It's Friday, Mid-shift, I'm sitting at the prop check and a gentleman comes up to me in a "Blu Sniper" cosplay from Team Fortress 2, while his gun was obviously not working and fake looking, it still required an orange tip, so i informed him that it needed an orange tip because it wasn't clear. i told him i didn't care how, or what he had to do, as long as there was an orange tip I'd be happy. he said "cool!" and strolled off.
Now I'm picturing him coming back with some orange paper taped to the barrel, or maybe he went to the dealer hall and got an orange tip from a vendor, or hell, maybe he found some orange tape, What i saw when he returned made my con though.
30 minutes later he came back with none of the above...instead on the end of his barrel was...A whole frickin' orange! as in the fruit! stuck more then half way through the core.
i couldn't help but smile and laugh, i called my upper management over to give it an official Yes or no, and he had the same reaction as me, we let him go on sheer creativity but i still can't forget that moment and it was one of my top 10 con moments.
