    3. San Diego BJD Convention Etiquette​


      1. All participants must have a paid membership, regardless of age.

      2. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied, at all times, by a parent or guardian with a paid membership: please do not drop off to pick up later. The BJD convention is not a playground, and all participates are expected to behave or will be asked to leave.

      3. Treat other participants with respect. Refrain from foul language, offensive jokes, or ethnic slurs.

      4. Please do not handle another person's doll or property without permission from the owner.

      5. Please keep an eye on your dolls and other items brought with you. The convention is not responsible for loss, damage, or theft to items or person.

      6. Be aware that photos and videos of you, your doll(s), and/or your designs/creations may be taken and posted on public and private websites and boards (i.e.- Yahoo! boards, Den of Angels, or Zone of Zen), as well as information and photos printed in newsprint or magazines.

      7. The convention host reserves the right to refuse or revoke membership and ask that the person leave the premises, no refunds.
