THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT PHOENIX COMICON

Phoenix Comicon Spans 4 Days, 4 Floors, and 3 Hotels

We are more than just a pop culture

convention - we are a pop culture

experience. The Phoenix Convention

Center Lower Level features the Exhibitor Hall

where we have more than 600 vendors, booths,

artists, authors, creators and more. We’ve

got more than 1000 hours of Programming

happening on the 1st and 2nd Levels of the

North and West Buildings of the Phoenix

Convention Center, plus Tabletop and Console

Gaming at the Hyatt Regency. Up on the Third

Floor we have our Hall of Heroes where you

can meet our Celebrity Guests, get Photo Ops

and Autographs, and see all of our Costuming

Groups. Outside on Adams Street, we’ll be

throwing a party filled with live music, drinks

and food trucks!

for donations to various charities. Most, if not

all, of our anime voice actors and Film and TV

actors have a fee for purchasing autographs

or will sell you a photograph, book or other

item and then autograph that item for no

additional charge. Prices are generally clearly

posted at the guests table, but it doesn’t hurt

to ask.

• Panels and Programming! As Phoenix

Comicon grows, more people want to attend

programming and spotlight panels and there

are some updates to be aware of.

• Seats cannot be saved.

• We do not clear the rooms between panels.

• No video can be taken in Spotlight

Ballroom 301

• Photo Ops! Head to the Third Floor Hall

of Heroes to buy professional photo

opportunities with your favorite guests. Up

to 4 people can be in a single photo taken by

a professional photographer with a formal

background, printed on an 8”x10” glossy print

that includes the Phoenix Comicon logo.

• Autographs! You can also get autographs

from guests up in the Hall of Heroes on the

Third Floor. Plan ahead to be at signing times

to get your favorite guest signatures. Bring

an item to be signed or buy a photo onsite.

Most comic book creators and authors do not

charge for autographs, though some do ask

June 2-5, 2016 • Phoenixcomicon.com • Phoenix Convention Center

Special Events! There are a few special events

where we need to charge a small fee in order

to offset the expenses of producing the event.

We’ll also be having some special fund raisers

for Kids Need to Read and will be charging

admission, but the proceeds will go to support

the charity. Any event that requires a special

admission or ticket will be advertised as such

on our website and in the program guide.

Be Aware of Traffic! No sitting or camping out

in hallways. Please keep pathways clear so all

attendees can move around freely. No stopping

or gathering on the Third Floor Skybridge

between the North and West Buildings.

PHOENIX COMICON CONVENTION POLICIES

8

Our policies are to ensure the

safety and enjoyment of all

of our attendees, guests,

volunteers, and exhibitors while working

in conjunction with federal, state, and

local laws along with the policies of the

Phoenix Convention Center and host

hotels.

Phoenix Comicon reserves the

right to revoke the membership badge

of anyone found in violation of these

policies. Any violation which involves

activities prohibited by law will result

in notification to the proper authorities.

MEMBERSHIP FEES/BADGES

• Membership fees are non-refundable.

• Badges must be worn and visible at

all times. Individuals without badges

will not be allowed in convention space.

• Acceptance of a Phoenix Comicon

membership badge and admission

to the convention constitutes an

agreement to allow Phoenix Comicon,

its agents, or assignees to use your

image and/or likeness for advertising or

promotion by the Phoenix Comicon and

by any media now known or hereafter

devised.

• It is unlawful to duplicate Phoenix

Comicon membership badges.

• Each badge admits one person to

Phoenix Comicon.

• Badges are non-transferable and

non-replaceable.

ANIMALS

Service and assistance animals are

permitted in all public areas and at all

times. No other animals will be permitted

FIREARMS

As a licensed liquor establishment, the

Phoenix Convention Center is governed

by Arizona law which prohibits the

possession of firearms at the Phoenix

Convention Center and host hotels by

any person other than a law enforcement

officer. Personal possession of firearms

is therefore prohibited, including

concealed and non-concealed firearms

and weapons.

PROPS/WEAPONS

PEACE BONDING PROCEDURE

All costume weapons that the Phoenix

Convention Center (PCC) Security and

Phoenix Police Officers determine to

appear dangerous, on a case-by-case

basis, shall be peace bonded before

being allowed into the convention

center. Peace bonding tables will be

located on street level at designated

main entrances to the PCC. Security

and off-duty Phoenix Police Officers will

conduct the peace bonding process:

• Peace bonded costume weapons will

be recognizable by a bright neon tag

attached to a non-intrusive area of the

prop weapon. The tag must remain

visible at all times.

• If the weapon is steel, such as a

sword, the peace bond process will

secure the sword inside the sheath. At

no time shall the sword be removed

from the sheath while attending the

event.

