If you’re coming to Gibraltar International Comic Con 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.
Here are some things to keep in mind when going to GiCC 2018 in costume:
No functional props or weapons are allowed at Gibraltar International comic con.
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.
All costume props and weapons must conform to the law of both Gibraltar and of the EU.
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 props 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 Gibraltar International Comic Con.
