Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
PAX West sales have come and gone so now it's time to focus on our next hurdle for our pilgrimage to Seattle: cosplay!
Use this thread to discuss your upcoming cosplay, share wip photos and get help/advice on crafting techniques.
I've added PAX West's weapons policy below
Weapons Check Policies
All prop weapons brought to the show MUST be approved at the Info Booth as soon as you arrive. We will be looking for the following criteria:
It cannot fire any sort of projectile. (Nerf guns are only allowed if they have been deactivated and cannot fire.)
It cannot be an airsoft weapon. (Yes, even if it’s deactivated.)
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)
Upon approval, your weapon and badge will be tagged and cataloged.
Also, last year's rule about expo hall photography still stands: No stopping in the aisles of the expo hall to take pictures. If you are having your photo taken or taking the photo yourself, either step into a booth away from foot traffic or ask the cosplayer/photographer if you can leave the expo hall and take pictures in other parts of the convention center.
