Tokyo Comic-Con just banned men from dressing up as women at their event
Dressing up as your favorite comic book, film, anime or cartoon character is one of the great joys of going to a Comic-Con event. Unfortunately, for the upcoming Tokyo Comic-Con, that joy now has a gendered limit on it.
"Men dressing as women is prohibited," the official site said, according to RocketNews24's translation.
The rule against cross-gender cosplay (sometimes called "crossplay") stands right next to some other rules like no swords and no photography in changing rooms. The comic exhibition also doesn't seem to have a rule banning women from dressing up as men.
Tokyo Comic-Con did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
