About Security

You have a question about security, whether you can bring weapon replicas...? We have the answer!

Posted on

Information available on this page may be updated at any time and until the festival.

Q: Can I bring a katana replica at Japan Expo Sud?

A: No, you can absolutely not, for obvious security reasons. ALL WEAPON REPLICAS ARE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN, whatever they are made of.

Q: If I’ve come along with a replica and want to get it back at the end of the festival, what do I do ?

A: You can leave it at the checkroom in hall 8. Yet we remind you that they are forbidden in all public places, including the festival or public transportation.

Q: What if the replica is part of my costume and I keep it in its case?

A: The same security rules apply to cosplayers and other attendees. ONLY HARMLESS REPLICAS OF FANTASY WEAPONS ARE ALLOWED, ON THE CONDITION THAT THEY BEAR STRICTLY NON RESEMBLANCE WITH A REAL WEAPON and are made of harmless material only, such as foam, cardboard, light wood, or worbla.

As for the cosplayers entering the contests, you’ll find more information by asking your questions to the cosplay team on www.facebook.com/epicassociation.

Q: But I've seen katana and other weapon replicas on sale on several booths?

A: The exhibitors are allowed to sell replicas to people over 18 only, and must provide a closed box to carry them, which must remain closed until you get home.  

If you buy a replica from one of the festival exhibitors and unpack it inside, it will be confiscated by security and destroyed.

Q: Are airsoft replicas allowed?

A: Airsoft weapon replicas are also prohibited.

Q: Are there forbidden costumes?

R: Yes, all military, police, SWAT, or other response team costumes are forbidden.
