Guidelines

for Costuming

& Props

Costumes

  1. Costumes should provide enough body coverage to be worn in public and should be in good taste and appropriate for a family friendly convention (Please note: those wearing inappropriate attire will be asked to leave the event, tickets are not refundable)​
  2. The maximum height, width or depth of a costume is two metres. This excludes any parts (e.g. wings) that can collapse to a smaller size and is kept collapsed when traversing through the convention floor. If attending the convention in an excessively bulky costume we advise that you have at least one fellow attendee to assist you with traversing the con floor and warning others of your presence.
  3. If the costume is made of hard materials please ensure that edges are rounded off and padded. The costume should not have any parts that could cause an injury to any other attendees of the convention (e.g. nails, spikes or blades). Please note, this includes metal (stainless steel) wolverine claws.

If you wish to use the secure changing facilities at the venue please ensure you contact Planet Folkestone prior to the event.
