All badges are picked up at the door. We do not mail badges.
The Fine Print:
Your Kawa Kon registration does NOT include a hotel room or food. Badges are required to enter all convention rooms and events EXCEPT the vendor room at the discretion of vendor room security.
Kawa Kon reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone for any reason or to revoke the badge of any attendee for any reason. The St. Louis Airport Marriott reserves the right to eject anyone from the hotel premises for underage drinking, illicit drug use, excessive rowdiness, and other reasons that inconvenience hotel guests.
Unauthorized solicitiation (including signage, announcements, fliers, or other forms of solicitation not cleared by the convention staff or the hotel staff) is not permitted at the Marriott and may result in being ejected from the premises.
All children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Children under 13 found without an adult may be taken to the hotel front desk to call a parent or guardian. Kawa Kon is not a baby-sitting service.
Cosplay for the discount can be an anime costume, science fiction costume, fantasy costume, traditional dress of a specific culture, or any other garb that would be considered a "costume" on the street. Japanese street styles (such as Gothic Lolita or Ganguro) count as cosplay. If your character wears everyday clothing, please bring a reference picture, or your costume may not be accepted.
Kawa Kon badges are non-refundable, but pre-registered badges are transferable. If you plan to transfer your pre-registered badge to someone else, you must send the name and birthdate of the person it is being transfered to from the email address you used to register to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 24.
Replacing lost or heavily damaged badges requires a $10 replacement fee and answering specific questions from your registration form.
