I live in France, and for a few years, there have been laws that forbid you to conceal your face in public. That means no zentai, no bavaclava, no fursuit, no kig.

Apparently, it is possible to do it in specific occasions such as festivals, artistic movements... but this is vague. Aren't cons more or less public? Doing a photoshoot in a random outside place, like I see many of you guys do, is it risky?

I know there are not many kigs in France at all (the few I know of have been upset about the laws - they still showed up at a con, but I don't know if they had trouble doing that).

I'd love to kig publically, but I'm afraid to get into legal trouble, to be forced to unmask, which would be more than a little awkward! (I'm no evildoer, I promise!)

How about you? In your country, city or state? It'd be interesting to know.

Judging by the artikel on wikipedia I just read, there seems to be no law in the netherlands that forbis us from concealing our face. For as far as I know you could just come here and kig in public, which is pretty awesome. I am not 100 percent certain though.

Sorry you can't go out on the streets in france, they tried to get that same law in our system, but as far as I know that fell flat on its face.

Edit: Can't find any good data, its all dated, all sources are from 2011, when it was a trending topic. The only recent source(22.5.2015) tells me its only illigal to wear face concealing clothing in public-transport, schools, gouverment buildings and hospitals.

I would put it down more to how tolerant your country is towards things that originate from another country, not just the laws. Religious headwear was a subject of debate a few years back, but one cannot say that animegao would get the same evil eye.

I live in England and I would say it's a case for me of it being impossible to tell how people will react and how judgemental they are. Though unconnected, disability discrimination and "being different" has been a serious problem and that alone shows the worst of my country.

Because I still live with my parents (due to a housing crisis), I'm using a lockable vinyl media flight case to hold everything. I've just started piecing my kit out by slowly moving small chunks of money from my bank account into a PayPal one. I already have my breast forms so far.

Well, I can say that where I live I am ok, can kig out in public without getting in trouble from the law, can't say the same about the locals though so a handler is still advised ;)

As for France, their is quite a few kigs their now, and they do go of to cons and have no issues that all from what I understand. When I last visited them we did kig in public and didn't have any large issues, had police walk past at one point and they didn't tell us of at all, only issue we had was the security for a shopping center was starting to worry about the large crowed we gathered ;)

So yes, that is the law but it is not all that strict from what I can tell. Think it is more used as a law to stop people who look like they might do bad things more than anything else, so is only applied when they want to.

Hi! It's great to meet another French kigger here!

Thank you for reassuring me! :D

So, at least I know I wouldn't be in too much awkward trouble if I did that.

Now, I would prefer to not kig on my own. Need to find others, since l'union fait la force. (just in case things get ugly)
