✿ Please be mindful of the costume you choose to wear. We will be in public, so please do not wear a very revealing costume. It’s okay to show some leg, but don’t wear a bikini-type cosplay. This rule mainly applies to women, but men, take it easy too. If you’re not sure if something will be okay or not, it's okay to ask.

✿ NO GUN PROPS AT ALL. NO LIVE STEEL WEAPONS. Wooden or other material swords/staffs/whatever are okay.

✿ Please do not bring any alcohol or cigarettes to the park. We want to be respectful to the other park visitors as well as to each other. In addition, we do not have an alcohol permit.

✿ Please be respectful of the park! Do not feed the wildlife. Do not damage, deface, remove or tamper with any property. Injury, damage or removal of any structure, rock, plant, bird or wild animal is prohibited by the Morris County Park System.

✿ Pick up after yourself. No littering!

The Cosplay Picnic has been moved to the Passaic River County Park in Chatham, New Jersey ([url]http://www.morrisparks.net/aspparks/passaicmain.asp[/url]) due to high picnic permit costs (This park is the least expensive).

We will also not be able to have a rain date due to said permit costs, so keep your fingers crossed for a sunny day on the 14th.
