Hello! I am cosplaying as Nell from Bleach
Spoiler
However, at this point Nell goes barefoot. I know there isn't anything in the rules about whether going barefoot is banned, so I assume it's okay, but I just want to check while I still have enough time to make or buy some shoes! I'd hate to have to wear something last minute that didn't go with the costume.

Thanks so much!

No, it is not okay - you don't want to get hurt if you step on something sharp, and the hotel certainly doesn't want someone injured on their property, so you must wear shoes of some sort!

It's been allowed before that you could wear some flip-flops (I would go for clear straps if you can find them, so they're less noticeable if you get ninja-photographed) or other slip-on shoes and take them off for photos ONLY, putting them right back on afterwards. The floor can get kind of icky, though...you might end up wanting to keep them on the whole time x.x

Okay, thanks! Glad to know ahead of time.

That and there are usually health concerns about going barefoot, that's why you see those signs in gas stations 'No shirt, no shoes, no service'

I've also heard of/seen topless sandals (which are basically flip-flops without that top part on them and adhere to the bottom of your feet)
Not sure if you can buy them in stores, but I have seem many links for them online, so if you can't get then for ACen, you could think about them for another con to achieve that barefoot-look. :3
