Puchi-con encourages all of our guests to come in and be creative with their cosplays. We want everyone to be safe and enjoy the convention. To do so, in accordance with the local, state, and federal safety and regulations, there are some restrictions as to what can be worn and what can be brought to the con. Please be mindful and respectful to everyone. This con is open to everyone and body shaming or being inappropriate to other guests or con-goers will not be tolerated. Any minor infractions of the rules will result in being asked to be changed. Any major or repeated infractions to the rules will result in you forfeiting your badge and expulsion from Puchi-Con with no refunds.
