Welcome to the information page for Tallahassee Comic Con’s Costume Contests. Time to rev up those sewing machines and make something incredible!
The three contests:
The following rules and restrictions apply to ALL Contests and Contest Participants. Anyone violating any rules or policies of the Contests may be disqualified.
A NOTE TO GROUPS: A group is 2-8 people entering together. Due to space constraints, the maximum number allowed in a group is 8. Entering as a group disqualifies you for any individual awards. A group is counted as one entry, and any prize won will have to be split amongst yourselves.
Concealed or open-carry firearms are NOT permitted in the convention area.
Weapon Check tags may be be removed by Convention Staff only and at the discretion of Convention Staff. We do not guarantee that we will allow your weapon to be untagged for contest entry. Firearms will NOT be untagged, no exceptions. All weapons must be re-tagged after the contest/contest photo session is complete.
If you are thinking of bringing a prop or accessory that you are unsure of, please contact us via Tally Comic Con Info.
All prop or replica weapons must be incapable of firing or allowing to be fired any type of projectile. Any type of ammunition is not allowed into the convention.
Water guns, Nerf guns, paintball guns and air-soft guns are permitted with the following restrictions:
Guns must be rendered completely inoperable beforehand; that is there shall not be batteries installed or gas/propellant allowing the weapon to be fired.
Water guns are not to be filled with any liquid in the convention areas.
ITEMS THAT ARE FORBIDDEN:
Knives, swords, and daggers are allowed, but will be tied by Security in such a way that they cannot be drawn or unsheathed.
Bows are allowed, as long as they cannot shoot projectiles of any kind.
Staffs (staves) will be allowed but may not have any sharpened edges.
Items such as bullwhips, ropes, and lassos are allowed, but must remain rolled and secured at all times.
Transportation of weapons to and from the Contest must follow the convention's weapon policy.
