      If you successfully redeemed your code for an autograph session, please make sure you arrive in the timeframe specified in the RTX app. The sessions will begin and end promptly. We will only admit attendees who have successfully signed up for the session. Please make sure you either print the confirmation (with barcode) OR be able to provide it on your phone. We WILL be scanning all attendees into each autograph session.


      *There is no need to arrive early since this is a ticketed event only. We recommend arriving 5-10 minutes prior (at most), and you can arrive after the session has begun.



      8) RTX MERCH EXCLUSIVES

      We have an awesome line of exclusive merch you can only get at RTX Austin! Check it out and make your friends jealous!

      RTX Store in the Exhibit Hall:

      • 17 exclusive items available ONLY at the RTX Exhibit Hall Store during RTX weekend.

      • Over 60 brand new items making their debut at RTX Austin.  RTX Attendees are getting the chance to buy these before anyone else as these items will then become available through the Rooster Teeth site post-convention.

      The Coop Pop-Up Shop (located across the street from the ACC at The Sunset Room):

      • 65 exclusive items available ONLY at The Coop during RTX weekend.

      • All items were created through collaborations with famous artists outside of RT!



      9) WEAPONS POLICY

      You’re never too old to play dress up. Just be smart about it. Here are a few straightforward guidelines to follow so everyone will be dressed to impress – and safe!


      No guns, swords, knives, clubs, or other weapons that may cause harm, including anything metal or sharp. Please be aware that if your cosplay includes large props, and/or a fake/simulated weapon, it will be subject to examination at the Austin Convention Center Weapons Check located in the Solar Atrium. We will also have metal detector checkpoints to enter the ACC, so please bear with us if lines are little longer. We want everyone to stay safe and happy during RTX Austin weekend!



      10) WEATHER

      Austin in the summer is HOT, y’all! And I mean HOT… and sweaty. Make sure to wear deodorant, carry around water, and wear the most comfortable shoes you own. This is not only for your comfort but the comfort of all attendees! No one wants a smelly nelly.



      Well, that’s about it! If you have any questions or comments, the fastest way to get in touch is via the RTXEvent Twitter account. We love hearing from you all!

      how does it feel having multiple people looking up to you

      Answered: May 3, 2018

      I'm not sure if that is possible seeing as I am so short! :) But seriously do people look up to me? If that is the case then if feels awesome! I would say that growing up it would have been nice to know there were other nerdy gaymers out there, so if I can represent an underserved portion of our community I am more than proud to do so! Thanks for the question! xoxo

      Will the system for Medical Bands ever be revamped?I saw quite a few people with them at RTX London who flat out admitted that they didn't need them and just wanted better seats. Apply for them maybe?

      Answered: Feb 13, 2018

      We are considering it. We don't want people to take advantage, but also don't want to turn anyone in need away. It is being discussed. Thanks for the feedback!

      Y'all. I like camping. I went this past weekend for my friend's birthday and we made fire, cooked sausages, shot guns (I was really good at shooting those disks) and drank some beverages. We played dice and card games for a buck a pop, and I stayed in for 2 hours on only 5 dollars. It was a rad time. I like camping.

    Too many to count. When I was an intern one of my first jobs was to go to a sex store and buy a dildo. That was fun. Also testing out the bubble costume for an RT Life was tons of fun. I was good at bubble costume. I did flips and stuff. 

    what is your job at RT?
