All photographers, commercial and private, should refrain from taking secret photos or photos of cosplayers in compromised positions and should not take photos with the intent of commercialization without consent of the subject. Cosplayers love to have their photos taken, so just be polite and ask! Photographers may be asked to leave if they make other uncomfortable with their actions.

Weapons Policy
In order to ensure everyone who visits PopCon is safe, we have instituted the following weapons policy.

For more detailed information, check here: PopCon Weapon Policy

  • All weapons must be inspected by a member of our security staff prior to entry.
  • Actual firearms of any sort are not allowed.
  • Simulated weapons for the purpose of cosplay will be allowed, but must be non-firing and must be inspected by a member of the security team.
  • Bladed weapons must be affixed to their sheaths so that they can not be removed inside the convention hall.
  • If you are found with an untagged weapon inside the show, you will be escorted to security to have your weapon inspected. Repeat violators may be subject to dismissal from the convention without refund.
  • If you have a weapon that does not pass inspection, you will not be allowed to enter the show. If you are unsure whether or not your weapon will pass security, it is best to leave it home.

WELL, WELL, WELL… Looks like we have a rule-breaker!
