Anime expo weapons question...Made cosplay whip with rope..but it actually functions?

Hey so do you know how strict AX is about its cosplay weapons? I made a whip out of rope and fabric but it actually has a decent amount of force. It makes the whipping sound and has similar dynamics of a whip. Would anime expo likely not let me bring it in? The end is going to have a leather heart on it filled with cotton balls, so maybe that will lessen any impact it could potentially show. :

As long as you're not using it as a weapon and not flailing it around then it should be fine.
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
With that next step take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
When the mind is calm you realize the best is still yet to come.

I think it's fine as a prop, but not fine to "use" in a public space. Actually using it should be confined to a controlled skit or photoshoot - something where absolutely everyone in the vicinity knows what's going on, not just "stand back and watch". You could catch someone even if you didn't intend to just playing around or break a fragile costume part or whatever - I don't think it's worth it just out of basic consideration of others.

Actually in the pipes:
- Remaking Ser Loras doublet.
- Luke Skywalker, A New Hope
- Wind Waker starter costume in swim material
Eventually: Paul from Dune, Faramir, Harry Sullivan
