Hypothetical question? I have no intention of doing this.

I'm not staff or anything, but I'd vote against it on regulatory grounds as well as moral. There's no specific rule against it, however there are rules about costumes that have/promote hate speech (which I believe a KKK uniform would definitely fall under.) While swastika's are allowed, I'm not sure any of the staff or higher ups would be comfortable allowing a KKK uniform to be associated with their convention (whether or not you're 'jokingly' cosplaying or an actual KKK member) and would promptly ask you to change or promptly bar you from the con.
But hey, man, if you want to chance it, feel free. I honestly don't see the fun in having a 's*it storm' follow you around because of it, but to each their own.

As far as the Nazi thing goes, I'm still all for this:
In replacement for the swastika, I would highly recommend screenprinting the appropriate country heads from here for your insignias. (Make sure your volume is UP. )
