Policies

If you have any questions about the General rules/policies send us an email at info@kokorokon.com and we’ll make sure you get an answer!

  • Respect your fellow attendees. Don’t do anything that harasses, threatens, or harms other attendees. If you are being harassed, threatened, or harmed, please find a member of the convention staff. See our anti-harassment policy for more details.

  • Wear your badge at all times. Your badge must be visible. If a staff member asks to see your badge or photo ID, you must show it to them. Kokorokon reserves the right to deny entrance to any part of convention space to anyone not wearing a valid convention badge.

  • Keep your kids with you. Attendees under 13 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Parents will be held responsible for any damages caused by their children.

  • Follow the prop and costume rules. See our Prop and Costume Policy for more details.

  • Follow hotel and convention center policies. 

The head of Kokorokon's Safety Department has the final say as to the interpretation of these rules.

Dress Code and Props

NO blatant nudity/adult-related content. Please use discretion with your character, props, and presentation. Shoes must be worn for your safety. You may wear sandals and remove them for photoshoots.

Prop and Weapon Policies:

The reality is that some props are not appropriate or safe in a public convention environment. The convention staff will use their discretion in allowing the prop.

 

To ensure safety we have general guidelines on props:

  1. Do not impede traffic (oversized)

  2. Do not damage property (sharp or heavy)

  3. Do not hurt or threaten anyone (obvious)

  4. No projectiles of any kind (arrows, Nerf darts, etc.).

  5. Prop weapons (such as swords) may NOT be live steel. It is both a safety risk and a violation of hotel policy.

  6. Live animals may not be used for props. Service animals ARE welcome subject to venue guidelines. Please respect the venue and all furniture, furnishings, and property

 

General Crafted Prop Guidelines: All attendees with props must go to ConOps upon arrival for inspection. Inspected props, in particular the more realistic the prop, may have a zip tie affixed around it to mark it has been reviewed.

 

The zip tie signifies to security and others that the prop has been checked. We will take all reasonable precautions to not damage the prop. Oversized props that pose a mobility hazard through doors, stairways, escalators, or elevators are prohibited.

 

Recommended dimensions are less than six feet in any direction; items in excess will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

 

Any prop, outfit or armor piece must not be made of a material that can injure a passerby or damage convention or hotel property.

 

Realistic looking props like guns must have an orange tip and should not be pointed at anyone unless posing for a photo. Use proper discipline. Violation of these policies include but not limited to removal from convention grounds.
