COSPLAY. IS. NOT. CONSENT.

Say it with me, class.

COSPLAY.

CONSENT.

*To be Continued*


Whether someone is a Cosplayer or not, hands up.

NO ONE, has the right to touch anyone without permission.

Even with permission, avoid doing it.


RULE #2.1: INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING,

1) Glomping (Tackle hugging)

Real Life is NOT an anime,

DON’T DO THIS.

You could potentially,

  • Physically harm someone.
  • Damage people’s props.
  • Give wrong impressions about the ACG scene.

Glomping is only for 2 scenarios,

  • Online Chat Rooms.
  • Choreographed Glomps.

2) Physical Violence

If there is trouble, call in the following,

  • Event Staff.
  • Venue Security.
  • The Cops.
  • The FBI (If Malaysia had one!)

I know some of us want to deck scumbags in public, but let’s not turn guilty parties into the victim.


3) <Insert BS 4.0 here>

Basically, touching a person’s body because “Opportunity”.

And/or items that don’t belong to you.

You thirsty MF-Kers don’t CB.
