Idol Showcase Questions

Post by DeskLampNinja »

The Idol Showcase rules say that costumes of characters that are non-canon are sometimes allowed. Does this mean that someone would be able to cosplay an idol version of a character that isn't usually a performer? The wording isn't the absolute clearest,,,

Also, do the characters and music have to be from the same series?

We would likely handle applications like this on a case to case basis. As long as you could justify to us why you chose to do a certain character and have them dance to a specific song I don't think it would be a problem. Both the character and the song you are performing would have to have originated from Japan, as per Anime Boston cosplay event policy.

Best,
