    Hey all!

    I know we still have about 4 months until DCC but I wanted to start up a dialogue early so folks can have ample prep time and planning. This would be my first group meetup at a con so some of the vets should feel free to jump in with best practices, 405th policies, suggestions, etc...

    That being said, who here was planning on or is interested in some 405th representation at DCC this year?

    Bumping this thread again to get some activity rolling. We have some great member in the MTN division and I know myself and others would love to see a noteworthy gathering at DCC to show off to the other regions!

    I think we decided via the Facebook group to meet up Sunday, I'll chat with Gilmortar to figure out some times. I'll be in my MC all day sunday. I am also hosting a pretty fun panel Saturday if any of you are coming but can't make it Sunday, its called Versus! and its in room 304 at 1035 AM. Its a who would win nerd argument, MC is in the tournament so show up and lets see if we can bring the MC to the finals!

    Just checking so I don't get in trouble, how exactly do you cover up your weapon props?

    cover up? You mean, make them convention friendly?

    Beyond the orange tip is there anything else that has to be done, also is it best to just put the props in a bag upon exiting the convention?
     
  11. Gilmortar

    Not really, because none of the hotels are attached to the convention center in anyway, its normal for folks to be walking back and forth there in costume and with their props... best bit of advice, coming from me a Combat Infantryman in the Army.... don't play around with your weapon in public... and you won't have to worry.

    For the con though, I'm sure they will do a security check and PeaceBonding at the door as standard.

    So you haven't had any issue with steel/black coloring?
     
  13. Gilmortar

    Gilmortar 405th Regiment Officer

    Nah, I've even painted the orange tip off an airsoft, the real thing is not being an idiot (sorry it's the best way to say it). Don't point it at anyone, keep your finger off the trigger at all times, and when you aren't at the convention, don't carry it in any way to interpret as a weapon...is: carry it like this when you aren't at the convention Aussie-carrying-AK471-522x600.jpg

    I posted this to the closed FB group already but if your not on there often here it is again.

    OK folks, heres the deal. We are going to get together Sunday afternoon for photos in the lobby of the convention center. It doesn't matter what you are wearing or if you have your armor done, we just want to meet in person and take a few pictures. What time works best for all of you? (if I don't hear anyone speak up Ill just pick something) I will be down there at the time we pick no matter what for a bit just look for the huge hammer.
    Gilmore/Hydraworx have generously donated a resin cast of a Ghost from Destiny that will be raffled off to anyone who shows up. Just show up, I'll give you a number, at the end of the meetup I'll pick a number and BoOm its all yours.
    I will also be hosting a panel at 10:35 AM Saturday in room 304 if anyone wants to pop in and say hi if you can't make it Sunday.
    Please feel free to PM me or comment here for any questions or time suggestions.
