Code of Conduct for Wayward Cocktails Event

All attendees at #WaywardCocktails are expected to treat other attendees, guests, staff, and the general public with respect.

Please drink responsibly.

Please notify a member of the #WaywardCocktails staff and/or venue security team regarding behavior that is abusive, insulting or intimidating, unsafe or illegal.

The organisers of #WaywardCocktails reserves the right to revoke registrations and/or remove from the premises any individual that violates this Code of Conduct, where such violation will be determined solely by agreement between Jules Wilkinson and Heidi Tandy; if such a situation arises, no refund will be provided.

Please respect Analog bar staff members and the venue security team. #WaywardCocktails team members are volunteers; please remember that it is their event as much as yours. If there is any issue with a staff member’s instructions or information, please inform the check-in desk immediately.

Always ask first, and be respectful.

Do not touch any person without their permission, including people who appear to be physically disabled and people wearing costumes. If you would like to take a picture with another #WaywardCocktails attendee, always ask first, and respect that person’s right to say no. Cosplay is not consent, and consent is not the absence of the word “no.” Physical and verbal harassment, violence, and sexual assault will not be tolerated.

The organisers of #WaywardCocktails want to support a harassment-free experience for all attendees, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, origin, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of any form. Any conduct or action, whether overt or subtle, that creates an offensive or hostile environment is prohibited and will be grounds for removal of the offender from #WaywardCocktails.

No person should be subjected to unsolicited or unwelcome sexual overtones and conduct, whether verbal or physical. Any person who witnesses or experiences harassment is encouraged to let the harasser know that his or her behavior is unwelcome and should immediately report the matter to #WaywardCocktails staff. Even if it would otherwise violate the terms of this Policy, any person who witnesses or experiences harassment is allowed to photograph or film the harasser(s) solely for the purpose of sharing said photo/video with the #WaywardCocktails staff and/or law enforcement.

The organisers of #WaywardCocktails will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement and can provide escorts or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment so that they can feel safe at #WaywardCocktails.

Duplicating badges or tickets is theft and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Do not remove your wristband and give it to someone else. Nametags are not required. Those under 21 will not receive a wristband, but will have their hand stamped to allow admission to #WaywardCocktails.

Please be aware that, due to safety reasons, no handcarts (trolleys), rolling luggage, or oversized strollers (prams) are allowed at #WaywardCocktails Smoking is prohibited on site during #WaywardCocktails and that includes demon smoke.

No real/functional weaponry is permitted at #WaywardCocktails. Simulated or costume weapons are allowed as a part of your costume, subject to prior approval by security and compliance with the SDCC costume weaponry policy, including inspection of said cosplay items at the Weapons Check Desk in Lobby E (location subject to change). Small amounts of salt and holy water can be carried.


What is the refund policy? Tickets are transferable (but please don’t scalp them if we sell out) but there will be no refunds.

Photos and Videos Attendees will be taking photos during #WaywardCocktails - some may be filming, livecasting via Periscope, etc. Videos and photographs may end up on any social media site or website during and after the event. By attending #WaywardCocktails, you agree to having your likeness captured.
