Well I'm from San Francisco, so I saw a group of 20 men and women marching the street buck naked shouting "Join us, be natural, join us". It's not something you see everyday, but it wasn't as crazy as you think it is lol.

It's just marching. How did others react to it?

Somewhere else, someone would have called the cops.

Do you want to go to prison?

However, unless you cosplay as Kondou from Gintama then you're good.

Save naked cosplay for the bedroom. Or is that getting out of the costume, but leaving the make up and fake jewelry, foot wear, or even sword belt on.

For any question "should I do X naked?", there is always one correct answer.

For some people the answer is always "Yes", unless the question involves deep-frying anything. (Seriously, there are places that you just don't want grease burns.)

For most of the rest of us, the answer is almost always "No", unless the subject is sex, bathing, or possibly a few other things.

You can decide for yourself which category you are in.

I simply want to cosplay a naked anime character. Doesn't matter which one because they're naked.
Don't hate on my cosplay idea ok?


Depends on where the con is, I saw several naked people walking the streets in San Fransisco when I was there. Just be aware of your surroundings and be courteous. I have to believe you would be kicked out or asked to leave (if you are even allowed to enter) if you don't have permission ahead of time though. Personal recommendation? Wear just enough to cover the parts that would normally get you in trouble.

Go for it! If you really want to do a Madonna, Cher, Jlo, or Beyoncé, do it. Wear the same outfit as Beyoncé. You probably look cute in it.

Theoretically, since an anime convention is typically a ticketed event, any convention can be a clothing-optional area. By purchasing a ticket you are consenting to enter an area where nudity is allowed. But no anime conventions that I know of does this.


Just because you paid for admittance doesn't mean you've paid to remove the right to refuse service.
