Hi there!

I'll be cosplaying Chihiro Fujisaki this year, so I was wondering if carrying around an old notebook would be alright?
It no longer works (can't turn on), so it would be merely prop-based, and considering the size of notebooks it shouldn't get in the way.

I know your rules based on electronics, but I wasn't sure about this specific case since I won't be sharing any media on it. :)

Going through the Bags, Props & Consumables Rules:
Do not use electronic devices to show licensed media content to other people.

Going by this quote, it should not be a problem carrying one around as a prop.

Any stricter would also restrict smartphones and tablet devices from being carried at the convention.

Thank you very much for your quick reply! That's wonderful news!

Do remember that laptops are pretty heavy for their size (and a bit awkwardly shaped), so best to carry it in a (messenger)bag most of the time.
(I wouldn't be surprised if a prop sword would be easier to carry around in your hands than a laptop. ;) )

I'm going to be cosplaying Akame from Akame ga Kill, and I have a wooden prop katana (Teigu Murasame is the name of her katana), around 107 cm long, with sheath. Is it ok to have this on me in the designated areas such as the photo areas to pose with it? I am not planning on unsheathing it, and I will be carring it in my hand or on my back (but in a bag while travelling)
I'm sorry if this is a question you get repeatedly, or if the answer is very obvious, but I wanted to check in with you to be sure..

Hello both,

The general rules regarding props apllies to both of these.
Which means that if they are carried responsibly and don't pose a direct risk to yourself and fellow visitors they may be carried in the areas where props are allowed.

Hello! :)

I better want to be safe than sorry. So I want to know if it's allowed to carry this prop on/in the festival grounds, since I've never been there before and I don't know it this weapon looks fake enough or not.

Thanks!

Hello Dschill,

While we do admire the handiwork, I'm afraid we cannot allow you to openly walk around with this prop inside the venue as it does have too much of a resemblance to an actual firearm from a moderate distance.
