Brace yourself, the Cosplay Contest is Coming!


  • Prefabricated, store-bought costumes cannot compete. Costumes must have been made by the contestant. Though a portion of the costume may be from purchased goods or commissioned work, more than 75% should be constructed by the wearer, their friends, or their family.

  • If you have mobility concerns or if your costume is elaborate in some way that makes a handler necessary during the onstage parade and contest, please include a request for assistance in your entry form. Friends, family, etc. are not allowed backstage with adult contestants without advance permission.

  • Costumes must conform with the Con of Thrones Code of Conduct and the rules of The Music City Center.

  • Visible Con of Thrones badges will not be required on stage, but should otherwise be worn at all times.

  • If your costume requires power, it must be part of your costume design. No electrical outlets will be available.

  • We have no limit on the size of costumes or props, but Con of Thrones reserves the right to deny contestants with costumes that pose a risk to convention attendees, personnel, or property.
