While I have known for ages what I'm going as, my boyfriend just recently decided to go as Rick Astley (anyone who has ever been rick rolled, you should know who I'm talking about)...the costume is going to be pretty much just normal clothes, and he came up with the idea of having the song playing....
I figure it wouldn't be too hard to rig up, just an mp3 player and two small speakers, probably placed in pockets...however, they don't really mention music in any of the cosplay guidelines, so I don't know if he'll be able to play the music....the outfit would just make a lot more sense with the song, otherwise it wouldn't matter...

Does anyone know if music is allowed? It would be played at a reasonable volume, of course....

I think it would be GREAT. As far as I know, there aren't any rules about playing MP3's with speakers, and I think everyone would get a huge kick out of Rick Roll being cosplayed. As long as you're not interfering with other events (such as panels being disrupted with "NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP" etc), it shouldn't be a problem.

I don't know that there's a hard and fast rule about playing music in the hallways...if you're playing your music and an IRT member or other staffer asks you to turn it down or put it away entirely, please be sure and comply with their wishes :)

And, I hope it's not necessary to even say this, but you don't need to be playing it loudly enough for people across the lobby to hear in the first place, or as DesertLily mentioned, playing it somewhere that's very disruptive such as a panel or video room X3 Just be courteous to others!

I've walked around with my character's theme playing before, and nobody said a word. It isn't an issue unless it's too loud I think.

If I see you, I'll tell my friend to ask you a question, and after she goes over to you and comes back asking "huh?" I'll go RICK ROLL'D.

hahahahahaha.

Really cool costume idea.

LoL, my friends who cosplayed as the Elite Beat Agents last year wanted to take a recording from the DS game and play it while they would do their poses... something like "AGENTS ARE GOOOOOOOO!" and then wave their arms wildly in the air.

All I want to know is, if you go to the con and do this cosplay, will you ever give us up, let us down and /or run around and desert us?

That would be very awesome! As long as the music isn't too loud, you'll be just fine.
It's a great idea, too.
My friend and I did something similar back in high school, so there's no reason why the convention should care. XD

We did the Rick Roll last year, myself and like 8 others were walking around with a laptop and speakers playing the Robo remix of Never gonna give you up. Was pretty good stuff.

Ah Rick rolling.

As long as the prop falls within size guidelines, it should be fine.
I doubt we'd have to tell you to turn it off.
Only times maybe during a emergency where we need to hear, or during the night when people are trying to sleep.
Also, please be warned though that people will want to dance around you and if that creates a crowd causing traffic, we will have to ask you to stop and move.
Other than that, I am all for it.

BTW, did you know a Korean artist redid the original song.
Now you can be literally Rick rolled internationally.
:D

Gyu Lee

For two years I had music on during the hallways and I never got caught (psp connected to small loud speakers hidden in pants pocket) and in fact the owner of nickel city said he liked the idea so it should be ok
