QuoteSword-like props may not be made of live steel2, or have a hardened edge if made of other materials (such as wood, plastic, or laminate).

As I'm not an expert in props or affiliated with Fanimecon or the Rovers department in any way, I'm not entirely sure what the difference would be between "hard wood" and a "hardened edge," if there is any. It might have to be determined individually by Fanimecon staff, taking into account the specific type of wood and construction of the sword.Even if it ends up being peace-bonded to your costume while inside of the convention center, you can still pose with it for pictures outside of the convention center. If anyone stops you for a hall shot, you'll just have to come up with a pose that doesn't involve the sword.Though, before you totally freak out, and before you write off having that sword at all, you should maybe look into the PVC option for sale on that website. Plastic is typically considered safer than wood for weapons, and it seems more likely that you'd be able to carry it.I'd wait for a reply from someone affiliated with this particular branch of Fanimecon and/or for the official weapons policy thread to open before deciding anything either way, though. I'm just basing this off of my own personal knowldge of reading through those threads and from reading the weapons policy on the website.
