so i was on the sakura con site and it said

"If you are under 18 years of age your parent or guardian MUST complete the Parental Consent section of the Registration Form. Due to some of the content presented at this convention, ALL minors must be accompanied by an adult who is attending Sakura-Con. Sorry, NO EXCEPTIONS will be made."

do they actually enforce this? o.o

If you're over twelve, you have to have a guardian in the convention center. If you're twelve and under, you have to be with a parent or guardian at all time. I've heard about some kids that have gotten kicked out because of it.

If you plan on going you will need two things, without either you will be kicked from the con. First you have to find someone who is going to the con who is at least 18. Said person has to agree to be your guardian which means if you screw up they are held responsible. Secondly, you will need a note or form from your parent that states that said person can function as your guardian for the duration of the con, it must be signed.

As The Evil One said you just need to have someone who is 18 or older attend with you. You could ask an older cousin or friends with older siblings that are attending and ask them to be your guardian. Check around with classmates and see if you can tag along with them and use their guardian as yours. The best part of that is they are already going so it's not like you have to pay for another pass. :)

Best of luck to you in finding a guardian for SC!

You don't have to be accompanied by your mom (I don't know if someone has already said this because I'm too lazy to read the thread <.<). I have been a guardian for my friends who were 16 or so, even though I was 18. I've never seen this rule enforced either. They wandered frequently on their own as well, so you don't have to be attached at the hip either.
