Rules and Guidelines
Attendee Code of Conduct:
Every attendee is required to follow KuroNeko Con's Policy of appropriate behavior and respect of fellow attendees, guests, staff, volunteers, vendors, artists, and all other associates involved in KuroNeko Con. If it is deemed that you have failed to do so, it is at KuroNeko Con's sole discretion to decide if you will be removed from the Convention. We welcome diversity of all races, genders, ages, sexual preferences and religions. Due to our family friendly image we will not allow nudity, sexual misconduct, offensive language, or anything else deemed inappropriate to anyone below the age of 18. We wish everyone to have a wonderful and fun filled convention that is safe and memorable.

No harassment of any kind, both physical and verbal.
Theft will be dealt with swiftly and immediately with a removal from the convention and a ban from future KuroNeko Con events.
Intentional damage of KuroNeko Con's or our current venue's property will result in removal from the convention and a ban from future KuroNeko Con events. 'Accidental' damage will be dealt with on a case by case basis. In either scenario, you will be held liable for repaying the full amount of damages to said property.
No sexual misconduct involving indecent exposure/nudity, sexual harassment, or unwanted touching. Yes, this does include hugs and 'glomping'. If you are not sure if someone is comfortable with either of these behaviors- always, always ask permission.
Engaging in any activity that is actively prohibited by law (including but not limited to use of illegal substances, alcohol, or violence) is strictly prohibited.
No real weapons, or anything used or brandished as a weapon is allowed at our Convention, legal or illegal. For prop weapons, you must have them checked at our peacebonding booth prior to carrying them on the convention floor. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of peacebonding please see our 'Frequently Asked Questions' section of the website.
No offensive language
We will not tolerate discrimination of any kind based on race/gender/age/sexual preference/religion/etc.
No disruptive or unsafe behavior of any kind that disturbs the public/fellow attendees/events/guests/vendors/artists involved with KuroNeko Con.
Badges must be worn at all times and individuals without them will be removed from access to KuroNeko Con. A fee will be charged for loss of your badge and replacement
KuroNeko Con will not be held responsible for any loss, damage, theft, or injury you receive at our Convention.
Each guest of honor will be given a time for autograph sessions, please respect those times and follow all directions given by KuroNeko Con staff.
We are all excited about costumes of all our favorite characters and fashions, but we reserve the right to deem costumes unacceptable or inappropriate and may ask the wearer to make modifications as necessary due to our family friendly nature. Attire must be equivalent to that of at least a bikini swimsuit at all times during the convention. Please keep that in mind. Also, shoes are required at all times during the convention as required by public health and safety laws.
Alcohol and Drugs:
As our event takes place at a school, and is family friendly, consumption of alcohol on the campus is strictly forbidden even for those of legal age. Any illegal substances will be cause for an immediate call to the local law enforcement. Either of these offenses at our event will be cause for immediate removal from the convention premises and a ban from future KuroNeko Con events.
We don't like to have to say this, but please keep a minimum standard of health and personal upkeep at all times during both days of the convention. Showers, deodorant, and breathmints/gum are your friend! This also applies to the convention facilities, such as public restroom conduct. Convention staff reserve the right to take action if they deem any person or their behaviors are a threat to the general convention population's health or wellbeing.
Finally, and most importantly, have fun!
