One of the reasons I asked, was that I was wondering if this sort of footwear was acceptable. I mean it's in essence a pair of flip flops, and I am guessing that even if they are ok, that Rovers will stop me (Which I'm ok with, they are doing their job.) I just wanted some confirmation either way as to whether they are ok. I don't want one Rover to say its cool, and another to say it's not. It gets confusing.

I don't believe Open toe shoes are smiled on at Fanime.

Let's see...

The Lego gun is something I need to talk to someone about, I'll try to have an answer up tonight. If you're willing to bond them together, or paint the bricks themselves this may be an option.

The fake bullets on the bandoleer sound fine.

No, the light gun trigger shouldn't have to be removed. That is one of the changes I'm making this year.

The 2014 policy is almost the same as 2013. Only small changes to what is banned. Plans are to ease not restrict which is why its not up.

We don't care about what sort of shoes you wear as long as you are, in fact, wearing shoes. If they're really stealthy shoes we may ask to make sure you're wearing some, but that should be the extent of it.

I think that answered everything pending. If not, I'll be checking tonight after work so expect more then.

A plastic axe would be fine. A plastic gun would depend upon how realistic it looked. We do not allow replicas, airsoft, etc.

Specific location is TBD. As of now, Rovers is in the middle of sorting out a move from the Marriott to the Hilton for FanimeCon 2014. I think the room name is the Santa Clara in the Hilton on the second floor. We also traditionally have another station next to the gatherings tables in the main foyer, but with the remodel, that may be changing, too.

So, when you arrive at con, approach someone with a "Rovers" badge on their arm and ask where peacebonding is. (And if they give you anything other than a courteous answer, ask for Erin when  you get to Rovers.)

So how did those Resident Evil cosplayers on the previous page get by the rules without getting caught?

According to the FAQ it depends on if they have a hardened edge. You probably need to provide more details to get a ruling.

this is the sword, the others are similar to it.  I don't know what they mean by hardened edge, if you were talking about metal then I would know but all I can tell you is that it does taper into a blade by the looks of it but it is not capable of cutting not to mention the blades would remain sheathed unless somebody wanted a picture.

Short answer: we didn't >_>
Long Answer: I am the...Forth one down pictured, I believe? Sporting the nifty FAMAS, G17, & Beretta. The picture must've been taken my first day at the con in that H.U.N.K cosplay, needless to say I was stopped partway through the day and told I couldn't have the guns, so I traded them in for my hidden wrist blade prop. Which was really just a rubber fake knife stuffed into my sleeve, so that didn't ruffle any feathers :p
Anywho, don't assume just because others have gotten by a few hours or days without being ejected from the con that you can 'do any better'. In talking with the peace bonding staff, they were very clear and polite about causing as little public alarm as possible, and, unfortunately, realistic prop guns can cause a great deal of alarm :/
Though, if it means anything, not carrying the guns didn't take away from my cosplaying fun in the slightest~

I don't know what you expect me to say to this.

Looking at the link you shared, I see no issue. Very nice choice.

so it's still frown upon to want to cosplay a policeman from Tokyo, despite it being visible on the badges of the uniform & such? The character is Goto Hidenori from Samurai Flamenco along w/ the title character. Not looking to impersonate an actual officer, but at the same time, don't want any heat from Rovers/ actual law enforcement/ etc.

Will my cosplay be allowed at Fanime 2014
« Reply #415 on: March 02, 2014, 01:42:08 AM »

First time cosplaying I will be going as member of the Umbrella Corp from Resident Evil. My gear is pretty much all tactical gear over black clothing and some Umbrella Logos, I know that airsoft guns are not allowed so I wont be bringing my prop weapon anymore. Here are some picture of my cosplay let me know if its allowed please because if not that would be pretty lame cuz i prepared all this since last year Fanime where i didnt get to do a cosplay.

If it doesn't say "Police" in English, or in Romanji/Roman Alphabet in any similar languages. (That is "Policia" or similar.) It seems like it would be distinct enough.

That said, approval of this is conditional, because I am not seeing the actual costume.

Ok, supposingly what if on the badges, I make with just a drawn-looking symbol on it & no readable wording? & hang around a weirdo decked out in red like i'm suppose to? Does that still make it distinguishable at all, or is it still a "grey-area" kind of issue?

The Lego gun is something I need to talk to someone about, I'll try to have an answer up tonight. If you're willing to bond them together, or paint the bricks themselves this may be an option.

Any update on this?  I'm definitely willing to bond the bricks, and make sure that orange ones are used on the tip.  What else do you recommend?  Thanks.
