Convention Operations and Answers
General Rules
Weapon and Large Prop Rules
Our convention has a number of rules, policies, and regulations that help make the
convention run smoothly and be as fun as possible for everyone. We encourage
you to read our rules to understand what is expected to help make the best, most
successful, and most fun weekend possible. In addition to these general conduct
policies, we also have rules and guidelines for cosplay, press, exhibitors, and others.
Violations of these rules and responsibilities can result in loss of privileges, up to and
including ejection without refund, legal action, or involvement of the authorities.
All weapons and large props must be inspected and approved by our operations or
security staff at the convention. We will then “peace mark” them, by affixing a ribbon
or mark that indicates we have checked them, and, if necessary “peace bond” them
by using ribbon or ties to keep your weapon from being drawn or used (for example,
by someone who doesn’t know the rules and sneaks up behind you and grabs it).
Attendees must realize that it is a privilege to bring large props and weapons to the
convention, and everyone must take great care to be careful not to damage things,
whack people, or otherwise do anything that seems dangerous. We allow certain
specific prop weapons and large prop items, but anything not listed below is not
allowed. Please understand that due to crowding, space, or safety issues, we may
have to change the rules mid-convention at any time.
Rule Number One: Do not do anything that could make the convention less fun
for other attendees, the hotel, the staff, or for yourself. If it’s dangerous, obnoxious,
uncomfortable, or otherwise, do not do it. It is all of our responsibility to let everyone
have a safe, respectful, and fun weekend.
If it is illegal outside of the convention, it is illegal here. Excessive or underage alcohol use, drug use, harassment, carrying firearms, and many other things are illegal,
and will result in your loss of the privilege to attend our convention. If you have a
safety or security concern, bring it to the convention’s operations center immediately.
In emergencies, dial 911.
If you are hosting a party where alcohol is being served, it is your responsibility as
host to ensure that the age of anyone drinking alcohol is checked. You should also
designate someone not to drink, so that there is a fully competent person present to
deal with any emergencies that might arise.
All attendees must wear their badge at all times throughout the convention, and it
must be presented to convention staff on request at any time. Selling anything of
any kind at the convention is prohibited unless you are a registered exhibitor with
the convention. Pets and animals are not allowed in the convention space or hotel,
unless they are working animals (such as seeing eye dogs). Smoking is not allowed
in our hotel. Photography and video recording of any kind are strictly prohibited during any AMV contest or show screening. These rules apply to all types of attendees,
including exhibitors, press, and other congoers. We may also establish additional
policies covering press, exhibitors, and others.
By attending the convention you understand that convention staff may take video
footage and photographs throughout the convention which may be used in highlights, marketing endeavors, or other media. You consent to be filmed or photographed by staff, approved industry, or media during the entire convention without
compensation to you. Your attendance constitutes a grant of rights to the convention
to reproduce, display, distribute, perform, creative derivitive works of, or otherwise
use any video or pictures that it obtains and in any manner throughout the world in
perpetuity, including online, for broadcast, or other transmissions.
uns: Semi-realistic looking guns are only allowed if they have a very bright, obviG
ous orange tip that shows they are non-working and can be obviously seen from a
distance. Guns that actually work, or have the potential to work, or might be mistaken
by the public as real, are not allowed. Toy or fantasy guns that are “obviously fake”
are allowed.
words: Swords are allowed if they can be tied shut in their sheath, or if they are
S
made of wood or plastic. Swords must never be waved around or wielded, but they
can be used for still posing for photographs.
Bows: Toy, or otherwise wooden or plastic bows can sometimes be okay, but professional or compound bows are not. Equipping an arrow to a bow is absolutely never
acceptable, even for photos.
arge Props: Large props are generally okay, if you are extremely mindful of them.
L
However if we find that we have large crowds, or if they become a problem, we may
ask you to return them to your hotel room or car at any time. We will not store them
for you.
retend Weapons: Anything that is entirely obviously a play/pretend weapon that
P
can not be mistaken for something that is actually a real weapon.
Any weapons or props may be disallowed at any
time at the discretion of management. Please
understand that during times of peak attendance
we may be forced to limit prop size during the
convention.
The convention’s code of conduct and other rules are subject to change at any
time, and without notice, at the discretion of the convention. Violation of the rules
is grounds for immediate loss of your convention badge and suspension from the
convention.
