To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all who will be attending this year’s Kitchener Comic Con, we ask that all visitors observe the following con policies. Any questions regarding these policies should be directed to the staff or office. Thank you.
No real weapons allowed, ALL ordnance prop accessories must be inspected by the Event Prop Master.
- No alcohol. This is not a licensed event.
- No Drugs, Theft, Vandalism are illegal and will be dealt with accordingly
- Smoking is prohibited except in designated areas outside of the building
- *Glomping is forbidden!
*Glomping* “Glomping” (Glomping is aggressive hugging, often without warning) can be disruptive and even cause harm to unsuspecting targets or bystanders being jostled in a crowded space. SO in short this is prohibited during the KCC event and can be disruptive to the event AND can cause harm to unsuspecting targets or bystanders by being jostled in a crowded space. Repeated problems may be considered disruptive behavior and can result in warnings and loss of convention membership.
**Costumes that are bulky, difficult to maneuver, restrict vision, have mascot-type heads, projecting shoulders or otherwise present possible safety issues for the wearer or those they come in contact with are asked to travel with an unencumbered escort (someone in no costume or one without any restricting features) when moving through high-traffic public areas of the con. If no escort is available, you may be asked to return the costume to your hotel room or car, or remove and safely carry the portions of your costume causing concern. Costume elements that may be offensive or disruptive are not welcome and anyone wearing them may be asked by the Kitchener Comic Convention staff to remove or cover up questionable items. So please try to keep props (ie: wings) within a reasonable size. Masks must be easy to take off. Costumes should reflect proper taste – ie, nothing bordering on pornographic.
Liability – Exhibitors and artists are responsible for their own property, merchandise and money, and under no circumstances will the Kitchener Comic Convention, or its agents are liable for loss or damage including but not limited to merchandise, equipment, or revenue.
