I have a wooden cosplay sword that has a wooden sheath with it and has a small metal chain hanging off the end of it. The blade is not sharp, but I read the weapons policy and it didn't say anything about wooden blades just bat and paddles. I am wondering if I can bring this blade for my cosplay or if I have to leave my weapon behind?

Sorry for the delayed response. A wooden sword is allowed into Anime Expo. If the wooded blade happens to be sharp it must remain within the sheath at all times.

Be sure to get your sword peace bonded at one of our Weapons Check tents located outside of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please let us know and we will be glad to assist you.

Best Regards,
