Lioncon General Policies

For Your Fun And Safety

General Conduct Policies:

  1. All federal, state, and local laws and curfews apply. If it's illegal outside the convention, it's DEFINITELY illegal inside the convention.
  2. Follow the instructions of convention staff at all times. Do not bring personal issues to staff, only convention-related issues such as rule violations.
  3. Badges/wristband/visible sign of registration must be visible at all times. No "Ghosting" will be tolerated.
  4. No disruptive or aggressive behavior. This includes but is not limited to: harassment, fighting (even play fighting), and stealing.
  5. Keep walkways clear.
  6. All events, prices, guest and panels subject to change at any time without notice

Weapons Policy:

  • Live-steel is allowed. However, we'll peace-bind (zip-tie) them into the sheath. Absolutely no brandishing of live-steel will be tolerated.
  • Prop guns must be obviously fake, prop weapons and must not be able to fire any projectile.
  • All weapons must be checked by safety and be peace-bound, recognition that the attendee has been informed about the weapons policies.
  • No sparring. Posing for photos is ok, sparring is not.
  • Bows cannot have arrows.

Cosplay Policies:

  • Keep it PG-13. That means no nudity, either. Costume appropriateness is at the discretion of convention staff.
  • If you're concerned about the appropriateness of your costume or a prop, see convention staff for a decision.
  • No sharp objects or attachments on your costume.
