COSTUMES / WEAPONS CHECK:
While we will not be holding a Costume Contest at our 2018 show, the Charlotte Mini-Con encourages attendees who wish to attend in costume to come out and have fun! Please be advised that there will be a weapons check at the door and that all costume props must be either wooden or plastic to comply with the Grady Cole Center weapons policy. 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 Grady Cole Center. No metal weaponry of any kind will be allowed inside the Grady Cole Center. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing all the great costumes this weekend!

(Note: We ask that you please be respectful to the artists and exhibitors at Charlotte Mini-Con when taking photos with our costumed attendees. Please try not to block anyone’s set-up when taking photos, and if you would like to stage a group photo, please try to do so outside of high-traffic areas. We want everyone to have a great time at our show, and appreciate your help!)
