FAQ: Can I attend in Cosplay attire?

Yes, Cosplay costumes are welcome at Play. Nonetheless, due to current regulations, authorities must be able to identify all visitors at all times. Below are the specific guidelines for cosplayers attending Play:





In accordance with Article 5 of Law no. 152 dated 22 May 1975, the wearing of protective helmets or any headgear that obscures the face and makes visitor identification challenging is strictly prohibited within the exhibition centre without a valid reason.



The introduction of actual cutting weapons or similar sharp tools, firearms, or any items that could pose a danger, including explosives, fireworks, and smoke bombs, into the exhibition centre is strictly forbidden. Security personnel will inspect all accessories, and those deemed hazardous may be confiscated or held for the duration of the event.



All prop or replica firearms must feature an Orange Tip: a red or orange marker at least 3 cm long on the barrel. If the barrel cannot accommodate an Orange Tip, a similarly sized brightly coloured mark on the rear of the weapon must be visible at all times.



Visitors are forbidden from carrying prop or replica bladed weapons that have sharp points or cutting edges. Such prop/ replica weapons (swords, katanas, knives, kunai, scythes and the like) must be purely ornamental: do not use them to stage fighting of any kind.

Do not perform or stage shows with metal swords or other metal blades of any kind, even if unsharpened, as they could break and harm third parties or the performer. Such metal replicas, if allowed at all by security personnel, must be wrapped, sheathed, or otherwise kept in complete safety at all times when outside the designated area of use.

You are allowed to unsheathe a replica weapon for inspection by security staff if they are an important part of the cosplay you are wearing.



Carrying prop or replica bladed weapons with sharp points or cutting edges is not allowed. Props such as swords, katanas, knives, kunai, scythes, etc., must be strictly decorative: do not use them for staged combat of any kind.

Metal swords or blades, even if unsharpened, must not be used for performances, as they pose a breakage and injury risk towards performers and third parties. Security may allow metal replicas if they are safely contained or sheathed when not in use.

You are allowed to unsheathe your replica weapon to submit it to inspection by security personnel, if it is an important part of the cosplay you are wearing.



You may freely carry non-firearm ranged weapons, but you are not allowed to carry any form of ammunition or projectiles.