• If a costume weapon is confiscated

it will be tagged with the owners name

written on the tag. Confiscated weapons

will only be returned to the owner when

they are departing the event. The PCC

is not responsible for any damage to

confiscated weapons.

allowed. This includes but is not limited

to such signs as “Free Hugs,” “Will

Yuri for Yaoi,” or “Glomps for Cash.”

Attendees carrying such signage will be

Phoenix Comicon staff reserves the

right to revoke the badges of attendees

carrying such signs. Signs that are

a necessary part of a costume may

be permitted with the approval of

convention staff.

PHOTOGRAPHY

When taking pictures, please be conscious

of traffic around you and do not

block walkways for extended periods.

Please be considerate and ask before

taking pictures of other attendees,

guests, or staff.

COSTUMES

• Above all, Phoenix Comicon is a

family-friendly event. Please exercise

modesty when wearing your costume.

If Phoenix Comicon staff feels your

costume is too revealing or offensive

to other attendees, you may be asked

to change. If you have questions

about what is acceptable, please

contact costuming@phoenixcomicon.

com or visit any Phoenix Comicon

Information Desk.

• Costumes must cover at least

as much as a swimsuit acceptable

for public pools and beaches. That

coverage also applies to chest

enhancing padding. No under- or

side-cupping. Females must cover

the nipple, sides of the breast and

complete buttocks. Males must cover

the entire groin area and the complete

buttocks.

• Remember appropriate undergarments.

No see-through clothing, or

anything tight enough to reveal your

“nooks and crannies.” Clothing must

not be so tight as to reveal the genitalia

of the person and must not be

sheer enough to expose areas which

must be covered.

• Body paint and nudity are NOT

costumes, and are prohibited from

convention premises. Phoenix has

nudity laws, and police will be around.

• Be aware of your surroundings.

Your costume must permit a clear

line of sight. If your costume has

extensions (like wings and spikes),

avoid bumping into things or people.

If your costume has pieces that

extend from it (wings, spikes, armor,

etc.) or you are carrying a large prop,

please be aware of your surroundings

and of people around you. You may

be asked to change your costume or

remove your prop from convention

space if it is found to be disruptive or

dangerous.

• Roller Skates/Blades may not be

worn inside the Phoenix Convention

Center or Host Hotels.

• Protective footwear, with a hard

sole, is required.

• Military and law enforcement

cosplay must not be realistic enough

to pass for the real thing.

• Please do not block doorways,

walkways, or exits with your costume,

props, or costume pieces.

• Depictions of swastikas are not

allowed and will be asked to be

removed.

• Religious cosplay must not be

inflammatory or disrespectful.

• Metal weapons are permitted if

sheathed, but not projectile weapons

or flail weapons even if holstered or

tied. Bullwhips are permitted only if

they are tied up.

• Phoenix Comicon staff has

final say whether your costume is

inappropriate, and will ask you to

leave the convention area until you

comply with the costume policy.

HARASSMENT

AND DISCRIMINATION

Phoenix Comicon is firmly committed

to providing a positive experience free

of discrimination, harassment and bias.

Each attendee is personally responsible

for maintaining such an environment.

Phoenix Comicon prohibits any actions,

words, jokes, or comments based on

an individual’s race, sex, sexual preferences,

ethnic background, age, religion,

physical condition, or other legally protected

characteristic. Any conduct or

action, whether overt or subtle, which

creates an offensive or hostile environment

is prohibited and will be grounds

for immediate action up to and including

police involvement.

Phoenix Comicon prohibits any

harassment between volunteers,

attendees, exhibitors or guests on the

basis of sex. No person, male or female,

should be subjected to unsolicited

or unwelcome sexual overtones and

conduct, either verbal or physical.

Misconduct applies to both males and

females, and includes harassment

between individuals regardless of sex.

Any person who believes he or she is

a victim of sexual or discriminatory

harassment is encouraged to let the

harasser know that his or her behavior

is unwelcome. Those who believe

they have been harassed should

immediately report the matter to

Facility Security Personnel, Local Police

or Phoenix Comicon Staff.

COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT

Phoenix Comicon supports the movement

“Cosplay is not Consent” to empower

fan convention costume enthusiasts

(aka “cosplayers”) to SPEAK OUT

against inappropriate social behavior of

a sexual and/or stereotypical nature for

themselves and fellow fans. Cosplay is

NOT consent!

The culture of Cosplay is one of

fun, creativity, and mutual respect.

Unfortunately, not every fan adheres

to the “respect” part. Cosplay is NOT

Consent - and cosplayers who dress

in (sometimes) revealing costumes

should not accept inappropriate

behavior from their peers. Speak

out; speak up; and help keep cosplay

comfortable and fun!

You should make every attempt to

gain direct consent on all photographs

of cosplay, including all private

photographers. All photographers,

commercial and private, should refrain

from taking secret photos or photos of

cosplayers in compromised positions

and should not take photos with the

intent of commercialization without

consent of the subject. Cosplayers love

to have their photos taken, so just be

polite and ask!
