Fangaea Con Rules and Regulations


We at Fangaea want everyone to have fun.  But to make sure everyone has fun, we need to have some rules and regulations. That might seem like a downer, but it’s actually a good thing.  These rules and regulations might change without notice, but any change is to keep a fun and safe environment.

Cosplay is encouraged! However, nudity or partial nudity will not be allowed, as this is a family-friendly event. No hate speech or symbols will be allowed as a part of your costume. See the weapons and props link below for more details on that.
