Plan Accordingly: The Spokane Convention Center Requires All Attendees to Pass through Security Checkpoint at the Main Entrance entailing Bag Check, Metal Detector & Peace Bonding before entering.
All Cosplayers are Required to stop by our "Weapons Check" aka "Peace Bonding" tent located immediately outside of the Spokane Convention Center Entrance for our staff to approve any items you bring. This will help alleviate any concerns from Security as you enter. Thank you.
Join us on Saturday June 6th, 2020 at 6:00pm for the largest cosplay contest in Eastern Washington!

Important: Weapons Guidelines & Cosplay Policies
The culture of Cosplay is one of fun, creativity, and mutual respect. Unfortunately, not every fan adheres to the "respect" part. Cosplay is NOT Consent - and cosplayers who dress in (sometimes) revealing costumes should not accept inappropriate behavior from their peers.
Anyone in violation of this rule will be banned for life from our show.
