Although we do
our best to make sure people can do the events they want to do, in the
end it's up to the individual to decide.

Right now it's just superheroes from print, TV, or film, so choose the good guys for a costume (and not what your opinion might be, but the general consensus of good ;)). Alter egos not permitted, so Clark and Tony need to stay home.

4. Try not to be too obscure. We don't want a room full of Supermans, but don't choose someone that was in one comic 300 years ago or we'll go WTF and make fun of you. :)

Don't sweat the details of the costume too much. If people can look at you and go, "Ah, yes, that there is Gambit," then you're good. I know we're all costume snobs (in a good way), but if your belt buckle is off or you don't have the exact shoes, we won't hold it against you nor will Guinness, but we might point and whisper.

(Ooh! I can swear over here!) HOWEVER ... it's great that this photo shoot has rules (I know how strict Guinness is, no problem there), but the two entries that I have pulled out above have gotten my blood boiling. Anyone who makes a rule that includes making fun of or pointing and whispering at someone in costume (posted on a costuming message board, for crying out loud!) is full of SHIT and doesn't deserve any costumer's support. And does not have mine. At the very least, if they want to make this attractive to the costuming community, they should ditch the "humor," which isn't funny at all.

I've deleted my post on LJ, and do apologize if anyone was offended.
It was all made in jest, and I certainly would never make fun of any
costumes if the belt wasn't "just right". As always, I'm very much in
awe of every costume I see, and seeing them all is the main reason I go
to D*C every year. Panels? Meh, I've been to two or three in the last 9 years. Costumes
and seeing the creativity of the people is what makes it for me. I hope you all will be able to join us.

It was a quick post she made on LJ just to answer some questions as the interest in this WRA has been very high and lots of people are asking the same questions, wanting to start planning if they can participate. If anything, Kimber was trying to lighten the mood. NO ONE is going to point fingers and laugh. NO ONE is going to say "WTF."We are all sci-fi nerd/fans/geeks (whatever)....and many of us love Dragon*Con because it allows us to be OURSELVES. This event is not meant to make people feel "excluded" or "bad," at all.Our group, CON*tourage, is merely promoting this event as it seems a great match for Dragon*Con since it has such a SUPER comic-book following. We'd be willing to bet that there will be "official" rules posted again, that are more streamline (sans dry humor). As has been mentioned, Kimber's comments were not meant to be mean or make people feel excluded. Kimber, herself, is a HUGE Sci-Fi geek and costumer, from what I can tell and if she didn't love the costuming community or Dragon*Con, I'm sure she wouldn't spend so much time with other volunteers trying to organize and event that is SUPPOSED TO BE FUN. Also...Kimber does not work for Guinness World Records, she is a staff member for D*Con and, we truly appreciate her helping organize such a unique and fun event for all walks of SUPERHEROES.

We're not going to be picky, and Guinness isn't going to go over every costume looking for details. We just ask that it's the whole costume (even cheap store-bought ones are welcome, and not just a t-shirt, cape, and jeans.
If it's recognizable, you're good to go.

people's negative reaction to it is kind of understandable. It was
sprung on us yesterday and it didn't seem like the event on the surface
took other activities for the superhero costumers into account very
well. It took quite a bit of a balancing act for the different shoots to
get themselves scheduled to accomodate the maximum number of people as
possible. Per example there was a lot of back and forth discussion about
get the Legion shoot at a time everyone could do and not conflict with
