12 recommendations for Event Organisers on how to respectfully treat your Cosplay Guest(s)

To welcome the 2016 new year, here’s an out-of-the-ordinary post; meant especially for cosplay event organisers; as well as other members of the cosplay community to read, absorb, understand and debate.

That’s right, this is our perspective on how cosplay guests should be treated with respect by event organisers ^.^

1) Invite them way in advance before your event happens. Months! Not weeks!

People need sufficient time to research on your event and the information you’ve offered about it; to prepare costumes for each event day; to negotiate and prepare merchandise; be it photoshooting, post-processing, printing or packing.

2) Let your guests know precisely what they have to do for the event.

Come out with detailed schedules for them before they begin flying over to your country/city; the sooner the better.

Avoid last-minute changes to the schedule where possible. Where needed, seek out the guests’ approval or consult with them with full respect.
If you mess up your scheduling, let the guests know about your mistake(s) as soon as possible and discuss how you’d like to resolve it; and be sincere in your apology.

The MC that works with the guests is vital; get someone knowledgeable who doesn’t make it awkward for the guests on-stage, who can get the crowd roused up.

3) Plan a reasonable schedule of activity to resting time for your guests.
Even Saitama needs to sleep.

Take note, when in costume, ‘rest time’ in your activity schedule still reduces their HP due to the makeup and costume.

Don’t plan a packed morning to night schedule.

4) Travel arrangements.

Settle the visa and immigration issues properly, with lawyer guidance where possible.

Make sure their luggage limit is sufficient to bring necessities and costumes over and back home. Always remember. Some fans can be overly enthusiastic and present gifts such as gigantic Gundam kits. (Never forget.)

Let your guests know the plane details properly, way in advance, not the week of their trip.

Give the guests proper guidance on where to go upon arrival in the terminal. Arrive in time, taking traffic jams into account, so your guest won’t have to wander around the airport and be forced into bribing airport guards.

Pick a suitably large transportation vehicle so they won’t have to squeeze.

Plan the transportation so guests won’t have to wait for hours for other guests to arrive so that they can move off together.

Make sure your driver is someone trustworthy, someone who won’t get lost and be able to respond to communication from you. (Of course, not while he’s driving halfway!)

Account for traffic jams, especially in packed cities. Always have buffer times.

Take full responsibility for your guest’s travels, do not abandon them at the airport, send them all the way to walk into the departure gate restricted area, not just drop them off at check-in. Do not give your guests money to take their own accommodation back from their accommodation to the airport.

Apply proper performance/artist visas for your guests, do not get them sent into jail or be forced to pay heavy bribes/fines.

5) Accommodation, accommodation, accommodation.

Pick a suitable place for them to stay; don’t make the location too easy for fans to guess, nor should information on their hotel/residence leak out.

Be wise, don’t select a location that is out-of-the-way from both venue and airport.

The hotel shouldn’t look like it hosts ghosts, should have decent food, no bugs, great lighting and a full body mirror where possible for costume preparation. Comfortable beds are a must. Highly recommended to have hair dryer, ironing board and strong wifi.

Security, no fans should be able to reach the doors to stalk or knock (Why would the fans even know their room? Really? Hmm.)

Don’t select a strange place where the guests have to stay with, for example, contestants for a competition they are judges for or other strange people that should not be there; in the same room or just adjacent, or where bathrooms are shared.
Guests are guests, contestants are contestants, treat guests with the status that you’re conferring them with for the event, properly.

After guests have been confirmed, find out if they are comfortable in sharing a hotel room before putting two of them together, it might be really awkward.

6) Freedom.

Afford your guests as much freedom as you can, while letting them know that it is their responsibility to stay sufficiently rested and arrive punctually for your planned event activities, of course.

It is your duty to let the guests know, if they have friends who wish to meet up or shoot with you, the guests should let you know in advance so you’ll know where they’ll be and what they’re doing. But be lenient, you shouldn’t be over-controlling on the non-event time of the guests.

If you plan for additional activities outside of the event, such as guiding the guests around your city attractions or going for dinner, let the guests know in advance, as per point 2 above regarding schedule.

Allow the guests to roam around the event venue during their free time if they wish to do so; with sufficient protection/crowd control for them.

7) Event fees, compensation and merchandise sales.

Be fair in event rates for the guests, do not treat them as your cheap event PR or marketing labour for your sponsors. Negotiate terms fairly with them, understand that eventually they’ll find out what each other’s rates are so just treat all guests with respect in their terms.

Provide payment on a timely manner; have some financial buffer for potential compensation issues. Be properly accountable for the guest’s merchandise and stock count at the end of the day.

Do not overcharge the fans for meeting the guests.

Educate the booth sales personnel sufficiently, enforce the proper rules so that there isn’t any cases of over-obsessive fans hogging the merchandise or autograph time period of the guest.

8) Welfare, medical issues.

Cookie for you if you get this.

Internet cookie for you if you get this ref!

Ensure your appointed guest helper is always on the lookout for their physical welfare when interacting with fans, as well as their health, dehydration issues, etc.

Provide sufficient food and water backstage, at judging tables, etc.

Find out individual food allergies and preferences for each guest; as well as their medical issues and have standby medical assistance just in case.

Edit: (Added on request) Please ensure your guests get the opportunity to eat. Some may wonder if its a culture thing to skip breakfast in your country; but usually it isn’t, so please remember to feed your guests!
Let them enjoy the glory of food culture in your state; be a nice host.
Don’t starve them until they have to take the initiative to ask for a natural meal, its something quite embarassing, honestly.
And no, taking them to the big M frequently isn’t really nice, either. Not everyone likes fast food; some may be on diets; its always good to have a quick discussion with them if you’re unsure about what food they may like.

Have a private, well-ventilated and sufficiently large resting area for the guests; segregated into gender where necessary, with a good movement plan to take the guests rapidly from event locations to the resting area.
Oh, WiFi at the resting area’s great too.

9) Helper proficiency.
Appointed personal helper to guest. Make sure the helper actually can communicate with a common language confidently with the guest!

Let the helper communicate with the guest in advance to make prior arrangements before the trip.

The helper must know what the guest needs help with, the full schedule of the guest in advance; as well as to be able to call out to security for assistance in crowd control and security issues.

On top of all, do ensure the helper is trustworthy, treats the guest with respect at all times, will not disappear halfway, will not actively seek to solicit ate the guest for photos/autographs/favors for themselves or their friends.

10) Do not hold your guests accountable for the behaviour of their fans, or demand your guest to apologise on behalf of them to you.

11) Marketing and PR.

Provide sufficient exposure for your guests before the event; and certainly not at their expense.

Be sure your helpers are prepared to shield the guest from sensitive media queries or overenthusiastic photographers.

12) Always be polite, respectful and professional in your communication with or about the guest.

Do not speak badly about them online, things have a way of getting to the source.

Do not hold grudges, do not get the guest arrested and jailed/deported just because she comes for your competitor’s event.

If the guest is unable to make it for the event for a reasonable cause, be gracious about it.

Be courteous, respectful and nice to the cosplayers, your staff, the fans, everyone! Enjoy the event together; have a great event!
