General Dress Code

  • Clothing cannot show less than what a typical swimsuit covers (standard bikini, trunks, etc.)

  • Nipples must be covered at all times by all genders. Opaque tape may be used to cover nipples. While being topless in public is legal in the city of Columbus, the convention venue is private property and they have the right to define dress standards.

  • Metal is permitted on clothing as long as it is dull and does not extend more than 2 inches. These should not be able to damage any property by walking past it.

  • Clothing that contains offensive or inappropriate messages is not permitted. In the event that this rule is ignored, TORG Gaming Expo reserves the right to ask you to cover up or change your clothes.

  • 20th & 21st-century uniforms may not be worn as costumes. These include any uniform that can be construed as a military uniform or militia from any country or a uniform worn in an official capacity, such as security guard, police officer, deputy, fire marshal, paramedic, etc. Any uniform, flag, badge, or markings that are affiliated with any terror group is also prohibited.


Cosplay Dress Code

  • The general dress codes listed anywhere above also apply to ALL costumes. No exceptions.

  • No live steel, airsoft guns, props that exceed six feet, projectile toys (such as Nerf darts, toy bow and arrow, etc.), or props that swing. YOU are responsible for your prop so PLEASE pay attention when in crowded areas. TORG Gaming Expo reserves the right to confiscate any prop if it damages or threatens to damage persons or property.

  • Any costume that restricts vision, requires stilts, or has large, bulky armor/props, must be accompanied by a handler who can navigate you through the hallways without any trouble. Costumes with stilts MAY NOT be worn in elevators.

  • Please ensure that costumes that all feathers, glitter, or body paint are sealed properly. All costumes may be subject to a smear test to ensure that they will not come off on others or walls through casual contact.


As stated above, ALL attendees must wear SHOES to our convention. No form of conveyance other than traditional walking is permitted unless expressly permitted by TORG Gaming Expo. Exceptions will be made for persons with mobility challenges as appropriate. We ask that you protect yourself, other attendees, and our venue, by not wearing ice skates (protectively covered or otherwise), roller skates, roller blades, skateboards, Heeleys, etc. If you are found wearing anything but traditional footwear, TORG Gaming Expo will ask you to change your shoes. Please respect others and the property we are allowed to host at every year.
