Ano... I'm going to be cosplaying a character that carries around an iron frying pan. I don't really expect to take it out from the bag on my back except for photos.

Is it okay if I have an actual iron frying pan, or should I try to see if I can scrounge up a plastic-ish one?



EDIT 5/5/2008: The one that I'm using is more like a wok than a skillet, so it's a LOT lighter and smaller than the one I was thinking of using... I still would like to know if it is okay to carry it around.

I find it really funny that a frying pan could be considered a dangerous prop. maybe they will put a piece of blue tape on it so security knows it isn't loaded.
I wish I had something clever to put here :-(

I think they define live metal as something sharp and swingable, in a nutshell. I mean how many people have metal gutter like material for shoulder guards and other stuff? This is a good question, I'm anxious to see the official decision on this.

Well, with a skillet like the one I use, you could kill somebody by hitting them in the head, but it's a heavy chunk of cast iron. A lightweight aluminum model might be better, but this isn't my department, so don't quote me...

We did use one in a sketch at the masquerade one year, however. I think maybe it isn't against the rules?
There is a slight flaw in my character.

But isn't it true that you're allowed to use things in the masquerade that aren't normally allowed in the rest of the con areas?

That is true. For casual carrying, you'd want something lightweight, and the plastic would probably be a better choice.

Of course, I'm not the rules expert as far as this goes.

Unfortunately a metal skillet would count as live steel. -___-;;
The pastic-ish one owuld be fine.
