Weapon tips
« on: January 12, 2020, 05:07:52 PM »
I am planning on going as Bucky and my husband thought I could use an airsoft gun as one of my props. Not sure how good of an idea that is since it might still be considered a weapon. Any tips or ideas that you've done for past Cons that have worked well for you?

I'm sorry, but that just sounds like a really bad idea.

For reference CCI's Costume Props Policy is listed on this page: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

It states:

Quote
No functional props or weapons are allowed at Comic-Con. Simulated or costume weapons are allowed as a part of your costume, subject to prior approval by security and compliance with the following:

All costume props and weapons must be inspected at one of the Costume Props Desks.

There are two locations: one near the outside door in the lobby of Hall E, and the second in Lobby C2, between the escalators.

  • All costume props and weapons must conform to state and federal law.
  • Projectile costume props and weapons must be rendered inoperable.
  • Functional (real) arrows must have their tips removed and be bundled and zip-tied to a quiver.
  • Costume swords must be tied to your costume in such a way that they can’t be drawn.
  • Costumes featuring stilts must be approved at the Costume Props Desk.

At certain times, due to crowds and safety issues, people in oversized costumes may be asked to leave the Exhibit Hall.

After your costume props have been checked, they will be tagged by security, and you will be given a wristband to wear to designate that your props have been checked.

Security will escort you to the Costume Props Desk for inspection if your costume prop is not tagged.

If you do not want to have your costume props inspected or tagged, or if you are not willing to comply with these policies, please do not bring your costume weapons to Comic-Con.

All costume props and weapons must be inspected at the Costume Props Desks.
