COMIC CON RULES
We want everyone to have a great time at our family friendly event at Comic Con Costa Brava and consequently these guidelines on behaviour for ALL attendees are very important to us. Any violation of the following policies will result in you being asked to leave the event:
RULE #1
BE CONSIDERATE TOWARDS FELLOW ATTENDEES
RULE #2
ALWAYS ASK BEFORE TAKING A PHOTOGRAPH OF A COSPLAYER OR AN ARTIST
RULE #3
ACT RESPONSIBLY WITH YOUR COSPLAY PROPS
RULE #4
MANY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC FIND WEAPONS OFFENSIVE – WHEN TRAVELING TO AND FROM THE VENUE OR SIMPLY RELAXING OUTSIDE BE MINDFUL THAT NOT EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT COSPLAY. REALISTIC PROPS COULD CAUSE WORRY OR CONCERN FOR THE SAFETY OF THE PUBLIC
RULE #5
CONSIDER THE “SOCIAL MEDIA” TEST – IF YOU WERE PHOTOGRAPHED AND THE IMAGE WENT VIRAL, WOULD THE GENERAL PUBLIC BE OFFENDED BY YOUR OUTFIT. IF THE ANSWER IS YES THEN DO NOT BRING YOUR COSTUME TO THE EVENT
RULE #6
THIS ALSO APPLIES TO OFFENSIVE BEHAVIOR ONCE INSIDE THE EVENT. THIS INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO:
- TOUCHING OTHER ATTENDEES (AND THEIR COSTUMES) WITHOUT CONSENT
- AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR TOWARDS OTHER ATTENDEES
- AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR TOWARDS CREW
- INAPPROPRIATE GESTURES AND POSES
- INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS
- EXCESSIVE SWEARING
RULE #7
ANY VIOLENCE, THREATS OF VIOLENCE OR INTIMIDATION TOWARDS ANY ATTENDEE OR CREW MEMBER WILL RESULT IN IMMEDIATE REMOVAL FROM THE EVENT
RULE #8
NUDITY
- WE HAVE A ZERO TOLERANCE FOR NUDITY
- COSTUMES MUST BE NO SMALLER THAN STANDARD SWIMWEAR
- IF YOUR COSPLAY IS REVEALING ENSURE VITAL PARTS ARE COVERED AT ALL TIMES AND CONSIDER THE USE OF TAPE TO KEEP YOUR COSTUME SECURE
- COSTUMES WHICH GIVE THE ILLUSION OF NUDITY ARE ALSO NOT PERMITTED
RULE #9
WEAPONS AND PROPS
WE KNOW THAT YOUR PROPS ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOUR COSPLAY BUT WE ASK THAT YOU REFER TO THE RULES BELOW BEFORE BRINGING YOUR PROP OR WEAPON TO AN EVENT:
