They are banning fake weapons after the incident too.. It's not the same without the props

Paranoia is a bitch... Like, force EVERYONE to remove their fake weapons because 1 bad apple brought real ones? Well, I am for staff doing a casual check and verification to make sure you understand not to randomly swing them at people, but automatic no weapons out of paranoia response? Fuck that shit, they aren't getting my money in the future.

Too bad that a weaponized body can't be banned. Glad I'm going to be cosplaying as a ripped scientist/wrestler, professor kukui. I win against paranoia and censorship...

Ohh wait, they can. They can force me to cover up my sexy abs that I've worked so hard on. (2 months and counting) Dam it!

If attendance drops enough, they may repeal. I say that, because this ban hits cosplayers hard.

Was this the guy after a Power Ranger for reasons I can't even fathom? I remember seeing this one.

So how did the dude that's so batshit crazy he thought he was The Punisher get his hands on 4 guns and body armour? ><

so instead of installing metal detectors...

They don't have any armed security guards or police officers at these events?

So, a large reason for visiting Comicons (Cosplay) is thrown out of the window? How can you cosplay some characters without their iconic weapons?

They believe that the costume alone is sufficient for cosplay.
