COSTUME AND WEAPONS POLICY:
I thought i should probably post this up for keeping things legit and safe.
1) Skimpy clothing is fine and dandy, there's characters that are pretty unclothed, however, no nudity.
2) No purposely offensive costumes. We may not be extremely family freindly, but remember, there is a line that we do draw when it comes to offensive costumes.. If you are unsure if your costume is in good guidelines, then please message the Con-director, Mark Miller
1) no actual guns, and if you have some sort of nerf thing to look like whatever character has that weapon, please, no projectiles to be shot. There's no nerf war anyways, so please, projectiles at home
2) knives, swords, and other stabby and pokey weapons should only be able to cut butter for your toast, and poke soap bubbles. As always, great to show people, but the bluntest of objects can somehow be hellish. So yeah, safety first, and be careful
3) Try not to flail them around. I know it's for show, i don't want a barrel of a gun going into someone's eye socket by accident. So please, try not to wield them like you're Conan.
4) No trying to snipe the Con-director... yup LOL
Above all though, be respectful, have fun, and definitely make sure all of you who have awesome costumes, get awesome pictures of your accessory and your character.
BEST PLACE FOR PICTURES:
I would suggest the best place for pictures would be near the tree in the frontal area to the right of the building (the right meaning itf you were looking at the street from the establishment)
TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
Get the flyer here and send it to your friends, they aren't going to want to miss it!
Send your friends to the event page.... we want to see them out there!
I want to prematurely give a big thank you to The Sikora Post for letting us host this awesome vent. I want to thank my amazing gaming director (and comedian of the night), David Schwartz and his wonderful helpers. A big thank you to all the vendors, musical acts, and event coordinators.... and most importantly... YOU for taking time to check this out. Without you, our gaming community isn't as strong, so hey, THANKS!
