weapons and chibicon
Hey all,

I've recently bought a cheap bokken from ebay, 40" long, made of 'hardwood' (so described by the seller). I've tried contacting Chibicon, but my emails to keep getting 'failure' notifications.

Anyone know if this kind of prop will be allowed? Or should I begin working on a softer, lighter sword of my own creation?

Or, does anyone know an email address that works? Anyone else had this problem contacting the organisers?

Thanks for any help you all can provide.

I can't specifically speak for chibicon but the majority of events won't let you carry a Bokken as part of a floor cosplay. There just not safe items to be carried in public or crowded places.

You really should take every effort to make your props as light and safe as possible.

Yeah, that's kinda what I thought. Thanks for your opinion, anyway

Ok! I have some foam lying around. Or I could make a sword from lighter wood. Any ideas? I dunno if cardboard would be a good material for such a thin prop...
