Just a random though that just popped into my head:

When you have that awesome vest on and you're on shift, are there certain clothing restrictions, or do you wear your cosplays under your vests? I never really paid attention too closely, but when I think of IRT I think of people in the army if they were allowed hair dye and piercings.

EDIT: I don't really dig the whole cosplay thing, but I do like to dress up in skirts and 6-inch heels (even though people mistook me for Misa this past ACen). Just wondering.

Over the years I've been to ACen I've seen IRT members in ears and tails sometimes, but not much more than that. I think they have to keep it low-key when on duty.

Cosplay of any kind was banned this year, and I don't see that changing for 2010.

I don't think being on shift for IRT and 6 inch heels are a good combination.

I can also tell you from personal experience those vests hold in heat - which is the last thing you want, especially in cosplay.

As someone stated earlier, cosplaying is forbidden for pretty much everyone except registration. As for headwear, we mostly wear bandana's that are color orientated with the convention's colors, (Orange, Black, Blue). Hat's are required to be worn backwards so they don't obstruct viewing. As for clothes underneath, it's required that you keep it family friendly since it's a family convention. Also, don't wear baggy clothes or stuff with holes in it.

And yes, the vests do trap heat in them. It makes it a lot more pleasurable when we have to go outside during those chilly spring evenings.

Yes. Once you're off shift, you can dress however your little heart desires. (Just make sure it's con appropriate. There were a couple of people I heard this year that had to get pulled over due to very skimpy dress attire.)

That's not entirely true. For registration, we were allowed to cosplay while on shift as well, it just had to be G-rated/family-friendly cosplay, so nothing skimpy/inappropriate.

When I worked Registration I was in cosplay the entire time and it was okay. I can see why IRT is not allowed to cosplay but for a few depts like Reg and EH it should be okay (Just need to make sure it wont mess with your work like cosplaying as Pyramid Head from Silent Hill wouldnt be the best choice)

Exactly. It depends on the department. Ask your DH if cosplay is appropriate. I asked mine and he said as long as we were still able to do our job cosplay was okay. :) Which is good, I feel weird if I'm at a con and not in cosplay.

EHall isn't allowed to cosplay while on shift and the reasoning behind that is that we're dealing with professionals, especially with companies like Nintendo being there this past year, and we want to give an image of professionalism to these companies with isn't very easily obtained while in cosplay. But, it's not like you have to be dressed in a suit and tie either, just something that you might wear to something like a job interview, so please don't be scared of by the fact that there's a dress code.

Huh, I didn't know that! But thats okay too. I feel the same way that KnitChick does about cosplay, but regardless I'd still like to be in the EH. A few years ago I saw staffers working in the EH in cosplay, maybe they were doing something else, but I remember them being in cosplay.

As far as I know Phil implemented the dress code for EHall and Artist Alley when he became DH last year and before that there wasn't one so that would explain why people were cosplaying a few years ago.

I know Phil told me that we could wear normal clothes, but it does not exactly have to be "professional" clothing. The clothing just has to abide by the rules. I asked him if I could wear Tripp pants without the chains and he said it was ok. Also, you could technically cosplay if that character wears normal clothes and that their clothes abide by the dress code. It doesn't hurt to ask the higher ups what you can or cannot wear if you aren't sure what you want to wear will abide by the rules.

Merch booth was able to cosplay as well...I'm horrible at remembering everyone's names (ugh), but I know a handful of us cosplayed at one point or another even while on shift. But the cosplays themselves, as I recall, weren't overly elaborate, and easy to move around in. The only reason I didn't cosplay at all was because I didn't have the time/inclination to pull one together for myself this year~

I was able to cosplay in Panel Programming as long as it doesn't interfere with being able to move and perform your duties.

I'm personally a fan of a dress code for all of management, and some 'guidelines' for regular staff.

As the age group continues to decline, as I have seen the past few years (at cons in general) more and more parents and the like are coming to cons. As staff members, we represent the convention to everyone we come in contact with. I personally do not see a problem with asking people to take off the catears for a few hours, for example.

Of course, we in MP cosplay a lot.

I wouldn't have a problem with guidelines, myself - I actually like to know what guidelines/rules I gotta follow, since I really don't like the idea of stepping on any toes. That being said, though, I don't even I plan on cosplaying while staffing for Acen XIII, since I'm still losing weight, and thus can't accurately make anything - we're talking a loss of 15-20 more pounds for a goal here; and B) I can guarantee that whatever cosplay I want to do would be too elaborate to wear while working. Like, Valkyrie Profile elaborate. ^^;;

Well, the guidelines and rules and such I talk about aren't really bad ones. I think everyone would generally be okay with them.

I just need to talk to Rosa and MAPS about it...which i should do soon. +mental note+

I completely understand with being professional on the job, but theres alot of cosplays that are tastful and family friendly while still looking professional! I think it also brings out the fact that we have ties with the fans and that we arent just all 'high and mighty' people telling you where a certain place is and whatnot. I can see why in some departments it shouldnt be allowed, but for some I think it should be acceptable. But thats just what I think :P

For general staff it's not so much an issue in my mind. I think regular staff should be allowed to be creative and show off their cosplay/s (depending on the department of course.) But I really believe in mandatory dress codes for management (this would include myself.) But without going in to details concerning my idea before i present it, it's not something as ominous as it sounds.

Think of it this way: you're an attendee in need of help for... video gaming. Maybe as a parent and first time con person with your child. And in the room are four staff members, however all four in cosplay. How do you know that one of these people is the ADH or DH? You can't exactly go up and stare at badges. An average person isn't even going to assume the people in cosplay are staff members, likely.

I'm really just a fan of making sure management is more identifiable than they currently are, is all.

^That makes sense as far as management goes! That kind of reminds me of my old job where my manager looked like a punk. He had 2 gauge earrings and tattoos all over himself. HOW he got into management, I have no idea, but no one took him seriously and actually didn't want his help when he could help them because of his appearance. In this world appearances make it or break it sadly.

You, having first-hand knowledge, know that I do not force a dress code on anyone in main. And hopefully I do not seem the kind to do so.

Well, no sandals of course - and something functional.

I have noticed, but I wasn't sure if it was actually allowed, or they were just exceptions, I mean it only seemed as though those with seniority were in cosplay.

I also noticed I appear to be failing to successfully quote anything, and I rather dislike this revision of IPB, glad it was easy to see which post I was responding to.

Click the reply button on the post. Kinda right hand corner of the post.

Yeah I guess it kinda would look that way when I stop and think about it. There was much more cosplay going on last year (with Asuka in like a chef outfit that I never quite did figure out why...)

And Gendo is well...Gendo.

For us in main, cosplay isn't too practical though outside of something like the Masquerade. We run around a lot, we get sweaty moving stuff, which that stuff could easily destroy a cosplay through ripping or other means if you think about it, or get very dirty.

Personally, I've kinda liked how the department as a whole tends to break out cosplay for the Masquerade. This year of course I didn't really see any of alpha, and was confined for the masquerade. :[

With IRT, the most important thing that you have to keep in mind is safety... which is why we have certain rules regarding dress. Question to keep in mind are: Can you run in it if needed? Is it something that would be easy to grab to impede your progress? Is it something that obscures your view or keeps people from recognizing you?

The third question pretty much rules out cosplay... if someone has a problem with a person on IRT, we want them to be able to recognize us. And we need to be able to see everything around us easily and to be able to move quickly.

Also, even though we CAN wear cosplay off shift, we have to keep in mind that anyone on IRT could be called in to deal with an emergency, even off shift. So if someone on IRT is cosplaying off shift, they should still keep things tasteful and something you can easily move in.
