Cosplay Weapons Question! Please Help!
« on: September 18, 2005, 04:33:09 PM »

I know and have read all of the rules about cosplay weapons, but no not mention even the rules don't stae anything about cap guns. So does anyone know if plastic cap guns without caps will be allowed to cosplay with, or know someone I can at least contact to find out. The actual site is down now for some reason, so that's out of the question. Someone please help me in any way possible! Thanks!

Anything that makes a *clack* sound or literally shoots something, most likely, it's not allowed.

We are still working out all the details on the weapons policy (to comply with new California laws). We will be posting one that's ready to go. :) thanks for your patience.

what if it's just a semi-realistic toy gun that makes lame sound effects when you press the trigger?

what if you paint that cap a different color? Sounds lame, but it's a possibility.

i would say just wait for the new site to come back online and look then. we still have ALOT of time to make what we need. and most likey and needs to be obvious to all (even stupid ppl...like me) that it is complety fake. so colored tip, lil to no sounds. and i would check it with the wepons ppl at fanime to cover me butt.

What I want to know is what type of guns/toy guns or whatever (cap guns, rubber dart guns, fake prop guns, etc.) are allowed and which ones are not. Of course I get it checked at conops, but I just don't want to bring one that is not allowed and end up getting in trouble or kicked out or anything like that.

We will have a weapon's policy posted on the web site with enough time for you to prepare before the con to bring something safe. We promise. We are currently working out all the details, and there are several different points of view on this stuff! :) Please give us a little time. We have had new staff come on board (like me!) and we are all still negotiating. :)

However, please note that there will be slightly different rules for what's acceptable for the Masquerade contest because it's really a different thing. I know that a lot of people want to design the EXACT replica of something and want to get credit for that in Craftsmanship (which is a new bonus contest added onto Masquerade this year). So, we will be a little more flexible with more accurate (yet must still be fake!) weapons that you can bring to Craftmsanship judging and to the Masquerade itself-- but only to those contests and not to carry around the con iteself.

Anyway, I hope that helps and isn't too confusing. We will post an official policy as soon as one is available.

Thanks for your patience :D

P.S. I made this thread sticky so that people can post weapon's questions in this thread as it gets closer to the convention.

What about a crossbow that has no spring action (it is removed), no arrows, and is clearly harmless? Will it go through?

If you mean like a crossbow gun, most likely not. Believe it or not, those are more dangerous than firearms. Now if it is a fake one (good luck finding a fake one), like a sponge dart/nerf one or something, probally so.

The site appears to be "down for renovation". Can anyone tell me what the policy on swords is? Is it like the CA RenFaire, where it's a 1/16th inch edge? Or no edge? Or no swords? Gah! Must know for costume planning...

You got it right in 3 my friend.  The policy continues no metal blades of ANY kind.  Although if you do foam with a metal (cylindrical pole) center that seems to be okay.  What kind of sword are you thinking?

Ive been wondering on the same front.  A model enthusiast friend of mine bought one of the chinese style wooden swords from Armorgeddon, sanded off the finish, primered and panted the blade a very realistic metallic, then gave it two clearcoat finsh to produce a VERY realistic looking, but con legal blade.  Perhaps that could work for you?
