Question about "those" paddels
« on: April 16, 2008, 11:14:51 AM »

Familiar with those yaoi and yuri paddels? Well I had an idea of making a custom one that read "WEEABOO" across it. However, a good friend of mine told me that the wooden paddels were banned from the con. So my question was could I make a foam one or paddels all together got the Ban Hammer?

Oh god.

I don't know if introducing more weapons to hit other people with to this crowd may be a good idea.

Now that I think about it, I think they were banned at Fanime last year, in regards to selling them at least... but those who brought them just got them peace-bonded or something because I DID see them around. Don't know about an overall ban, but it's not too unlikely.

Yeah I don't know about this year, but I bought a YAOI paddle last year.  They made you get them peace bonded, and just didn't let you spank people, but you could carry them around.

According to http://www.fanime.com/file_download/29/Fanime+2008+Weapons+Policy.doc they're allowing bokken and sticks, and a paddle seems reasonably similar to a staff to me.  So, I think what suna_no_yoroi said about last year is probably still true.  It sounds like it's probably OK as long as you get it peace-bonded and you don't swing it around or hit or even threaten to hit anybody with it.

The weapons policy seems very restrictive.  "Anything that could be used in a menacing manner" is a weapon, and "effectiveness of the object or the skill of the person in possession of the object is not relevant when determining whether or not the object is a weapon".  So, since martial artists can probably use their bare hands rather effectively in a menacing manner, does that mean everybody has to cosplay and we have to get our bare hands peace-bonded, or do we just have to put our hands in bags that render them ineffective?  ;)

Seriously... these are the STUPIDEST THING EVER to come out of American fandom of JP. Why in the hell do people pay 20-40$ for something essentially so stupid, that the entire basis of it doesn't make sense.

I hate those things myself.

The only paddle I'd make is "dumba**" to counter all the yaoi and yuri paddles for retribution purposes if they come in for first strike.

Kid, ignore the haters, make your own paddle, and enjoy the con.
