#19: Costume Props Check Desks at WonderCon Anaheim 2017!

WonderCon Anaheim Toucan Tip of the Day

If you’re coming to WonderCon Anaheim in costume and that costume includes any kind of prop or weapon, you’re going to have to have it checked and tagged at one of our Costume Props Check Desks at the event. There are two separate locations this year: in Hall D (where you pick up your lanyard, bag and Program Book if you had your badge mailed to you, or your badge if you registered online after Feb. 27), and in Lobby B/C in front of Exhibit Halls B and C. Both locations are on the ground level of the Anaheim Convention Center. Here’s some things to keep in mind when going to WCA 2017 in costume:

No functional props or weapons are allowed at WonderCon Anaheim.

Simulated or costume props and weapons are allowed as a part of your costume, subject to prior approval by security and compliance with the following:

All costume props must be inspected at the Costume Props Check Desk. There are 2 locations this year: Inside Hall D, and in Lobby B/C (locations are subject to change).

All costume props and weapons must conform to state and federal law.

Projectile costume props and weapons must be rendered inoperable.

Functional (real) arrows must have their tips removed and be bundled and zip-tied to a quiver.

Costume swords must be tied to your costume in such a way that they can’t be drawn.

After each person’s costume props have been checked, they will be tagged by security, and you will be given a wristband to wear to designate that your propss have been checked.

Security will escort you to the security station for inspection if your costume prop is not tagged.

If you do not want to have your costume props inspected or tagged, or if you are not willing to comply with these policies, please do not bring your costume props to WonderCon Anaheim.
