Some Heads Up... (please read)

There are a couple of things that happened in 2013 that people should take into account when going to ALA 2014.

1. SEAL YOUR BODY PAINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALA ALMOST banned Homestuck cosplays
because a lot of the cosplayers did not seal their body paint, causing the hotel hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in damages. The organization had to pay the costs to clean or repair. The only reason why it was not banned was because a couple of people I know convinced the director that it wasn't fair to do that. BUT that does not mean he will not ultimately ban the fandom, or body paint in general.

So please seal your body paint! If you don't know how to, I provided a link on how to properly do it.


2. On Nov. 1, there was a shooting at LAX that killed one person and wounded a few others. Because ALA happens at the LAX Marriott, literally less than a mile from LAX, please be contentious of the props you are bringing with you. ALA may still abide by their weapons policy, but hotel staff and security may be extra strict next year given the circumstances of November. Please abide by the hotel staff's request if they ask you to put away a prop. The last thing we want is the con to be shut down because someone didn't obey the staff's request. If you have a problem, please ask the con staff to mediate before you disobey the hotel.
Remember, they are RENTING the space to us, and at any time they can kick us out.

Thank you, and remember we're all here to have fun!
