All replica weapons will need to be inspected and approved as a non-functional prop at the door before they will be allowed inside the Charlotte Mini-Con. No metal weaponry of any kind will be allowed. We appreciate your understanding.

(Note: We ask that you please be respectful to the artists and exhibitors at Charlotte Mini-Con when taking photos. Please ask permission before you take a photo, and do not block anyone’s set-up when taking photos. If you would like to stage a group photo, please do so outside of the convention floor.
