- All costumes are welcome to enter, but to be eligible for prizes, at least some portion of your costume must have been made by you or with help from family and friends. Consider being reference pictures to show the judges so we can be as fair as possible!

- Entrants 13 and under must have their parents' permission to enroll, and must be accompanied by a legal guardian or relative of age during the contest.

- Elaborate costumes must be handled by the contestant and/or assistants the contestant brings to help. In addition, all entries must be able to get on and off the stage safely.
- Sorry, no skits. The contest will be a walk on presentation. This means you will get called on stage to walk around, pose, and present yourself a bit in-character.
- To enter the cosplay contest, attendees must have a PRGE admission badge (this includes vendor, volunteer and press badges). Members of PRGE staff are ineligible to compete in the cosplay contest.