Any form of harassment, bullying, or stalking will not be tolerated at our family-friendly event. Staff have
final say in all matters at the convention, and reserve the right to remove anyone from our event for any
reason.
How can I contact convention staff?
Can I host a party in my room?
Find us in the “Con Ops” operations office, next to the panel area
(check your map). Should you need help, have an emergency, or
anything else, Con Ops is a great resource. For general questions, you can ask any staff member you see.
Room parties are up to you, but we have several reminders. If you
receive repeated noise complaints, the hotel may and will evict
you from your room. If you serve alcohol to minors, the police will
give you a court date. If serving drinks or showing adult material,
check the government-issued IDs of every last person, and don’t
even let anyone underage in your room. Violations of these rules
can result in removal from the convention, revocation of your convention badge, and possibly involvement of the proper authorities.
What do I do in an emergency?
Our operations center should be your first stop if you need immediate and urgent assistance. In especially dangerous or lifethreatening emergency situations, you should call 911 immediately. If you are unable to safely and quickly make it to Con Ops,
please inform the nearest available staff member immediately. If
you witness an emergency or need help, please go to Con Ops
and ensure the situation is resolved.
Who do I talk to about special needs?
Individuals with special needs who need accomodations are
encouraged to attend our programs. If you are an individual with
special needs in need of an accomodation, please see us in Con
Ops. For hotel related special accomodations, please see the
hotel front desk staff.
Where do I submit feedback/suggestions?
Your feedback is extremely important and valuable to us, and
we encourage you to share both your negative and positive
experiences with us, so that we can use your feedback to make
a better convention every year. We collect your email address
when you register so that we can email you our feedback survey,
which is why it’s important that we get a good email address. The
feedback from these submissions are reviewed multiple times
every year, so your comments will be noticed.
Do you have tips for parents?
We encourage you to plan ahead with your children about where
you might meet up if you are seperated in the massive crowds.
Write your phone number on the back of the child’s badge if possible, and keep a description of what they are wearing. Children
13 and under must be attending the convention with a parent or
guardian, and children under 7 must have a guardian with them
at all times. Please read all event descriptions, as some events
may not be suitable for children.
ANIMECON.ORG/STORY
Can I join staff or volunteer?
We would love your help! Stop by our Con Operations room and
inquire about volunteering. Volunteer perks range from getting
pizza with staff to free admission for next year. Staff members
must sign up in advance on our website, and we encourage you
to think about it for next year if you would like to help out. It’s a
great experience, filled with awesome people to meet.
Please remember these attendee tips!
Eat Two Meals Each Day
We have a ConSweet filled with free pop and free rice, but you
can’t live off this stuff, even if you’re Kirby! Getting regular meals,
complete with protein, vitamin-C, and real nutrients, is important
to keep your body from getting worn out. Eat at least two real
meals per day. Consider ordering delivery, or getting some friends
together to go out somewhere.
Sleep Each Night
You need to get at least six hours of sleep each night to fully enjoy
the convention. While staying up is fun and exciting, most events
end by 2am, and you won’t have as much fun if you stay awake
all night. Get some sleep and enjoy the next day rested!
Shower Daily
Whenever you are having a ton of fun, sometimes it can be hard
to remember to stop and think about others. Please, as a courtesy
to other attendees who may be standing behind you in the autograph line, shower every day!

4. If a game is defective or malfunctioning, please
let us know immediately.
5. Convention staff have final say in all judging
and other decisions.
Autograph Reminders
Please do not wait until the last autograph session to get an autograph; you could miss out when we have to limit the number of people per session. Only the
first fifty (50) people for each hour of autographs will be allowed to wait in line for the autograph session. After that amount, we can not let more people wait in
line as the guests will run out of time. You are limited to up to two (2) items signed per autograph session if there is a full line. The size of items may be limited if
required. Some lines for autographs may form very early. If you do not arrive early enough to get a spot in line, be prepared to try a different autograph session.
Guests will only be able to sign official, licensed merchandise - not bootlegs. Our dealers will be held to high standards of copyright compliance.
We reserve the right to choose to implement, or not implement, a lottery system at any time, if more than the maximum number of people are in line before the
session begins. If we are required to implement a lottery, then arriving several hours early may not guarantee an autograph for that session.
