    There is a small group of us doing characters from Hyrule Warriors. I however am doing my own design if Princess Hilda was in Hyrule Warriors based off the piece I created.
    There is around 10 of us so far partaking in it.

    Besides that I'm doing a gijinka Pangoro and maybe a third cosplay. All depending on funds and time.

    For me as followed,

    Spetsnaz Soldier - Battlefield 4
    Noob aka "Neebs" - Battlefield Friends
    UNSC Marine - Halo (Maybe)

    Also if I complete in time,
    Deadpool Crossover with Professor Oak. I will have a sign over my head of "What's my Grandson's Name?!" and holding up another sign which you can write down the name on the board. Will probably have GoPro cam on my head to record the experience lol.

    Likely doing a Riot cosplay, but also thinking about some Final Fantasy depending on time/groupings. Glad tickets are over so I can actually start planning.

    Same here! Doing Arcade MF and then trying to figure out if I should do a FFXIV cosplay, another Riot cosplay, or try to show some love for some of my favorite tabletop games. Last year I did Valkyrie Leona and Liliana from Magic the Gathering.

    Nice :D Love the Valkyrie Leona skin <3 Making an Azir for the hubby. I did a last-minute fan skin Arcade MF this year and debating a fan skin again with simple elements so I'll have time to focus on Azir and toss mine together otherwise. Didn't want to start planning until we definitely had tickets, so now a little limited on free time. All else fails, just going to revive a previous costume for myself :P

    Loving the new arcade MF though - esp the hair and the guns. So fun!

    Red Mage has been my favorite Final Fantasy job for the longest time, so I'd love to pull together the FFXI artifact armor (Warlock Set). And since my costuming skills are well below average, I might spend the majority of my time and money on RDM, reuse my Rick Sanchez costume from Halloween, and round it out with something very simple like a TF2 Scout.

    The costumer I contacted to commission some of the bigger pieces for Red Mage isn't going to help me anymore, so that fell through this year. So now I'm planning on cosplaying a FF1 Black Mage on Saturday, and I'll be putting together a Harry Dresden and TF2 Scout for the other days.

    Last year was my first year ... I did it on Sat and Sun. This year I will most likely dress all 3 days.

    I had so much fun. The amount of compliments I got really made all the work I put into it worth it. Was even more fun when other people dressed as other TF2 characters wanted to do group pics.

    On Sat I spent like 2 hours just wandering the halls taking pictures. I forgot there was an expo hall :)

    Two years ago was the first time I had ever done cosplay, at the time DayZ was running wild so I chose to go as the Hero Skin DayZ survivor. This year Im going to bust out Dudley from SSFIV on Friday, and Saturday I'll be going as Sebastian Castellanos from The Evil Within. Still trying to figure out my sunday costume, its looking like Im going to go as the Wiggle guy from the popular DayZ youtube video.

    Cant wait to see what everybody brings!

    Daughter and I want to do a 2 person costume set, but after dragging the Ghostbusters proton pack last year and dealing with fedex, costume damage, and a far away hotel, it's got to be something a lot less complicated this year. Probably nothing super complicated. So probably soft costumes, not armor. It'll have to fit in a normal suitcase this time around.

    Personally I see no reason why they would not let him bring that in. It does not break any of the weapon rules.

    Just because it looks real does not make it dangerous. It's made of nylon and vinyl with zero sharp edges. And looks pretty badass :)

    I have seen MANY weapons that look real at PAX East over the years.

    I plan on bringing a shotgun and pistol with me.

    Maybe someone with more authority here can say if its allowed or not.

    just with the way they did bag searches last year and the police presence and with how much that looks like a real collapsible weapon. also the way its made out of ridged plastic and looks like its got a pretty pointed tip and if jabbed could be dangerous

    "It cannot be sharp or pointy enough to cut or pierce someone with moderate pressure. This includes all real swords, daggers and knives. It also includes ceramic blades, needles, syringes and anything that can pierce (for example, a Little Sister syringe made of wood would not be allowed)"

    the geek chic booth wasn't even aloud to sell the wooden weapons at pax last year

    I'm just stating my opinion even though it does indeed look bad ass...i kinda want it.

    edit ...its like $350 ...yeah im not buying it lol i wouldn't dare bringing something that pricy to a con

    No airsoft allowed, no matter what you've done with it.

    If the tips and edge are really blunt as described then it would be fine. It doesn't look like they are in the picture. The end looks pointy enough to pierce and that would be a dis-qualifier. It could probably be sanded down easily.

    This year I plan on putting together a Rangers of the Order cosplay, from Metro Last Light (and somewhat 2033)
    Really excited :D it was my second choice because I didn't give myself enough time to work on my original choice...
    I originally wanted to make a Planetside 2 NC Engineer cosplay. But between the fiberglass armor crafting and such, I really don't want to rush it over a few months... i'm so bad with procrastination.

    So, my fallback cosplay is now a Metro Ranger... which still may prove to be somewhat challenging, as a lot of the equipment will need to be custom crafted... (it all looks authentic, but many pieces, like the plate carrier and helmets, are custom made for the game, while being inspired by real world counterparts)
    F7TUg7W.jpg
    EmtGaKu.png
    I'm hoping that the helmet and markings are iconic enough that people will actually recognize it o.o
    Nowadays, it almost feels like anything based around tactical gear / real-world military equipment, is almost overlooked x.x



    Also! Fun, helpful tip for anyone out there who wants to use a realistic looking gun for their cosplay (figured it'd be nice to help others :3)
    Since airsoft guns are NOT allowed, which is usually everyone's option for a cosplay prop that uses real-world guns, I would suggest looking into Blue Guns.

    http://www.blueguns.com/

    Blue Guns is a company that makes official police and military training weapons. They are 1:1 scaled, complete replicas of real-world counterparts, and they are weighted as well to feel like an actual gun. They do this to train operators on maneuvers and handling, without having to shell out money for multiple real-steel training weapons.
    But here is the catch. They are made out of HARD RUBBER, not plastic or metal. There are no moving parts; magazine isn't removable, no slide movement, no bolts, safety switch, hammer, etc... it is one, solid piece of shaped hard rubber. There isn't even a barrel, it is a barrel tip for length, but it isn't hollow.
    And, they carry replicas of MOST modern firearms. Pistols, SMGs, Rifles, Carbines...
    They can be a little pricey for some, but it's a nice alternative if you are really dedicated to having a replica weapon as a prop.
    Pistols usually average at about $60. Rifles and large guns can peak it at about $170 o.o

    You can buy them on amazon, by the way. :)


    Last year I went as Leon Kennedy (RE2 edition), and I carried around his Punisher 9mm (which is actually based off of the FN Five-seveN 5.7mm).
    Since the guns are hard rubber, you can paint them very easily.
    Security allowed mine last year, and actually complimented the clever thinking of it. So, it should be completely legal to bring along :)
    How the gun looks at first

    Blue guns are great. They just need to be checked and they are good to go. They are a great alternative to airsoft guns.

    Just don't have them on display outside of the convention and you should be good to go.

    First time pax attendee and first time cosplayer here. I figured I would throw in my two cents. I'm putting together a wasteland wanderer cosplay based on the Fallout series (in the hope of bringing good luck to an announcement some time this year). I'm not planning on weapons or super heavy layers, but any general advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Pretty excited to bring my new Chromie cosplay from World of Warcraft to both PAX south and east! Just a few more details and it should be all set. Honestly I don't know how I made it in two weeks, but that sure is what went down. I ordered materials during the holidays when my work was crazy and hit the ground running New Year's Day. Still more details, armor fitting to do. c8rz2lmstnxl.jpg
