Oshi no Ko Cosplayer Causes Trouble at Disney, on June 18th. The problem is that wearing cosplay to such places is prohibited because, according to Disney, it is seen as advertising.
The controversy arose when an influencer from Taiwan known as “Lily Flute” decided to post a video on TikTok where she was seen playing a flute dressed as a character from “Oshi no Ko,” thus violating the park’s rules, as the use of cosplay is prohibited.
Oshi no Ko Cosplayer Causes Trouble at Disney
On her official Instagram (and Facebook) profile, the young woman apologized for all the problems caused. She mentioned that she had done enough research on the rules of Disney Japan, such as not being allowed to bring musical instruments or wear cosplay.
Regarding her attire, she stated that she believed it would be allowed since she wasn’t portraying a Disney character, and the park’s staff didn’t raise any issues with her (presumably because they didn’t recognize the costumes).
The influencer also stated that her activity was non-commercial and expressed her love for Japan while expressing her sadness over the turmoil she caused. It was only after posting the video on social media that the Japanese started criticizing her and warning her about the rules.
This confusion caused by the influencer quickly went viral. Some understood her situation, considering that she made a mistake by being unaware of the park’s rules, but there were also people who criticized her for disrespecting the park’s regulations.
