Phoenix Comicon Bans Cosplay Prop Weapons Following Incident

Recommended Posts

I haven't heard if this is going to be universal with all conventions or if this is just for an isolated convention, Cosplayers should be aware that the Phoenix Comicon has banned all prop weapons from their convention. Apparently, someone was arrested for showing up at the convention with several weapons and that it's rumored he was there to inflict serious harm on an actor. The organizers for Phoenix Comicon have elected to ban all prop weapons and that attendees will not be allowed entrance into the convention. Additionally, prop weapons that are available for purchase at the convention will not be allowed to be opened at the event and that they must remain in their original packaging containers.

 

So far, there's nothing to indicate if this policy will be adapted for other anime or comicon events but that I'll be keeping tabs on this. If anyone has any additional information, feel free to share it with the rest of us here.
