These are all very cool but honest question - aren't they all trademarked or copyrighted characters?   That's against the CoC.  

 

Can't play a character that is named, resembles, references, or has the same backstory. But a temporary costume for a dress up contest is typically gonna be okay.

That said, @Excraft if you see any Ghost Buster themed characters running around doing content and crossing the beams, you should report that. You are now the costume police and I'll provide your first potential lead which should be researched thoroughly. https://forums.homecomingservers.com/topic/1090-post-your-best-costume-designs-here/

I don't remember there being any allowance for "dress up for contests" in the CoC.  I'm just going by what's there and GM posts like this one

I'm just asking a question, not trying to be a jerk about it.  Rules are rules and should be applied evenly and fairly.  If there's some allowance for costume contests, then it should be written into the CoC.

@Excraft so you don't want to be the costume police or you do..

 

"a temporary costume for a dress up contest is typically gonna be okay."

(note my sarcasm setting is currently on high)

No, I don't want to be costume police.  I'm not the one who cried about copycat characters to get this rule implemented.  I'm just asking the question since it is in the rules and I don't see "temporary costumes for dress up" being allowed for in the official CoC.  Here's a link for you - https://forums.homecomingservers.com/code-of-conduct/

Additionally, creating copies of existing characters from the City of Heroes / Villains lore or naming your Supergroup after existing groups from the City of Heroes / Villains lore is not permitted.

I don't see where it says temporary costumes are ok in there, but maybe I'm missing it.  Like I said, rules are great but they need to be applied fairly and equally.
