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!
Now that tickets sales have come and gone and most of the ticket hype dust has settled, I thought it would be a good idea to get the cosplay thread up!
Please feel free to use this thread for all things cosplay related. Post what cosplays you plan on bringing, ask for advice on upcoming cosplays, find others who are cosplaying the same game, series or franchise as you, etc.
For first timers: PAX generally isn't as cosplay-heavy as other conventions but there are rules in terms of props and attire that all cosplaying attendees MUST follow:
(These are lifted from the PAX website)
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.
Cosplaying attendees may be asked to alter or modify their costume if it is considered overtly sexual.
