Cosplay rules

Categories for Genki ’09 Cosplay Show:
Most LOL (Laughing out loud)
This is awarded for funnies performance.

Most Genki
The wackiest idea, weirdest punchline, or something else entirely that just hasn’t been seen before (in Denmark or maybe even the world!)

Alpha Omega
The show that has that little “je ne sais quoi” as well as a mix of nice costumes, timing, and well-performed act.

Best Do
Most far out or good looking wig/hairdo.

Best Prop
Best made prop/weapon/etc.

The greatest emphasis is put on performance, originality, and entertainment value due to the brief notice of Genki ’09. Hence it is irrelevent whether the costume(s) you and/or your group members are wearing have been bought pre-made or if you made it yourself from scratch – homemade costumes are a plus, but not the biggest point getter (it doesn’t hurt being honest about the costume when signing up for the cosplay competition though).

And remember, you’re allowed to reuse costumes from prior events!

Meeting concerning cosplay on Saturday:
Info-meeting for cosplayers participating in the show.
All participants meet at __ in the great hall to find out who goes on stage when and to do audio rehersals. There will be an opportunity to get something to eat and drink before showtime. Everything could potentially go super smooth, in which case you can go get lunch somewhere, if you want to.

We have five wireless microphones availaable. If you have any questions, you can contact os on, and yes, if you have your own mic and want to use that one (if for instance it is made as an accessory to one’s character, but also still works as a mic), then write to the above mail.

Music, pre-recorded acts, and sound effects (if any) must be delivered in .mp3 or .wav format as well as on an audio CD on which the sound effects is the only content. This is så the technicians won’t have to fumble around to find the correct track.

Sets / stage stuff / bigger equipment:
Well, if you have something that takes like 30 minutes or more to set up, we will have to turn you down. However, if it takes about a minute or less to set up, and is do-able, then you are more than welcome to add to the stage. Notice, however, that we don’t having any fancy stuff like curtains that can cover up the stage, but if you want to keep an air of mystery about what you are doing until the actual show starts, then our pashiri will do whatever they can to help (within reason, of course).

Weapon and prop rules

The Organizers retain the right to confiscate weapons/props that do not abide by our rules or that are used in a dangerous manner. The reason for these rules are so we don’t get shut down by the police.

§1 Danish law must be abided by at all times.

§2 All weapons and props must be registered at the reception.

§3 Weapons that are not allowed:

  • Metal weapons (e.g. swords, axes, knives)
  • Archery equipment
  • Soft air/Hardball handguns
  • Chemical/gun powder weapons (smokebombs, flame-throwers, fireworks)

§4 Exceptions for weapons can be made if the cosplay organizers receive a mail on, explaining the circumstances. So if for instance you wanted to bring a sword, and you have a display permit or similar, you can bring it on stage if you can show a copy of the permit.

If you have a question about the weapon or prop you want to bring to Genki, we ask that you write us on

Film and photo policy
