Cosplaying at the cinema
Hello, I have been thinking of wearing my Bilbo Baggins cosplay when going to see the hobbit at the cinema next month. However after the shooting earlier this year I'm a bit worried that I won't be aloud in. I've seen people cosplaying at the cinema in the past but I don't want to risk it. Does anyone know anything? I am going to an odeon cinema. Any help would be really appreciated, thanks!

In my experiences, I've never not being allowed in when wearing costumes, and neither have friends.

I think if you wore the costume, but neglected any props that wouldn't fit into a bag or that'd look dangerous, you should be fine.

I can't imagine it'd be a problem - after all hobbits just tend to wear nice coats and waistcoats and whatnot and don't look too menacing. Obviously don't take a sword in with you (but that should be logical for any cinema screening) and you might want to wear shoes, both to appear less strange and of course to protect your feet, but other than that it should be fine.
If you're really worried you could always phone up or email your cinema and ask. Have fun, and I hope it goes down well.

I know people who've gone to early screenings in costumes and so I don't see why you'd have any trouble. Just avoid any props that could be misconstrued as threatening.

My friends and I cosplayed for the first screening of Deathly Hallows at my local cinema and we were fine. We stashed wands and daggers and stuff in bags, if we brought them at all, and just generally didn't make a nuisance of ourselves or give the cinema any reason to kick us out. In the end, we ended up being a second tourist attraction, with the number of people who wanted to take photos with us!

Same advice as above, I'd suggest: Shoes on, swords off

As long as you wore shoes and didn't have sword/weapon props, you'll be fine.

You can't be hobbits without big hairy feet!

Yeah generally you don't want to be carrying anything that could be construed as a dangerous weapon in public anyway never might just to the cinema but as Zelvyne said, phone the cinema and just explain "you're a huge fan blah blah and you'd like to dress up as a hobbit, is that ok?" I'm sure they won't say no.

Thank you everyone. I Think that I may be able to get away with the feet, but unfortunately I don't think I'll be aloud to take sting or his walking stick. However regardless I could just use the ring to sneak in c:!
Hopefully u will be able to go as it would be a missed opertunity not too

As long as you aren't showing sexy pecs you'll be fine (seriously though they could refuse you for showing too much skin)!! But aside from that it's probs just weapons as Nixie mentioned.
So you'll be fine XD

I'd take shoes with you in case :/

You should defiantly do that!!

I think I will, I don't want to miss the film just because I don't have shoes!!
