Nope! Cosplay as whatever character you want or don’t cosplay at all. The choice is yours! If you do cosplay just be sure to adhere to our General Costume Rules.
- Can I bring real weapons?
Please see our position on weapons in our Convention Policy
- What happens if I lose my ticket or can no longer attend the expo?
Unfortunately all tickets are non-refundable. Once your ticket has been bought, or given to you in the case of VVIP Passes, it is at your risk. VVIP pass holders MAY be able to enter the convention if they lose their passes, since we will have your information on hand, however since we cannot constantly check our databases at every entry point (workshops,gala,afterparty) We cannot guarantee entry at these points. Long story short, do not lose your passes or tickets or you’re gonna have a bad time.
In the event we may have to reschedule the expo due to any unforeseen circumstance/act of God etc, tickets purchased will be valid for the rescheduled event.
- How do I apply for a Press Pass?
Please head over to the Applications section of our website and fill out the Press Pass Application Form! You will be notified of your acceptance or rejection by email closer to the date of the convention. Please note however that our Press passes do not allow you access to our Nightlife attractions.
- What happens if I break the rules or misbehave at the Expo?
Please read our Convention Policy We reserve the right to revoke or suspend passes to the event and in some cases ban individuals from all our future events. Moral of the story here is, play nice! E.g Deadpool cosplayers please remember that you aren’t really Deadpool.
