  • Big Kids (older than 12), show your faces! Don’t wear masks, makeup, or face paint that covers your whole face.
  • Leave authentic-looking toy weapons at home. Don’t accessorize your costume with anything that could be mistaken for a real weapon.
  • Choose a costume that will wear well at the Zoo–nothing long enough to trip over or decorated with sharp objects or materials).
