FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 🤔
SizeCon is a 2-day adult, community event and celebration for size fans worldwide! 🥳
Size was originally coined and created as an inclusive label by the NYC Macro/Micro meetup group for Macrophiles and Microphiles. When we began our SizeCon event, Size evolved into an umbrella term that better reflected the size community as a whole, after all, we are comprised of individuals who fly more than one flag: we are 🏳️🌈 LGBTQ, furries, lovers of expansion and inflation, transformation, BDSM, and so much more. So if you have any interest in size-related things, you’re definitely welcome to come and nerd out with us! 🤓🤤
SizeCon is an adult event, so people under 18 years of age are NOT allowed to attend, even if accompanied by an adult. The only exceptions to this rule are nursing infants and certified service animals. We do not wish to turn any guests away, so please be respectful of our rule; Exceptions for infants are in place to help new Mothers attend while still being available for their newborn baby who needs to be fed regularly - this is not an invitation for children over a year old. Exceptions for service animals are in place to help those suffering with illnesses, PTSD or other serious health issues or disability in which they rely on their service animal - this is not an invitation to bring your pet because you’re feeling nervous. Please respect our rules so that we can keep SizeCon accessible.
SizeCon first and foremost is an event that caters to those who have erotic related fantasies that may include Giants/tinies, expansion, inflation, muscle growth, shrinking/growing and other kinks. It will ALWAYS be an adult related event, thus we will never allow guests under 18 years old to attend. As long as the size content displayed is legal, explicit photos, drawings, etc will be allowed to be displayed by vendors and at (NSFW - NotSafeForWork) labeled panels and events. SizeCon is our pride event, so we will not censor or shame our talented artists and actors into covering up their work. If NSFW content is upsetting or triggering to you in anyway, please read our pamphlet carefully which will be handed to you when you pick up your badge at the event. In the pamphlet we will label all NSFW panels and events. As we’ve done since year one, we will also provide specially marked badges for those who do not want to engage in explicit conversations. Starting this February, we will also mark NSFW vendors on our floor map.
WHAT’s the dress code like? 🦹♂️🦸♀️👨🎤🧟♂️
Most SizeCon guests typically wear casual clothing, jeans, t-shirts and comfortable shoes - remember you will be on your feet a lot! However, guests are free to dress however they’d like, including sexy and/or kink related outfits, assuming it’s not any more revealing than what you’d typically see at the beach. Costuming is allowed and even encouraged (especially if it’s sized related!), whether that be a cosplay of your favorite character or your fiercest looking Drag, we’re here to celebrate, so go on and express yourself! Guests looking for inspiration are more than welcome to dress to our SizeCon 2020 theme: Swingers and Flappers. Please note, guests may wear face-concealing masks, makeup, etc, as long as they are not too upsetting (i.e. Jason mask, Ski mask, grotesque prosthetics, etc). 👺
Absolutely! As long as they stick to our rules, any friend of a size-lover is a friend of ours. ❤
While the odds of bumping into someone that you already know outside the community at Size Con are astronomically low, if you happened to bump into someone you did know, that's a good thing: you found a fellow Size-Lover! High-five! 🙌
When you arrive at the event, there will be a check-in booth where we will hand you your badge, a pamphlet and give you a brief verbal rundown of our rules. Using your pamphlet or our Size Con WebApp on your smartphone, you can plan out your day with fun and exciting events, socials, panels, and activities! There's always something new and exciting happening every single hour at Size Con! Some events and panels are entertaining and fun, others can be educational and offer advice and support; there’s a lot to see, learn and do! With hundreds of guests of all (adult) ages and backgrounds attending SizeCon every year from around the country and even the world, there will be no short of fellow size fans there for you to geek out with! 🤩
Privacy is extremely important for Size Con guests. Many of our staff, as well as many of our attendees hold careers in the public eye - Doctors, Teachers, etc. Because of that, we have a strict photo and video policy at the event. Any public photos of Size Con were taken by our Official Size Con photographer with explicit permission of all those in the photo. Again, we also allow and encourage attendees to Cosplay, so if you’re still worried, you can always disguise yourself. While we collect names of guests to verify with their ID that they are over 18, we do not keep this list, nor would we ever release such a list - remember, we'd be on it too! 😜
Don’t worry, this is the fourth time we've run SizeCon, and every year, without fail, we get a new influx of first-timers. We promise, you won’t be the only newbie! Luckily, for those nervous about finding a friend to hang out with, you can start making connections ahead of the convention by joining our official Discord Chat.
SizeCon is purely run by dedicated volunteers; we are non-profit. Unfortunately, because of our volunteers not being as available this year to to commit to the event, there was no SizeCon 2019!😭 We implore you all to not take this event for granted - if you’ve been wanting to attend SizeCon, now is the time!! Remember a few years ago, an event like this was inconceivable! We are still a fairly young offline Size Community and can’t survive without the participation of other valid size fans like yourself! If you ever doubt your place at SizeCon, don’t ever forget, you’re:
Some Giantess fans prefer not to see Giant content. Some Expansion fans prefer to enjoy their content without a the subject being 80 feet tall. Some fans prefer SFW content over NSFW content. The list goes on...Unfortunately, we can't make everyone happy in this respect. We have a lot of overlap in fantasies and interests, and being that our communities have lived solely online, it only made sense for all of us to join forces! Remember, a few years ago, an event like this was unthinkable and finding reliable volunteers are still somewhat hard to come by.
However, just like at a typical Fan Event/Convention, nothing at Size Con is mandatory or forced upon you. You do not have to attend certain events or panels outside of your interest. You do not have to look at any artwork you do not want to look at. All Panels and Booths with NSFW content will be clearly marked on the physical pamphlet provided to you at Size Con. Descriptions for all these events and panels will also be outlined in the pamphlet - as always, participation is optional!
This year, and hopefully for years to come, we’ll be hosting our event at the Radisson Hotel in Piscataway-Somerset New Jersey, where rooms for our event start at $118. For more information on how to get our SizeCon reservation rate, please click here. Available as a special just for our guests, is the SizeCon meal plan! It’s an all-day buffet pass for Saturday and Sunday, all you can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner for $36 a day. For those not interested in our meal plan, the Radisson has a full service bar that serves a-la-carte options of typical American fare. Menus will be available closer to the date - vegan and gluten free options are available!
Come join us on our Official Size Con Room-Share Channel on Discord, where you look for an event roommate, or post an ad for an onsite hotel room you've already booked and wanting to split. We encourage you to only posts listings for our host venue, the Radisson Hotel Piscataway-Somerset so that we stay as close to each other as possible. Feel free to arrange other cost splitting expenses with your Size Con roomie, like transportation, food, etc. Please stay tuned for the SizeCon forum, which will be another avenue where guests can find roommates!
SizeCon was dreamed up by the New York City Macro-Micro Meetup Group, founded by community artist: Jitensha. These Meetups have been an incredible experience for the local size community, being able to speak and interact with people about a side of ourselves that stays mostly hidden - it's been truly life-changing! We nerd out about our favorite Sabrina episode, discuss the finer points of the square-cube law, and help members come out to significant others, oftentimes over food and drinks in beautiful Central Park. We wanted to bring that experience to as many people as possible, and so we began planning our first ever event back in 2016. Being a queer, kinky, nerdy, Latina, our founder Jitensha has always pushed to make SizeCon as inclusive as possible, whilst working together with volunteers to provide an unforgettable, validating community experience in a fan-convention like setting. Every year we work to improve this experience, and every year we create more relationships and long-lasting friendships.❤