Photographs and recordings with the guests are available only with the guests’ permission and are limited by time. Please be kind to respect the awesome
guests we have, and ask nicely. In extremely busy circumstances, photographs may not be allowed, or we may ask that you wait until everyone else is finished.
While we try to have enough sharpies, sometimes we run out or they go missing. If you have something that needs to be autographed in a specific color, then
we recommend bringing that color.

Masquerade Contest
How To Participate
Contest Categories
To participate in Saturday’s mainstage
cosplay contest, please pre-register by
8pm on Friday. Registration ends Friday
night, though it may be open on Saturday morning if enough timeslots are still
available. Complete contest rules are
available, along with signup forms, at the
convention registration desk.
Participants can choose to be judged in either their costume workmanship,
their performance, or both. Each category is divided up into judging categories,
which include Inexperienced, Experienced, Master, and Youth divisions.
Workmanship entries will be judged both on overall appearance and the
quality of the construction of their costume. Performance entries will be judged
on acting, memorizing, performing, and presentation skills. Participants can
choose to participate solo or as part of a group. Complete rules and entry forms
are available in the cosplay office. Please register as early as possible.
Hall Cosplay Workmanship Contest
The hall cosplay contest is a workmanship contest in which you compete on your craftsmanship and costume creation skills.
To compete, you must register in advance (at the Registration Desk), and you will be given a time to be judged on Sunday
morning/afternoon (though some people may be judged immediately if judges are present).
Date Auction & Fantasy Ball
Join us on Friday in the main events room for Dante’s fabulous date auction! Stop by
the ATM, because you’ll have a chance to bid real money on a date to the formal ball. In
addition, We are proud to feature formal dance lessons prior to the ball. Sign up at the
registration desk if you’d like to be auctioned - but we can only accept a limited number
of people due to time limitations.

Date Auction Rules
* We ask those sold to spend at least 15 minutes with their date at the Fantasy Ball, but they do not have to!
* Dates are absolutely not required to do anything that would make them uncomfortable. If you make your date feel uncomfortable in any way or for any reason, your date will be revoked and your money will not be refunded.
* We can not refund your money if your date doesn’t show up to the events after the date auction. It’s important to remember that sometimes people get shy, nervous, or even catch con-plague! Don’t bother them about it either.
Meetups & Photoshoots
* Anybody caught doing something stupid relating to the date auction will be ejected from the convention.
* Please visit the ATM and get out some extra cash before the date auction begins! It’s cash-only, and bidding starts at $5.
We schedule these times and places for meetups for various fandoms. These are a chance to meet other people interested in
the same fandom, and possibly take group photos (we may or may not have an official photographer present). This way it will
be easier to know when to dress up and when you may find other characters from your favorite show, video game, or comic.

Special Guests
LittleKuriboh
Martin Billany, more well known as LittleKuriboh, is the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Abridged series and the godfather of
the abridged age. He has thus far produced no less than 52 episodes, a spinoff, a prequel, a christmas special and
two movies, creating a cultural phenomenon in the anime world. In addition to playing nearly every character in his own
series, he has made cameos in the Death Note, Naruto, Sonic X, Trinity Blood, Pokemon, Fullmetal Alchemist and Sailor
Moon abridged series. With a mission to revitalize interest in the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise and make it more accessible to Joe
Public, LittleKuriboh will continue the original abridged series providing us with priceless entertainment for many years
to come. All-round nice guy and community fan-favourite, he is also associated with TeamFourStar (the group behind
Dragon Ball Z Abridged, for which he also supplies voices) and has made guest appearances on comic-book video
review series Atop the Fourth Wall.
Greg Ayres
Greg Ayres can usually be found rockin’ out somewhere, whether animated or not. From the loud-mouthed Hideki in
Nerima Daikon Brothers, to Koyuki, singing with the the band in Beck:Mongolian Chop Squad, he’s always glad to shake
things up a bit. He is thrilled to be able to add the roles of Uesugi Kenshin in Sengoku Basara, Seikechi Tayama in Oh
Edo Rocket, and Abe in Big Windup to his list of new roles. He can also be head as Son Goku in Saiyuki, Chrono in
Chrono Crusade, Kaoru Hitachiin in Ouran High School Host Club, Yuki in The Wallflower, Leo in Ghost Stories , Satoshi
Hiwatari in DNAngel, Kaworu Nagisa in the Director’s Cut of Neon Genesis Evangelion, Negi Springfield in Negima,
Heihachi in Samurai 7, Jr. in Xenosaga:The Animation, Tsujido in Speed Grapher, Roan in Ragnorok The Animation,
Yamazaki in Welcome to the NHK, Nowy in Glass Fleet, Gau Ban in Shadow Skill, Pope Alessandro XVIII in Trinity Blood,
and a bunch of other titles he’ll probably forget to mention. Funimation has recently announced that Greg will voice the
role of Kouta Tsuchiya in it’s upcoming release of Baka and Test.
