Gonna ask this now to get it out of the way.
I'll be cosplaying Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians and my prop, a staff, is just about an inch taller than me. I stand at 5'1" and my prop is no more than 5'2".
I know our props must be our height or shorter but will that inch make a difference? I'd really rather not have to cut this thing! :/
In your case, that'll be okay. Just don't brag to others that it's allowed.
These two I'll answer together:

Yea i figured as much, especially the last part about it never being loaded
/>/> It's understandable lol. You mentioned transparent and i found this one : http://www.ebay.com/...=item2c673ab596
Sorry to be a pest xD If this works i'll keep this gun in mind provided i purchase it. I might not even have this gun at the con period but meh..best to be safe than sorry.
Just figured i'd ask this too, as another alternative, would it be possible for me to paint this black or would i have to leave it as is? Gun from Kamen's link
You mentioned in Kamen's post that this gun would be ok but would painting it be a bad idea ._. Sorry just like to have all my bases covered on this.

I feel stupid for asking cause I feel like these have been covered already, but just want to double-check. My friends and I are doing a Hellsing group and we wanted to check on our gun props for validation/ideas.
We are doing these guns:
Works in Progress
and other I found
Would any of these work, and for the Works in Progress, wanting to get a consensus on painting of any more (ex. painting the green, leaving the grip, clip, and handle on the second toy, and leaving all orange as is). Trying to do anything to make them acceptable as a prop to walk around the con with.
Thanks in advance for answers/ideas!
Nope, the guns can't be painted black. As I mentioned before, airsofts and gun-like props need to be unrealistic enough that, if spotted from across a room while holstered, others can tell they're not real
. In these cases, you wouldn't be able to do that if they were painted black.
Thus, Thunderscream, that AK74 in the Amazon link wouldn't fly. The green ones, however, would be, as they're clearly not realistic in the base green color. Wingypoo, the transparent Jericho airsoft is fine as long as the ammunition rules are followed and it remains as is.
