Re: Is This an Acceptable Prop?
« Reply #281 on: May 23, 2011, 11:41:58 PM »

I am Cosplaying as The Wonder Chef from Tales of Symphonia and part of the costume is a Giant Fork. I have gotten a fork that is made of aluminum and has no sharp edges. Is this an acceptable prop under the prop rules and limitations?

Err... I'm not sure why you didn't post here originally, rather than making your own thread. But since it got merged, I've now seen your question so I can help by answering-- sort of. Can you describe your giant fork a little better? Or do you have a picture? I mean, is it machine-cut aluminum, or made of foil, or... what?

Okay... Explain this to me about the batons? I have a prop that was made out of a baton (a Wind Waker) and it's REALLY crucial for the cosplay I have... Should I still take it or don't even bother with it? =/ Here's a picture of it...
http://i53.tinypic.com/2meaglj.jpg
The intent of the rule is to prevent erm... wooden, heavyweight batons-- like a police baton-- rather than a conducting baton. You're fine.

http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g263/God91125/242864_10150196634783139_617308138_7011990_4756897_o.jpg

So a little while ago I posted about how my prop shotgun could be peace bonded down so I can't load it or anything but otherwise took a picture of all my props to get a general idea if they're alright or not. Shotgun was going to hold, plastic katana on my side and the pills and pipebomb in my pocket. Though worried if that pipe bomb looks too realistic or anything will of course bring it into the station. But just wondering if I should change the colors around for the gun or anything.
I don't think I can OK the pipe bomb, because we don't allow fake incendiary devices. The shotgun looks like a toy, so it should be ok. We'll review it for sure at the station.

Hey!
So starting to think about my prop and here's my question.
I have a toy replica of a pirate like pistol (think children's Halloween costume prop). The trigger is removed, the insides are Ll removed and filled with glue (including the barel) and there is a 1 inch red/orange stripe on the tip. I also have a holster I made for it.
So 1) are my props acceptable?
2) should I adjust the holster to facilitate the pistol being peace bonded to them? (ps holster is actually attached to my pants)
Truly fake looking toy guns will not require holsters, but will require the tips. This *sounds* alright, but I have to see it in person to give you a final verdict.

Alright much thanks, I'll bring everything to peace bonding to double check but yeah if pipebomb not ok no biggie got a bunch of other cool props :D xD

I'm new to forums and I didn't understand how it worked, but I'm glad it got merged, thank you!

Strictly speaking, we don't allow metal props. However, I'd like to see that in person. It seems like the sort of thing we can OK, but I can't say that for sure just looking at the description. Bring it by a peace bonding station and we'll check it out.

For the new policy change, what if the character doesn't have a holster?

My friend is cosplaying as Panty (from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt) and will have a gun similar to these pictures (except it's made out of wood):
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v294/redroses3164/Front.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v294/redroses3164/Back.jpg

It's going to fairly shiny as well. Will we need some sort of makeshift holster anyway even if the character never has one?
No, that's fake enough that it won't need a holster. You're fine still.

But that is a legitimate question. Unfortunately, when it comes to replicas, it doesn't matter if your character has a holster, we're requiring you to have one.

For this gun (same picture links in quotes), I won't be having a hole or a tip for a barrel. Do I still need to have an orange tip anyway? If yes, then I'll mod it to have one this week.

Again, this prop is going to be out of wood instead of paper/cardboard.

The wood is fine, and it will need the orange tip.

I got a ball and chain(like from jail) that is a prop and not a weapon. Just making sure does it need to be peacebound (its attached to my leg)

I just realized today about my weapon that i've finished a while ago. I used the rod from swiffer mops to make the staff portion of my weapon. Will this be considered "not okay"? Since its metal-ish? It's not sharp or anything.  My weapon is the trident for Chrome Dokuro (KHR).

My finished weapon ---> http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y5/Darkness_Raven/SAM_6604.jpg (no worries, the spikes were made out of paper). Only concerned about the staff portion. :(

the ball is plastic hollow and the strap is leather. I have plastic and metal chain between the ball and strap but so far metal chains have not been an issue at cons(including fanime ichigo sword last time had metal chain they just shortened it) if its short.

That doesn't sound like an issue. Just be aware of your surroundings and don't trip anyone with it.

Err... I don't think a swiffer handle with paper spikes at the top should be an issue. Just be aware of your surroundings & the like.

Completed my rifle today, just posting for posting sake and double checking.


for a sense of scale It's 5 and a half feet long from barrel tip to the butt of the stock. No it won't have the bipod attached. Linking so I save people's bandwidth.

Ok quick one. I have an Old school Wood handcufs I use as Free escaping from jail. The prop has a rubber band keeping it closed so i can easily get in and out of it for my hands cant fit in without opening them. This is not a weapon and is 100% a prop. Some rovers have given it the stank eye so i just wanted to make sure it was ok.

Consider this officially closed. The 2012 policy drafts will be posted sometime next month.