Marianne Miller
When he’s not in a booth with headphones on, you can usually find him sporting headphones of another variety behind
“the decks”. A veteran nightclub DJ of many years, Greg has really enjoyed the oppor- tunity of doing something else
that he truly loves at conventions. From packed rooms at anime conventions, to the legendary stage of The Knitting Factory (NYC), Greg never misses an opportunity to share his love of music with anyone who will listen.
Marianne very rarely stops talking, so when she realized that she could make money off of it, she immediately leapt at
the chance to do so. Of course, just talking wasn’t enough to get work in the voiceover industry, so after many years in
theatre (both musical andotherwise), Marianne got her first role in Fullmetal Alchemist and the Conquerer of Shamballa.
Since then she has also received work as Kyosuke in Madoka Magica, Leta, Tula and Lido in Dragon Age: Warden’s
fall, Yuuno Scrya in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha (and Lyrical Nanoha A’s), Yuuta in Squid Girl, Anwar in Avalon code, as
well as many others. One of her biggest projects coming out is a CGI adaptation of The Snow Queen, being released in
theaters this Christmas--she voices Kai, the male lead.
Monica Rial
Lewis “Linkara” Lovhaug
Monica Rial has been working in the anime voice over industry for 13 years. As an actress for ADV Films and Funimation Entertainment has lent her voice to over 250 anime including: Baccano! (Chane), Black Butler (Mei Ren), Certain
Magical Index (Index), E.F. a Tale of Memories (Chihiro), Fairy Tail (Mirajane), Hetalia (Flying Mint Bunny/Belarus), High
School of the Dead (Shizuka), Mass Effect: Paragon Lost (Treeya), Negima (Konoka/Kazumi/Satsuki), One Piece (Tashigi/Carue/Kuina), Ouran Host Club (Renge), Panty and Stocking (Stocking), Princess Jellyfish (Mayaya), Sergeant Frog
(Momoka), Shinchan (Ai), Soul Eater (Tsubaki), Towa No Quan (Tei), Tsubasa (Sakura), Witchblade (Maria) and many
more. She can be heard on the Cartoon Network in Deadman Wonderland (Shiro), Casshern Sins (Ringo), Samurai 7
(Shino) and FMA Brotherhood (May Chang). You can also catch her on Nicktoons and the CW as Bulma in Dragonball Z
Kai. She’s appeared in several video games including Ms. Splosion Man, Comic jumper, and Borderlands 2. Be sure to
come by and say hello!
Lewis “Linkara” Lovhaug has had the misfortune of being cursed to review comic books on the internet. Somehow this
has made him popular on the website That Guy With the Glasses, though many suspect it’s more so people can stare
and laugh at the weirdo. On his show, Atop the Fourth Wall, he regularly contends with the surreal, the stupid, and the
senseless books that the comic industry has produced over the last eighty years. If that wasn’t sad enough, he also has
done a retrospective on Power Rangers (released on the schedule of when a blue moon rises on the 13th hour of the
13th day of the 13th month), actually attempting to grant serious analysis to a series about guys in spandex punching
rubber-suited monsters. It’s best not to make direct eye contact with him.
Sonny Strait
Started back in 2007 as the Brazen Beauty, the Champaign, IL based Airship O’Reilly has since evolved beyond just a
group of kids who wanted to make movies and have fun. Bringing together several slightly insane individuals, O’Reilly
has become a force of entertainment, hosting events in their hometown, making costumes and accessories, and bringing the madness and chaos with them wherever they go.
