Boffer (Foam Swordfighting)

Post by lolitzkin » Fri Feb 01, 2013 1:24 am

Last year a bunch of people gathered outside of the food court with foam swords and had an awesome time battling it out. Because this wasn't/isn't sponsored by AB people brought their own weapons of foamy death. I'm interested in doing this again and I have a few swords. Lets organize a group so that we can relive some of last years swashbuckling fun!

I know someone who is coming and bringing weapons. I'm expecting this to go down in the grass outside of the Prudential Mall food court, which is where most of last years action took place.

Come on down!

I have two, but i'll most likely bring one because because they're flimsy and i don't want them to brake as long as it doesn't conflect i'm down....but i don't know if i'd want to stand inline with them for wepons check since they're not part of my cosplay


edit: i suggest we don't do this outside consdering how cold it's been and there still is a chance there may be snow on the ground by then...so we'd have to do it inside and bring some ducktape to square a section of the mall off for us...


or we could try to do it in one of the un used panel rooms at the time (ie the ball room which won't be used during the day) we can ask them NICELY if they can keep it open for us before the dances start so we can have a space of our own....
cosplays i have complete:
Rocket Member (myself as a team rocket member)
Yurio (yuri on ice)
Rinku (yu yu hakusho
Magi (aladdin Magnoshetot)

I am only so nice once your mean to me i will ignore you and pretend you don't exist: childish but effective
