Sweet. I know my commissioner dude is taking a lot of time to make this for me, and I didn't want to have to paint the end. Glad there's an alternative! Thanks for answering my questions, everyone!

So I didn't see anything about baseball bats or the like, but I was looking to have a wooden baseball bat as a prop. It would have short one to two inch "spikes" in it [like the middle character in this image http://25.media.tumb...ygkto1_1280.jpg ] BUT I would be making them rounded off, not pointed, per say. Would that be okay as long as the spikes were rounded and not pointy? They'd be made of paperclay or foam. Also, the spikes on the rest of the outfit would also be made of foam or paperclay and rounded as well.

Asking just in case...I may be purchasing a spiked collar to wear for one of my cosplays. I'm sure its ok, as long as the spikes aren't sharp, but I wanted to be sure from the info of a pro ^-^

This wasn't quite clarified in the list, so, I have two important questions (well, three, actually :I):

My main cosplay character carries dynamite. Is it permitted for cosplayers to carry pipe props on them? (I have over fourteen pipe props resembling dynamite as part of my cosplay. They are hollow, and the caps on them can be removed if asked. I don't want there to be any problems carrying them / having them on me, you know?)

My second question is this. I am considering cosplaying as someone who wears a cropped top, basically. What exactly are your regulations in regards to this?

Also (in regards to the first cosplay), would it be alright to have a costume cigarette, referring to one that actually has smoke coming from it, but isn't really a cigarette? c:

The pipes are fine. Don't throw them at anyone or hit anyone with them, obviously. Unfortunately, the costume cigarette is not allowed, by hotel policy. (We've asked about e-cigs before, and they want those outside as well; this would fall under that ruling too.)

As for your second question, a good rule to use is whether your costume covers less than a normal bathing suit does. If it does, we likely won't allow it.

How would you determine if a costume severely obstructs the wearer's line-of-sight? I ask because I'm making two Journey costumes for my sister and friend, and I wouldn't want them to get in trouble. Here is a picture of the hood for reference: http://usandthegamei...Y-character.jpg
I plan to cover the eyes with a sheer white fabric. Would this be alright? If not, what should I do to make the hoods con-friendly?

First, I love the idea of Journey costumes. I wonder if your sister will meet anyone else wearing them?

As long as the wearer of a costume has peripheral vision and can navigate without help from someone else or relying on others to step aside, that costume isn't obstructing line-of-sight. Sheer white fabric is probably thin enough to be just fine.

I just want to check on a rule given it's wording.
Is the prop longer than the congoer's height when carried, if the congoer is at least 4 feet tall?

If the prop is shorter than the con-goer (5' 7", prop is 62" or 5' 2"), but for ease of transportation due to weight the prop will be put in a back mounted "sheath/holder". While in aforementioned holder the prop will be held between 6-10" off the ground, making the handle of the prop taller than the con-goer (much like a tennis racket put inside a backpack will put the butt of the racket 4-8" above the persons head).

Does the "when carried" include both cases, the prop being carried and held by the con-goer as well as inside the "sheath/holder", and if so would this mean the prop is in violation the rules?

Also 44" of the prop is made of 1/4" Acrylite sheet, do I need to attempt to bevel the edges as they are not "sharp" but they are strait square edges.

I was considering (if I have the time and such) of trying to cosplay as Ari from Okage:Shadow King http://img.photobuck...ing-1-ivfzt.jpg (The kid up front basically)

I would really like to make a Stan to loom behind me; sort of like in the picture. I know the rules say nothing sticking out more than 6 inches off your body which I understand and can certainly adhere to. What I was wondering is, does that include straight up? I would like if I could have it about a foot at least above if possible. I would have it to where I can remove it if I need to like sit in a panel or whatever, but when I'm walking around normally would like him to be attached to my back. I am more than willing to work with the rules but just want to know if that counts as something sticking off your person or as a prop ect. Thank you!

The rule that we use says that your costume must fit in a six-inch zone that extends out from your body. So, unfortunately, you cannot have something that extends out a foot from your body.

Thank you for the quick reply. I understand. I thought I would make sure. If I do go ahead with it, I'll just make sure I stick within that range.

Yes, it will still need an orange tip on the end, and that would need to be visible when holstered.


Sorry, quick question on that.

I have a non-firing prop styled after an old percussion revolver. The end of the barrel is blaze orange, it can't be loaded and is non-functional, no worries about breaking rules.

However the holster completely obscures the barrel, and I'd hate to cut away at it to expose the barrel when holstered.

Is there anything I can do to avoid butchering it/finding a new holster?

Thanks

Just to clarify (as well as be on the safe side), I would like to know if my trident prop is within the safe-range of what the convention requires for length. I, myself, am 5 feet tall while my trident stands at about 58 inches, or 4 feet and 8 inches. It is nearly a foot shorter than me--is this allowed or are all props supposed to be 4 feet tall? Again, I just want to be sure. Thank you for your time. :0:

Nope, that's fine - your trident can be up to your height. The only time props have to be 4' or less is when the congoer him/herself is 4' or less as well.

Sorry about that. The same ruling as Manboy's applies: if you're carrying it in a sheath on your back, it can't reach beyond 6 inches from your body - over your head or otherwise. If it does, the only way to get around this and keep its desired length while unsheathed would be to make it collapsible. And no, there would be no need to bevel the edges.

I have a question regarding the sign policy. If you're carrying a sign that is part of your costume and you have something written on the back of it, would this violate the rules at all?

Signs that are parts of costumes are allowed, so long as they do not have hate speech and are not solicitous in nature.

Hello. Will you allow Cammy White Street Fighter costumes at the con? You can google images if you don't know what she looks like. Or Jade or Kitana costumes from Mortal Kombat? I have a couple of those planned. Also, my friend is going to be a darkelf and has a thong type backside, but it is covered with a cape/cloak. The front is covered with a hanging fabric. Similar to to the shape that Tarzan would have worn, but purple or black. He has a couple darkelf costumes. Just want to make sure we can cosplay these at the con. Can't wait. :0).

I don't know the dark elf cosplays, per se, but I do indeed know the ladies you're referencing. :) My recommendation would be to wear nylons underneath said thongs; that way the cosplays won't leave bare skin (and not too much to the imagination).

I'm back again with another query.

Is fake food allowed? To be specific, I have two cotton candy props designed for a duet cosplay; they are made out of quilting polyfil, tapped to small dowel rods, and then simply spray-painted to look like cotton candy. I am halfway certain that "outside food" isn't allowed at the convention (or maybe I'm wrong) so I wanted to check and see if imitations such as these are allowed.

I'm guessing no but... Hammers? Like, actual "I got this at Menard's and painted it" Hammers. Are those alright or not really?

As long as you are being careful with them and not hitting someone with them or handling them dangerously, and they are not longer than you are tall, hammers are fine.

Okay - here is the 9mm pistol prop I've been working on for my cosplay, both holstered and unholstered; I don't think it violates any rules, but I want to be 100% sure before I bring it in.

Also, if anyone reading this is familiar with Amtrak's rules and regulations, are they going to give me a hassle over this?
Why did I choose a Red Ribbon soldier for my cosplay? Because I'm a little short for a Stormtrooper.
