  • Cosplay Responsibly Series: Part 2 - Cosplay is Not Consent: Respecting Boundaries

    The world of cosplay is a beautiful tapestry woven from threads of creativity, community, and homage to beloved characters from various media. The atmosphere at conventions can be electrifying, filled with fans who share the same passion for their favorite shows, comics, or video games. However, one must not forget a fundamental rule that holds true both inside and outside the realm of cosplay: personal boundaries should always be respected. In simpler terms, cosplay is not consent.

    This phrase has become a rallying cry in recent years, often seen on signs at conventions or as hashtags on social media, to educate the community about respecting personal space. Yet, why does something so fundamental need reiteration?

    The sad reality is that harassment is a pervasive issue within the cosplay community. Despite the colorful costumes and the apparent joviality of these events, instances of unwanted touching, photographing, or even stalking are not uncommon. Often, the victims are women, but it can happen to anyone, regardless of gender, age, or the type of costume they are wearing.

    Several conventions have now implemented strict harassment policies, often accompanied by visible signage and awareness campaigns. These measures are a step in the right direction, but the responsibility ultimately lies with the individual attendees to treat each other with respect.

    Let's consider photography, a common activity at conventions. The rule should be simple: always ask for permission before taking someone's photo. And if the person says no, respect that decision without argument. This policy isn't merely about courtesy; it's about acknowledging another person's agency and the right to control how their likeness is used.

    The same rules apply to physical interactions. Just because someone is dressed as a flirtatious character doesn't mean they are inviting flirtatious behavior. A costume is not an invitation for touch, remarks, or any other form of interaction that hasn't been explicitly permitted.

    Legal repercussions can follow those who fail to respect these boundaries. Harassment is a criminal offense in many jurisdictions, and even without immediate legal consequences, offenders may find themselves banned from future events, damaging their reputation within the community.

    Cosplay offers a unique space for self-expression, but it's vital to remember that this freedom should not infringe upon someone else's. By being vigilant, respectful, and mindful of consent, we can all contribute to making the world of cosplay a safe, enjoyable space for everyone involved.
