Absolutely not! A lot of convention attendees have loads of fun spending the year putting together costumes based on some of their favorite characters from anime and popular culture. But that’s not necessary. You can come dressed in your everyday street clothes. All that matters is you come and have fun!

Everything you need to know about AnimeCTX’s weapons and props policy can be found here.

Unfortunately due to restrictions at AnimeCTX’s venue and because we value the safety of our members and their pets, we do not allow animals other than registered service animals. Please keep your pets home where they will remain safe!

All lost items are handed over to the hotel. You can contact them at the front desk for further information.

Registration

AnimeCTX offers several packages at varying prices including discounts for pre-registration and early registration. You can find more information on pricing details on our registration page.

Pre-registration is the start of the discounted period when you can get your weekend passes at the highest discounted price while Early Registration is your last chance to get any discount on your weekend badge.

During online Pre-Registration and Early Registration periods we accept all major credit cards through Eventbrite. However, during the convention on-site registration and merchandising accepts cash, credit, and debit.

Unfortunately, we don’t offer refunds for any of our memberships. Your badge is a membership; it is up to you to obtain your badge and attend.

We do not allow the transfer of memberships at all. This includes transfers from one person to another, or from one convention year to the next.

AnimeCTX will not mail out badges. To pick up your badge simply stop by the registration desk during convention hours and bring your Eventbrite e-mail confirmation (preferred), Eventbrite confirmation via the Eventbrite app, or a state or school issued photo ID.

We do! Group rates require 10 or more people and are $4 off of the current membership prices. Please contact info@AnimeCTX.com for all inquiries.

Children between the ages of 7 through 11 can attend with the discounted children’s rates so long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children aged 6 and under may attend for free.

With both Ichiban and VIP badges you receive early entry to main events, early bird access to exhibits, advanced seating options, an exclusive poster, and double tickets at ticketed events for the grand giveaway.

However, VIP memberships have the following included that Ichiban does not: special autograph sessions, a convention t-shirt, a bottomless collectible cup, and a neck wallet.
