Cute Fox Events Cosplay & Weapon Guidelines

To ensure that all attending Cute Fox Events leave with a wonderful experience, we would like to provide cosplayers with specific guidelines on cosplay and weapon regulations to keep everyone safe.
Costumes
  • No costumes that are too revealing. An amount of coverage of your average swimwear is fine. If you are wearing a delicate costume, we advise you to take the necessary precautions to ensure you don’t expose yourself.
  • If you are wearing a large costume or one with poor visibility, you must ensure you have one handler with you at all times as a guide.
  • Large, bulky, or fur-lined suits must ensure they are properly ventilated. 
  • Make sure there are no sharp edges on your costume.
  • No offensive cosplays (if you feel your cosplay may be offensive then please message us beforehand and we will deem it acceptable or not).
  • Absolutely no blackfacing.
Prop & Weapon Rules
NOT Permitted
  • Firearms or realistic replica firearms
  • Functional bows or crossbows
  • Darts
  • Slingshots
  • Pyrotechnics/explosives
  • Sharp arrows
  • Wooden/metal bats
  • Laser pointers
  • Props over 180cm (unless given prior approval)
Permitted
  • Non-realistic weapons
  • Replica firearms with an orange tip. The tip must be visible from a distance.
  • Plastic/wood/foam weapons
Cute Fox Events staff will be checking these items. If they believe it to be unsafe, they may be confiscated.
If you are found using your prop inappropriately or in an unsafe manner, it may be confiscated and you may be asked to leave.
When travelling to the venue, ensure your props are well wrapped and secure.
If in any doubt please contact us and we will advise you.
