COSPLAY FAQS

WHAT IS YOUR COSPLAY WEAPONS POLICY?

Monopoly Events adopts a common-sense approach to items allowed into the venue for use as cosplay weaponry. Obviously, anything that would be illegal to carry in public is forbidden. We would ask that you are considerate about fellow customers when deciding on cosplay weapons to bring with you.

 

Our host venue will carry out security checks on entry and may confiscate any items that they consider to be dangerous. If in doubt we recommend you contact ICC Wales directly about what they will and won’t allow into the venue.

WHAT IS YOUR COSPLAY PHOTO POLICY?

Monopoly Events adopt a strict consent policy with anyone wishing to take a photo with a cosplayer. No customer can take a picture of someone in cosplay whether they are alone, posing with the cosplayer, a selfie, or a professional photo for any digital or print usage without permission. Our security team reserve the right to remove anyone who we deem to be harassing or behaving inappropriately towards other attendees.

 

If you have a picture taken with a cosplayer, you may not initiate any physical contact without permission. Even a hug or arm around the shoulder must be consented. If you are unsure, then stick to a simple NO contact rule.

 

BANNED ITEMS

Metal blades - Sharp or blunt e.g. swords, axes & knives.

Bats - Wooden or metal, including baseball bats.

Guns – Realistic looking handguns, rifles, or any other artillery.

Crossbows and strung bows capable of firing and sharp-tipped arrows.

Gas canisters made from metal or plastic of any kind.

Nails protruding, or any other sharp items protruding from items or costumes.

Laser pointers, regardless of being part of a costume or prop.

Any other item that is deemed illegal to carry in the UK.

 

We do not offer any exceptions to our rules regardless of memberships, licenses, etc. Bring your items at your own risk, however, Police are within their rights to destroy any confiscated items without consultation.

 

ALLOWED ITEMS

Unrealistic guns and toy guns such as Phasers and plasma guns.

Imitation firearms such as airsoft guns and BB guns are allowed as long as they have the brightly coloured tip or a muzzle fitted.

Bows and crossbows are allowed if unstrung or which are props which cannot be operated or fired.

Slings and catapults are allowed however no ammunition may be carried and will be confiscated if found.

 

Once again please bring items at your own risk, if staff and security deem them to be a risk to the event and its attendees, confiscation, and ejection from the event is highly likely.
