There is a character I'm planning to cosplay as in the future and she is thought to drink sake right from the bottle. My father drinks sake often and I was wondering if I could use an empty bottle as a prop rather than making one. I am a minor so I'm not planning to have any liquid inside it and I can't think of another to use instead. Is it against con rules to bring a glass bottle even if it's empty?

A costume or prop is unacceptable if it does any of the following:
Fails to comply with local laws.
Leaves your feet bare.
Has vulgar remarks or hate speech in any language.
Has dangerous protrusions such as spikes or sharp edges.Is a costume that extends more than six inches from your body in any direction. (For example, if your costume has a tail, you may hold it next to your body, but not let it trail out behind you.)Is a prop that is longer than your height. If you are less than four feet tall, your props may be up to four feet long. Props that are too long may be carried in pieces and reassembled for pictures.
Impedes the view of others during seated events.
Has a tightly-strung bowstring.
Has a laser pointer or similar capability.
Has parts made of live steel. Live steel is defined an object crafted from metal that has a point or blade-like edge, whether blunt or sharp. Live steel purchased from vendors must stay boxed while in convention space.
Is a gun-like prop without an orange tip. Gun-like props also must have their firing mechanisms disabled and have no ammunition loaded.
Is a real firearm.
Is being used or handled unsafely.
Is determined by convention staff to be unsafe. The department head of IRT has final say on the acceptability of any costume or prop.



I see no rule against glass bottles.

This should be fine. Please make sure it's completely dry, and be prepared to put it in your room if there is any confusion.

It would probably be fine, I've seen Yowane Haku cosplayers in the past bring around sake bottles, and whether they were glass or not never seemed to matter. The only problem would possibly be the glass breaking...
