I have a question. My friend and I are going to Anime Expo in 2019. We have these cute cotton candy cosplays we wanna do, and wondered if it would be allowed, if we had a little cotton candy machine, to make them and pass them out to con goers as a cute interactive part of our cosplays? The containers would be closed until we arrived, and still sealed. Only opened upon arrival at the con.
We just thought that it would make an adorable addition to our cosplay, and make other con goers smile and be happy.
Thank you for your inquiry into Anime Expo.
Unfortunately you will not be allowed to pass out cotton candy to attendees on the Los Angeles Convention Center grounds. It would be considered soliciting and that is not allowed.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you.
