  • Costumes deemed lewd, obscene or offensive by Anime Fiesta or the McAllen Convention Center will not be permitted into the event.
  • Your costume must cover, at minimum, as much as a typical bathing suit. Breasts need to be majority covered and buttocks must be completely covered.

  • Attendees wearing tight-fitting costumes are required to wear appropriate undergarments (dance belts or similar).

  • Bare feet will not be permitted while on the convention floor for your safety.

  • Cosplay, costumes, and apparel with hate symbols, pornographic images or offensive language are not allowed.

  • Cosplay, costumes, and apparel intended to harass, provoke, or intimidate are not allowed.

  • Costumes must not obstruct or impede the flow of traffic or entryways.

  • Oversized costumes, costumes that obscure the vision of the wearer, or with large extensions (ex: wings), should have a designated “handler,” to assist the wearer through hallways, doorways and crowds.

  • Costumes should not closely resemble or imitate real life law enforcement, military personnel or healthcare uniforms.
