Changes to the Anime Boston Prop Policy
Anime Boston, in working with the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA), Mayor's Office, and Boston Police Department, has made updates to its Prop Policy for 2013.
The current Props policy can be read here: http://www.animeboston.com/coninfo/conv ... ies/#props.
These changes mostly affect the prop check process (aka peace-bonding), but also the use of Projectile Weapons as props. Projectile Weapons (pellet guns, airsoft rifles, pistols, disc guns, paintball markers, water pistols, or other liquid "weapons," etc) will no longer be allowed, whether or not they are functional. These changes were at the direction of the MCCA and Mayor's Office and are not open to debate or appeal.
Please be aware that these changes were worked out before the tragic events of 4/15/13. Due to mitigating circumstances, we were unable to post them until today. If any further developments are made, we will post them as soon as possible.
Please feel free to post at the link below with any questions or concerns.
