Prop Weapons.

Post by solusskirata » Tue Mar 28, 2017 11:30 am

I was wondering if I would be allowed to bring in 2 plastic lightsabers, (Made in Disney), and my Star Wars Clone blaster. With the blaster, I have been admitted into Mohegan Sun, and Northeast Comic Con. I wanted to make sure, because I dont have time for a new cosplay. Thank you for any help.

The lightsabers will probably be fine (I've seen a lot of people with them). The blaster is a little more iffy, as Boston's pretty nervous about guns in general. We can't tell you definitively whether they will be allowed or not until our security staff has a chance to look them over at the convention.

Okay thank you. I did look at the mass laws (I live in western mass) and it does comply with state standards. It has an orange tip, and has no openings where any bullets/pellets can come out. It can only make lights and sounds.

You should be fine with both. Last year I had a Kylo Ren lightsaber (just a toy one from Target, nothing fancy) and they tagged it but didn't give me a problem. And a couple years ago I brought two somewhat realistic looking (one of which was pretty big) guns for my Winter Soldier cosplay and again they tagged it but didn't give me a problem. Just to err on the safe side though if you can keep your blaster in a bag or out of sight while you're outside the con that is probably best.
