Made of wood it will be fine.

Question: swords made of wood are fine, correct? What if their blades are covered in aluminum tape? It simply gives it the shine and metallic look of live steel, but without any of the sharpness or danger.

I do not see an issue with that.

This thread has been very helpful, thank you!

What about a really big drill?  All foam (with the exception of the hose which is thin plastic tubing) and everything is completely static as the hose can be magnetically attached or removed - it doesn't fire or anything like that.

And an ion cannon - ABS, PVC and foam, no triggers, grips are from handheld packing tape dispensers, everything is completely static.

Both of those look fine. Not only are they clearly props, but they're well made. Just come by and get them peacebonded in costume, and be sure you behave while carrying them. ;)

A trumpet? Is there a costume you would need to carry it with?

Generally we say yes to those, on the condition that you do not play it. Or bludgeon anyone with it.

Yeah, definitely not gonna be playing it since I'll be wearing some form of mask. And I don't plan on beating anyone with a musical instrument either o_o.

Would something like this be allowed for a historical cosplay? If not, is there any way it can be modified to be allowed? It's non firing and made of wood with the permanent neon orange tip, but the little details are made of metal.

Clicky~

Edit: Dunno if it matters, but since this prop's appearance is earlier than (the year) 1899, it would be defined as 'antique' and even a real gun of the same year (1807 in this prop's case) would be allowed to be open carried in California so long as it were unloaded, according to PC 16520(d)(5).

I plan on cosplaying Kitsurubami from FLCL in the paintball fight episode where she has a sniper rifle and I'm making the gun out of styrofoam, clay, cardboard, and wood. I'm making it as flat and basic as I can but was wondering if it will still be classified as "realistic" and not allowed.  here's a reference picture of her and my prop: [It's not painted yet but the green binocular next to it is what color it will be.]

Honestly, I'd say it's okay, and I'd like to approve it so long as you understand that if any convention center staff object-- the people who actually work for the building-- we may h ave to ask you to put it away.

You will need to find a way to tag it with neon orange somewhere near the tip.

Hello! I am making this bow: .


I don't intend to make it able to fire anything. I do not want that at all. I am going to make it out of expanding foam, with either worbla or fiberglass/bondo ontop of it.

Is this okay?

If I remember correctly, the string can't be able to hold the tension necessary to fire.

I'm still in the processes of making it but as it is now it's almost 4 feet in length

I've been told that if I gutted my airsoft (which I did, I took out all the internal parts and cement glued the barrel with a machine screw with the orange tip still intact) that I can get it approved by both SJPD and Fanime Rovers even though it's still black. Can someone guide me along with this?

I don't know who told you that, but they lied. We never allow airsoft regardless of functionality.

As long as it is clearly a prop, you're good. (I'd say it qualifies.)
