I'm new to attending events and I am interested in cosplaying. I'd like to cosplay a random Mother Base soldier and I was wondering about replica guns. I read the rules covering weapons and how if guns look real they aren't allowed. So I guess my question would be does anyone know where to find toy guns that would work or is there something I can do to show that they are in fact replica weapons. I'd prefer to not buy toy guns because I would prefer to go all out for my first cosplay.
Also if anyone has any cool cosplay stories or other things I should be aware of please share! The more information I get the better!
