Cosplay Props/Accessories Policy If you choose to cosplay a character that carries a weapon you must take into account the following important matters. Each State and Territory in Australia has different legislation regarding weapons in place, including licensing, storage and restrictions. Under many of these different laws, replica weapons can be restricted just as much as actual weapons. Ubisoft by holding the Ubisoft Experience is not inviting you to carry any weapon as part of characters costume or accessories. You must ensure that if you choose to have an accessory that looks like or resembles a weapon, you are not breaking the law by doing so. As the Ubisoft Experience is in Sydney, New South Wales, you must comply with the NSW legislation. Please see the NSW Police Imitation Firearms Fact Sheet. Outside of the Ubisoft Experience, you are responsible for your own compliance with state and federal laws, including NSW Legislation for replica weapons such as holding, if required, a Firearms Permit under the Firearms Act 1966 (NSW). 1. General - No explosives or chemicals, such as fireworks, mace or pepper spray, or tasers are permitted at Ubisoft Experience. - No instruments that cause excessive noise, such as vuvuzelas, airhorns or grenade whistles are permitted at Ubisoft Experience. - Helium balloons are not permitted at Ubisoft Experience. - Absolutely no concealed weapons are permitted at Ubisoft Experience. At the Ubisoft Experience, any Cosplay prop or accessory that resembles a real weapon (imitation) must be checked at the Weapons Check Desk upon entry. The accessory will need to be checked and tagged by Ubisoft Experience Staff, indicating that the accessory complies with Ubisoft Experience standards. It is important to recognize that any accessory that falls under this category cannot be displayed in public outside of the Ubisoft Experience. Please check the NSW Legislation for Imitation Firearms Permit for further details. 2.
