Weapons & Props Policy


Planet Comicon Kansas City welcomes cosplay to our convention and the wonderful creativity and fun it adds to our show.  We also value the safety of all those attending and are working with KCPD and our security contractor to put together a plan designed to help all attendees to enjoy our event to its fullest.   PCKC reserves the right to conduct bag checks and utilize metal detectors as deemed appropriate by show management and our professional security team.  We sincerely appreciate your patience and support.

Costume Props Policy  

Please review PRIOR  to attending Planet Comicon Kansas City (PCKC).

All props will be inspected and evaluated to determine if they present an unreasonable risk of harm to attendees of the show. Props will be evaluated from the standpoint of the risk they present based on the materials used, the way they are displayed or carried, their functionality, and potential for harm to others.
Hate symbols are not permitted at PCKC, including as part of cosplay, and PCKC will not allow costumes that contain hate symbols or appropriate the symbolism of hate groups, including, but not limited to, historical/comic-related/satirical costumes that are associated with Nazis.

All costume props and weapons must be inspected each day of the convention at the Costume Props Desks:

Weapons Check is located near Will Call on the east side of Lobby 2200

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 Planet Comicon Kansas City.  All costume props and weapons must be inspected at the Costume Props Desk.

Prohibited Items

Show management reserves the right to make changes to this policy at any time.
