PLEASE, abide by the golden rule and treat others how you would want to be treated and respected. Amongst other attendees, we are all here to have our best times of life, lets be the best we can with each other, respect each person's attendee experience. Lets do our best to be socially aware of others around us, lets watch out for over stepping boundaries of other people, such as: giving or asking for unwanted physical contact such as hugs or high fives, following another attendee around who is unfamiliar, or unwanted distasteful photo or videography. Lets always remember Cosplay is not Consent.

For public health and safety, all attendees must wear appropriate footwear inside the Hotel and our convention spaces. Bare foot attendees, socks only, or attendees with footwear deemed unsafe or inappropriate, will be politely removed by the hotel security as the venue itself would not condone this. Please wear any of the following: Shoes, sandals, flip flops, aqua sox, or slippers.

Sin City Anime reserves the right to deem any costume unacceptable, inappropriate, or unsafe, and request the attendee in costume to make necessary modifications to attain an acceptable presence within the all ages sections of the convention. If an attendee is costuming for an 18+ event, or other event requiring the costume in question, it is suggested to wear a covering outfit for the general convention space

General Policies

Sin City Anime staff and the Safety Response team will enforce this age standard, and unaccompanied children will be brought to registration where their guardian on file will be contacted to re-establish accompaniment.  According to Las Vegas and Clark County laws, there is a curfew for those under 18. A parent or guardian over the age of 18 is required to accompany his/her child who is under the age of 18 after midnight off the Las Vegas Strip.


Sin City Anime badges are the property of Sin City Anime LLC and are registered and given to attendees as a symbol of ticket purchase and access to all of the convention features. These badges are registered and used as a reference of personable accountability for Sin City Anime Staff, and therefore making the registered person a Sin City Anime Attendee. Badges may not be modified, copied, or tampered with in any way. Sin City Anime staff holds the right to revoke badges at their discretion.

Lost or Stolen badges may be replaced only once at a fee of $30. Registration will use your government issued photo ID confirm registration and issue the replacement badge. Should Sin City Anime LLC find that this policy is being exploited, we will terminate this policy at our discretion.​


All ticket sales are final, and refunds will not be offered on any ticket purchases for Sin City Anime. This practices enables smooth planning and operation of the convention.​

Absolutely NO open weapons are allowed on the convention premises, whether visible or not. Sin City Anime reserves the right to remove anyone who brings a weapon of threat into our convention area. Cosplayers may bring prop or fake weapons as part of their outfit, however they must be checked in by our staff at our Weapons Check booth attached to Registration. Special zip-ties will be applied to the prop weapon to show it was checked by staff. Prop weapons that have not been approved will be stopped and rejected at all main entrances of the convention. Below are a list of miscellaneous rules and requirements of cosplay weapon props.
-No wooden or metal swords, bats, or any other weapon made from solid wood or metal. If purchased in the exhibitor hall, they must be wrapped, sealed, and taken to be stored away from the convention.
-Weapon props resembling guns MUST have the orange or bright marker cap at the tip of the barrel. Gun props may NOT have a magazine attached to them, and one may not be carried around to use for photos. If gun weapons are seen to be tampered with in either way, they will be confiscated and/or the cosplayer will have their badge taken away.
-Cosplay prop weapons may not be usable in their original fashions. If a weapon prop can be used as the intended/depicted weapon, the Safety Response Team and the Weapons Check staff may ban the prop at their discretion.
-There may be other stipulations that arise, please be mindful with us that we are looking to create the best experience for everyone, and keeping everyone feeling safe will require all of our participation.


In consideration of the ongoing challenges our world is facing, including the recent conflicts and tragic incidents:

-We have made the decision to prohibit tactical costumes and cosplay at this year's convention.

-We also kindly ask that attendees do not bring any projectile-type weapon props. Realistic or fantasy, we want to avoid anything that could resemble a firearm.
