NO REAL weapons of any kind – No real swords or guns permitted. Guns must have 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 have been deemed safe by us in order to be allowed inside the convention. A prop is anything you are carrying to add effect to what you are wearing.
We are a family friendly show. Nude is not a costume. Skimpy/sexy/edgy is probably OK 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. No public exposure or flashing.
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, but shock costumes, or costumes which have the sole purpose of offending and disrespecting other individuals, cultures, or religions in any way, will not be 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. Riverside Comic Expo has the absolute right and sole discretion to determine whether a uniform costume is permitted or too close to a real-world uniform and to ask an attendee who is wearing a costume that is too close to a real world uniform 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.
Route 66 Con reserves the right to deem a costume as unacceptable and to request the wearer make modifications as necessary, change out of the costume entirely into more appropriate clothing, or require you to leave the convention.
Route 66 Con 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.
