Regulation with military costumes?

This has probably been answered but I couldn't find the topic.

I have been wanting to cosplay as Prussia and England. I am also going to add in Akira from the BL game, Togainu no Chi. I think I will get more results in the Hetalia thread because the uniform Akira wears is similar to what many of the characters in Hetalia wears.

Please excuse me if I say something wrong. It has been a while since I last took a history class. Prussia's uniform has the iron cross on the tie area. Someone I know who cosplayed as Prussia was asked to take it off because it was offensive. Akira's uniform resembles a nazi uniform, though thankfully it does not have any symbols. I did not know his uniform resembled a nazi uniform until someone told me. The last thing I want to do is offend anyone with what I am cosplaying.

Are their rules with military costumes? I will not be carrying a flag. I don't want to get in trouble and offend anyone for what I am wearing. Thank you.

Be careful. If you're going to wear anything, anything at all with Nazi connotations, I don't care if you're Prussia or a Hydra agent, you need a damn good reason for it. Shock value's not good enough. And you damn well better read up on the Nazis. Know your shit.

I talked with a couple of my friends who planned on the cosplays with me and we agreed we would talk to the convention staff about the costumes and we would change into a different version if they had issues with the uniforms. Thank you.

i want to go as poland, but beacuase of what's going on with isis and everything, there's a slight problem wearing military uniforms out in public...
it sucks, but you gotta save your butt out of some serious trouble.
again, the nazi-resembling uniform can be a offending to others.
