Hello,

Seeing that there was a military cosplay turned down in the first page has me wondering about my own that I've worn to the Con on consecutive years, and I always ask here every year anyway. Its a standard woodland camo, or BDU(long discontinued in favor of ACUs our current military uniform) with a tactical vest, leg holster and helmet.There are no wording or patches.

Just in case, heres the criteria I was told to follow from last year:
Nothing in the holster at all.
Nothing in the pockets of the vest or else it will be too realistic, exception: pocket near the left shoulder was for cell phones and that was allowed.

and here's a picture of me in said outfit from last year(with Home Made Kazoku): http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb143/KageNinja75/Fanime%202014/DSC04571_zps0f7c42b0.jpg

Hello, I posted here last year about the BDU. This time I'm asking if the latest additions I added will be allowed.

But first, has there been any changes to the military policy as of now or anything that is being discussed for 2013?
There have not been any significant changes to the weapons or costume policy between 2012 and 2013.

-- I'm not certain about that costume at present. This computer is not great for images. Will review when I get home.

Alright then, I'll wait for your review. If the vest doesn't make it, I understand completely.

Alright, so I've talked to someone about it and the verdict is that the vest and holster are okay as long as the following conditions are met:
- Nothing should go into the pockets, if there's anything in them then they will look too realistic.
- Nothing should go in the leg holsters, most especially anything with a handle like a knife or a gun.

Otherwise, the print looks different enough from any official camo that it should be fine.
Alright, I plan to have nothing in them in the 1st place so thats good. Well, just one, on the top left is a pocket for a phone, is that allowed or absolutely nothing? That's all I have left. Other than that, awesome. Thanks for helping me for another year.

Anyway so one of my friends helped me with adding some accessories to my BDU: a leg holster, a tactical vest(no insignia or wording and from my point of view not the type used in the military or law enforcement), and helmet(plastic)

I have images of each on how they look on the BDU:
Vest http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb143/KageNinja75/2013-02-16-124859_zps56e09b8e.jpg
Holster: http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb143/KageNinja75/2013-02-16-124756_zps2f08262f.jpg
Helmet w/ cloth "half-mask": http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb143/KageNinja75/2013-01-22-154144_zpsa09f9557.jpg

I will not be using any props at all and just using them as accessories to get as close to the generic MGS enemy soldiers(reference image:http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/File:MIDDLEEASTREDZONE_3.jpg). Also if you need a better quality picture on the vest or also the back side, I'll get a pic of that as well if requested.


Edit: I'm assuming the vest will be the main point to discuss here. With the recent gun-related events this year, I can understand the concern for such cosplays, as well as for the rovers, nearby police, and basically anyone just passing by the convention area.

Regarding the military issue, i want to know if BDUs(http://www.specopstactical.com/shop/catalog/images/7815_UF_SWAT_CLOTH_WOODLAND_BDU.jpg) are listed as "modern" as ACUs(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8e/Army_Combat_Uniform.jpg) are currently the "modern" military uniform. i have been wearing one since i started attending at '09 and then again in '10, but at '11 i was told to remove it,but had no spare clothes with me so the rover asked me to just remove the hat and jacket and i should be fine. so im just asking to make sure for '12 if i can wear it or not, its the only cosplay i wear. also the uniform i own does not contain any wording, heres sort of a image of me wearing it (not full body)from '09: http://s206.photobucket.com/albums/bb143/KageNinja75/?action=view&current=DSC02619.jpg if you want me to take a photo of the entire outfit to see if its a pass or not, ill get one.

Registration / Re: So I thought I was already registered...
« on: May 19, 2011, 12:10:15 AM »
im posting for a similar reason, i registered janurary and was about to pay today,i wasnt following the date so online reg is closed already.i still have my email reciept for the badge,is there any way i can still pay for it and pick it up on thursday? or will i have to print the reciept and show up on friday and pay up front?

EDIT:nvm the receipt was from last year but i remember my price was $55.00 however since the online reg was closed,i no longer have valid proof to print out. so im guessing i will have to pay at the door on friday then and im also guessing i will have to pay $60 now too?

EDIT2:i guess i can also ask this as well but i turned 18 last year however i do not own a driver's license or state ID(it was considered however it is a 60-day process and at that time it wasnt gonna arrive in time for Fanime) the last 2 previous years i was allowed with a school photo ID.now im in community college,so i dont have a current photo ID, will i be able to show my ID from last year? im kind of worried as im looking forward to my 3rd consecutive year at Fanime and to not be able to go when its next week will be really disappointing.
