"Is my stuff even allowed?" - The YAYs and NEIGHs of GalaCon

Okay, to add to my last question: my boyfriend would like to make a cosplay of this

The image comes from .MOV series but neither of us thinks it creates any grimdark associations for those who haven't seen the series. Will he be allowed to the con with such a costume or absolutely not?

Well... our concern is, since officials (Hasbro employees and licensed companies) will be at the GalaCon, trying to approach the secondary target group, the dissuasive extremes (grimdark, saucy, etc.) and obvious connections to these extremes should be a second banana and better not at the GalaCon. The goal is, that the secondary target group will not only be a footnote in Hasbro's internal reports anymore, but more an acknowledged audience - that in the end also products for the secondary target group, like shirts, comics or fan favorite playsets will be released over here.

I guess a yellow-wearing man with tie and hat will be perfectly fine and neutral. Those into the .MOV series will hopefully notice.

You could also say, it's a genderswapped Fluttershy (-guy) ... and tie/hat for guys is a classic.

So, to keep weatherhoof's explanation and the overall tone in mind - make it a reference, not a shoutout. I think that'd do it.

well, personally, what I would add on: If cosplay is in that way that only people who have watched the series (in this case .mov), would get the joke, and for everyone else, that would look like normal cosplay (for example, also, rainbow dash cosplay with rainbow colored afro wig), would be ok.
But after all, staff's word is final word here.

Question: Black, high-top "military"* boots as parts of a "Darring Dude" cosplay? Is there a problem with those?

*a. k. a. "Bundeswehrstiefel" (see picture)

Since those boots are similar to safety boots - they are ok - as long as they have a soft sole. All need to keep in mind to use a special deodorant for the shoes - because your feet can not "breathe" in them well and sweat a lot.

I have some questions regarding the vendorspace and electric support and possible restrictions.

a) Will there be power outlets for the Vendors? e.g. for lamps, notebooks, fans, cabinets

a1) may the vendors use thier own (certified) power strips or some kind of extension cords ? If not, will they be provided by Galacon, or the venue ?

b) I want to offer engravings for some of my goods, am i allowed to use my powertools ?
- Of course i will use safety gear.

c) I will be offering necklaces/neckrings, am i allowed to adjust them on site?
- they are made from an special wire, so i will need to use various pliers.

WeatherHoof you are the best RD wink
Thanks for the quick reply and for the good news.
I will look out for the venue equipment and will protect it with my bow, axe, shield & sword Happy . Under normal conditions, there is no fire hazard from my equipment. Engraving does not produce that much heat.

According to my list will protecting with "bow, axe, shield & sword" not be possible, because of the risk of injury...
Fists are allowed. XDXDXD

I guess I'll add the questions later as "sth. for vendors"-stuff. I wanted to revise the list too...

How about professional camera equipment?
I have a pro level D-SLR with lenses i'll bring anyways, but inside the con itself?
It's a Nikon D700, and it doesn't have video recording.

And how would it be if i used my large gothic coat with metal details? (depends on weather and temperature of course).

No problem with photo equipment, you won't be the only one. Keep good manners and ask people before photographing them.
Professionals who plan to do news reporting or write for large blogs should get a press ticket though.

Your coat: Should be no problem as long as the metal details cannot cause any harm to visitors. Nothing very pointy or sharp.

Good to know, don't wanna meet up with full frame pro level D-SLR, they're not always allowed at certain events.
But the coat...nah, no pointy, sharpy things on it, i'll leave it be, it will be too hot.
After all, i'm from northern norway, not excactly the warmest place on earth.
