The HALL COSPLAY CONTEST is based solely on photos taken at the cosplay registration booth located in the Artist and Vendor area during Tokyo in Tulsa. If you enter this contest, you will be judged on how you and your costume photographs. This is a contest in which you will need to strike a pose and show off your stuff in the form of a still picture. Store-bought costumes, as well as hand-made costumes, can be entered in this contest. The Hall Cosplay Contest will be judged by the Tokyo in Tulsa Cosplay staff.
Anyone may enter the HALL COSPLAY event, excluding Tokyo, OK staff. Entrants under the age of thirteen (13) must have a parent sign their entry form as proof of permission to enter the contest.
No costume is NO COSTUME. If the outfit can be mistaken for every day wear (L from Death Note or Brock from Pokemon, for example), it cannot be entered into the contest on its own. However, it can be entered with a group.
Costumes must cover at least as much area as a bikini—NO EXCEPTIONS. This is a family friendly event.
Store-bought costumes may be entered in the HALL COSPLAY contest.

Reference material is encouraged for fair judgment. We are not always able to look up reference images, so it is best to show up prepared for the contest. Reference material ensures that we can see a side-by-side comparison of your outfit and the character’s design.
Each entrant in the HALL COSPLAY contest will be required to provide their signature on their entry form to verify that they have read the rules and will adhere to them on pain of expulsion from the contest.
Multiple photos will be taken of the outfit(s) being entered into the HALL COSPLAY contest. These photos may be used as promotional material for future Tokyo in Tulsa events. By signing the entry form, a contestant agrees to these terms.
Final entries for HALL COSPLAY will be Sunday at 1pm.
Winners for HALL COSPLAY will be announced during Closing Ceremonies.
