Question for security staff, or anyone that can answer

Post by Fireburned » Fri Jan 12, 2018 4:09 pm

This is a question for anyone that will be with security, or anyone that can DEFINITELY answer this question.
Going as the Raider from For Honor, and i am currently crafting his dane axe out of cheap wood from home depot, im going to be sawing, sanding, and painting this thing so it looks really good. My question here is, what are the chances that this wont be allowing in through security? i would be putting in a lot of effort into this thing, and i would never swing it at someone.
Everything on the axe will be made of cheap wood, even the axe head.

We can't pre approve or comment on props until they're at con in the hands of security for inspection.

Ask yourself this as a guideline instead - If your prop hits a person, what will break first? person or prop?

The pole would definitley break from swinging it at anything, the axe head is made out of cheap wood, if they try to deny it can i bring up these points or is that a no go?

Because it's their building, Hynes Security does have the final say on props. If your prop is denied, Hynes Security will hold on to it for you and you can pick it up when you leave the building.