Airship O’Reilly
Sonny Strait is a prolific voice actor who is best-known for providing the voices of Lt. Maes Hughes in Fullmetal Alchemist, the gentleman thief Lupin the III, and Krillin from Dragon Ball Z. In addition, he is Usopp on One Piece, the original
voice of Toonami’s Tom, and he also does other roles from literally dozens of shows. Outside of voice acting, he has

FEATURED MUSIC GUESTS
YTCracker
Todd Haberkorn
Todd provides voices for several of the most famous anime characters, including North Itality in Hetalia, Ling Yao in
Fullmetal Alchemist, Natsu Dragneel in Fairy Tail, and Hikaru in Ouran High School Host Club, among many others.
Todd Haberkorn is currently a proud member of the Anime community and continues to be its humble servant by way
of english dubbing. Haberkorn received his BFA in acting from Southern Methodist University and continues to work
professionally, primarily in Texas and surrounding states, as an actor, director, producer, and writer. And while the FUNimation Podcast is no more, you may have previously seen him star in it.
YTCracker is a rapper, former cracker, and Internet entrepreneur. YTCracker began producing rap music in 1998 in the
genre that has since become known as nerdcore hip hop. YTCracker is a self-proclaimed “jack of all trades”, also making a name for himself as a professional disc jockey, computer programmer, graphics designer and webmaster.
Catch Todd’s voice as lead roles in Sgt. Frog as Keroro, Suzuka as Yamato, Ghost Hunt as Naru, Claymore as Raki,
Holic as Wataknuki, D. Gray-Man as Allen Walker, Sands of Destruction as Kyrie, Soul Eater as Death the Kid, and some
others he can’t say right now. A few supporting roles include Itsuki in Shuffle, Ichimoruken in Hell Girl, Firo in Baccano!,
Kono in Darker Than Black, and Khoza in One Piece. When not in the booth, Todd is a producer with his company, Out
of the Office Productions.
Doctor Awkward
Dr. Awkward is a Nerdcore rapper with several hit songs and performances at Nerdapalooza and after parties at Comic
Con, Florida’s Nerd Invasion, and Texas’ Comicpalooza. In 2009, Dr. Awkward released his first solo project “Next Gen,”
in which Doc proclaims that he is the future of Nerdcore Hip Hop. The EP was hailed as an instant classic, with hits like
“Geekquilibrium” and “Imposter.” Dr. Awkward release his latest album, “Unlimited” in April 2010, which features an
amazing fusion of Nerdcore, Hip Hop, and R&B.
Spike Spencer
Spike Spencer has voiced hundreds of episodes of Anime including Evangelion, Bleach, Vampire Knight, Durarara!,
Battle Angel, Suikoden, Orphen, Spriggan, Nadesico, Mar, PreTear, Buso Renkin, Gundam, Code Geass 2, and Kekkaishi. His video game credits include Bioshock:Infinite, Saints Row 3, World of Warcraft, Tales of Vesperia, BlazBlue,
Dynasty and Samurai Warriors, Steambot Chronicles, Star Ocean 2, Lunar: Silver Star Harmony, and many others. Spike
has also lent his voice to numerous radio and TV commercials.
StarF
StarF is an amateur hip hop artist from Maple Grove, Minnesota who primarily functions within the nerdcore community. He occasionally yells at a microphone and calls the results music. Once in awhile he likes to go out in public and
shout at groups of people much to their confusion, calling it a performance of this aforementioned music. If you’ve ever
wanted to experience the excitement of some guy who likes to LARP as a rockstar yelling words at you in rapid succession over wonderfully bass-laden instrumentals it would be in your best interest to see StarF perform.
He has also worked as an actor with stars such as Tommy Lee Jones,
Sandra Bullock, Frank Langella, Tia Carrere, and Scott Glenn. Spike is also
an author, including “How to Be A Frickin Genius Voice Actor, Step One,”
“What Happens At The Con, Stays At The Con?,” And “Don’t Kill Your Date
(And Other Cooking Tips)”-(Coming soon). Spike is also a screenwriter with
several projects in various stages. Spike is soon to begin production on his
first feature film that he scripted, “Dwindle Down.” Spike is also an avid sailor,
cook, traveler, and enjoys a good bit of dancing from time to time.
Mattari 2600
Autographs, page 31.
Mattari is a nerdcore hip-hop artist who makes music for the love of music. Mattari is proud to stand by making free music that will always be free. Mattari started making music after listening to a bunch of old-school and nerdcore hip-hop
for years, and realizing a natural talent for decent writing and hip-hop flow. Mattari will perform anywhere or collaborate
with anyone for the love of making music.
