under the Artist ally sales rules is:
You may not sell and/or display Animal Tails, Fantasy Tails, Tails, or Tail like products for use as a tail, or uses other than using that tail as a tail. The majority of these items have become professional products in the Exhibition Hall, and therefore will be limited to the Exhibition Hall, and not allowed in the Artist Alley. The only exception will be unique commissions taken at the convention for delivery after the event.

my question is, does this apply to hand made My Little Pony tails, multi colored arm & leg cuffs? because that is pretty much the bulk of my table.

It applies to the tails, but not the arm and leg cuffs.

Is there a section of the faq listing the consequences of violating one or more of these rules? A full reading of the faq shows references to multiple levels of punishment/warnings (asked to remove offending items, revoke a badge, ban lists), but I couldn't find anything laying out what each penalty is, when it is earned, what appeals processes are, how long bans last, etc. I hate even to be asking this, but I need to prove a point to someone (and I thought I remembered it being in past years' faqs, though I might be wrong).

You are correct, there were details pertaining to penalties, how they can be earned, and how long they last, but we have since moved away from that method of reinforcement. We rarely had people do something that would require such activity, and so we decided that we should focus more on making the event better for the Artists rather than making "bear traps" all over the hall. This year's transition from the FAQ on the forums to the FAQ on the website, was the largest change in how we laid everything out. Plus it helps provide a more community feel rather than a us vs them mentality. :)

So what does happen if a studio breaks the rules? Anything?

We generally follow the rule of three, per violation. If it is a reasonable misunderstanding, then the offense is not considered an offense. Most problems that draw staff attention though, are related to contract violations so each situation needs to be reviewed independently from each other, and depending on the severity, steps can be skipped. So setting anything in "stone" is difficult on a general scale.

First Offense: A Warning.
Second Offense: Final Warning, and Not Welcome Back Next Year.
Third Offense: Removed from the Event.

If the studio/exhibitor accrues three or more First Offenses, all other and following offenses are reviewed at the second offense tier, and move directly to the third offense if any other violation occurs past that of the second tiered offense.

Does that help?

The problem we ran into previous;y, before we moved toward this ^^ was that people would rub right up against the line on purpose. :(
So vagueness kept that from happening. :\

Okay, different question now. Sorry I'm being such a pain so close to the con. :(

Are artists required to have a full, 3-day badge in order to be in the AA?

I know artists are required to have their table staffed for the full 3 days to the best of their ability, but that could be done with a Friday pass, a Saturday pass and a Sunday pass (if someone wanted to be strange). Could a multi-person studio designate one person the Friday person, one for Saturday, one for Sunday?

Yes, an Artist would need to have a full day badge in order to be in the AA.

A studiomate could theoretically just use a one day badge, but that bedge would need to be surrendered after that day or the studio would be billed the remainder that would be due for a full weekend badge. We want to avoid this since it would cause a lot more paperwork and require more people to attend to this process, as well as place the studio in a bind if the studiomate flakes and doesn't turn in their badge. :(

Quick question, we are looking to apply for the 2015 ACen AA, but wanted to know your rule on fleece hats. We sell other items as well and the fleece hats are only a small portion of what we make. Examples at captiveaura.deviantart.com
Thanks

They are allowed, but there are restrictions on wearable items in our rules, under sales.

  • You may not sell and/or display T-Shirts or Large Wearable Materials such as clothing in excess of 50% of your used table/area space, above, below, in front, beside, and behind said table/area space.
  • You may not sell and/or display Animal Tails, Fantasy Tails, Tails, or Tail like products for use as a tail, or uses other than using that tail as a tail. The majority of these items have become professional products in the Exhibition Hall, and therefore will be limited to the Exhibition Hall, and not allowed in the Artist Alley. The only exception will be unique commissions taken at the convention for delivery after the event.

Thanks! Looking forward to applying in December then!! :D
I always worry, since some cons have a lot of restrictions. I appreciate your quick response as well!

I couldn't find this in the rules anywhere, so hoping you might be able to shed some light on it, Philip :)

I'm planning to (assuming there is one) participate in the "12 days of ACen" contest for the free artist alley table and will hence be drawing the ACen mascots. If our entry is not the winner (or even if it is) are we allowed to sell merchandise (thinking buttons in this case) of ACen's mascots? I figured it's just another form of fanart, but want to make sure it's legit with the convention before I start printing buttons.

Thanks!

I will (hopefully) be attending ACen 2015 as an Artist.
You can view my merchandise at my Etsy Shop.
Or visit my DA for more samples of my chibis and prints.
Feel free to message me with any suggestions or comments!

There should be another 12 Days of ACen, with one of the AA tables as a prize this year, pending some catastrophic event. :P
The thing is though, from my understanding in order to enter into the contest, the Artist has to sign over the Artwork to MAPS for our exclusive use. The Artist still retains the right to show it in a portfolio, but for other uses it would fall under MAPS. So while it would fall under the FanArt category, a submission to the contest wouldn't be usable to sell afterward.
That being said, as far as FanArt goes of our Characters, we have had some less than desirable experiences with people in the past :( , so we don't permit FanArt of our Mascots anymore.


I have to talk with our Production Department to be sure on all the details, but that was my understanding of it all.
