Prop question (firearm)
« on: May 17, 2017, 09:30:31 PM »

Hi, I was wondering whether this Nerf gun would be con-legal:

I've stripped all functioning mechanisms based on this thread from 2015 that specifically mentions the brand (http://forums.fanime.com/index.php?topic=19864.0), but I know that the policy has changed since then. Is there enough safety coloring on its surface to be allowed? If it helps, the main body is a royal-ish blue that's a little lighter than the picture, and I plan to leave some of the branding exposed to make clear that it's a toy gun. Also, I'm aiming for a cosplay from Cave Story, with the Nerf as a stand-in for this pistol:


Thanks for the help!

Fanime has been changes their prop policies a lot recently. I'm not an official but from my experience that should be fine so long as you get it peace bonded. I'd say go ahead and bring it so long as you are ok with them saying it's not permissible when you go to get it peace bonded (in which case you will have to put it in your hotel room or car).

The blue might not be bright enough. Also make sure that you can't even pull the trigger. It doesn't matter if it does anything, if it has a trigger it has to be glued in place.

Alrighty, makes sense to me.

Ah, cool, I'll see if I can paint/cover up the main plastic and put a prop into the trigger to make sure it's nonfunctional.


Thanks for the help, guys!
