We the DCAC negleted to post the rules of the Cosplay Party as well as the Contest itself so here ya go.

1. This competition is open to all who have a costume that is related to characters from either anime, manga, or video games.

2. If the costume was made by you, you will have a better chance of winning than someone who bought their costume.

3. You must have a reference photo(s) for your costume if it is a not so popular series, character, game, Japanese Street Fashion, i.e. Gothic Lolita, or if it is a character of your own design, i.e. GaiaOnline Avatar.


Rules of the Cosplay Party itself:
I CANT CONTROL MYSELF leave all the back climbing , kicking, punching , biting and other cant control behavior at home be courteous to all in the store IF we have to REPEATEDLY respond to ANYONE that is INCAPABLE of controling themself YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE NO REFUND

IF ITS NOT YOURS DONT BOTHER IT ....this business has a variety of things for sale , on display etc .....be mineful of the owners property

YOU BREAK IT YOU BOUGHT IT NUFF SAID .... DC Anime CLub will NOT be held liable for your individual actions YOU MUST CONTROL YOURSELF

WERE'S THE BEEF ? everybody gets hungry ...due to store size and people expected DO NOT bring Mc Donalds or other FOODS into the store this creates TRASH and other PROBLEMS ...theres a food court and other places to eat outside the store

Pocky or small snacks are OK

DO NOT BRING PERSONAL GAMES OR DISK ..... It may be the latest and greatest but this can create confusion to owership of property and if the item gets damaged then YOU will be RESPONSIBLE

We want EVERYONE to have a great time at the cosplay party

A Schedule of events will be coming soon for the Cosplay Party will be coming soon.

Just a question...Are we allowed to have props like swords? Not real swords, those aren't even allowed at cons. But the costume I want to wear has a sword. It'll be made with wood, and hopefully have seath (if i can figure out how to make it) but since its a mall that has normal people in it doing normal things i was just curious.

If your prop is obviously fake I don't see why not.
Can't wait to see your costume.

we will have somewhere to change into our costume(s) or do we need to change somewhere else? Plan to do one costume while chilling and do a different one for the cosplay contest.

On Behalf of DCAC we like to thank all who attended the Cosplay Party and hope that you all had a good time.

We at DCAC strive to make our event fun for the anime community but we need your help.

I Wish there could be more place for video gaming, and also import games for PS2 Gamecube would be awesome...bigger area would be nice too.
such as Naruto 4 for gamecube and Naruto 3 for PS2, or Dirge of Cerbrus..etc

well, It was better than I expect so I think the party is fine.

I too would like to see pictures since I didn't take any of myself in costume. I will post the pictures I do have once I get them developed... unfortunately that generally takes me some 3 months.
