I want to know if cap guns are allowed, I need them both for two different cosplays.
Cap guns are functional, and are not allowed.
Even if the cap gun is non-functional?

Hello,
So when it says no live steel, does that mean none at all, anywhere? Or that the majority of the prop cannot be metal? I am in the beginning stages of making this:

Most of it will be made of PVC pipe, but I was going to use thin aluminum for the handle. Sorry if this is a silly question. Thanks!

The vast majority of cap guns are toys designed to look as close to the real thing as possible, so generally even non-functional cap guns aren't allowed.

"Live Steel" is basically metal that can be sharpened to a cutting edge. While unfinished aluminum is also sharp, if it is just used as an accent or for a small part of the prop, it shouldn't be a problem.

This is the cap gun I own and it doesn't function any more, so this won't even be allowed?

Hi, I am planning to do Psycho Pass cosplay. They have this jacket (link below), and on one shoulder it has the initials "WPC." I know the costume policy is that you can't have initials of any government official names. I'm not too sure if WPC stands for any American law officials or agencies. Just wanted to double check if it's okay to have "WPC" on the shoulder before I permanently paint it on.

Thank you~

Hello there, this is going to be my first year cosplaying and I plan on going as something along the lines of an Engineer from Battlefield 3, a PMC, and an OGA character model from MoH Warfighter. Seeing that as an airsofter, my kit is tailored in such fashion that I think it's fitting. I do not plan (nor will I ever plan on) bring my airsoft guns along as props to the convention (I read the rules down to the letter, twice  ;) ). However, my main question arises from one of your policies.

No costumes may be realistic depictions of American Law Enforcement or current American Military uniforms, or have the words POLICE, POLICIA, SWAT, FBI, DEA, CIA or any other official Government Agency names or initials on them.
In MoH Warfighter, Task Force Blackbird is said to be a fictional representation of the CIA's division of special/paramilitary operatives. And in Battlefield 3, the Engineer wears an EOD patch, which signifies Explosives Ordnance Disposal, a specialized unit in almost every LEO or Military whose specilization is stated in its name. There are links to the two patches below, and I was wondering if patches fall under that category, and if the two patches are OK to wear. I know I might seem silly for asking a question about patches, but I just want to be sure. Tahnk you for your time!

Hello there.

Concerning about the rule about sword prop:

"Sword-like props may not be made of live steel (metal which can take an edge) have a hardened edge if of other materials (wood, plastic or laminates)."

Would this consider to have a hardened edge since I'm planning to cosplay as Gintoki from Gintama.

Hi!
Me and my friend will be cosplaying as the Bankai versions of Hitsugaya and Ichigo from Bleach, and I'll be re-using my sword for a Kenshin cosplay as well..
Just to make sure, are these able to be peace-bonded and brought to fanime? Or are they not allowed?
We would just leave them in the sheaths anyways but I'm just double checking.

Ichigo's Bankai sword:

No, that wouldn't be allowed.

I am not aware of any agencies which use WPC.

Those appear to be metal which means they are not allowed at our convention.

So it would be fine for me to bring it to fanime? Thanks. Oh and do you know where I can get my weapon peace-bonded?

At a peace-bonding station. ;)

Rovers traditionally have a 24-hour peace-bonding station inside the Marriott Willow Glen rooms. I don't recall the number though it hasn't changed in the last five years.

When Gatherings is open, we have a secondary station there, as well, and if we manage to find the staff for it, we'll have a third station somewhere.

So I have a few Training guns, which are solid molds made of polyurethane, and they come in a solid blue. Last year i was told that they need to be a brighter color.

http://www.amazon.com/Rings-Blue-Guns-Training-Ar15/dp/B007RJQS2G/ref=sr_1_59?ie=UTF8&qid=1367888822&sr=8-59&keywords=blue+training+gun

These are a couple of them. They're gonna be used for Left 4 Dead Cosplays. Is just the Orange tip ok, or would they need to be one whole solid color?

Also, I have a Foam Fireman axe
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0055BLD1E/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
would this be ok?

Ok, I have a bit of a question regarding footwear.

One of my costumes has some footwear that was made by altering two separate items (stockings and tabi) to replicate a ninja shoe/boot. It's a bit hard to see but I do ask if this can be allowed

Those appear to be... socks. Socks are not shoes and would not qualify as acceptable footwear under our standards.

The axe should be alright.

I don't have an answer for the guns right this moment.

So my boyfriend is planning on cosplaying Kirito from SAO. And he bought these props for his cosplay. I didn't think to check to make sure these would be ok, i assumed they would be, but reading this forum im kinda nervous now. They are made out of pvc, and are super light and kinda fragile. Would they be ok? http://www.flickr.com/photos/64131224@N06/

As long as they have not been sharpened to an edge, they should be alright.
