There isn't a rule about crossplaying for comiket.
I've seen a lot of guys as maids or in sailor outfits there!
For anybody who's thinking of going, I think Comiket is a crowded but gaijin-friendly event compared to the other cosplay events.
You don't really have to be able to speak Japanese, but it's nice if you know basic stuff like how to ask for directions etc.
As for other cosplay events to go, there usually is an event going on
every sunday in Tokyo. Some are all-nighters where you dance the night away in your costume
