Looks acceptable from my pov

Thanks. I'm gonna agree with you on that.

Awesome! Thanks much! It's a load off my mind. I'll have other cosplays for the weekend, but this is good to know.

Make sure to stick a safety color (bright orange, etc) on the tip though!

So ... Wooden katana. I am doing a Roronoa Zoro cosplay and I am now in distress. D: Would I be able to get my *wooden* swords peace-bonded? Argh, but that would look silly ...

Anywho, can I bring my katana? And if so, is that something that needs to be peace bonded? They're rounded at the tips.

Any and all props should be reviewed by Rovers. If it's based off a weapon, it needs to be peace bonded. It means that you've agreed to abide by the rules, and are allowed to carry your prop.

When you say wooden katana, do you mean a bokken? Or do you mean a katana replica with a sheath and a wooden blade?

Of course I will bring them to a Rover. They are wholly wooden. They're super cheap bokken, yes. Flimsy and all that. Would it have to be sheathed the whole time if I had it peace bonded? [And thank you for helping me.]

Bokken don't have sheathes. Though I guess if you were to make one, we'd ask that you carry it there, but it wouldn't be peacebonded into the sheath. But if you're really wondering if we have to attach it? We weren't as of last year. However, you're also not free to swing it around. Doing so will result in losing your prop privileges.

Maybe I'm wrong, then. Either or, the entirety of the prop is wooden and rounded. Yeah, no fooling around with it, just need it for my cosplay. (:

hey so im cosplaying as my in game character from Aion, and my character (a magic weilder person) uses an orb as her 'weapon' and i finally found a solid glass orb to use, but as i was reading i saw a rule with glass included in it. i just wanted to know if the rule was particular to certian kinds of glass props and if mine would be acceptable. here is a picture of it, it fits into my hand perfectly.

one of my costumes this year is very cumbersome and slow, so I was wondering if it would be alreight to have a small wagon that I could sit in and have my friends pull me around in it so I don't block or slow down con traffic. Would this be alright? the costume is small, but I have to crawl to get around in it (hence the desire for a wagon.)

Thanks for any help!

Regarding the military issue, i want to know if BDUs(http://www.specopstactical.com/shop/catalog/images/7815_UF_SWAT_CLOTH_WOODLAND_BDU.jpg) are listed as "modern" as ACUs(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8e/Army_Combat_Uniform.jpg) are currently the "modern" military uniform. i have been wearing one since i started attending at '09 and then again in '10, but at '11 i was told to remove it,but had no spare clothes with me so the rover asked me to just remove the hat and jacket and i should be fine. so im just asking to make sure for '12 if i can wear it or not, its the only cosplay i wear. also the uniform i own does not contain any wording, heres sort of a image of me wearing it (not full body)from '09: http://s206.photobucket.com/albums/bb143/KageNinja75/?action=view&current=DSC02619.jpg if you want me to take a photo of the entire outfit to see if its a pass or not, ill get one.

Our trouble with glass props is the breaking hazard they pose, and the danger that broken glass poses. I can't officially say "OK" to that. If you were to pose outdoors, near the fountain area, it would be much less of a hazard, however.

To the best of my knowledge, the San Jose Convention Center has asked us to keep wheeled things off the second floor. So... no, it wouldn't be completely alright. You could use it outdoors, or (probably) on the first floor provided you were careful about not going too fast or being wild.

I don't see an issue with a BDU jacket/hat provided that they do not have any patches or insignia to indicate that they belong to a military group. However, I'm going to run that by my bosses to be sure. Please email rovers@fanime.com and I'll get an answer to you via email ASAP.

All else fails, I have seen glass-like Christmas tree ornaments that might work out for that. Check Michael's or eBay for them. Michael's may still have some on super-clearance to boot.

If you want them to be solid, you could easily fill them with clear resin :)

Would altering a water pistol be alright? Such would be clogging the tank or the bit where the water comes out, so that it doesn't discharge any longer. they will mainly be used as a base for the Cosmo Dragoon for Captain Harlock.

  Ok, well thats fine, i think ill probably just go to Michaels and get a plastic ornament so that i don't have to worry about the glass, ill just use it for personal shoots.

We've allowed non-functional water guns. It has to be something significant, like what you suggested.

So I am planning on cosplaying Hibari Kyoya from Hitman Reborn, but I noticed that tonfas are banned. Does this ban include foam padded plastic tonfas? I found this pair on ebay and I was wondering if they would be okay to carry around.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-New-Foam-Padded-Practice-Training-Tonfa-Tong-Fa-Tuifa-/290656227806?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43ac7611de#ht_1069wt_1163

And here's a reference to Hibari just in case:

They're actually illegal in the State of California... even when padded. So no, unfortunately they can't be peace-bonded.

So what if I hand make a replica of the tonfas out of wood or pvc or any type of hollow tubing? Would this still fall under the ban? If this does fall under the ban, is there any way to make a replica that is okay to be peace bonded? Thanks and sorry for all the questions.

So, I'm planning on cosplaying as Fem!Shizuo from Durarara!! but have one issue: Shizu-chan's sign.



According to the prop rules the sign itself can't be made of aluminum can it?
