Hi there,

I'm planning on a couple of cosplays that involve gun props.

I have a small group planning to cosplay characters from Psycho Pass and carry "dominator" guns made of either medium-density fibreboard or foam. Here a couple of reference pictures from the anime: http://www.entravity.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/psycho-pass-21-4-dominator.jpg

Since these "guns" will be rather apparently fantasy props based on their shape and weight (they don't even really have a "barrel" for any possible projectile), would it be possible to carry our replicas without painting the tips orange? We are also planning to add a switch to light up some LEDs for the parts that glow blue, and putting the switch in the trigger was a consideration. Would this be alright?

My other concern is with a cosplay of Akemi Homura from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. I was hoping to carry a replica of one of the guns she uses in the anime (the Beretta 92FS). I found and bought an airsoft gun with an orange tip prior to reading the rules regarding projectiles. (A terrible oversight, I know.) I was wondering if it would be legal to carry this prop gun if I were to render it inoperable as a projectile weapon (eg. gutting it, plugging the barrel, and/or jamming the trigger). If this isn't possible, would you or anyone else have suggestions for what would work as an acceptable substitute while still sticking to the character?

Thanks!

Would it be ok to request that a post be made here when acceptance emails get sent out?

What times/dates is Fanimaid Cafe open?  What times would we be expected to be working?  Are the shifts 4 hours each?

I'm going to be working on the Friday that Fanime opens.  I can't get time off.  Does this mean I can't be a maid?

I am interested in going, but what is meant by "it will be held in the same area"?

I was one of the first people to arrive at the SF tryouts, but was one of the last to be interviewed. :(  I was actually pretty tired at the end, because the interviews did take a long time (not the individual interviews, but the whole process itself including a long wait time), so I don't think I did so well.  I think I was too shy to jump in and ask to be interviewed earlier.  It's probably a good idea to try to get interviewed earlier if you can, while you're still full of energy.  Good luck, minna!

@TiffanyF: Actually, I'm very curious as well.  Would it really be clutter to post it here?  If so, though, could you email me as well?

I was also wondering about the personality issue a little.  Is it encouraged to have a unique personality/attraction-factor (think: tsundere, tomboy, mature, etc.) or is it preferred that we stick to the classic moe ideal?  Sorry if this is something I shouldn't be asking about.

Hey there!  I was wondering if you could tell us what kinds of things to expect at tryouts.  Will they be just interviews, or some sort of practice run?

Edit:
As I was going through a few of the past fanimaid threads, I noticed that both tryouts are usually in San Jose due to convenience of scheduling the venue.  Do you think there will be a San Francisco tryout this year?  Going to SF is more convenient for me during the school year.  Also, are there usually at least 2 meetings in SF?  I realize it may be too soon to be asking these questions, so I apologize if I'm being pushy.
