since it's inside a hotel, how strict is it usually? orange-tipped airsofts or foamed staffs allowed? how about giant FF metal/wood gunblades? kenshin katanas/sheathed live steel katanas?

Below is the weapons policy for Yaoi Con, from yaoicon.com:

NO weapons that are made of real steel or metallic parts are allowed
Realistic looking weapons must be "safed" #&151; and verified by either the Cosplay Coordinator or Convention Security #&151; with a pre-designated piece of ribbon or gaffer's tape
All gun replicas must have an orange cap at the nozzle per law

So you cannot bring replica katana's even though it has wrappings to ensure it remains sheath? Okay... :(

I've got the same problem. Bad news for me is that the sword pretty much makes the costume @_@
