Can you wear stilts as part of a costume?

I'm just a Mazinger in a rock and roll band!

I don't see why not. I've seen some Pyramid Head cosplayers doing it in the past. There may be some sort of height rule though. But if you can conceal them under your costume, just say you are naturally 8 feet tall. ^^

There aren't currently any rules about stilts, but if you wear them you must do so in a safe manner. You have to be able to get off of them fairly quickly (so nothing that attaches to your shoes) in case we need to clear an area quickly. Also be mindful that many of the hotel hallways have low ceilings and that many places are very crowded.

...in short, please don't be the guy that makes us make a rule against stilts.

As rabbi said there is no rules against stilts, though if possible it would be nice if you had a friend/spotter to help you around.
