This is an etiquette blog, so that’s all I can give advice on.
Reminder: This is a HETALIA etiquette blog, so please keep questions HETALIA related.
I’ll go ahead and answer this for now.
Don’t suddenly hug people or in general enter their personal space without getting permission first.
If someone has an opinion different from yours, accept it and move on. Don’t give them attitude/harass for it. We’re all entitled to like different things.
On the other hand if someone is harassing you because you don’t share their opinion, ignore them. They’re not worth your time. If they’re going out of their way to continually harass you, inform con staff.
Don’t make fun of people’s cosplays. They worked as hard as they could to do something they love.
Be respectful of everything. The other attendees, con staff, convention center and hotel staff, guests, vendors, artists AND the locals. It’s important for everyone to have a good time. This means watch what you say, don’t make inappropriate gestures, don’t leave trash, don’t destroy property and be polite.
In general be a nice/decent person and you should be fine.
If anyone else has some tips to share, please feel free to add.
