Cosplay


Cosplay Repair Station: Did a seam rip? Would duct tape save you if you only had some? Is your wig too heavy for the amount of bobby pins you brought? Did you get a papercut but you absolutely CANNOT get blood anywhere on your costume? There will be a booth set up where we will attempt to provide all the quick fixes so that way a cosplay malfunction doesn’t ruin your con experience!

Cosplay Runway: A fun, non-competitive showcase of any cosplayers at the convention that want to participate! There will be a sign-up sheet at the cosplay repair station where you can put your preferred name, character name, and anything else you would like to add. Then, at the allotted time, you’ll be lined up and allowed to strut your stuff down the carpet with everyone having a chance to take their best pictures!

Lightning Cosplay: Also known as “Iron Cosplay” this is a “no experience necessary”, team based competition! Each team will be given a box full of miscellaneous materials and then a different character prompt (ex. Fairy or pirate) and then a limited amount of time to turn one of your team members into that character! This fun, fast paced, insanity is great to sign up with friends or to meet totally new people who are nerdy and want to flex their creative muscles.

Weapons Disclaimer: While we understand that many characters carry weapons that are central to their costumes, this is still a college campus and so we beg you to follow our rules. We request that you only display your weapons in the spaces designated as part of ITHACON. No real weapons will be allowed in the convention whatsoever. That being said, fake guns will be allowed as long as they have a clear, orange tip to signify that they are not real. All weapons must be empty; please check to make sure chambers do not contain projectiles (beebees, pellets, etc.). Prop swords, scythes, clubs, etc. must be blunted with a kind of foam as to ensure that they cannot cause any harm. If you are asked by someone working at the convention or public safety to give up your weapon, you MUST COMPLY. Your weapon will be returned to you once you leave the convention.
