Metal props (replica guns, swords, knives, etc.) are strictly not allowed. Plastic props are typically allowed.
Bows (including crossbows), and slingshots are to be unstrung. Nerf guns and other foam bullet-type toys are not to be loaded.
The final decision on whether a prop is allowed inside FAN EXPO Vancouver rests with the Security and the Vancouver Police. There are NO refunds given if you are turned away for not complying with our policies.
COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT If you would like to take a picture with/of another FAN EXPO Vancouver attendee, always ask first and respect that person's right to say no.
When at FAN EXPO Vancouver, please be respectful and kind to each other.
