to your costume. We do not allow costumes with sharp edges or rims. If you choose to wear an outfit with spiked wrist bands or collars/necklaces those spikes have to be blunt.

Please have a look that your cosplay (and also normal clothing) has no sharp edges generally. As mentioned above: We expect a lot of people and this would be flat out dangereous.
